Jessika Hepburn — the wizard of the what might be the most creative community on the internet — Oh My! Handmade — is my guest today.

Oh My! Handmade is what I would call Seth Godin’s Tribes on STEROIDS.  Jessika has mastered the art of ‘How To Build An Online Community’ and she demonstrates her art by orchestrating a team of  30+ contributors, who explore a monthly theme enriched by diverse backgrounds, insight and perspective.

Here are some highlights from our CHAT:

  • Discuss how Jessika stumbled upon Oh My! Handmade and ended up buying the site
  • Discuss the importance of community and how to build an online community by finding a gap in the market
  • Talk about the importance diversity when building an online community
  • Discuss the fact that Jessika was not a blogger and had to learn the daily ins and outs of blogging and building community
  • Talk about tips for building an online community by treating it like a small town
  • Talk about the importance of paying it forward and engaging
