July flew by! In case you missed any of this month’s posts, here’s the review. Just follow the links to the original posts.
Popular July Posts
I really believe that one of the best parts of both blogging and crochet is that each offers the opportunity to be part of a great community. It makes me happy to say that the two most popular posts on the blog this month were the two that were most about connecting to my community.
And second was the Introduce Yourself blog post where I asked my readers if they wanted to come share a little bit about themselves on the blog. I was so happy that people responded so well to this. I heard from people I know as well as people who had never commented before and it was a joy to learn more about everyone. If you didn’t comment, feel free to still do so!
