Who Should Be on our Blogroll?

Who Should Be on our Blogroll?

posted in About EnMart |

One of the things I’ve wanted to do since this blog began is create a blogroll that listed machine embroidery blogs.  For those of you who don’t know, a blogroll is something the writer of a blog creates to let readers know who else the writer reads and enjoys.  Blogs might make the list because they’re entertaining, or informative, or sometimes because of an exchange, a “we’ll put your on our blogroll if you put us on yours” kind of a thing.

Over the time this blog has existed I’ve worked to try and find blogs to add to the blogroll.  My requirements weren’t terribly stringent, but I did have a few.  In order to be added to our blogroll, the blog in question had to be:

  1. Related in some way to machine embroidery or garment decoration
  2. Well written and updated fairly regularly
  3. Useful to or entertaining for our readers

It really doesn’t seem like finding blogs to fit that criteria would be tough.  Strangely enough, the one that seems to trip me up the most is requirement number one.  I can find any number of really fabulous blogs about hand stitching and creative needlepoint projects.  They’re great, but they really don’t fit well with our subject matter.  When it comes to machine embroidery blogs, however, it appears that most machine embroiderers are too busy stitching to have time to write a blog.  I suppose that’s a good thing, but it does make creating a blogroll a bit harder to do.

All that seems to be left is throwing myself on the mercy of our readers.  While I’d like to think I know of every possible machine embroidery information source out there, I know that isn’t even remotely true.  So I’d like to ask all of you to share your resources with me.  What blogs do you read and enjoy?   You can leave a link in the comments or e-mail me and let me know who you read.  Any and all suggestions will be appreciated.
