On the the prowl for a new sewing blog, I typed in the simplest keyword that came to mind, “best sewing blogs.” The top results were ladies who Google not only ranked high, but I did as well – Gertie, Karen, Tilly, and more. But this was not what I was looking for; what I was in search of was a round up of sewing blogs, preferably broken down by category (yeh, I’m picky and organized), that would give me new sewers I could stalk. I looked all over hell and searched the high heavens, but I couldn’t find it. So, I created one. In early January, I emailed every blogger on my blog roll – I’m not kidding when I say every blogger, which was more than one hundred – and asked them to submit their picks to the “best of” categories I created. I gave them a little more than a month to respond, and I got a lot of feedback. It actually turned out to be a great blog project as I discovered a ton of new blogs.
Instead of giving a brief description of each blog, I asked respondents to submit quotes telling me why they like the blogs they chose. This way, you’re getting a completely unbiased, and sometimes hilarious blurb about the winners.
The purpose of this post is two-part. In addition to the first, I also want this to be a resource for everyone, which is why I created a page and added a button to my sidebar so that this information will be easily accessible for the rest of the year. Also, at the bottom of the post is a button you can add to your sidebar so that your readers can easily access it as well.
Part one is up today, and part two will be up tomorrow.
P.S. If you click over to the page, you can share tomorrow’s winners. Shhh… don’t tell anyone!
