Future of Blocklotto.Com
I’ve been receiving emails which have told me (repeatedly!) that *I* need to say something about the future of the Block Lotto. Honestly, I thought I already did say something last summer when I said that I would not be doing this anymore and it was time for me to do something different.
I appreciate that there are those that would like to keep going–but as Cathy and Nann have let me (but maybe not you?) know–they will not be continuing to produce and manage the monthly activity … and have let me know that *I* need to say something (again).
If anyone else in the group would like to step up and take it on, I am happy to help and advise, but know that I have very limited time. As the core group of block lotto players has shrunk, my recommendation would be to move BACK to a free Blog platform. If you were around or have read the history, You might remember the driver for moving to this website was that we had more than 100 authors regularly posting blocks, more than our original blog (on blogger) would support. I don’t believe that is still the case.
As I said back in July, I have plans to do something different and this blog will soon cease to continue–I put it off until the end of the year and continued to financially support the site, so you would have time to transition. I *do* plan to maintain the gallery of wonderful quilts made from lotto blocks. And, I also plan to continue to provide some quilt content … along with other things that interest me. That said, it won’t be just a quilting blog, it won’t be a group blog, and while I’d be happy to support and promote such an effort–should someone want to continue–it won’t be the home for the monthly block lotto,
