What to do?

They say you have to play to your audience. I'm not sure who mine is yet. In fact, so far I have two lovely ladies that have decided to follow me, even before I've started.

I'm not sure what to show people. Do I explain every last detail, or assume that my audience knows most of the details? Do I tell what each tool does and how to set it up, or just assume that everyone who reads this will know that?

I suppose I will have to let my followers guide me, and let me know what they would like to see. Tomorrow I will just jump in with a project.

  1. Julie... I'm assuming you've read other blogs. My first few blogs were posts of projects from a while back. I took pictures of early stuff, but I had no idea I would be blogging about them. In my opinion most of us know the ins and outs. Some bloggers go into lots of details, others hit the high points. Perhaps you could start out somewhere in between. If you leave out details, people won't hesitate to ask you questions. If you go into details, people who already know how tools work will skim over those details.
    That's my 2 cents. I look forward to you posting a project!

  2. Thanks so much, Gail. Yes, I have read your blogs and quite a few others, but haven't really found any that do the step by step instructions from rough wood to finished. I had hoped to post today but got busy and then realized I needed many more photos or no one would have a clue what I was talking about, so I will try for tomorrow!

I appreciate all your comments, they keep me blogging! I like to personally reply to each comment I receive but many of you are "no-reply commenters" which means your email address is not connected to your comment. If that is the case I cannot directly reply, sorry.
