Guest posting – would you like to contribute to my blog?

Hi there, I was just listening to my favorite podcast aimed at yarn industry entrepreneurs and they were talking about “guest posting” on blogs and I thought that might be something interesting to explore. It could be fun for someone to get a featured post on a different blog and that both the blog owner and the guest poster would enjoy a larger exposure and so forth, so a sort of a win-win situation. What do you think? You don’t have to be a blogger just want to write an interesting piece knitting related and want to share it with others. I have a few ideas here for possible post topics for you:

1) How you came to be a knitter – when and how did you learn, what do you knit most, do you have a preferred knitting needle (circular, spn, dpn), where do you find your patterns, pictures of a finished item…

2) Have you ever knit an exceptional piece – a special shawl, your first large garment, something for a charity, share pictures and story around that particular project

3) A fun story around your life as a knitter

4) Your favorite how to books, knitting books or magazines, knitting pattern websites or websites/blogs which have great resources for knitters be it beginners or confirmed knitters, something you would like to share with the rest of us

5) Tell us about knitting in your country of origin or residence, is knitting a big cultural thing, do most people there knit from a young age, use a special technique, knit a particular traditional piece, or is knitting looked at as something only old ladies do, do you participate in any social events for knitters in your area etc

6) A knitting vacation – have you ever been on one if so tell us all about it, where and when, what you did, what you thought of it, what you learned, the people you met, will you be doing this again, any ideas for a future knitting vacation

7) Knitting to heal and stay sane – have you experienced the healing powers of knitting be it for a physical illness or a mental one? Explain and share your experience, did you do a knitting therapy, did you knit during chemo therapy, have you taught knitting to someone that is ill, have you seen the healing powers in someone close to you, do you know of charities or knitting groups particularly aimed at this aspect of knitting etc

8) Are you a ______ knitter – tell us why you mostly/only knit shawls/socks/baby items/charity knits etc, tell us about your favorite pattern/s, your favorite material/wool, favorite designer, favorite technique etc

9) Do you maybe have an original idea for a blog post? Something dear to your heart you would like to share?

I’m sure you have lots of more ideas, these are just the ones that come to my mind as I’m writing this morning. I think it could be lots of fun to have people share their stories here on my blog and that would enrich my blog and our experience as a blog reader for all of us.

If you would like to contribute a post to my blog, please send me an email to: knittinginfrance@gmail.com

Please include your details:

1) name and country of residence

2) if you are a beginner knitter or a more advanced one

3) what you would like to write about

4) if you have a blog then include a link to your blog or if you have contributed to other blogs

We will then discuss your post in more detail and how to submit and when. Depending on your reactions this could become a regular feature or just a pleasant addition to the blog from time to time. Either way it will be a blast:)

But before saying goodbye, here are two more photos of the latest rovings I did – yesterday I told you about and showed you pictures of the rovings I just dyed for the I Knit Fandango – and here are the two that I dyed gradient style
