Today I came across The Daily Post, which is a WordPress site that provides bloggers with daily and weekly prompts. I was intrigued because I find it really interesting to think of so many bloggers reading a one word prompt and then writing completely different stories about it. Some write poems. Some write creative stories. For others, the prompt sparks a memory and they proceed to tell their tale.
For me, those are the best ones.
Today’s prompt is the word YARN. Okay, so that’s not really a unique topic starter for a crochet blog but it really did catch my eye for another reason.
As you know, a yarn can also be a story. And lately, I’ve been toying with the idea of starting a new feature here at Imperial Crochet.
I’m always so curious about other people’s crochet stories. Who taught them? How long they’ve been playing with a hook and yarn? Why they created a certain piece. What inspires them to choose a certain pattern or color of yarn?
At my old job, as a community manager, from time to time, we’d do interviews with our authors. It was always so much fun getting to know them better and learning from them.
I’d like to do that again.
I’d love to interview my fellow crocheters and have you “Spin a Yarn” for me that I can publish right here on Imperial Crochet.
If you’re interested in sharing a crochet story with me and my readers, let me know by sending me an email with the words “Spin a Yarn” in the subject line to imperialcrochet at gmail.com and I’ll send you a few questions that you can pick and choose from. And if you don’t like the questions, or change your mind after receiving them, that’s okay too.
I will need at least one photo to share on the blog post with the interview. It can be one of you, your craft area, or your crochet item. Completely your choice.
There’s no payment for this, it’s just for fun but, of course, in the interview, I’ll provide a link back to your blog so you’ll get a little promotion out of it.
Be sure to follow me here on WordPress (There’s a button in the sidebar.) so I can keep you up to date on this venture.
I don’t know if I’ll be using all, or even any more of, of the daily prompts at The Daily Post for ideas for my blog but I’m sure glad I found today’s because it PROMPTED me to go ahead with my new interview idea.
I can’t wait to see who responds to this!
