A few things to consider if you are just beginning your blogging journey...
Blogging can be fun and informative for both you and your readers...sharing what you know is a wonderful way to help fellow knitters/crocheters and crafters of all kinds.
I am always drawn to the fun sites that have a bit of sarcasm or sense of humor and fabulous graphics! Keepin' it real AND short also helps me because, like most of us, I'm definitely in a time crunch most of the time.
What do you look for in a blog site? Maybe take the qualities you like in a blog you read and add your own personal flare. Your blog will soon take on a life of it's own.
With the spring season comes a little sprucing up of your stash, your knitting patterns & books - why not your blog? Could it be you have something spectacular to add to the scene and didn't realize it because of your busy lifestyle?
Blogging often is also helpful if you want folks to come back and visit...even if you are sharing a video, blurb about something new you're excited about...a reader depends on you being there, and keeps the blog fresh in their minds. I always take note of the last time someone was online to blog or update.
Twitter has been helpful to me for updates throughout the day about what I am doing regarding blogs, Knit 1 for the Road, and cool stuff I stumble across. I'm not a texter, but you can also attach Twitter to your phone as well as your blog.
