Ok, so here is my crazy idea. I\’ve been thinking about it some more over the last several days and trying to work out some of the details. I still don\’t have it completely planned out, but here is a rough idea of what I\’ve been thinking about.
I really need to get my butt in gear and design some more patterns. I thought the best way to do that is to come up with some sort of challenge for myself. But the problem being, if I don\’t tell anyone about it, then it\’s not really a challenge and I can completely ignore it and I\’m right back where I started.
That led to Emily\’s Crazy Dishcloth Challenge, or something like that. I\’ll work on the name. The challenge will be something like this:
I will try to see how many days in a row I can add a new pattern to my website. The basic rule being that I need to add one pattern to the website sometime within a day. So if I have two patterns to add and I put one up before midnight and one after midnight, then I\’m counting it. It\’s my challenge, so I can make up the crazy rules. I may even break them slightly, so long as I can keep up the general average of one per day. I will post semi-daily updates here on the blog.
Now here\’s where my dishcloth fans come in. Ok, so maybe I don\’t have fans, but I will need cheerleaders. Every seven days, anyone who has posted a nice little encouraging comment on the blog, will get their name thrown into a hat. I will draw out a winning name and that person will win all of the patterns for that week for free. And then the contest resets for the next seven days. And I keep going until I run out of steam, until life gets too busy, or until I run out of planned ideas (which I have close to 100 right now so I don\’t think that\’s going to be the problem!). I\’m still trying to think of something to do at the end of the whole thing. Maybe a special pattern for all my cheerleaders.
What do you think? I won\’t start right away. I still have to get the September Free pattern up, and I want to run a KAL for the October pattern. I\’m thinking that after that KAL finishes, then I can start the challenge. Besides, that will give me a little time to try to get a few patterns stockpiled. LOL
So if you don\’t think it\’s too crazy, watch this space for the start of the challenge and get ready to be a cheerleader for me. A quick note will get your name in and you can win some patterns. I\’ll let you know when it starts.
