Blogging 101: Rediscovering Lost Blogging

I don’t normally follow craft or fashion blogs, but something about Wanna Be Sewing Something caught my eye.  I read Najah’s post, How to Return to Blogging with a Vengeance, several times before commenting.  It seems that, like me, she had a long hiatus from blogging due to a new family addition, and like me, she’s working to…
