Today is the last day of NaBloPoMo. A post every day for the whole entire month and though I was worried at first I have been successful! The reason I decided to take part is because I wanted to jump start my blogging. The last few years my blog posts were hit and miss and I was unhappy with that and so I figured a project like this might help. Well, I’ve made it to November 30 with a post every day and I’ve got a plan for going forward and I want to share that plan with you. It’ll keep me on track I think.
The New Blog Plan
So I’m going form blogging 7 days per week to 3 days per week. Mondays will usually be a spinning focus post. Wednesdays will focus on Weaving. Fridays I will continue the Look Back posts. these are just general guidelines but I did find this month that this way of planning ahead with topics helped immensely. Of course if something exciting comes up I reserve the right to go off track slightly on any of the three days.
So that’s the new plan for the blog and it begins tomorrow, December 1…which is a Friday so you know what that means!
The New Website
Maybe you noticed something is different around here. Well, yes! for the last month my friend Kat and her talented man have been building a new site behind the scenes and they hooked it all up yesterday afternoon. As with any change there will be a few hiccups that will be fixed up over the next few days. Let me just say that I am thrilled with the work that has been done. I think it’s beautiful, easy to use and has a bit more information. There will also be a webstore up and running in the next little while where I will be carrying Schacht products and other things like kits for upcoming spin and /or weave alongs and some other secret stuff that is still in the planning stages.
Please be patient if a link or a clicky thing doesn’t work but please don’t hesitate to let me know so we can fix any issues ASAP.
So this morning the first newsletter went out to the people who have signed up to be part of the Spin and Weave Along that begins on January 1. It’s not too late to get on board with that, by the way. Here’s the link to the sign up form. Tomorrow my first newsletter to everyone else will be in your inbox. Not signed up for that newsletter? Well, I’ve got a link for that one too!
The upcoming newsletters will contain information that not everyone will get, some hints and tips and some deals and specials meant only for newsletter subscribers.
Don’t worry. I’m not going to fill your inbox. The newsletters will be regular but not so much that you get sick of seeing me.
There are a ton of things coming up and I keep wondering how we will even get all of the stuff done that we are planning. I’m hoping you’ll want to come along for the very fun and instructive ride.
