Well, ok, maybe it’s not entirely shameless, but it’s certainly self promotion. I recently set up a WordPress blog for my wife. She’s an avid knitter, and she enjoys creating color-work charts. Of course, getting the site to show up on “the Google” for the keywords we want isn’t exactly an easy task. It takes the right content, the right keywords, popularity, links and probably quite a bit of dumb luck. The experts call that stuff SEO, or Search Engine Optimization. As a web developer, I call it a necessary pain in the neck. Anyway, visit it here at Free Knitting, Crochet, Needlepoint and Cross-Stitch Charts for Charity, and help us out. Thanks!
We’re also trying to be conscious of the fact that just taking any old picture and converting it into a chart is likely to infringe on the copyright of the original image, so all of the original images come from public-domain sources. Since I gave myself a plug, I’ll do the same for the sites we got the images from because they are… well… plain awesome. openclipart.org and pdclipart.org are both wonderful sources of public domain images. They also both make a good faith effort to ensure the images are truly in the public domain.
