Hmmmm..................part 2

In looking at the stats further for my blog, I've found that at the moment most of the referring URL's are coming through my website......maybe it's time to shut it down since I haven't had time to maintain it like I should for several years now.

Shutting it down would translate into about a $15 savings per month, but on the other hand it would mean I'd need to find somewhere to put the patterns that are listed for free on the website.   I could create a page for my blog to use to link to them, but need to think about where to put the actual files.   On the other hand, all of those patterns were created years ago and I'm not sure if anyone is even downloading/using them anymore.  

Maybe I should first do a survey to see if anyone is even interested in the patterns before doing all the work to perhaps update the patterns and then move them somewhere else.   If no one is interested in the patterns anymore, then I don't see much point in doing the work that it would require.

Lots to think about, and the way things are going decisions need to be made.  What do you, my readers, think?


1.  Finally have something to do here at work.

2.  It looks like work may be settling out a bit and I may have plenty to do.

I could put them on my website, but a lot f people use dropbox or google docs. I used to use google docs when I was doing embroidery pattern BOM. I'll find that link for you. Your own website, yes, I can see how that could wind up being an issue!

I love old patterns....so interesting to see how things change and how they are still the same.
