DIGITAL SCRAPBOOKING SITES



Part 1 are the oldest sites, Part 2 are the next oldest, Part 3 the next oldest, and Parts 4 & 5 are the newest sites.

It constantly amazes me how many digital scrapbooking sites open and then close. This list is constantly changing. Many think that they can make money with this hobby only to find a struggle. The market is saturated. Accolades to those that stand the test of time.

Here is an old note from me when this list was original posted:
It has been an illuminating view of the deterioration of the digital scrapbooking world. I remember in 2006, 2007, and 2008 how the digital scrapbooking world exploded and there were more new sites popping up than we could keep track of. Everyone thought they could make some extra money. At one time my list was over 200!  Since 2011, the decline has been steady. It is actually rather sad. Here is a list from our forum thread.  Of course, there were many more, but these are only the ones people noted in the forum.


Just a note from me.  I have been really struggling with Hummie's World too.  At the peak of the digital scrapbooking world activity, it was awesome.  At that time, I continued to make changes to the site to keep up with the growth that I could not keep up with on the site. It was all consuming! Now in the recent year and a half, I have had to continue to downsize to meet the decline.  I am happy using Flickr for our layouts and Etsy for my products.  Those were good choices to downsize.  I am determined to stay around as I love this hobby very much.  


I feel the decline has happened in the digiworld for several reasons.  First, natural supply and demand.  There were just too many stores and not all of them could be sustained.  Second, the initial excitement about the hobby has drained and people are always wanting something new.  Third, social networking has exploded and people no longer need to use forums to fulfill social needs.   Fourth, everyone wants something for free if they can get it for free and there are certainly enough free options for education and products to keep people from spending their money to support this hobby and the cost of running sites.


Things change.  We adapt.


Thank you to everyone who has supported Hummie's World financially and continue to do so on a voluntary basis.  I appreciate you more than you know!
