These quilters each have their own unique style. Each has a large following. And each of them has the tenacity required to keep on. Starting a blog is one thing, but keeping it going year after year takes hard work and dedication.
Is there a particular style or genre of artwork that inspires you? The Modern Minimalist Master. As an artist, Charley Harper was always way ahead of his time. If you look at his entire body of work chronologically, you will see how his style was developed. The element of minimalism, his use of simple shapes and minimal detail, is only one facet of the appeal his work has.
His use of unique viewpoints. Even his clever use of a play on words or rhyming words for naming his works is appealing. Where do you find ideas for your content? Most of my content is derived from new patterns that I have designed, and my ideas for those have many sources. Nature is my number one source for content. People writing to me with requests for a certain quilt design have resulted in Ay, Chihuahua!
Some of my ideas for designs have come from fabric that I liked. So some of my quilts start from choosing the backing first! Other ideas have come from using an element from an earlier design and reworking it in a new layout. For example, the Jungle Friends design contains a large number of jungle animals. Many of those animals, like the crocodiles and giraffes, were used alone in previous designs.
Or I may take one element of a previous design and make a new pattern that uses only that one animal. In the past I used to worry that someday I would run out of ideas, but with so many sources, I now realize that the possibilities are endless! My content is not limited solely to posting about my own new designs. Sharing helpful tutorials is a great idea for adding content to your blog that will attract new readers.
Participating in blog hops and quilt alongs hosted by other quilting bloggers is a fun way to connect with other bloggers and to provide blog content. We all love it. What is one thing you would change if you were starting over? The number one thing I would change if I was starting over is that I would have purchased my own domain - and kept it. It is not expensive. You never know where blogging will take you. I began my blog using the free blogspot platform offered by Google back in After getting to know a few other bloggers who use worpress, I felt like I might want to migrate my blog over to that platform instead.
So I purchased sewfreshquilts. The domain name that I purchased expired after one year and I did not renew it. And it was only this past few weeks that I did just that. In preparation for the next step in my journey, I wanted to create a new, clean site my new clean house to direct prospective clients to, but still have a link to my original blog my messy creative house. I wanted to have my domain name again.
They ask for a premium price. And I am not going to get into how much it would cost, but it all depends on if they are aware that you want it. You can go on an auction site and make a bid. Or you can buy it outright.
Bidding makes them aware that you want it and they are not obligated to sell it to you following your bid. I first considered just adding to or changing what I wanted for a domain name, as an alternate — thesewfreshquilts. So I paid up and am now the proud owner of MY domain again. I encourage you to come for at visit at my new clean house — sewfreshquilts.
