A Question for my Readers

You may have noticed the complete lack of regular posts lately. For that, I apologise. I was doing so well at getting everything done on time but I have a problem.

I have blog-block.

Not writer’s block, because I am still writing. It’s just here. I am only knitting one thing and it is a) not photogenic yet, and b) for someone and therefore private until they see it.

So I have a question for all of you to help me get inspired again with All The Posts. Help me, readers, you’re my overused Star Wars quote.

What do you like to read most here? What should I write about more (or less)?

Thank you for anyone who takes time to share any thoughts or ideas.

  1. I tend to like retrospective posts. Past projects with fun (or funny!) stories attached. Also, what it was like when you first started. Also, tips and tricks for all levels, those are nice.

    1. That’s a really good idea. You know what? I don’t go back and look at my old posts enough. I see a project for the weekend. Thank you for the inspiration. πŸ™‚

  2. To answer your question . . . I don’t think your blog has to be totally knitting focused all the time. An insight to your life (with reason, some things need to stay private) like observations you make on interesting things that happen around you (like when you posted the pictures from your window). You might also get some input from your readers about their knitting activities, perhaps projects they completed that had a special technique or stitch, an easy pattern that looks complicated, etc. You could call it a Reader Feature and use that to fill in when you don’t have anything particular of your own, Of course they have to include a picture or two and a reference to the pattern and designer they used.

    1. That’s really good to hear, actually. I don’t talk much about my life because I assume it’s not really worth being on the blog, but knitters are people and my knitting has context in my life. I should speak more about that. Thank you.

      I also like the idea of being more interactive with a reader feature. Awesome ideas. Thank you so much for taking the time to answer this, you are the best.

  4. I stumbled on this blog whilst looking for sci-fi patterns and I thoroughly enjoy it. I don’t get a lot of time to knit and now my kids know I can I have a pile of projects they keep adding to. Your blog has opened up a whole new world for me. I’ve also really enjoyed the book reviews that you posted. I know more of the same isn’t much inspiration but yes please πŸ™‚

  5. I Agree, Your blog dosn’t have to be soley focused on knitting all the time. It is your blog afterall, you may even find that introducing a new feature of sorts opens up a whole new avenue in your blog πŸ™‚ When I was feeling Bloggers-Block, I started up a Book club with another blogger who was a good friend of mine. It is great fun. there are so many options you could look into, maybe even invite other creative sewing/knitting/crafting blogs together for a joint project.

  6. I agree a reader feature sounds interesting. Maybe you could do a post on your hometown or places you like to visit and take us on a tour? Also, I really liked the inspiring posts you wrote about the dorset buttons, showing us how they were made, and the amazing artwork you shared by Agnes Herczeg. It’s always interesting to learn about other crafts.

    1. I like the reader feature idea, definitely. As for pictures of my hometown – I just went back to the place where I grew up and have lots of pictures, so that will be making an appearance. My current hometown is lovely but slightly less picturesque. I will find the pretty parts of it.

      Thank you so much for commenting. ❀

  7. I’ve liked when you’ve posted pattern round-ups. They are a fun way to see patterns, all within a theme, but it helps to see what else is out there and get inspired.

    But then I’m also biased and enjoy all you put forth! Good luck breaking the bloggers block

    1. Pattern round-ups are super fun to do, too, so I’m glad you like them. I’m going to do a bunch over the weekend to queue up for a few weeks, since they’re kind of time-intensive and that’s why I do them in chunks.

      Thank you my dear, I’m working on it! πŸ™‚
