We frequently receive questions about what is and isn't allowed in our community, so we are posting a reminder. On The Bump we do not allow soliciting or advertising in any capacity
-No posts about your business
-If a member asks for a business recommendation, you cannot respond with yours
-In your signature, you cannot mention your business, or link to it. You can link to your personal blog if you have one. If your personal blog has a link to your etsy store, we are ok with that. However, please do not list items and their prices on your personal blog, essentially creating an extension of your store.
If you are unsure about what's allowed (this can be confusing), just follow one general rule
: other members should not be able to guess that you are a vendor of any sort.
. This applies to all sorts of businesses - photographers, daycare, graphic designers, etc...
Thanks for your cooperation. If you are unsure about something, feel free to ask your moderator. If you don't have a moderator on your favorite board, keep an eye out for posts about applying to become one.
