So I've finally given in to my daughter. She is right, Fugly is not a nice word (although it described my early crochet efforts perfectly!) After much wracking of my poor brain, I came up with .....The Crochet Stitch Witch. According to my advisor (daughter), this name suits me perfectly...hmmmm.
I had a good search round the world of the web and couldn't see that anyone else was using the name and the domain was available so there it is. Sincere apologies if I have poached someone's user name.
I've got loads of plans for the new site. It was great fun being able to share a pattern almost as soon as I'd concocted it as with the bobble sheep so I plan to make it a regular feature, just sharing whatever pops into my head. (Some of it could well be fugly!!)
I'm also in the process of creating an ebook which will be given free to all my email subscribers. So if you fancy getting your crochet fingers on a copy - just fill in the subscriber box on the new site you'll also be among the first to hear of new patterns and freebies.
The past week has been an extremely steep learning curve for me - finding out about web hosting (I've only ever used free blogs and things till now!) and I've been making things far more complicated (and expensive) than they needed to be. Getting to grips with wordpress blogging and the infinite possibilities and dusting off the photoshop skills to make banners and logos. It's all good fun but just makes me realise how little I know....to think I find google+ a challenge! Even idiot guides to things leave me scratching my head so I'm thinking I might include some 'how not to' do things type guides. Or the idiots guide to the idiots guide....
Anyway, check out my countdown page and fill in your email address (go on, you know you want to!)- pre-launch subscribers get to go on a super special list with an extra special freebie (that I've only just thought of)! That's another thing I'm learning all about - email subscriber lists with Mail Chimp. (Can you tell I'm trying to do this as cheaply as possible too!) Oh what fun we're going to have :)
Oh, I'm gonna get really, really brave and do some videos too!!
