Index innovation

Over 160 posts – whew, I’ve been doing this for 3-1/2 years !

And the total number of visits to this blog passed 375,000 on December 26 – another lovely gift of appreciation :D
(It looks as if rather a lot of people happily spent the day blog following :D)

Sometimes I think I’m running out of things I want to comment on, then I rough out 3 posts on one day, or one piece spreads into 4. . . Blogs tend to have a natural life span. I sometimes notice myself in danger of repetition, but this blog isn’t obviously soon to end !

There’s so many posts now, it does need a guide to put some structure on it all.
Considering that I just write what comes to mind without any master plan, it’s interesting that most of the posts are on a few topics.
So I’m working on a more helpful index, which is at the top of the right hand menu.
It’s a surprising amount of (not very interesting !) work so it’s progressing slowly and not complete yet. I plan to add more over the next few weeks.

Hope that makes it easier to find things.

All this wordiness and analysis is definitely a ‘niche’, not for everyone. So I’m delighted you show so much interest.

Best Wishes for the coming year.

:D :D :D :D :D Enjoy :D :D :D :D :D

    all the “wordiness and analysis” is hard to find! and very much treasured when it is.

  3. Donna Says:

    Thanks for work on the index – it will really help newbies like me who just found you.

    it is always a happy morning when I open up the computer and see that there is a new “sewingplums” post! Glad to hear that you are planning on continuing.

    I can only imagine what work it would be to index your blog… when I switched to a mirror blog from only having Livejournal, I realised that I could use keyword tags as a kind of index, which has made my finding former posts on a particular topic a lot easier. And, of course, I have not got either the kind of readership or the interesting topics that you write about… I am truly grateful that you will be indexing your posts; your blog is one that I return to again and again, not just for the current post but for your thoughtful take on sewing topics, particularly planning and the various ways a particular concept can be expressed

    I love your blog! It is one of my favorites; Indigotiger expressed my feelings very well. Showing us patterns to achieve a certain look, such as Eileen Fisher’s, is particularly interesting to me. One of my favorite designs by a favorite designer is this:

    which could inspire modifications to one version of Butterick 5816.

    Jurgen Lehl’s clothing is so innovative; wouldn’t it be wonderful if he (and others) joined the small cadre of pattern designers who offer us imaginative, artful designs.

    Am eager to explore your index, especially for wardrobe planning.

    Just keep on doing what you have been, because we all love to read it! You have definitely found your niche…J

    Thanks for a year of thoughtful posts :-). About indexing, consider the humble tag, designed just for this purpose..
