This week I want to ask you what kinds of posts make a good sewing blog. There’s a good reason for this: I am on the verge of an adventure. A huge one. Involving many thousands of miles (and probably as many boxes).
You see, I don’t usually write much about life away from the sewing machine, but since I am about to be separated from my beloved Janome for a while until our possessions catch up with us I need to think about whether to continue with the blog. I have loved sharing my finished garments and connecting with all of you lovely folk, so it would be a great shame to shut up shop. I am also inappropriately proud of my little corner of t’internet. In around eight months I’ve amassed 230+ regular subscribers, and have had over 21,000 hits. I like to think that I’ve made some good buddies too, even if we’ve never met IRL (in real life!). So my awkward camera moments in front of the fireplace have not gone unnoticed. But i also have to be realistic about this impending sewing sabbatical.
So my big questions are these: do I say a simultaneous goodbye to South London and the blog? Or carry on with it but accept that there won’t be any posts for quite a while? Are you in it for the long haul? Do you read blogs to look at finished projects, or are you interested in more varied posts? Would you like to hear about the fabulous textiles I hope to be buying around the world, even if I’m not stitching for a while?
Please drop me a line and let me know what you think. I’m all ears.
