Debbie, Good for you for starting a blog! It will be fun to see everybody's projects and progress through the year.

Top tips for social blogging:
1. Lots of pictures
2. Keep it regular
3. Don't be afraid to go 'off topic', your cat's antics are just as interesting as your quilt projects
4. Better to avoid 'heavy' politics and religion unless you only want to read and be read by people who think exactly like you
5. Be careful what you post, there are a few weirdos out there altho not so many in Alaska because there are fewer of you :)
