HappyBerry has Joined the Flock!

I was so excited this morning to realise I have been accepted into the awesome new blogger ambassador programme from LoveCrafts, that I just had to share its awesomeness with you all!

I've worked with a few companies over the years as a crochet designer, but none so amazing and kind as the team at LoveKnitting and LoveCrochet. Since late 2014, the lovely people at LoveKnitting and LoveCrochet have been so amazingly supportive of what I do. From the very beginning of me joining their team of indie designers they were there for me to help promote my work, and support me at a time when EU tax rules were causing great concern with online digital pattern sellers. They literally swooped in amongst all the chaos and worry, with a great virtual cushion and said, "hey, it's all going to be ok", and it was. Since then they have been a valued support network for me, from promoting my work, to supporting me with the growth of my profile, and of course helping me see my pattern sales grow. I am now blessed enough to be offered yarn support and new products to review and play with.

I feel so honoured to be apart of something so exciting and fun! And I can't wait to see what the future brings. But you can get involved too!

So what is the Flock?

The LoveKnitting and LoveCrochet teams have been working tirelessly to continue building a cozy home for us knitters and crocheters, and they wanted to build the blogger ambassador programmer to recognise what us bloggers do for the yarny community. They wanted to create a community where we can come together and share ideas, collaborate on projects and review products, as well as have some fun along the way!

So how does it work?

The LoveCraft teams are way more than just an online yarn shop. They are real people who actually care about what you do, and what you bring to the crafting community, and the Flock is about developing you and your blog. As a Flock member your content will be featured regularly on their websites and social media channels and you'll be kept up to date with all the latest collaboration opportunities to help you connect with your fellow makers!

Here are just a few of the rather cool benefits you can expect and be involved in as a blogging ambassador;

I have a blog, and I want to join I hear you cry!

If this all sounds amazing for your blogging future, then you can easily express an interest in joining by signing up here. Once the LoveKnitting and LoveCrochet teams know you're keen, they'll pop over to your blog and take a look at what you do. If your blog looks like the kind of thing their makers will love then you will automatically become a VIP blogger and member of the Flock. Once fully immersed in the flocky goodness you will receive their latest updates, collaborations and content opportunities before anyone else and you can start to enjoy the benefits listed above.
