Hello everyone – long time no post!
As I’m trying to kick start my blog again, I joined the WordPress Blogging 101 course. This post is my first assignment – a “who I am and why I’m here” kind of thing.
Since most of my readers and followers are already familiar with me and what I do, I figured this would be a good time to look back at what I’ve done and how far I’ve come with it.
I started this blog as a way to keep track of my cross stitch projects (and other things I make), rather than doing it in a physical format. Publishing posts online also enabled me to share things with the world at large, which is something that has given me confidence in my stitching endeavours. I have been fortunate enough to be able to inspire not only other stitchers but also people new to the craft.
Since this blog began way back in 2009, I’ve shared many work-in-progress pictures and photos of completed projects. I’ve redesigned the look of the pages several times (and I’m about to do it again.) I’ve gone through a lot in my personal life as well, and sometimes that’s reflected in my posting.
Part of the reason I signed up for Blogging 101 is that I’ve neglected my little place for so long now, and I really want to rediscover the love of posting and sharing that I had before.
So, if I’m successful with this course, I hope to be blogging more often this year – and that also means that I have to be stitching! (I already have some great projects in the works, so I could be off to a good start!)
I don’t know what else the course will involve, but I’m expecting a few more post-based assignments. Hopefully, it will all be good and I’ll be a proper blogger once again!
See you all soon!
