Almost 4 years ago, we started BB Knits, and at the same time started blogging with Xanga. While it served it's purpose when we started, we've learned a lot along the way, including some things we need to change. The key to running a successful internet business is to, of course, be on the internet. This has not been one of our strong suits, as our old blog was not incredibly user friendly, so it really bogged us down with updates. That said, we've obviously moved here to Blogger, which is much more user friendly, and will hopefully help us stay motivated to be online more.
We also felt it important to change the name of our blog. The fact is, this blog is not only a knitting/business blog, but we frequently blog about family life, our quilting endeavors, and whatever suits us along the way (although it's primarily knitting and quilting related). While we've heard from many how much you like that we've put a "human face" on our company, we've also heard from several that they wish our blog was focused more on knitting. While I'd love to commit to that, I know better. I do like to write, and I write to what suits me at the moment. Some of our best customers have been loyal customers for almost the 4 years we've been in business, and have become dear friends along the way because they've come to know who we are.
While our Xanga site will still be up and available for several more months, we are going to try to see what, if anything, we can move to this blog. If we can't move it, we just start anew.
In the meantime, go ahead and subscribe, so you can be the first to know about new colorways, patterns, yarn clubs and various other additions coming to the shop. Here's looking forward to the change :-)
