I've reached 100 followers on my blog!!!!!
I can't believe it. Thank you all of you who are interested in what I have to say, the things I do and what I like. When I started this blog almost a year ago it was from a suggestion by my husband, as a way of showing my jewellery to people who might be interested (and in the end it would hopefully help generating more business, he IS clever isn't he).
The plan/idea behind it has always been very simple:
It is a blog about my jewellery and beading. I show things I have made, things I am working on, ideas and things that inspire me. More imagery than writing. Short texts. Rather frequent updates, at least once a week, but preferably three to four times a week.
I am most often sponanteous about my posts. Don't plan them ahead and my writing style is direct (and therefor sometimes you see bad grammatics or miss-spelling, but I have decided to not worry too much about that).
I want this to be a place like one I would like to visit myself. A fresh mix of this and that, high and low, personal but not private, generous with links and tips (when I have any ...). Visually attractive. I go to other blogs and see wonderful layouts and usage of exciting templates, look at for instance Songbeads or FancifulDevices, and I sometimes think I want to do something similar, coz it makes me happy. But then I realize it just isn't me really. I am after all an Industrial Designer deep down. It became very obvious to me recently when I did the pictures for ABS January challenge, where I added text on the sides, mainly in order to make the actual image square coz it shows up a lot nicer in the post then. In my eyes it looks so typical "industrial design" with a bit of informative text added. And yes, I do like it. It improves my experience when I see things like that.
I don't know though if my jewellery style is clean and informative. I don't think so. I don't even know if I have a style as such. Would be nice to hear what you think. And I would also like to hear which kind of posts you like most, and if there is anything you would like to see more of or less of. Shower me in feedback!!!!!!
It might pay back even. By leaving a feedback comment you will enter my Celebration Give-away for 100 followers. I will put together 100 beads from my own stash. Give me a couple of days to get back and show you a photo of them. And I will use a random number generator to draw the winner. Let's say on Wednesday next week. Please leave a comment even if you happen to not be interested in winning the beads, (I know I have some none-beader followers out there). It means so much to get feedback!
All my best,
I have marked in green the text which is about what you need to do to enter the give-away.
