I know many of my readers and customers are users of ravelry, but a lot of you are occasional rather than frequent visitors to the ravelry site, and although I have a group over there called The Garden Shed, my blog stats tell me that I have significantly more blog visitors and subscribers than there are Shed members - about 270 people are Sheddites, but quite a few haven't logged into ravelry for several months. Blog readership is double this, every day.
Over the last month or so I have been trying to blog more often, I am wary of putting all my eggs in the ravelry basket, if you know what I mean. The blog gives me more freedom to add photos and links and to chatter away about this and that. For me it's important that non-ravellers don't feel like second-class citizens, so when I choose a new pattern to knit which I think you might like to hear about, I always try to make sure that it's available to everyone, and that it is not just a ravelry pattern.
Writing a blog is a strange activity. Those of you who have your own blogs will know what I mean. We burble away about what interests us, and if we are writing for other people and not just for ourselves, it can be quite hard to know if we are getting it right.
So this is your chance to have your say.
There are two widgets in the side-bar to your right (the link is there for those getting the blog in a feed-reader), one about ravelry and one about the blog content.
Not everyone will want to vote, and that's fine. It's anonymous so I won't know who is saying what.
If you have anything to add, please let me know in the comments at the end of this post, or by sending an email using the link on the left below the photo.
