Christa’s Soapbox – Blogging Goal Accomplished

I am a very goal-oriented person and I work well with to-do lists, schedules and check boxes. At the end of last year, I made a list of Quilting Goals and I get a certain sense of satisfaction when I can cross something off my list and move onto the next item.

Today, I get to put a “done” next to my goal of improving my blog. Jason and I have worked really hard over the last few weeks to update and organize the blog so it’s easier to read and more fun to follow!

Here are just a few things we’ve accomplished:

  • Renamed the blog url to ChristaQuiltsBlog.com. It’s still located on WordPress and the old links will still work. But it makes it easier for Google and others to find me!
  • Set up the domain ChristasQuiltAlong.com. It points to my blog with a page set up exclusively for my quilt alongs. Now you can find them all in one place!
  • Cleaned up the sidebar so it shows organized, pertinent information and links.
  • Have now attracted over 1000 blog followers –Β  can we make it 2000?
  • Added links at the top to more easily find my tutorials, quilt alongs, and flickr group with more to come!
  • Reorganized my blog categories to make them easier to find and read.
  • Added a button for other bloggers to spread the word about my quilt along:
<div align="center"><a href="http://christasquiltalong.com" title="Christa's Quilt Along" target="_blank"><img src="https://christaquilts.files.wordpress.com/2013/03/christas-quilt-along-175-2.png" alt="Christa's Quilt Along" style="border:none;" /></a></div>

Wow! It felt really good to check that off my list. πŸ™‚

    Christa, I am looking at the url and i am reading christaquiltsblog.com….the “s” is after quilt, not your name. Just thought I would point that out. Perhaps it doesn’t make one bit of difference. Love your blog and all your quilt alongs.

    I love your site and have ordered fabric . My question is … I am looking for the name of a panel I bought 3 years ago. It is black,red, and cream. Children sewing. Retro looking. The coordinating fabrics are buttons, needle and tread, pin cushions, spools. I know I won’t find it again, but if you possibly remember a name of the panel would be helpful.
    Thank you,
