Crafting Community: Where to Share and Find DIYs
It's the power of sharing, discovery, and community that brought me to blogging. I'll always be making, blog or not, but the desire for finding a community in the craft and DIY niche drove me to start and grow Thanks, I Made It. But this ain't your Memaw's sewing circle-- there are so many ways now to learn and share a love of crafting. So, where do you find new tutorials or share your own DIYs?
In my quest to uncover the craftiness of the Internet universe, I often get tired of the ol' Craftgawker and Pinterest feedback loop, which seems to repeat a lot of the same content and can feel really trendy or seasonal. While there are treasures to be found on both sites, and can do great things for you if you're a blogger, there are many alternatives to build community and find and share original DIYs. Here's a short list to get you started, and please, post any others you know of in the comments!
