Creative Friday – Over at Natural Suburbia Linda has set up a linky for all of us to share our posts about any kind of creative goodness! There are lots of participants and since I recognize many of the names of people who posted this week I’m betting that there’s lots of visiting and sharing going on. Leaving (and getting) comments is a great way to build your network. Plus it just feels good doesn’t it??! I’m looking forward to making new friends and learning lots of interesting things!
The Universal Craft Blog Directory – Back in October of 2011 Craftyrie started this linky and it appears to have grown by leaps and bounds! Tremendously simple to sign up for, it randomly shows all members in one ever morphing list. I clicked about and found some interesting places, so I went ahead an added my name.
Crochet Blogs by Ringsurf – Now this one I’m not so sure about. Initially I was lead to a list of over 400 crochet blogs and it was easy enough to click to check them out. Signing up was challenging. It seems like I had to enter my name and password multiple times before I was able to add my blog, and then I had to write a rather lengthy description of my site. Maybe I was just tired, but it seemed cumbersome. I added the badge to my blog and when I tested it I was disappointed to find that several of the sites it brought me to were quite old (one was 2008!). I’ll give it some time, but if it seems that this is the norm than I’ll probably remove it. I don’t want to promote something that’s hard to use and has “stale” information.
And finally there’s The Blog Guidebook – This site appears to have a bounty of bloggy goodness along with a place to share your link. I haven’t listed my blog yet because I need to create my badge. I want it to be special (since it represents me!) and well honestly I have no idea how to build one! Like so many things on my blogging adventure I’ll figure it out, just not today! My brief tour through this site proved quite informational and I’m looking forward to spending more time learning ways to improve our blogging experience! Plus I love the way this site looks!
There you have it friends. I’d love to hear your experience with any of these sites or recommendations for others that you enjoy.
Until next time,
Be blessed and stitch & read with love!
