I suddenly realized that I hadn’t heard from M&J Trimming in a while. I mean, they had a nice blog, where they mentioned other blogs, and I got to get out and explore places I had never heard of, and learn new ideas, and post them here.
Yesterday, I saw an email from M&J Trimming, but when I opened it, it was about a “pay to join” monthly club, to receive project kits every month. Not my style.
I wrote to M&J and asked where my blog announcements had gone and they told me I should subscribe (duh! I think the word is RE subscribe)
I re-subscribed, and I do hope that they will keep up the interesting information that they used to have. (If they don’t, I promise 2 things – I will write back to them, and I will tell you about it)
I don’t mind that M&J are looking for new revenue sources, but I do find it annoying when they discontinue a community source which was very useful to folks out here in the real world, and, I would think, also, very potentially remunerative, in that people reading the ideas posted on the blog, particularly folks living away from major fashion areas (like NYC) might be highly likely to browse M&J’s offerings online and actually purchase items mentioned on the blog.
If the blog is no longer available to the hoi-poloi” (as in: those of us who cannot lay about miscellaneous cash for projects we might not be interested in), the loss will be felt around the world (I am often in contact with folks who have read about M&J via the blog, and want more information about it and how to get there, seeing as I am in NYC and have physical access to this wonderful store.
