Thoughts Please

I have been debating about the direction of this blog for awhile.  I admit that it needs a face lift, and I am hoping to do that soon.  I love having a space to post all of the things about crochet that I want.  I love to share my new projects, patterns I have found, or even throw around some ideas.

I have gone back and forth with offering ad space and making this blog more than what it is on that front.  Part of that scares me, because I really like the laid-back feel I have going on here.  I don't want to force my blogging because I have sponsors, but it would be a nice little added bonus as well, and may make me not neglect this place sometimes.

So, I need some of your help.  What would you like to see here?  I would LOVE to get some more free patterns up, and I would really love to finish some of my patterns for my shop here soon.  I have had some in the works for months!  Would you like more links to patterns I have found?  More advice on how to crochet?  My thoughts on yarn?  More about my personal life?  Would you be interested in purchasing ad space?  More projects to give back?  Linky parties to share projects?  You tell me :-)

I am not a writer.  I am a crocheter who LOVES to share with others, and I am thankful that so many of you want to follow along and see what I have to say!  Please lend your thoughts and help me form some sort of focus and direction!  We all know I need it! :-)

Pin It!


  1. I think periodic product reviews would be awesome, it took me a while to find a few diff. types of stitch markers that I like, crochet hooks that I prefer. I personally would like to see everything from travel/carry cases to hooks to measuring tapes - if you can use it for crochet... I want to know about it.

  2. I agree with the above poster.
    I would love to see free patterns, and links to patterns.
    I am always interested in new and different yarns (and who to buy them from.
    I absolutley love doing group projects to give back. I have participated in many preemie and cancer cap crochet groups.

  3. I would also love product reviews of ANYthing crochet and yarn related :) and all of the above things you mentioned- free/inexpensive patterns, "new" stitches to try, crochet/yarn storage advice, crochet along projects that we can share, color/style trends.... AND family stuff that you feel comfortable sharing :) A lot of us are silly moms with crazy kids and enjoy that common thread of crochet mixed in (pun intended!) Thanks Betsy, you're awesome!

  4. P.S. I don't mind ads, especially for crafty things! It can be a great way to link up with others

  5. Personally, I like your blog just the way it is :) I really enjoy your patterns and advice. I'm just now "really" getting into crocheting (I've only known how for .. oh..say...20 years ;) I personally don't care for all the ads on a lot of the blogs I follow.... too much going on. It makes me feel like someone's always trying to pressure me to get money.. That's just "my" opinion, but I still follow lots of blogs that have the whole side filled up with ads and will still follow yours if you choose to :)

  6. Sorry, just thought of something.. could you make a page tab at the top for your free patterns? That would make them easier to get to :)

  7. Free
    patterns, yarn recommendations or suggestions and definitely charitable projects!
