A few weeks ago I registered to join the 2018 New Quilt Bloggers Blog Hop as a way to improve my ramblings. I’m excited about this endeavor but have to admit that I feel like I’m a little late to the party.
Learning Something New
While I’m not new to rambling (aka blogging) I am still new to knowing how to best reach an audience and what my audience needs in order to stay engaged as well as how to grow my audience. A rambler needs an audience! So when this opportunity came up I was quick to enroll.
I’m also very new to the platform “Slack” which is how the group is communicating. Add to the fact that I have been traveling for over a week and put the Slack app on “turn off notifications” I am really late to the party! Ah, but I do love a good challenge!
Always Wanting to Improve
I am eager to catch up and be a part of this group of quilt bloggers helping each other. As I know more I will share more – especially excited to find new blogs to follow and I hope you will follow along too.
Tentative Schedule For 2018 New Quilt Bloggers Program
- Early March: Welcome participants via E-mail and get everyone into the Slack group to facilitate and begin the conversations.
- March: Get to know one another through a series of weekly planned prompts through the Slack group.
- March: Optional structured blog critique groups will be conducted.
- April: First half (2 weeks) of a blog hop.
- May: Second half (2 weeks) of a blog hop.
I’m all In
This event is limited to 100 bloggers so I feel very privileged to be a part of the group. I know I will grow as a blogger and learn from the best of them! Stay tuned and as always, if you have a comment please let me know what you are thinking, specify how I can improve as a blogger, a quilter, and a teacher. All comments are read and taken into consideration!
This is Karen Overton, The Quilt Rambler, eager to catch up after being out of town! Stay tuned for that ramble soon!
