I've noticed a trend lately of a downward slide in readership and response to blogging. This has been noted in the news as well. I know in the small field of rug hooking there seem to be hundreds of them to read and our readership base is not that large.
I'd rather you were sitting at your frame or dyeing in your pots than spending time checking to see what drivel I've scribbled for you.
I'm going to start posting once a week. That's all. The post will be a bit longer.
I'll cover three topics.
Rugging and Spinning- what's up on the Welcome Mat, what I'm making, what others are making, hints or tips, class announcements.
Dyeing Wool- did you know I'm writing a weekly dye column on the Mat now, several recipes every week, sometimes I'll post one here or a video or show you what I dyed
Homefront and Inspiration - that'll include important updates about me and Paula Deen, my boyfriend, cooking, cats and what I'm making, what inspires me and such.
The one exception to this is my Make Something Everyday tradition in December. I'll post every day then.
Meanwhile you can see me daily do things like the exciting" let's look at this", give you different ways to look at and do what you love, editorialize, ask questions and answer yours, teach, give you patterns, challenges and show you incredible artists right here:

You see my boards if what interests me interests you here:
I'm tweeting some faith formulas each week right here ( you got to have faith in me because there are no pictures)
And of course there is always the ubiquitous facebook, I'd love to be your friend there or anywhere really and you will get notices of my tweets and blog post. I rarely post anything else there and NEVER playWords with Friends or Bubble Witch Saga. You will be safe from even more drivel.
Speaking of drivel, here is one last shot for you, just to let you down easy.
One the Mat I asked people to send in what they believed, in the style of the radio show , This I Believe, last week end and really it was something what people wrote. Not at liberty to quote these amazing beings you will have to be satisfied to read what I said.
