A couple of weeks ago Aberrant Crochet did a lovely blog post with a shout out for several crochet blogs, including mine. She had some really generous things to say, including comparing me to Crochet Liberation Front, which was a really special mention for me.
Aberrant Crochet on Crochet Concupiscence
From the post:
“Kathryn writes extensively about the latest happenings in crochet. So if you consider yourself a serious fan of crochet and you’re not yet on her subscribers list, or following her on Twitter, well then you should be. She will get you in touch with more crocheters and crochet related news than any other one stop shop outside The Crochet Liberation Front. And y’all know my love for the CLF, so check Kathryn’s blog out!”
The Honor of Being Compared to CLF
I’m touched, not just because Aberrant Crochet compared me to someone she loves but because that’s a blog that I really love as well. When I first started blogging about crochet, less than two years ago, there were a handful of sites that I held up as models. I didn’t want to be like them, I just felt inspired by them, and CLF was definitely one of those blogs.
Crochet Liberation Front is a blog that celebrates crochet and celebrates the crochet community. While my content is different from what Laurie shares, I have always wanted to be a blog that also gets known for playing a small role in helping to strengthen the crochet community by sharing and supporting the amazing work that other crocheters are doing.
Here are some of the other things that I like about Laurie’s blog:
- She’s not afraid to shy away from tough topics.
- She’s also not afraid to be silly sometimes.
- She uses her own skills to provide information that helps her readers.
- She generally keeps a positive attitude that is all about the good ways we can help each other out this community.
- Laurie truly is a fearless leader!
