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.
