I would join a blogging communtiy and be very involved. You make friends there and help each other with traffic numbers. From the most successful blogs I have seen they also use Twitter to drive traffic their way. The only way to make money is to let people you know you exist.
Check out CafeMom craft groups specific to your crafting and I know there are some very successful moms involved here. Not all sell on Etsy but it is a place to find out what is popular and current.
