Hi all and thank you for reading this blog!
You may have noticed that there hasn’t been much new content here for about a year-and-a-half. Incidentally, that is how old my baby daughter is. You can draw your own conclusions 🙂 Despite this hiatus, The Dremel Amateur keeps welcoming visitors like you: In the first half of this year, the site has received 2600 views per month on average – that’s almost 90 per day. Most visitors come from the USA, but many other locales are also represented – just today there were also readers from Portugal, UK, Canada, Australia, Italy, South Africa and Latvia. These stats speak to the persistent global interest in the topics covered here.
While I fully intend to return to woodworking and blogging some time in the future, it feels wrong to let the site go stale in the meantime. From this blog’s inception, I had hoped that one day it might turn into more of a community than a single-person venture, and perhaps that time is now. So, if you would like to contribute your own stories of amateur Dremel-ing, crafting, DIYing etc., if you have tips and tricks to share, if you’d like to show off some of your handiwork – you are very welcome to join in!
Read on for details.
To get in touch, you can use the form below, or leave a comment under this or any other post. I will not share your info with anyone. Please let me know what topics you’d like to write about, what relevant experience you have (“none” is fine, enthusiasm is more important!), whether you are able to take and post photos, and anything else you feel like sharing. I am a good editor, so don’t be shy about your writing skills. If you’d like to contribute occasionally, email is probably fine; if you become a regular, I’ll set you up as a Contributor/Author/Editor to streamline the process.
In the interest of full disclosure, I point out that this blog is an Amazon.com affiliate. Over the past two years, it has earned about US$100/year from readers clicking on links – an amount too small to worry about splitting. I will be open to discussion should this change in any meaningful way.
