I have been thinking about this today as I wander on line. I belong to 26 teams (I think) on Etsy and most now offer up their blog accounts and facebook/twitter etc. Of course, everyone wants followers- I do.
I have found some very nice blogs of others that have my talent and more. Some that make similar to me. Some I can take general ideas and other ways to do the same thing away with me, As they can with mine.
I tend not to follow those at all. Great minds DO think alike.. But I do not want to be accused of copying someone else's work. ( and that does work both ways, I do know) There are seriously only so many quilt and sewing ideas out there. In my wanderings I have found many who offer up very close to what I also make and sell. I shy right away from their blogs/shops.
And really, I am sure they have wonderful thoughts to share. I try so hard to be original and not use commercial patterns and be true to myself etc, etc. So, this is my quandary- To Follow or Not? What do you think??? What do you do?
