The secret is out

Foray into printed media

So according to my family, I'm famous. A few weeks ago I was interviewed for a story on blogging and whether social networking tools such as Facebook and Twitter have killed blogging. I didn't say so but apparently they have . The article was featured in the Green Guide section in The Age. If you're really keen, go check out the full article.

I am a little tickled when my friends say after reading the article and with a hint of sympathy in their tone, "Oh at least it's a good picture". Come on guys, my quote wasn't that bad! Independent designers have used blogging as a successful marketing tool. Look at Lara, Aunty Cookie, Cheeky Beaks...!

In other "news", stay tuned for pics of my new clutch which features one of Louise's pretty buttons.

What is wrong with your quote? Hmm...I don't think facebook is going to end all to blogging. Facebook is a great way to reconnect and network with people but I find that blogging gives you a better view of creative individuals such as yourself!

Yes I definitely agree. I have found more people interested in craft through blogging than randomly via Facebook! In fact, I have met no new people through Facebook who are interested in the same things as me but blogging has opened a completely new world of networks!
