I am late to the party.
Technology has never been my ‘thing.’ The fact that I even know what Ravelry is is rather astonishing. Yes, I use it. I purchase patterns from it all the time. If I want to find anything I’ve made before, I look at what is in my library.
But I have never used it. Not to its full potential at any rate. Friending people? Forums? Groups? Projects and updates and stashes? What have I been missing?! (Or, perhaps as important, have I been missing anything?)
So this January I am jumping on the Ravelry bandwagon to give it a try as JourneytoHandmade. Look me up and friend me if you haven’t already! (Note to my friends who know me personally: I simply changed my old username, so we are still connected). At this precise moment there isn’t anything too exciting to see on my account, but that is all about to change.
My game plan is simple: spend a month familiarizing myself with the features, joining groups, and becoming a full blown “Raveler.” At the end of January, I’ll reflect on what I am loving and what is worth letting go.
Do you use Ravelry? Which features (if any?) are most worth using to you? Are there things that you used to use but stopped using because it took too much time and wasn’t worth it? What groups are worth joining? Are there parts of Ravelry you’ve always wanted to figure out but haven’t yet?
