Well, I'm new at this, and I hope I do it correctly.

The SBQ question for this week is: How do you decide which stitching blogs are worth repeat and/or regular viewings? Are there certain things you look for in particular? Are there things you wish there were more of? Less of? Is your blog a good example of what you like to read?

I like brief, to-the-point entries, updated often, with lots of pictures or free charts, or both. I prefer pictures of completed projects to WIPs. Most of my favorite stitching blogs seem to be French sites - they seem to fit my criteria best. I don't speak French but have learned to recognize key phrases to find the stitching things I'm interested in and I don't spend a lot of time reading parts I'm not interested in. They show a lot of creative finishing ideas and seem to delight in variations of their designs that stitchers come up with. I like for stitching blogs to be about stitching! I think my blog is a good example of what I like - except for the lack of links to other sites of interest, something I hope to rectify soon.
