Best Sites to Submit Craft Tutorials To

As a blogger who not only blogs for fun, but also a little money, I'm constantly looking for ways to get more exposure for my tutorials and projects. Aren't we all?  Lets face it, there's so much competition these days. You have to really work to get yourself out there.

Over the years I've discovered a few great sites that have helped boost my page views tremendously. Today I want to share them with you!

Here's my little list of the sites I have found to be the most helpful so far (other than the obvious Pinterest and Facebook)
Best Sites to submit craft tutorials to
Craft Gossip:  You can submit a craft in a wide variety of categories on this site.  Just fill out the form and make sure to select the right category.  I've had a lot of luck with getting stuff featured here.

Craftgawker:  This site has probably made the biggest difference in my monthly page views.  I went from 25,000 page views to over 50,000 page views the first month I submitted projects and got featured and it keeps getting better the more I projects I submit. This site is quite competitive though.  You have to have really great photos to get featured, but it's worth the effort.  

Saved by Love Creations:  This site featured my Tin Can Lanterns last year and I still get lots of page views from this site.  I have to admit though, that I didn't actually submit my tutorial for this one. The blogger found my project on her own so I don't know exactly how hard it is to get featured on there.

DIY Cozy Home:  This is one I stumbled on recently.  I've gotten over 2,000 page views from it this month!

One Pretty Thing:  One of my favorite sites.  Just send an email with your project and the link and you can usually get featured here without too much trouble.

Totally Tutorials:  This one is also pretty easy to get featured on.  You fill out a simple form.  Nothing complicated.

Dollar Store Crafts:  Another great site for low cost crafts.

30 Minute Crafts: Submit craft tutorials that take either 10, 15, or 30 minutes to make.  Cool Stuff!

Tangled Happy:  This one is for crochet projects.  I think everything I have ever submitted to this one has been featured.  Awesome!

Ravelry:  A large database of crochet and knitting patterns.  You can post your patterns for free or sell them.

All Free Sewing:  Submit sewing tutorials or patterns here and you'll get quite a few more page views.


So.......am I missing any?  What sites have helped promote your work?  Please share!

  19. Great information! Thanks for sharing!

    I haven't had too much experience with this yet, but I did have more hits from being featured on Better After, a site that highlights all kinds of makeover projects. It's a fun site to just check out too.

  20. This is brilliant. I keep meaning to join Craftgawker, so it's good to know it's at the top of your list.

    I've also found a site called find and craft ( http://findandcraft.com/ ) that you can easily submit tutorials to. I've put some of mine on already.
    You can check out my blog at www.fallfordiy.com to see the kinds of tutorials I do.

    Thanks for the great blog post

  22. Thanks a lot. This was exactly what I was looking for. I recently made a video tutorial for some brooches and I wasn't sure what to do about it.
