First, I’m not going to apologize because I talk too much on here. Every now and then, there’s a day when there are 9 or 10 posts. My blog is my diary. If I need to go back and see when Houdi hatched, or when I picked the first tomato hornworm off my tomato plants, the info is on the blog. I know . . not all of it interests everyone and some of you are here purely for the free quilt patterns and Quilt Alongs. Please remember that what you’re getting isn’t costing you a dime so if your efforts to find things get to be too troublesome, maybe you can find patterns and books to buy instead of coming here for the freebies. Yes, it aggravates me when someone gets rude because they can’t find something!
If you write me asking for something that’s easily searchable, I’m probably not going to respond. Do you know what I have to do to find things on the blog? The exact same thing you would have to do! But then I have to copy/paste the link in an email to you. It’s not that I’m too busy to help but . . I kinda am!
There’s a search bar on the right sidebar. Put in what you’re looking for and chances are, it will pop right up. Sometimes a whole lot of things come up and you may have to look through a dozen or so posts to find what you’re looking for. Remember . . there are patterns you can buy that are probably much easier for you to use!
To those who were looking for the alternate colorings for Road to Llano . . I’m not talking to you. And, I’ve added a link to that post on the main Road to Llano page. To get there, click on the Road to Llano picture in the left sidebar.
I’m talking about rudeness! But, since one reader couldn’t find the alternate colorings for the Road to Llano post, let’s use that for an example. I remember that the title of the post was “Alternate Colors for Road to Llano” so I would put “alternate” in the search bar but since you didn’t write the post, you might not remember “alternate”. Simply put in Llano and yes, you’ll get every post where I mentioned this quilt or our trips to Llano but you will find the alternate colors post.
This is a good time to mention that with the Quilt Alongs, I will answer questions and help with problems during the Quilt Along but not afterwards. If someone writes me with a question/problem with a pattern we did 2 years ago, I can’t remember without delving deeply into the pattern. I think some of you would be surprised at the number of questions I get each day about older patterns or about finding something on the blog.
Really . . I’m not trying to be rude or unhelpful. Any time you can’t remember something and it isn’t something you can find on the blog, I’ll try to help. Yesterday a reader wanted to know my opinion about the new camera I bought recently. Of course she didn’t remember the brand (neither did I) so searching “camera” and finding the post would have been downright impossible because I probably mention “camera” too often. I looked at my camera to see the brand (Samsung) and then I searched the blog and sent her the link, along with some thoughts on the camera.
If you need to remind me of something . . like “On the Needles” post that I forgot on Friday, or remind me of anything I said I was going to do and then forgot, I welcome those emails! I’m not remembering things so well these days! 🙁
Please try your best to find things and if you have problems . . then contact me and I’ll do my best to help.
