Dear Fans of the EDS Blog,
Would you like to help save this blog? You need to take action and enroll the help of your friends as well.
See the "Followers" List to the right? I need to know there is sufficient interest in this blog in order for me to keep it alive. I need you to add yourself to the followers list. I need you to read this post and give me feedback.
In case you haven't noticed, I took the blog offline in mid-June. Before that, daily posting that you all enjoyed since October 2006 stopped in November 2007. I felt there was a lack of support for the blog (lack of support / lack of interest because no one communicated with us that they liked our blog posts), not to mention that I was over-committed in too many projects. I received many emails while the blog was offline, asking for permission to read the blog. I turned people away saying the blog was "closed for maintenance."
At one point, I considered transferring the rights to a scrapbook manufacturer.
At one point, I considered transferring the rights to one of the scrapbook magazines.
At one point, I considered a way to make the blog into an online magazine of its own.
It's never been about the money. I have this on blogger because blogger is free. I never asked anyone for money in order to advertise on this site, and the only reason I took on advertisers was a way to compensate the generous & talented ladies who helped me run the blog. I no longer wish to have advertisers of any kind.
I just couldn't keep on giving out free information while no one was leaving any feedback for us on whether the tutorials were useful, any feedback on if they found our newsletters informative, any feedback for any of the hardwork we have been doing.
If you want to save this blog, then you have to interact with us. I can't read your minds people. If you want to save this blog, I need you to take a moment when you read a tutorial to give it a rating
- 4 stars for outstanding
- 3 stars for average
- 2 stars for anything below average (explain)
That's it. Follow us and interact with us by leaving feedback and/or ratings. You do that and this blog will stick around. We might undergo some changes here and there but until you tell us you want us, this blog might end up gone forever.
I look forward to hearing from you all.
