A new project, a new blog ?
The back-to-school frenzy period is now behind and I can find time for quilting and stitching again. The first thing I did was to clean up my sewing room because it motivates me to surround myself with a peaceful atmosphere with all my cherished tools around me. It doesn't stay so tidy for long! When it's messy again, I just look at the photos.... trust me, it works ;-)
My blog is slowly coming to an end by lack of motivation. I have spent some time thinking about it and though I know that blogs are not a favorite media anymore and many people have moved to Instagram, I truly believe that blogging is a very different experience. It creates a very different type of relationship with your readers while being a self-development tool in many aspects. I still love my blog and when I see all the past posts, the photos, it does make me happy. It is a bit like a quilting life journal. So I do not want to let it die. But I need a new blog project, with new ideas and new goals.
That's why, I am thinking of giving my blog a fresh new start in a very near future. Maybe I will open a new blog on a different platform or change this one so it looks different. This new blog or new blog version will be about my passion for threads. Shall I also post about lifestyle, travel and food or not? I would love your input about what you would like to find and what is important for you : text, photography? Would you like to see finished projects, projects in the making, step-by-step tutorials, discovering tools, books, artists, exhibitions? Do not hesitate to write in the comment section what you like in a blog, what you like reading, what you are looking for in a blog you follow.
Some people have asked me to write my blog in French rather than English. Would you prefer to have it in French, in both languages?
Posting everyday is just impossible for me as I work full time as a high school teacher. Posting once a month may not be enough. Would you prefer one post a week, one post every other week?
What about the name? Do you think I should change it? Any ideas?
Let me know what you think, I will note down and review all your ideas, opinions, comments in October and November and work on the new blog meanwhile.
I thank you all in advance for your comments ;-)
Wishing you a lovely fall season if you're in the northern hemisphere and a lovely spring for those down under :-)
