3rd Blogoversary!

Can you believe that another year has gone by?  It seems like only yesterday it was my 2nd blogoversary and now look!  Once again I will ask you how you think I could improve Hammermarks in the coming year.

What sort of posts would you like to see more of?

Some of my all time most popular posts were my hammer posts, studio tour, and artist of the month posts.  Should I do more posts like these?  Or do you want to see something different?  Are your favorite posts ones featuring my latest work?  In progress posts?  Posts where I rant on existential aspects of craft/art?

What’s the best post you ever saw here on Hammermarks?

Was it a review of an exhibition, event, or book?  Was it one of my Super Bowl posts?  Something else entirely?

What’s something I should stop doing on the blog?

Is there something I do that simply drives you crazy?  Do you, like WordPress, hate my use of passive voice and complex sentence structure?  Do you get annoyed by all my questions?

Mmmm...Blogoversary Cake

Now I want to give some props to all the people who have sent you here:

There are others, but these are the top 10.  Please, visit them!

And, just for fun, the number one search term of all time that people used to find Hammermarks is…FOLD FORMING (I can live with that!)

Now please, I really do want your feedback (positive or negative as long as it’s constructive) so leave a comment or email me your thoughts on how to improve Hammermarks.

  1. I gotta leave a reply on this post!

    First, happy 3rd blogoversary Wendy! Whoot!

    Second, thanks for the shout out to my blog. Yes, I love directing folks to your blog as I find many interesting posts here and I want others to enjoy your writing and thoughts about metalwork.

    Third, the topics I enjoy most are the progress posts because I enjoy watching the creative process unfold (may be a pun in there somewhere???). For me seeing a piece go from the drawing board to finished work, well, that’s just plain fascinating.

    Keep up the great work Wendy as you embark on year number 4! 🙂


  2. Wendy –
    Congrats on the Big THREE! I have to say thanks because your blog was one of the first few I read on a regular basis while I was playing with jewelry – before I took up the silversmithing and developed a hammer fetish.

    AND it was your blog, that made me want to start my own, so an even BIGGER THANKS.

    Someday, we will meet and probably have a great time trading stories.


  3. I know I’m late to the party, but HAPPY BLOGOVERSARY!!! I’m honored to be included in your “Top 10″ list,” and I wholly concur with everything Kathleen said.

    I seriously need to get back over here and catch up–I keep saying I’m going to commit to making my “Monday Morning Blog Rounds” on a weekly basis, where I read/comment on the current posts of my top five-to-ten faves, but I haven’t had a chance. Soon, though, and I’m looking forward to catching up and seeing what you’ve been up to–that book=>DROOL!!! ;-D

    XO, and keep up the excellent work!!!


    1. Tamra,
      Thanks and I’m glad to see you again! I know what you mean. I finally went through a bunch of blogs feeds and found that some of them have disappeared. You have a good idea to make time each week to check in.
