Blog Carnival: New Year's Blogolution

What do I have planned for my blog? Well, by putting a list out there I'm committing myself, which is a good thing in my opinion. So, here goes:
1.) Keep up the bloggin': Sounds easy enough, but goal #1 is just to keep the blog going. We'll have a new baby in the house in a few weeks, so blogging won't be at the top of my list for a while.
2.) Add a list of my favorite blogs: I've compiled a pretty awesome list of favorite blogs by designers and crafty people that I would love to share, I just never seem to get around to it. I'm gonna do it within the next 2 months.
3.) Have some giveaways: I think this is a really great way to show appreciation to your readers and to get traffic to your blog and/or etsy page, so I'm going to give this a try. Not sure what the giveaways will be...maybe something handmade, maybe some fat quarters for my fellow quilters out there, maybe a % off my etsy store items. Don't know, but keep an eye out.

So, those are three main things. I don't want to be self-defeating by trying to list too much. There are lots of other things that I want to accomplish on my etsy page and on my flickr page, so gotta leave room for that.

Thanks for reading and hope you will add me to your list of blogs you watch!


  1. I think it's a great idea to list just a few goals.
    I always get overwhelmed when I think about all of the things I need and want to do. And then I don't do any of them.

  2. Love your list...I need to start compiling one myself.

    Thanks for sharing.

  3. More giveaways were on my list as well! They really do bring people out of the woodwork.

  4. Great goals. Love #1! I always try to keep up with my goal. That's one of my resolutions this year so I hope I can keep to it. Giveaways are said to help traffic to your blog and shop so good luck with all of your 2009 goals!

  5. congrats. on the addition to your family. I agree, once you put something out there, at least you can find what to do on those lonely nights! LOL

  6. A new baby in the house will give you lots to blog about. Congratulations!
