...my own Bookmarkable Blog Assessment. That smarts some, but it's true. To earn my "CTRL-D" a blog must meet each of my Rigorous Standards of Excellence:
1. Tutes? Sweet! In the world of the craft-blog, tutorials and giveaways are absolutely de rigueur. I seem to be sadly lacking in both departments, at the moment. However, once I dig my way out of the rubble that is my craft room , I'll make an attempt to rectify this lamentable state of affairs.
2. Great Photos I'm looking for clear, well-cropped, and relatively germane pictures. Ahem. Well, at least I've got photos...let's just say I'm working on it.
3. Je ne sais quois Call it voice, charisma, or just plain personality--if it's not there, I'm gone after the first click. Make me want to read about your coffee, your carpool, or your new drop spindle. (Getting there, I think...)
4. Spelling Counts--use your spellchecker, folks. And if you truly can't differentiate between you're and your, they're, their, and there or its and it's, then it's probably time to get a new hobby. (I give myself full marks in this small regard, at least.)
'Kay. That being said, I offer you, my unsuspecting readers, an utterly gratuitous snap of tonight's supper: Kirk's Curry (I can get my kids to eat most things by sticking a Trekkie reference into the name. Try it...)
