Be on HomeTalk – a place to share, learn and grow

How to use HomeTalk - Take the Tour! via Funky Junk Interiors

 

One day Miriam from HomeTalk knocked on my door (emailed me) and invited me to share my crate toilet paper holder.  I knew of this site as being a helpful community for all things home, but I had NO idea.


we could just share any given project there on our own!

So I went to further investigate. This was no small community with 100,000 members and 400,000 Facebook followers! And you know how us bloggers are… we love to share what we create.  So, I shared.

The result? (click HERE to visit)

Over 6,000 views , 29 very kind comments, 388 shares and 21 likes in an all new community! Wow. So, I shared again.

Goodness gracious… 11,000 views, 40 comments, 554 shares, 30 likes…

So I kept sharing. Then started commenting on other’s posts. And quite honestly started having a really good time! But I noticed something else was transpiring at the same time.

People were asking questions on home issues and getting  answers from pros. Really? For free?!

YES! Oh my.

Not only that, those that didn’t have blogs were uploading their projects and questions. Now that is something we’ve needed for a long long time, wouldn’t you agree?

So, that’s exactly what HomeTalk is. It’s a community built for home owners, renters, and contractors that shares inspiration via home projects and home products, and is a place to ask your tough DIY questions. It’s for everyone!

Here’s how it works.

I was lazy and just clicked Sign up with Facebook.


If you sign up the website route and you aren’t from USA, you may run into a zip code issue. That’s being sorted out. For now, sign up as a USA state or through Facebook.

  1. OH you are so sweet! You just featured my chandy… and I just discovered I don’t have it watermarked. Going to have to fix that real quick!! Thanks you are such a doll! OH and I need to drop you an e-mail real soon…. might be a day or two before you hear from me though as my boys just home yesterday so it laundry time for me. But I love having them back home so there is no complaining from me! :)

    • Do you mean traffic stats? If so, if you put your blog’s url in your post and someone clicks on it, that would give you a hit on your home turf. This is why it’s so important to add your urls. You want people to be able to find you.

      Being on HomeTalk will offer bloggers a broader audience (it’s a huge community!) that wouldn’t have otherwise seen you, much like joining a new link party. It’s a great chance to grow your blog even further.

  2. I was so pleased to read about your post and hometalk, only to be really bummed since they dont accept me since i dont have a USA zip code and i live in South Africa. No worries though cos i follow your fabulous blog, TFS
