What a great idea! An interactive site that allows users (easy to become one btw) to post just about anything! Events in your area, topics about this or that, post images of your work...etc. Funky Finds, is a great source for finds from indie artists and crafters and Jessica Hood is a honey (and her little dog, tooooo...) She has started Funky Town - great name!
She has a "... commitment to promoting independent artists, crafters & designers. Funky Town is a great tool to further promote your work and events, as well as networking with other creative professionals."
I haven't made a post yet or figured the whole thing out, but it seems like a great idea. I hope it doesn't turn into a bulletin board advertising because no one will come if there is no interesting content. I urge you to write something and post it up there.
Who knows. Maybe it can create an interesting community of indies.
