Microblogging and Me: A Resurrection

I've recently regained some of my sewing mojo and I've decided to breathe some life into the old blog at the same time.

I've never been good at keeping this blog up to date so I've come up with a plan to help me be more consistent in my posts. The plan is to use my Instagram captions as mini-blog posts for the time being and see how it goes from there.

So why post on here at all if I'm just going to be using the same stuff as on insta? There are two main reasons really:

1) I like to do pattern research by looking at other people's blogs and I almost always search for examples of finished garments that have been made in my size and in a specific fabric. Instagram's search function doesn't really work for that purpose and I want people to be able find my pattern reviews and fitting noes for their own research.

2) I find insta captions much easier to write than full blog posts. I can do it on the go and there's a bit less pressure to get it perfect which will enable me to post a little more frequently (I hope!).

So that's the plan. Let's see how it goes shall we!
