When I first started this blog (back in the internet bronze ages in 2006), the photos I used were a lot smaller than the ones I use now. Just look at that comparison up there - the photos in the new version are almost twice the size! Yay!
I'm also adding a bigger watermark/copyright thingy to those tutorial photos (and probably some other photos too) - because on several occasions I've seen every single photo from a particular tutorial re-blogged (without permission!) on someone else's blog. Which is annoying to say the least - and what's even worse is that some of those people cut off the previous copyright thingy! Seriously, what the *bleep*?! Hopefully, the new style will be less easy to tamper with.
I am really on the fence about allowing pinning from my blog because a lot of Pinterest users don't seem to care much about whether their pins go back to the actual source of a photo. And I have other issues with Pinterest too, but that's not the point of this post. ;-)
Anyway. Once I've finished overhauling the tutorials (or most of them, atleast) I may enable pinning from the blog. This is not a promise, though! I'm still making my mind up. ;-)
The tutorials that have had a makeover so far: No foundation-chain crochet tutorial, crochet granny triangle tutorial, sewing machine mat. When I was redoing the sewing machine mat tutorial it reminded of a comment it got a little while after I'd posted it. It went something like "why would you bother making one when you can just buy a cheap place mat?" Isn't that the oddest comment? Oh well. ;-)
