I know that many of you follow my blog through my blog posts being delivered to your email. Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to keep up with blog posts the way that I would want. This has been going on for months and I don’t think it will be changing anytime very soon. Being a one-woman show, I have to make some sacrifices somewhere. This means that, if you are only following my blog posts, you are missing out on a lot. I try, but I can see that I’m failing. Constantly working on new patterns, for instance, takes so much time that I haven’t had a spare moment to announce them on my blog.
Right now, I’ve got even more on my plate. For the last three weeks, I’ve been putting a lot of focus on MakeItCrochet.com. This is my free-pattern-a-day website. Every single day, I feature a different free crochet pattern. I’ve had wonderful feedback from people about the site.
I’ve been trying to make MakeItCrochet more personal, sharing not only information on the free pattern but also information on the designer, the designer’s other work and recently, I’ve started providing information on skill levels, yarn and even a video to help with the stitches, if I can. It’s been a lot of work setting this up. I even started an email newsletter service for the first time in all my 17 years of owning a website so that people can get all information in their email box as well.
The weekly newsletter is going to be unique because it will include information about MakeItCrochet.com and ALSO about the new free crochet patterns at CrochetKim.com. I will even be posting about any new blog posts from here as well as information on crochet-alongs I’m hosting and anything else I can think to include. Sounds good, doesn’t it? Everything in one convenient email. It’s the ultimate source for everything.
If you are receiving this blog post in your email, you are already signed up for my blog posts, but, if you want the entire ball of wax, you’ll want to also (or alternatively) sign up for my “big girl” newsletter. Simply visit either of these sites and click on the Newsletter link to sign up. There are hundreds of you who have signed up for my blog posts, but I feel badly that I can’t keep up with it right now. I am hopeful that you will consider signing up for the regular newsletter so that, at least, you will start getting some content from me because, after all, that’s why you signed up originally.
I hope to get back on schedule with new free patterns on my website every week and I don’t want anyone to miss them, especially with the holiday season right around the corner. My primary focus right now is providing free patterns on my website. Now that I’ve got MakeItCrochet running smoothly, I’ll be able to get back on track. As time goes on, I am trying only to add new things to my schedule a little bit at a time. I’ve burned out before when I took on too much and I don’t want that to happen again.
I hope you will enjoy all the new things happening with my websites and that you’ll bear with me during this transition.
All my best,
