Thanks to Rachel at One Pretty Thing for tweeting about us! We’re up to 30 responses…high five to all you crafty bloggers!
I dug up this Twitter tutorial. Check out the sewing/bird-themed slideshow! Now that I’m looking for it, the diy look, the aesthetic, is everywhere. I wonder: is this because so many crafty people use Twitter? Is it just the trend (see Anthropologie‘s store decor)? Are new media–Twitter, Facebook, Ning, and all the rest–somehow inspiring or inspired by making stuff in real life?
What do you think?
We’ve passed the 10-survey mark–woohoo! Thank you very much to all the bloggers who participated. Super thank you to Christine for sharing and posting a link to the survey on the forums in Ravelry. Welcome, knit and crochet-bloggers!
A few questions have come up…first, is the survey intentionally US-focused, and second, what is the end product of all this?
So, here are a few answers: yes, the survey is intentionally US-focused (for now, at least!) because my goal is to write a book about the crafty/diy movement in the US. I received a grant from UNH, where I am a grad student, to conduct this survey in preparation for writing. I’m going to share the results here with everyone, of course, and I hope that they will be of use or interesting to you. I hope they spark plenty of conversation, too! Feel free to email me if you have any other questions.
Thanks again, crafters!
The Craft Book Project is the home for the Craft Book Survey. If you are a craft blogger, please take the survey by clicking the tab at the top of the page! Whether you’ve been blogging for 3 months or 3 years, we want to hear from you. Whether you last posted this morning or sometime this year, we want to hear from you!
We believe that craft blogging is an economic and social revolution. The survey is helping to find out who is a craft blogger and how successful craft bloggers are, financially and in other ways. We will share our results with the world, including you. Thanks for stopping by!
