Hi Shackies,

I hope everyone is doing well. Your latest gallery uploads are looking really great! I am definitely going to help my daughter who is 8 and super artistic get into this as she really loves all the work you have done.

OK down to business... I know a lot of you have links to your blogs in your signature. I also noticed when I visit your sites that most of you already link back to us which is really great and in the spirit of the internet and our humble Stamp Shack.

I am adding a link back to the Shack as a requirement now. It is the neighborly thing to do always and will help us filter out anyone who is here for their own promotional purposes only.

Code for the link can be found in the Guidelines located here (http://stamp-shack.com/forum/showthread.php?t=259)

As always I am open to your feedback.

Thanks,
Mike

is that the stamp shack thing I have on my blog that when clicked brings you to the shack?

Yes it is the same code. I will get some new sizes and versions made when I can so people have a choice.

Thank you,
Mike

I've added it to my blog... but when will other options be available?

so let me understand this...If you want to have a link to your blog in your signature, you are required to have a link from your blog back to the Stamp Shack. Kind of a reciprocal agreement?
That sounds fair enough. if you want to use the Shack to promote your blog, then you must use your blog to promote the Stamp-Shack in return. Don't want to put a link to the Stamp-Shack on your blog...take your bloglink out of your signature. Too Easy!

Makes sense!

I don't blog but it sounds like you should put the link to the Shack on your blog before you put your blog link on your signature.

Sounds good to me. I am pretty sure mine is already that way but I am off to go check right now as I am not a huge blogger.

Hi,

Either way is fine. I'm not going to be freaking out the second I don't see it on someone's blog but I'll probably check again a week later. Appreciate everyone's support! :)

Thanks,
Shackie Mike

Must it be an image clickable link or is a text clickable link ok?

Like I have on my blog? Right side, near the top?

If that's not ok I'll grab your code that's fine.

It is in my sidebar as well.

A text link to the shack would be fine as well. Would be great if it was a text link for "rubber stamping" the code would be <a href="http://www.stamp-shack.com">rubber stamping</a>

I'll update the official thread shortly. Thanks for asking!

Mike
