For today’s 2013 Awesome Crochet Blogger Awards I’d like to give an award for the best links of the year. This crochet blog award goes to JD over at Craft Gossip’s Crochet Channel.

About this Awesome Crochet Blog Award

Crochet blogs that share links to other crochet information offer a lot to the crochet community. First of all, they help strengthen that community by connecting the sites to each other through linking. They also allow crochet lovers to find fresh, new information. Plus they help sort out the good from the bad in crochet blogging so that the best patterns, news sites and other crochet information can become readily available to all of us online.

Why the Winning Blog Won

JD at CraftGossip won this award because she posts nearly every day and almost always includes one or more links to another blog. She often does themes where she will share several links to related patterns, tips, books or information. For example she did a post recently on granny square edgings and shared links to examples on Happy in Red and Attic24. JD explains why she’s choosing the links that she does and supplements that information with her own thoughts and ideas about each topic.

This Blog Previously Won …

I regularly read and share stuff from CraftGossip, especially JD’s crochet blog on this site so it’s no surprise that she’s won an award from me before. CraftGossip won the 2011 Awesome Crochet Blog Award for Best Crochet News Source.

Also About This Great Crochet Blog

In addition to her great links, there are a lot of other things about this crochet blog. Some of those include:

  • frequency of posts; you can count on this blogger to show up every day!
  • shares via social media; I’ve noticed a lot of CraftGossip posts on Sulia especially
  • book reviews as well as other crochet product reviews; they’re to the point and very informative

Special Thanks to the Blogger

Although it didn’t affect my choice of the award in any way I want to say thanks again for JD over at CraftGossip for including Crochet Concupiscence in the sidebar of the blog as well as doing an article earlier this year about my Hook to Heal book and project.

This is Just Absolutely Fantastic! Jd has proven her worth! She hasn't been too long at crocheting like most people like to brag about, But she took to it like a duck to water better than the Old Timers! I follow her posts close to daily, and she can get me started, spending over an hour on her site! She's earned every Bit and Every right to this wonderful award of yours! God Bless your Heart, Jd! We will always love you! Sheri *¿*
