New design and the future!

Folks, I want to thank you for sticking with me yesterday. If you visited the site, you most likely found it struggling with an identity issue. That's because I've decided to go with a new, more feminine and less cluttered look and feel for the blog. A huge thanks and round of applause goes to Kate over at 17th Avenue Design who has made this lovely template. I feel it really represents my own personal style and I couldn't be happier.

The new design overhaul also means that I'm getting more serious about the blog. I love writing and sharing various knitting ideas with you all, and I plan to do so more frequently. I'm thinking bigger and better things for The Rural Knitter -- guest posts, giveaways, tutorials, etc.

I plan on offering Sponsor packages to get involved with the knitting and blogging communities out there. It's such a great method of spreading the word and I can't wait to get involved. So look out for opportunities to advertise on my blog and vice versa.

I'd also love to increase my readership. That seems to be the whole idea behind blogging, eh? In light of that, I always subscribe to the "follow me, I'll follow you" policy. I absolutely love discovering new blogs and learning about others! So, feel free to follow the blog and we can become blogging friends.

Now, this is where you all come in. Are any of you readers avid bloggers? Do you have any tips on how to make a blog more 'visible'? As a newbie, I'd love to hear any advice you may have!

Thanks for checking out The Rural Knitter.

  1. Hi Kayla!
    You knit beautifully. I do not. People have tried to teach me. It always ends in tears -- and I am never the one who is crying.
    David Winsor, who is my cousin, directed me to your blog. I think it is quite pretty. I have become a follower.
    I wanted to invite you to join a facebook group I am in called The Craft Cafe.
    There people from all over the world, doing all kinds of knitting, crochet, sewing, baking, etc. I am sure they would love to visit your blog too.
    Here is the link:
