curate crew, it’s polling time. I’ve been blogging for almost 2 years now and really have loved creating posts for you but I feel like I haven’t heard at all from you lovely readers. What posts have you liked? What have you hated? Are the series interesting or are you wondering ‘what series’?
I’ve been thinking a lot about the kind of blog I want this to be. ctrl + curate was always meant to be a DIY lifestyle blog that delivered useful and detailed steps so we all can learn new skills together.
Like embroidery! DMC recently launched their 1000 Patterns Project which makes access to modern embroidery even easier! Except… I had no clue where to start. I ended up searching through 20 different sites just to get started. And when I was finally ready to start, I found a line buried on one of the simple stitches guides that explained you need to split the thread. 🤦🏽♀️
That would have been a lot of pretty thread gone to waste. All in all, it took a whole weekend to work my way to my first project- and I loved the final piece! I made coordinating Gemini no sew plant covers for my 2 twin succulents and am swooning over the results. I just wish it hadn’t taken that long to get started.
Which leads me to my ultimate question curate crew. What if there were comprehensive guides for basic DIY skills? Would you guys like that or are streamlined, simplified posts what you come here for? Sound off in the comments or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org 🙂
