Follow-Up: I Love Blogs That

I’m still digging through all the great recommendations in comments from my last post! It’s fun to see what you’re interested in, and how these blogs are quite like some of my favorites. After all, they

* tell stories
* tell about process, if the blog is about making
* use words thoughtfully
* inspire the reader
* show the writer cares about the reader.

Also, several of you commented about preferring blogs that don’t emphasize sales, and those that are (at least mostly!) grammatically correct. I AGREE with both of these points!! It is hard to read posts that haven’t been edited. And while I cheer for those who can make a living with their quilting and writing, their blog pages are often messy with advertising and affiliate links, or their posts are too centered on advertising and products.

I’m on the road AGAIN, so will leave it here for now. Thanks again for all the great ideas. Feel free to leave more, here or on the prior post.

    I thought for a little while of doing the affiliate link thing to help cover the annual fee I pay for my blog (to have a custom name and more photo storage, etc), but I do not want the clutter at this time.

      Hi Tierney. When I first started this blog, a friend recommended I use the Amazon affiliate arrangement to create some cashflow. It was tempting. However, I didn’t want to feel like I was recommending any products in order to generate money for myself. I haven’t completely discounted the notion, but it’s not something I’m interested in at this point. Thanks for the comment.
