Over the next week or so we’ll be making some changes to the site here at Roving Crafters. Back when we had 32 visitors a day (and I was damn thrilled to have them!) we could get by with a little freebie site from WordPress. But now there are so many more of you and the upgrades I thought we could put off for at least six more months have to be done pretty soon.
Its all your fault. You know that right? You readers have forced me into this.
I’ve been stressing in a big way over these upgrades. If I had to do it all by myself, I’d be over in the corner having an anxiety attack. Fortunately I have Jess. Jess has been telling me things like “it will be fine”, “it won’t be as hard as you think”, and “no, you won’t break the internet”.
So we’re doing it. For reals. Wish me luck. And…
…since we are going to be mucking around with the site anyway, I thought this would be a good time to solicit some feedback. I tried to make today’s poll about that. What changes would you like to see? You can click more than one answer and if there is something you want to see happen but its not in the poll, let us know in the comment section. Also, if you’d like to express sympathy for Jess as she
drags me kicking and screaming guides me through this process you can put that in the comment section as well. She might need an “atta girl” or two.

You are not allowed to feel guilty about asking for anything! I want this blog to be less of a monologue and more of a dialogue. I live for feedback. I put all that stuff in the poll because its stuff I want. If I could wave a magic wand, we would have all those improvements in one big POOF!
I’ll keep up the humor… I mean snark… I mean humor. No worries. I was born with the smart-ass gene and have trouble suppressing it in fact.
I like this site too. I found the Woolery thru it. So Jenn you are helping in more ways than you know.
I like what you have going on here visually, so please don’t change it! I’m one of the search function votes. I know how to make Google search just one site for things, but that can be a pain on my tablet or phone.
We definitely need a search engine feature. I’ll see what I…errr I mean Jess! can set up for us.
I like the minimalist website themes. Can you tell? lol
I think your site is great and actually like it for it’s spartan(ism), is that a word, and I don’t mean it in a negative way. I do love your humor and especially the variety of creative ideas you are willing to share with us. Thanks. Good luck Jess on whatever changes you make to the site, I’ll still be hanging around no matter how it changes, I hope.
Ok! I’m convinced. me and jess both like the minamalist look but we wondered if it might be boring the pants off everyone else. But if ya’ll like, I’m keeping it! I’d rather spend my time writing and knitting (and crocheting and spinning and doing almost anything else) instead of fiddling with computer stuff.
And thanks so much for the words of encouragement. I live for that.
