I’ve been thinking

This is a phrase my Husband usually dreads as it always seems to involve more work for him and I think he’s not wrong! With all my teaching, attending wool shows and working at Adelaide Walker it’s very hard sometimes to keep my blog up to date. It’s not that I don’t have anything to say, sometimes there’s a long list, it’s just that I don’t always have time to organise my thoughts, find and amend photos and have a chat with you lovely people.

So, I’m thinking that I’ll start to use my blog more like I use facebook, where it’s short and sweet. I could close the blog but not everyone is on facebook so I think I’ll keep this going and use it in a punchier format.

I’m also considering one or two visual changes to my site and I’d be very grateful for any suggestions you might have. What would you like to see more/less of? How can I improve it?

Workshops will also be changing in the Autumn when I introduce some short sessions alongside the ever popular day long workshops. What would you like me to teach?

You’re so generous with your time and thoughts that I know I’ll get some good suggestions.

  1. I know EXACTLY what you mean and as you know I have recently returned to a similar format, just a photo or two and brief bit of waffle.

    You could do the same and limit your content to just your work – ie a felted bag, listing interesting facts such as the content of the felt, what you did to prettify it and whether you sold it, will make it again – etc

    The blog that inspired me to go back to the simpler format is this one – http://vialiivia.blogspot.co.uk/2014/04/sano-minulle-kuinka-suhtaudut.html

    have a peak (if you have time!!) xx

  2. I think blogs transform over time…my posts are certainly very different from ones written three years ago…without intentionally changing them! It needs to be something that works for you…
    I enjoy your photos – of your work and your workshop students – they are great to prompt inspiration or just have a boost of colour or texture!
    I do know how long it takes to put together a post – short and sweet would be good for me….having said that – lots of bloggers I followed are now regular facebookers.
    I’m off to follow you there too!!
