Yeah, Cafepress is rather limited in what they offer. FWIW, all prices are base cost without a HST markup. Cost would have been too high with additional markup.

Done! I added this site and the others that I frequent to the sidebar of my blog. I hope it helps.

Cheers!

I hate to seem like a dummy, but could you elaborate on this request? I guess I don't understand. I want to help HST.

Hi ESH,

Your question makes me wonder if you may have missed the original post to the thread?
ERIC wrote:HST Members,

I know many of you have your own Websites, and most of you have profiles on other message boards and community sites. And knowing that, I'm asking for your help.

One of the easiest ways to drive traffic to HST is to have links to it throughout the Internet. A link to this site generates direct click-through traffic, but more importantly, increases search engine page rank which drives additional traffic here by way of search engines. Search engines are almost always the biggest generator of Website traffic. And here's where you come in...

Since you're already here, and probably visit the site regularly, I can only assume you enjoy HST enough that asking to link to it in some way, shape or form isn't an inappropriate request. You don't have to have your own site with a links page to help. If you're a member of one or more community-based sites other than HST, and profile options on those sites include the ability to add a personal link (or signature where you can include a link), add a link to HST. Linking to HST in that manor can be just as valuable as a link on a links page somewhere (if not more so). Any link to HST helps - it doesn't matter where the link is.

For those of you who have been around a while, you know that I don't ask for money to support this site. In fact, many of you know I have a personal policy of refusing financial assistance. This is a FREE way you can help. The success of HST is entirely dependent on the quality of topics and responses on these forums. The easier we make it for people with similar interests and valuable input to find the site, the better the experience becomes for all who visit HST. Hopefully I'm not the only one who feels this way, and some of you are willing to give back by way of this simple request.

If you have questions, or would like some technical assistance with implementing this request, please PM me. I'm more than happy to help.

Cheers,

Eric
...and if you already saw this, I guess I'm wondering what I can be more specific about. Are you wondering where you might be able to post a link?

Great idea Eric. I just added HST to the links page on my blog.
