Back in August of 2013 we started a little campaign to create a Sewing category on Bloglovin. Almost 1700 votes and 23 months later, it's here! (AND HEY OH HAI VERONICA!)
Now, I've never been a fan of categorization, per se, especially as a mixed chick actress who comes across roadblocks daily in terms of labels, BUT, I have a feeling I'm going to enjoy the bejesus out of this little classification. Mainly because of this:
FIND. BLOGS. IN. SEWING!!!
Look y'all, I love me a good Diy/Craft blog, but when my fingers do the walking to find new fodder, I'm looking for 80% sewing and 20% glue gun.
I'm always baffled when people on the street are surprised to hear that I sew. Generally, their view of sewing is of extinct Home Ec classes. Of course, we know better. Of course, we are all BRILLIANT SPARKLY FABULOUS THINGS that wear BRILLIANT SPARKLY FABULOUS THINGS that we made ourselves!*
And in my opine a new dedicated Sewing category on the top blog reader on the web is a great way to let your friends, romans, countrymen (not to mention, businesses) know that sewing is back, yo.
So! If you'd like to make the switch from Crafting to Sewing, just click on your little icon in the upper right hand corner, next to the search bar (below, mine is that little yellowish circle of me with scissors in my mouth). In the drop down menu, directly under Profile, choose Blog Analytics...
Which brings you to your super fancy analytics page.
Click "edit blog info", and in the pop up window you can choose which category you'd like your corner of the web to exist in.
And that's it! (You can also just click on the temporary banner Bloglovin added for us on the feed page.) It takes several hours for Bloglovin to update your info, but that Sewing category is growing by leaps and bounds. Certainly, the posts here will still be about any number of things, who can tell the inner workings of my noggin, but I'm so stoked to find new sewing peeps. Love ya, Free People. Love ya, Beautiful Mess. Love ya, I Spy DIY. I'll come check on you from time to time, but me and my friends gots some stitching to do.
(*not necessarily sparkly, but always brilliant and fabulous.)
