As this blog nears its 3 year anniversary, the time has come to review some of the accomplishments that have taken place.
1) Needlepointland.com has organically grown from having zero viewers daily to consistently averaging in the mid hundreds of views per day, with hundreds of unique visitors.
2) Needlepointland.com published nearly 2 thousand original quality pics and galleries of hand-painted needlepoint canvases by a variety of artists.
3) Needlepointland.com has pioneered a number of delivery vehicles for needlepoint-related content, including video stitch guides set to music, animated canvases, advanced multi-part tutorials,and flippable needlepoint catalogs — which in less than a week have accumulated 390 reads, 2,258 impressions, and an average of 2:07 read time per viewer.
With the establishment of Needlepoint Land as a brick and mortar, the time has come to take the next step in the evolution of the Needlepoint Land brand.
With this in mind, I am instituting a new sign-up policy that will become a requirement for viewing content on Needlepointland.com. I have already made this change at http://needlepointlandstore.wordpress.com/. In order to view that site, you now have to become a member of WordPress.com, and request access from me.
In a few days, this shall also become the policy at needlepointland.com.
What this means, practically, is that this flagship blog shall now transition to a by-invitation-only blog. My hope is that this level of interaction with my readers shall enable me to even further customize the content and merchandise displays to suit the taste and interests of my readers, whom I of course always hope will think of Needlepoint Land when it comes to purchasing handpainted needlepoint canvases.
In addition to having to become a WP member, you will also be asked to provide an email address in order to have the ability to access certain content areas that shall remain password protected — such as upcoming new catalogs.
If you have any questions regarding this new policy, please do not hesitate to email me at the non machine readable email provided in the What We Do menu option, or simply comment below.
I look forward to your continued interest in Needlepointland.com.
