Good Morning, Quilters!
Just a few days ago, The Inbox Jaunt celebrated its fourth birthday -with a total of nearly 5,000,000 views in four years! Birthdays (as we get older) are a time for introspection. So I had to ask myself several questions…I will share some of those questions in the coming weeks-as I really need YOUR input. The first question….
Why do I blog?
First, why did I start blogging? I never wanted a blog. I was taking an online photography class from Kim Klassen and the next class in her series was a blogging class. I wasn’t interested in blogging, but there were several photography techniques in the class that I wanted to learn so I signed up. After a few weeks, I thought blogging would be a great way to share my photography and quilting with my family and a few friends…
Little did I know that blogging would change my life…
Early on, I offered a few tutorials-mostly for my sisters in Chicago to see–and the tutorials went viral. Pinterest was the key…
Now that I’ve been blogging for four years, the reason I blog…I found I love teaching--it’s a way to share my passion. A way to stand on the table and shout:
“YOU can do this!”
“Machine Quilting is Fun!”
“Machine Quilting is not scary!”
“Machine Quilting adds personality to your quilts!”
When I started machine quilting- in the pre-internet days…
It was hard to find resources.
It was expensive to take classes.
It was difficult to find a babysitter for my six children so I could go to classes.
THE NUMBER ONE REASON I BLOG
That’s why I blog…
So the older-me can give back to the young-mother-me who so wanted more quilty information.
I want YOU to have what YOU need to enjoy quilting as much as I have!
