Announcing the Orchid Blog Network

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – October 17, 2008
Announcing the Orchid Blog Network

Blogging-Made-Easy for Jewelers and Metalsmiths, and for those
working in the gem and jewelry-related fields.


(Currently Online – 65 blogs)

If you have been considering your own Blog, but haven’t yet, the
Orchid Blog Network may be perfect for you! We are passionate about
empowering Jewelers, Metalsmiths and Lapidary artists, and we hope it

To that end, we’ve combined the atmosphere of the Orchid Forums with
easy-to-use Blog tools to give our Members the opportunity to be seen
and heard. A single Blog, on your own, may not generate the interest
it deserves, but by being part of the Orchid Network your Blog will
attract both attention and readers!

Orchid Members can now have an online presence within minutes of
joining, and have access to resources that come from being part of a
community of our size. We think you’ll enjoy the difference!

It’s easy to create a Blog. For example, you can share your
jewelry-making techniques, pictures of your work, your design
thoughts, discuss Art Shows you have participated in, or museums you
have visited, just for starters. Jewelry Schools can cover events,
classes and happenings within their facility. Businesses can use
their Blog space as a repository of press releases, company
announcements and provide their Staff with a chance to share their
passion for their work with the outside world.

In case you already run a Blog site, we offer specialized migration
tools which will transfer your existing Blog to the Orchid Blog
website in a single-click. The migration tool will not delete your
old Blog but will duplicate it on Ganoksin.

Participation is absolutely FREE
