16 Great Websites to Submit Your Craft Projects

Today I am sharing with you some great websites to submit your craft projects! 

As a blogger, we all work very hard to produce a post from the project itself, to photos, and writing the post.   We need to get all the exposure we can to those projects.  I have compiled a list of some great sites to submit your projects.  This is Part 1 of a 2 part post!  Yes friends, there's lots of great websites out there just waiting on you to submit your projects to them!  


                                                                                 
16 Great Websites to submit and share craft projects     Life on Lakeshore Drive




I am sure that we would all agree that Pinterest, Facebook, and Twitter bring lots of traffic to our blogs.  I have also found out that the more unique places you share it, the more traffic you get.  

Linky Parties are without a doubt, a great way to share to your posts.  I love nothing better than sharing at all the wonderful linky parties each week.  I have found that linky parties are the best way to make awesome friends and meet new bloggers.  I have a Linky Party Page that has lots of fantastic places to party each week.  If you host a linky party, and it's not on my page, PLEASE link it up!  I love to PARTAY each week!  I  host a weekly Bouquet of Talent party that starts every Saturday evening.


Here is a list  where I submit some of my projects.  By sharing your projects at a variety of places, you reach a new audience.  Many people are just looking for a certain project, and they have their favorite sites to find those projects.  

The sites I'm sharing in this post are quick and easy submits.  They take a minimal amount of time.  Some less than a minute.  

Have you submitted your great projects to these sites listed below?



Hometalk      brings a huge amount of traffic to my blog and is very easy to add                                  projects!

StumbleUpon      is another easy site to add your projects and brings consistent                                     pageviews.


Reddit Crafts       is a very quick and easy way to submit your projects.





Similar to Pinterest


Bead & Cord  I discovered this one, when I kept getting lots of pageviews from 
                           this site.  


Indulgy      is another site where you pin your projects to your board.


The sites below have submit pages and the projects are subject to approval.



All Free Holiday Crafts      is an excellent site to submit your project link.



All Free Christmas Crafts    is just like the link above, except for Christmas                                                                    projects only.  

Craft Gossip      is a fantastic website for views if your project is chosen.  


DIY Cozy Home   asks for link, short description and permission to use a photo.                                  

Dollar Store Crafts   is a great place to submit those Dollar Store crafts.


Totally Tutorials    links your tutorials back to your blog.                                           


30 Minute Crafts     is a site for  projects that take 30 minutes or less.


Fun Family Crafts     is a site for kid's projects only.




Craftqawker     is very picky about the photos, etc., but the traffic is well worth                                  the  effort.



Find & Craft      are awesome to work with, and they are very fast in with their                                     responses to submissions.


Make & Takes     is also very quick with their responses.



Now for the big question......what other great sites am I missing?  If you have some other places that are not on the list, please let me know and I will add them to the part 2 of this post!

Thank you Kathy! I read somewhere that we should spend 80% of our time promoting our posts, and 20% developing/writing them. Most of us do it the other way around, including moi!
