If you attended the BlogHer panel on “The Art of Crafts” I promised to post up a list of craft blogs and sites that would help you get started. I read A LOT Of blogs so I’ve included a good variety of blogs that I read on a daily basis, but just know I couldn’t include everything. If you attended the conference and also have a craft blog, please feel free to add it in the comments to this post. Commenting on the site is free — you just need to sign up for an account through our parent site, O’Reilly here. Then make sure you are logged in via the top right link next to our Google search bar on craftzine.com. Then, feel free to add craftzine.com to your RSS reader, or sign up for our CRAFT daily emails (in the right hand side bar).
