Time for a Change
Hello fellow crafters and cardmakers! I have decided to change the way I will be blogging my cards and other projects.
From now on, I will post pictures of my projects and give very few, if any details on how I made them. Instead, I will be providing information sheets to any of my followers who want them. These will be downloadable PDFs.
Why, you ask? For three reasons:
- I want to have more personal connection to my followers, fans and other interested people.
- I want to provide value to followers.
- Lastly, it takes a lot of time writing and designing blog posts. I am a stickler for detail and I would rather spend that energy preparing PDF downloads for those who really want the information.
I have been blogging since 2009, and it's a tough way to interact with visitors. And I wonder if people really care to know the details. Judging by the very few comments I receive, I would say no. Maybe it's overkill for me to painstakingly make note of all the measurements, cartridges used and descriptions of how I put things together.
What Will Change
So here's how I will save time... mine and yours, as the reader. For the time being, I will continue posting my cards and other projects. I also have all my cards on my Pinterest boards for Grace Notes for Today, and It's All About Christmas. In addition, I have a Facebook page where I post all cards and card-like projects from both blogs. Add to that my Twitter page, which, admittedly, is not always up-to-date. See below for links to my social media pages.
Perks for Followers
Anyone who wants details on my cards and projects will need to become a follower. Click the blue button in the right sidebar and fill in your information. Then, leave me a comment under the latest post. You will also need to give me your email address so I can send you the PDF. Be sure to specify which card/project instructions you want.
If you do not want others to see your email address, in the comment section ask me not to publish your comment. And of course, I am always happy to receive comments about anything you like on my blogs, whether or not you want a PDF.
I'm going to try this strategy for awhile and see if it makes a difference in visitor satisfaction and an overall happy experience.
