Remember last year’s Knitting and Crochet Blog Week? Eskimi is back, after some offline time – in the meanwhile, her blog has changed from eskimimiknits.com to eskimimimakes.com. And now that she’s back, she is organizing another Knitting and Crochet Blog Week for 2012. The idea is that bloggers post on the same topic on the same day, and that way you can see all kinds of different posts on the same topic. Oh, and there’s a wild card topic, in case you want to substitute that for one of the topics. The fun starts April 23rd, and the topics will be announced April 2nd. That way there’s enough time to draft the posts ahead of time, especially if they require extra preparation – last year some people made up really creative video blog posts, or little animations etc. Plus it’s way easier to get all those photographs done ahead of time – this time I might go on little photographing jaunts instead of photographing on my bedroom floor. There are specific post tags to use for each day’s posts – don’t use them yet since to keep those tags only for the actual posts (otherwise other posts will also pop up on Google). The tags themselves are already announced, and this year there’ll be prizes! Yay!
You can find last year’s Knitting and Crochet Blog Week posts by searching for the 2KCBW tags, e.g. 2KCBWDAY1 for the first day, etc, or Knitting and Crochet Blog Week. Or if you’re interested in seeing my posts from last year, you can search the blog for the tag 2KCWB and it should show all my participating posts.
It really is a lot of fun, and it challenges you to go beyond your normal blogging habits. I encourage you to participate – and spread the word! The more, the merrier!
