2016 NatCroMo Blog Tour
Indie dyers, spinners, and yarn company owners, you are invited to participate in Crochetville’s fourth annual blog tour in March 2016 in honor of National Crochet Month.
To participate, scroll down to the bottom of this page and select your preferred date. We suggest you do this as soon as possible to make sure you get a spot, as we can only accept 31 yarn companies. You will then have until January 31, 2016 to submit information and photos for a blog post to us.
In the past, we have exclusively focused on crochet designers. We are excited to expand the blog tour quite a bit for 2016. Every day of March 2016, the blog tour will feature individual posts promoting:
- 3 crochet designers
- 1 crochet-friendly LYS
- 1 yarn company
- 1 daily giveaway
Information We’ll Need from You
We will need you to provide us with up to 10 photos and a ready-to-publish blog post telling us all about your companies, your yarns, and why crocheters may want to consider your yarns for their next project.
We will use the following methods to promote the blog tour:
- Social media accounts: Blog, Facebook page (over 258,000 fans), our Facebook groups (Daily Dose of Fiber and National Crochet Month), Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram
- Press releases: To be sent to crochet publishers, yarn manufacturers, others in the crochet and fiber arts industry
We will ask you to promote your participation in the blog tour in similar ways. We will provide you with graphics and promotional templates that you can use if you wish.
