Kicking off the 2013 Awesome Crochet Blogger Awards I’d like to give an award for the best guest posts featured on their crochet blog. The blog that curated and collected the best guest posts this year was Gwen Blakley Kinsler of Crochet Queen’s Royal Ramblings.
About this Awesome Crochet Blog Award
Guest posts add to a crochet blog by offering new points of view, additional information and creative ideas that the blogger alone might not come up with. Allowing guest blogs also shows a great community spirit. For those reasons, I think it’s worth a blog award, don’t you?
Why the Winning Blog Won
Crochet Queen featured a variety of really high-quality crochet blog guest posts this year. I really enjoyed reading them and was proud to be a guest poster there myself. Some of my other favorites were artist Bonnie Meltzer‘s post on Large Scale Crochet and Kristen Stoltzfus on Vintage Crochet Design.
This Blog Previously Won …
I love Gwen’s crochet blog and her crochet work in general so it’s no surprise that she has previously won one of my awesome crochet blog awards. She won the 2011 awesome crochet blogger award for best freeform crochet.
Also About This Great Crochet Blog
I also just wanted to give Gwen some extra kudos for “most improved” crochet blog this year. She really transformed the look of her blog this year and it’s really easy to navigate and enjoy. She’s also been posting a lot more recently, especially since finishing her big project self-publishing her awesome new book The Fine Art of Crochet. Great work Gwen!
Thanks to the Blogger
Although it didn’t affect my choice of who received the award I wanted to say thanks again to Gwen for her support of my crochet books and blog over the course of the past year. She’s reviewed/ mentioned both Crochet Saved My Life and When Grandma Isn’t Crocheting … and it’s greatly appreciated!
