I feel like I’ve been going about things totally backwards.
Most people start blogging when they want to draw attention to their products or online shop. Having a weblog is just another form of social media, another check at the end of a very long list of ways to promote yourself on the internets. I started writing these posts as way to keep myself experimental, to have somewhere to share my creations and force myself to bring something to the table twice a week.
As this little journey has been expanding, I’ve put some thought into which direction I would like to head in. While mostly the path seems unclear, focusing more on needlework is a must. Stitching has always been a pleasant experience for me, it keeps me sane in times of anxiety and allows me to feel productive. It’s an untreasured art in these high speed times.
That’s why I’m pretty thrilled that I’ve accomplished a significant goal – to embroider a visual header for this site. It took less than a week to make, including some overly frustrating stitch-ripping when I altered the plan in the middle, but if you scroll to the top of this page, you’ll see it beaming there, in all of it’s titled glory.
How about you? Where’s your blogging adventure headed? And what are some signposts that you’ve established along the way?
