Welcome to DC, Gary
Hope you enjoy it here as much as we do!!

AndyM, would it be trying to sell on the sight if he just puts his website in his signature.
He wouldn't be actually trying to sell with an advertisement, just showing us his website.

Well, if you're all from the USA, you probably wouldn't buy from me anyway as the shipping costs would be high.

hello Gary! Welcome to our family!
Yes, you can put your site as your sig, just don't "advertise" in your postings. (Basic common sense is always best!) While we sad you can't post your fudge recipes, and even sadder that we're way across the pond....we'd love to hear about your other recipes - you obviously know your way around chocolates....any cookies/cakes you are brilliant with?
As for promoting your site, local craft fairs are a good start, as you mentioned, but are there any large-scale fairs in your area? I know that in my area, there is a huge craft fair that goes from Southern California to Nevada, New Mexico, and Arizona, in about 15 stops. The folks that produce their own foods say it is really the best way to get their product known. Then, when the consumer runs out, they purchase on the website till the fair is back in town.
Best of luck, and we look forward to hearing more from you!

Hey Gary, welcome to the site! I understand about your fudge recipe. I have a website where I sell caramels and there are 3 people in the world that know how to make the recipe. Even if you had the recipe I don't think it would help as most still wouldn't know exactly what to do with it to get the desired results! Anyway, I hope you enjoy it here. I'm new and I have been very impressed and pleased with this forum.

BTW - Worcestershire is a beautiful place to live! I love England and Scotland... Wouldn't mind moving there some day, just can't imagine not living in the states...
