Etsy Team Cymru Banner

Hello to all Etsy Team Cymru. I hope you don't mind that I have uploaded a banner. Its from one of my photos of Pembroke Castle and I thought it would be nice to have the Welsh Flag on the banner. The photo above is just a random picture at Cardiff Central, because I don't like blog posts without an image.

I did put an introduction on here about myself but something funny is going on with posts etc. Anyways, I am originally from Ireland but live in Wales. It would be nice to get this blog going again because it seems very quiet at the moment.

One of my suggestions was that each Team Cymru member have turns about being promoted by the other members, e.g. Blogging about them, Twitter, treasuries etc. I took part in something similar for UK Etsy and it worked quite well. So if anyone is around and has any other ideas about kick starting things and promoting not just individuals but Team Cymru also, please post.
