First Steps in Blogging…

I’m not – yet – a virtuoso embroiderer in the sense of one who is trained and extremely skilled. I learnt almost entirely from books, and a couple of courses that I may talk about in another post, and I started more or less by accident when looking for a hobby to take my mind off exams.

There’s another sense in which I hope I am a virtuoso. I embroider for fun, with enthusiasm and as much skill as I have managed to acquire over the years. I hope at least some of what I talk about will have a sense of fun in it.

I only started following blogs a few months ago, and I’ve found many which are encouraging, inspirational, and mind-blowing by turns. I’ll be talking about those, too, once I get to grips with WordPress!

    Good Luck! Apparently 90% of blogs fall into disuse, but I look
    forward to your musings …

    A good start – you’ve set out your markers!

    Thanks for your good wishes – I shall try to be interesting and entertaining!

    Welcome to blogging, Rachel – and welcome to WordPress too! Give me a shout if you want to know how to set up your sidebar or anything like that.

    Thanks for the welcome, Janice.
    At the moment my problem is working out how to comment on one or two blogs that I know accept comments but for some reason when I visit them the “Comment” box doesn’t display…

    Well, I’ve really enjoyed reading yours.
    If you had the time, I’d like it if you wrote in more detail, even! (Tho I realise it is an time-eater, and I was very very sad to see an excellent on-line embroidery friend give up blogging last year)
