Thanks everyone for your help with picking my next sewing machine. I’m going to be going to pick it out today so check back soon to see what I decided and for an initial impression review. You may notice I’ve created a section on the right hand side of my blog for Friends and Affiliates. Shona Stitches – a great sewing blog that I have followed for a while now – posted this week about an idea of doing a banner swap with small time bloggers to support each other and gain readership. She got the idea from Scavenger Hunt. Here’s the concept from Melissa at Scavenger Hunt:
“Hi fellow bloggers! I’ve been working hard lately on improving all aspects of my blog and I had an idea: would any of you fellow small-time bloggers out there would be interested in doing a little banner ad swap for the month of July? Basically we would agree to display each other’s buttons in our sidebars for a month as a way to support each other and grow our audience without any extra cost. Win-win, right?”
I think it’s brilliant and have already got these two lovely ladies on my sidebar. If any other Sewing/DIY/Craft bloggers wants to do a swap please get in touch. I still have space. It’s a great way to find new bloggers too
Just email me with your blog address and a 250×100 pixel banner image attached.
Here’s my banner to put on your blog.
