Crochet Meme Making – My First Attempt

I’m working on my crochet meme making skills.  Here’s my first attempt!

Not all who wander are lost

Not all who wander are lost… Imperial Crochet version.

I made this on Canva using one of their free templates.

I keep reading that visuals are going to be even more important to online marketing and promotion of blogs and websites in 2018 so I thought I’d better brush up on my visual skills including taking better photos, creating funny and/or helpful crochet quotes, and building better memes that can be shared on Social Media.

Becoming more visual on Social Media is just one of my 2018 goals towards building my blog with unique content, Providing inspiration for my faithful followers, and expanding my crochet business.

Do you have any special goals for your blog or business in 2018?  Feel free to share your thoughts and ideas in the comments.  I love hearing from my readers.  And I’d love some new ideas to add to my list of goals.

  1. And once we DO find that crochet hook, we then need to figure out which chair we were sitting in when the last of half-a-dozen pairs of yarn snips dissappeared between the cushions . . . 😉

    I Love Canva!!! *Just had to say that.

    This is a very nice meme, subtle and soft. Not too in your face. Perhaps you could do a few versions of it, maybe one with a photo of yarns or hooks in the background and one with a brighter, richer color like reds or oranges. Then test and see how each works for you for marketing.

    To answer your question: My goals is to increase my blog to a point where I’m making passive income from pattern, printout, and kit sales.

      Thank you for the suggestions and advice Kati. I was thinking about using some of my own crochet photos too. I appreciate you stopping by. Good luck with your blogging goals too!

  4. Firstly, love the quote. The first half is from my fav film so EXTRA KUDOS. Canva is amazing, its great that we get access to such awesome tools. Now this question might sound dumb but, what are visuals? And how can i add this into my blog. I am trying to take my blog in a new direction and have been planning what to add and change, so curious.
    My goals for my blog is to just post what i love! I’ve added all categories. I would love increase my audience and then hopefully one day (once i am better at calligraphy and watercolour) i can design my own little quotations or inspirational canvases to sell.

    Have a great day!

      No questions are ever dumb. All photos are basically visuals. What I’ve been reading about as a visual is simply a photo with the title of your blog post on it, or a funny or useful quote in front of a photo or just some drawings with words (as I did) that can be shared on your blog or social media “as is”. You can post it on Pinterest or Twitter or Facebook and get attention because it’s maybe funny or colorful. People also make lists into visuals. the goal of a visual is to get it shared in hopes it goes viral.

      • Ahhhh i see, i think i get it now. So its just a better way to get the eye caught? Rather than just starting off with writing.. And like if you wanted to show off your makes from your shop, you could make a photo collage for your IG stuff like that? I’ll have a good think of stuff to make for my blog etc thank you!

    I like your quote, and the way you presented it. My photos need work, my composition is often quite lacking!

  6. I think that’s a great idea. I’m always wishing I could come up with cute and yarny quotes for memes. Looks like you have the talent for it. I’m looking forward to reading them.
