I may be an optimist here, but I'm hoping that this blog will end up with lots of very active members. One of the reasons we are currently limiting your yarn choices is so that individuals can find useful information and inspiration specific to their project. If the blog takes off as we hope it does, it will be cumbersome for individuals to have to slog through the archives to find relevant posts. To make this easier, you can use Blogger's labeling tool to indicate the topic or topics covered in your post.
Labels should indicate items such as:
- type of yarn
- name of project
- topic of post (sketches, swatches, hems, sleeves, etc)
- milestones/status of project (finished, frogged, on hold, update)
- other as relavant
Simply enter your labels here. Please type your labels in lower case for consistency. Separate each item with a comma.
For example, if your project is named, Joan of Arc and is worked in Denim, and you are discussing your swatches, your labels might be:
joan of arc, denim, swatchingNote that "joan of arc" is in lower case and that the other words are separated by commas.
Before you select your labels, though, it's a good idea to check all the other labels in use. For instance, we don't want to have the labels; "swatch," "swatching," and "gauge swatch," all referring to the same thing. Instead, you want all posts about swatching to be labeled identically.
To check the existing list of labels in use, simple click the "Show All" link next to the label field.
From the homepage, you can click on topics that interest you and see all properly labeled posts.
