Thank you for all your comments, suggestions and compliments. Blogs are taking a backseat to quick and snappy social media outlets like Twitter, Instagram and of course, Facebook. It’s easy to see why. Blogs take more time, more energy and a lot more thought to maintain. But it’s precisely those things that make a blog, and blogging, valuable to me. It’s much more satisfying to have a lengthy conversation which is what blogging really is–as opposed to a quick shout out and a wave, which is what you get from Twitter, Instagram, et al.
Those avenues can have value. I’m not opposed to them. I’ve just realized that this is where I’m happiest. Blogging is more meaningful for me and so it is especially gratifying to know that it’s also meaningful for you. That you’re finding things here that inspire you and make you wonder and think. Thank you for being part of the conversation!
A few of you mentioned a desire to see garments. Some of you would like more How To’s and skill building posts. And of course, continuing posts of Stinka seem to be a priority for most. Fortunately, all of those things are on my radar for the coming year. It’s going to be another fun filled, colorful year for the blog, I assure you.
