A Surprising New Direction
I am sew excited to announce that I have begun a second blog! Yes, one just wasn’t enough so I decided that I needed another one to sastify my bloggy craving. Haha. No, I just wanted to have a blog that is a little more focused on the tutorial aspect of quilting and sewing. I am not an expert, but I feel that my intermediate abilities are a plus. Often times I will read a pattern and be overwhelmed simply because it’s obvious that the person who wrote the directions was experienced and didn’t remember to include the “obvious stuff” that might not be apparent to new quilters/sewers. That, combined with my teaching background and my new Masters Degree in Instructional Technology, made me want to combine all this knowledge and try to write some tutorials, or just find links to good tutorials out on the web. I am still going to write A LOT on this blog since it is more of a personal blog and I have met so many new friends through it. But I feel a need to respond to people who may need some guidance about quilting and to share my own experiences along the way. One of the great features of a WordPress blog is the search tracker that allows me to see what people searched for that led them to my blog. Sometimes I see that people searched for some really random things and found my blog, but probably didn’t get their question answered. I hope to be able to use the search information to guide my tutorials to what people are searching for. I am not sure if that will work, but I will try it for a little while. OK, so you are probably wondering what the address is for my new blog! Let me warn you, it’s brand new and I have only posted a welcome message. The blog is called Merrily We Sew Along. I also have a link to it over in my blogroll sidebar. I hope you’ll visit me over there as well as continue to visit me here and if you want to learn something or have a question. Please post it and we’ll go from there! Until next time.
Happy Stitches to You,
