Building Blogs

authorWhere have I been? Off building blogs! I’m serious, since the last time I blogged here until today, I’ve set up and am working 3 more blogs.

“Karen, what are ya thinkin’? You can’t even keep up with this one!”

Well, you have a point there. However, I’ve come up with a schedule, and I plan to stick with it. I have a bad habit of starting things and then abandoning them. I’ve recognized the problem (isn’t that the first step?) and now, I’m going to tackle it. First, I’d like to introduce you to my three new children, er, blogs –

diyserendipity.com  Come with me on our house hunt, and some of the DIY projects we’ll be doing to make the house our own. I talk about – yup – DIY projects, and sometimes I’ll drag out my soapbox, but I warn you about it with a title that says “This post may contain snarky opinions.”

knitsforsale.com This is a site I’ve been working on for over a year. Not every day. But it’s always in the back of my mind – how am I going to get this to work the way I want it to? Well, the planets lined up properly and I held my mouth the right way and blammo – there it was! Just in the beginning phases, but you can open your own little shop to sell your hand knit/crochet items, your digital patterns and it’s all very exciting 🙂

and finally,

karensaari.com Oh, this one is my editor’s website. My website highlighting my services as an editor. That first sentence is ambiguous. (and therefore wrong) It’s not the website of MY editor. See how that works? 🙂 This is the one that makes me the most nervous. The minute people start reading it, I’ll be getting email after email – typo here, incorrect sentence structure there, wrong word, etc. etc.

The schedule

DIY Serendipity – I post on Mondays and Fridays and have a Saturday newsletter.

Knits For Sale – Right now I post a few times a week as things unfold and features are added. But, when the dust settles I’ll be posting Monday, Wednesday and Friday. A newsletter on Wednesday.

Karen Saari – I’ll post on Tuesday and Thursdays. Maybe Saturdays with a newsletter on Mondays. This is the newest site and all decisions have not been made yet.

If you happen to be interested in any of these topics, please go and subscribe to the email posts or the Newsletters. If you knit/crochet/spin/weave you are invited to join us at Knits For Sale 🙂

I’m not selling anything on any of my sites (except for my services as an Editor), so you know I’m not just trying to get sales. I love to write, and I really enjoy feedback, so jump in and feedback!
