SBQ – December 14, 2005

  • Posted on December 14, 2005 at 1:17 pm

Today’s SBQ isn’t about stitching: It is about blogging and was suggested by AngelSan.

Take a minute to reflect on your blog reading habits and preferences. What do you prefer to read in stitching blogs? (Progress, tips, family life, experiences, etc.) How much do you think you are influenced by other stitching bloggers?

I guess I prefer stitching blogs that are mainly about stitching, but I don’t mind personal stuff thrown in. I enjoy getting to know the person, not just their stitching. I’d be a hypocrite if I only wanted to read about stitching all of the time, since my own blog is normally quite a mix of stitching, personal, quiz or meme and humorous posts. I try to keep it light and amusing, though, whenever possible. I want my readers to be entertained. Not sure if I achieve that or not, but it’s my goal! 😉

As far as how much I am influenced by other stitching bloggers, I would say a good bit. Fortunately, my tastes tend to be different, so I don’t have the constant temptation to buy new designs; however, I try to absorb finishing concepts like a sponge. I’m also motivated by other people’s progress and happy dances. It continually renews my passion around stitching and makes me itch to stitch, even if I don’t have the time to. I think it keeps the interest and spark alive in me, which is very important.

And other than that, I have met and made some very wonderful friends in the stitching blogosphere and that’s worth more than anything! Hugs to all of my stitching buddies!
