Pay it Forward- Support Bloggers Who Provide Free Content

I just read a blog post by Pam at Gingerbreadsnowflake and how she plans to support bloggers who provide free content online; by providing patterns, recipes, how-to's, etc. Once a month even if it's a small amount, buy something from their shop. Support INDY and free content bloggers, so that they can keep providing that content. Being an independent artist myself, I think this is a great idea. Forget the department stores and buy from each other, and we'd all be getting more creative items, plus supporting people who put a lot of effort into getting information out there on how to do so many things ourselves. Thanks for sharing this idea, Pam!

I'm starting this off myself by buying some yarn at the Burien Yarn Stash . They have comfy couches and chairs to drop in and knit anytime without a charge. Bonnie is always helpful when someone is working on a project and willing to offer ideas. They have some free patterns on their website.  Beware, though, it's hard to go in and only buy a bit of yarn!

Let me know if you decide to join in on supporting INDY artists and bloggers who provide fee content by buying something from someone once a month; it could be $5 or $10, but would mean so much to these people. Please share in the comments if you want to join in!


  1. Thank you! What a lovely "find" this morning - to see that you are spreading the word and making a commitment to support this lovely community of bloggers who provide free content almost daily and also INDY shop owners.

    If we all just, as you said, did a little bit each month to support eachother, it would go a long way - really.

    Again Thank you soooo much.

  2. Thank you! I think it's a great idea!

  3. Hello Dyhanaverse, :-D

    Nice post about joining this great online project.
    I just discovered your blog and I really like your posts about sustainability and urban farming as this is a subject close to my hearth.

    Thanks for contributing to online sustainability, as well! :-D

  4. Thank you!

    It's March, I'll have to come up with my next blogger support :)
