About Me

My photo
I am 45. I am married to the love of my life. Together we have two beautiful young adults who bring me joy everyday. In 2015 we added another beautiful young adult to our house, our niece, and she has been a great joy! Secretly, I'm counting the years till grandbabies start coming; they just need to find their forever loves first.

Thoughts on a Website

Ok, all you crazy people. I am hamming around the idea of starting an actual website that would incorporate all of my free patterns in a more usable format, as well as, have my blog, etc all in one easy spot. 

Thoughts? Comments? 

I never seem to get much for feedback or comments, so this should be interesting......

I feel like you... sometimes I get so few comments it makes me wonder if anybody is reading my blogs! Anyway, your blog is so well laid out and organized that your patterns are easy to find. So if it is going to cost you money to have an actual website I say don't waste your money! But if not, go for it!

I love your patterns and will keep following you where ever you head. I guess the question is what you want to do with it and how comfortable you are with doing it. A website opens options, but it also has more challenges. If you have the means to meet those challenges it might give you more options, especially if you want to design more for sale items.

One thing I would do to encourage comments is to remove the robot identity for comments and just leave all comments as moderated. It makes it easier for people to comment and you can still delete the spam. I find it discourages commenting when people have to figure out the barely legible codes just to say hi.

Why not? It might be a good idea, especially as far as your patterns are concerned. If you put them on a website in PDF format, the patterns would be easy to download. Personally, I would rather download a PDF than have to copy and paste pattern directions from a blog. I did notice that some of your patterns are available as a download through Ravelry, which is great.

I think it might all boil down to which is easier for you to maintain.

Go for it! If it gets to be too much with everything else in your life, you can go back to doing it the way you have been.
You never know until you try something just how it will work. I, too, will follow you where ever you may go. (Sounds like a song from an era gone by. LOL!)
