I think literally 3.6 seconds had past after I posted last weeks SBQ and this week’s appeared in my inbox. Nice.
And so, this week’s question is suggested by Heather and is:
How do you decide which stitching blogs are worth repeat and/or regular viewings? Are there certain things you look for in particular? Are there things you wish there were more of? Less of? Is your blog a good example of what you like to read?
I have recently been looking at my blogroll and thinking the same thing. I think it is time to cut it down, but what kind of criteria should I use to edit it?
I have made a lot of friends through blogging, and my “closest” (I know – it sounds funny – most I have never met in real life) friends are the ones I go and read first. I also enjoy seeing progress pictures, especially of the ones that are similar to my taste. I enjoy reading about things going on in stitcher’s lives. Now I don’t really do this – I am up in the air about doing so – while I enjoy reading about daily events of my friends, I don’t particularily think anyone will find my stuff interesting so I don’t post it. Of course, we will never know how exciting housework and answering phones is until I post about it, huh?
My plan is over the next little while to whittle down my blog roll. There are a few in the list that I skim, and some that haven’t even posted in a year. Hopefully I will get it down to a more manageable number that way.
On to life events! Good Friday is always spent in our house colouring eggs. I boil up a dozen eggs and the girls colour them using their markers and crayons (they are a tad too young for the dyes, I think), then we store them in the refridgerator so the Easter Bunny knows where to find them to hide them for Sunday morning. The girls on Easter Sunday do an egg hunt, find the other goodies the bunny has left as well and the eggs go with our breakfast on Sunday morning.
And so, voila – this years eggs:
Have a great holiday, everyone, regardless of how you celebrate it. I hope the joys of spring put a hop in your step!
