When I started blogging a few months ago, I knew absolutely nothing about it. Except that blog is short for weblog, and that most blogs have either blogspot or wordpress in their URL. As straightgrain.blogspot.com was taken, I went for straightgrain.wordpress.com.
Now, I realise that that was not the best choice for me, as quite a few features which I wanted to use are not available on WordPress. Moreover, as most sewing blogs are hosted by Blogger, I feel like it is easier to connect with the sewing blog community from a blogspot account.
That is why I decided to move my blog to straight-grain.blogspot.com (noticed the hyphen? Pretty smart huh? ;-p).
Since my balloon dress was featured at Shwin & Shwin, a lot of people started following me via email or a feedreader. Thank you so much for that, and I hope you will do the same at straight-grain.blogspot.com! Maybe you can even connect via Google Friend Connect – one of the features not available on WordPress 😉
Here’s a sneak peek of my first new post on the new blog:
