Back Up and Running
Whew! I finally got everything (well almost everything, my blog is highly disjointed at the moment) transferred over from my old site.
So why move everything you ask?
I finally came to grips with the fact that I am horrible at maintaining a website. I had one “fatal error” too many and cracked.
I realized I was spending more time of fixing my broken website than working on patterns or keeping up my blog and wasn’t happy about it.
So I broke up with my old host, and got with a new one.
Now I’m in love with my new error free site. I can focus on making tutorials and patterns and new books and new bog posts and…
So what’s next?
Well, since it’s getting warm and no one wants to crochet a heavy blanket, I’m moving on to smaller lighter projects that will be introduced soon. A new book will hopefully be released within the next couple of months and I have lots more free pattern workshops being made as I type.
I also will be bringing back my vintage awesomeness, all the old ones from the old site and lots of new ones I have yet to show you.
I’m going to begin a series on self publishing. All of the information I’ve learned through self publishing my patterns and books will be shared with anyone who is interested in doing the same. Though it will focus more on the photo-heavy pattern-centric type writing, a lot of the information will work for anyone wanted to learn how to self publish on the various platforms available (Amazon, Pubit, iBooks, etc…).
So there is a lot going on and to make sure you don’t miss out on any of it, following the blog is a great idea and also signing up for my newsletter wouldn’t hurt (both links are found at the bottom of the page). Why should you sign up for both? The blog follow will let you know when I post new topics so if you are interested in self publishing, or vintage awesomeness, you’ll get a heads up every time something new is added.
My newsletter is a whole different can of worms. This is sent out usually when I have a new pattern or workshop that is available and almost always includes a discount for those new things (as much as 50% off). These great discounts aren’t advertised through the blog, only those signed up for the newsletter get the coupon codes.
So as always, if you have any request for tutorials leave them below in the comments and I’m always happy to answer questions on anything crochet related whether it’s in regards to my patterns or just crochet knowledge in general. And speaking of my patterns, if you haven’t already, go check out my new super elegant shop. I’m loving the theme and if you’ve previously signed up for my newsletter, don’t fret, the discount code you had included in it will work in the new shop. Yes, that’s right, when you sign up for the newsletter, you get an automatic discount to use on your first shopping expedition. So what are you waiting for? Get down there and sign up!
