My blog

ME AND MY BLOG





Hello my dear friends, how are you all, hope doing fine...
Time passes and change of weather is appeared slowly...

Spring ... next most beautiful time, 
is not very far now.
Wish you all 
HAPPY COMING SPRING TIME

I don't know what to say today for my new post.
I am not feeling well from last some days, 
a serious muscular pain in my back is redistricted me
to sit on computer...
Doctor advised me Diathermy for four days,
hopefully after that I will feel more better.

And I am sorry to my dear friends that 
I could'nt visit their new  projects properly 
and cant share my opinions with you...
I am sorry for that...
So what to do for today's post ???
A big question...

Last week
Gail @My Repurposed Life 
and 
Megan DVD @ Beauty in the Attempt 
were hosting a party for your blog reviewed by your visitor.
It was such an interesting one and
an opportunity to have  open suggestion, critiques,  
opinions on your blog, which can be so much useful 
for a redo, and beautification for your blog
but because of some personal affairs I missed it...
And truly I am sad about missing it...

So why don't directly I go to my friends and asked them 
about my blog...
I want to know what you think about an overall appearance
of the blog...

OK, I asked you questions one by one

#1. What is your opinion about a general appearance of blog





#2. What do you say about the blog button?


#3. About writing... do you feel its easy to read ?

#4. The colour of the page... does it gives you a feminine touch?


#5. What do you think that I have more focused on tutorial 
instead of general topics?


#6 . Do you completely understand what I want to tell you
or what I am trying to teach you?


#7 . What do you think do my normally tutorials are easy to make 
and can be used in normal home decor or they are
bit difficult?


#8 . I have some posts about my country;s beautiful places,
some about our traditions and dressings and
I also share the recipes of taste from my country
Do you like it to know about this part of the world 
and do you feel it was interesting?


#9 . Is it easy for you to search my older post or roam on my blog?

#10.  Someone suggest me that I should off 
the verification code option, because it can increase the comment rate. 
What do you say is it really irritating sometime?
#11 . I love to have your suggestions for anything... What is your advice for the betterment of my blog.
 
# 12 . The last and most important question is ...
Do you feel my blog interesting?



I think its enough for me to sit that much long on the chair,

it again start aching now.
So I want to leave now with the hope that all of you like 
to comment, suggest, critique , just to make it 
more interesting and with a feeling that you are helping me
to be a more better and useful blog.

Keep me in your prayers


HAPPY BLOGGING

I am so sorry to hear that you are not well...I hope you recover very soon...I will pray!
About your blog...it is very prettily laid out...very feminine. I think your tutorials are very clear and easy to read and understand.
I would love to know more about your country. One of my favourite posts here was your post on all those lovely lakes and valleys in the mountains..I had never seen these before! Amazing.

Hi Farah, I hope you feel better very soon. I think you blog looks fantastic to be honest. I like the layout, easy to read, and it really is very reflective of you.

Biljana said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

Your blog looks beautiful.
I wish you recover very soon!
Get well, hugs Biljana

Kristel said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

I truly hope You feel better soon.
Now about the questions:
1. General appearance. General appearance is what first draws your eye if it is not easy to understand/easy to work with you can lose visitors. Yours is extremely attractive. It's not just the flowers that are pretty but also the texture. Please don't change that!!!
2. Blog button is nice as well.
3. Writing. It is easy to read. English is not first language to me either and I have no problem fallowing your instructions. Besides you have made it clear over and over that if anyone has any questions they can email you.
4. Color is very feminine. I truly think it is THE prettiest blog I have seen. At least I don't remember anything prettier. Appearance of the blog was first thing that drew me . And after that tutorials.
5. I just answered that. I love tutorials like that. And that includes recipes. I already did chicken lasagna and me and my hubby loved it. In fact he wants it soon again. (I had also planned to do the cookies but discovered that cardamom costs 15 dollars 26 grams and I was unable to find unsalted pistachios, so for not it fell out of our plans, but I'll look around for better deals). And as soon as I get materials I also want to do the dough flowers etc. So keep tutorials coming.
6. Understanding. 95% I do understand. I had some questions with making those pretty hats, but that is because sewing is not something I have done for so many years and it is my incompetence. When I start making them I'll just email you if I cant figure it out myself.
7. Everything is easy to make.
8. Your country and traditions were very interesting and I'm sure they were eye opening to all of us. Please keep them coming.
9. I think I noticed few links that did not work. If you go to All Posts on the left right, then start scrolling down, some of the links are not working, like fried egg laptop, Ribbon magic and there were few more.
10. Good suggestion. I don't think that anyone would mess with your blog to make it necessary.
11. Please keep tutorials and recipes and pictures of your home and your work coming.
12. Of course. Your blog is only handcrafting blog I fallow. The only other blog that I fallow is my favorite book author so overall fallowing blogs is a new thing for me.

I'll keep you in my thoughts!

I'm sorry to hear that your back is causing you pain. Hope it gets better soon. Regarding your blog...I think it is very feminine and reflects you. Your tutorials are very good. I love hearing about your country and seeing the beautiful landscape. Most of us in the US and other western countries will never have the chance to visit Pakistan, so your posts give us the opportunity enjoy it's beauty. Though our countries are different we all want the same thing...to live a beautiful life and to share it with our family and friends. Hope you feel better soon.

Farah Muzaffar said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

Thanks a lot to you friends...
@ Kristel... its so loving of you that you reply in such a detail thank you very much...
About cookies... salted pistachio is not a problem, you can use it... and about cardamom, if they are costly than you can use cardamom essence of two drops...
Yes I checked about the error you mention and you are right I will work on it as soon as I feel better... thanks a lot once again..
I don't have your e-mail Kristen,so I am replying you here only

Farah, I have always liked your blog from the first time I saw it. I did turn off the verification code on mine because I do find it annoying when I visit others. I have not had big issues with spammers on the blog so I don't worry about that as of yet. Perhaps I would feel different if I was bothered by them.
Overall your blog presentation is definitely feminine and easy to use. I always enjoy seeing your projects, and the tutorials on how to make things. I think it's wonderful the things you've shared about your country and it's always enjoyable to see family pictures! I see no reason for any real changes.

Hi Farah, I'm so sorry that you are not feeling well. I spend a lot of time on FB, but not much time on blogs. I only stopped by because I wanted to show my daughter the beautiful wedding dresses. It took me a little while to find them through the link on the left side, but I think that's because I'm not very familiar with blog layouts. What I enjoy most about your blog is learning about the customs and traditions of your beautiful country. I am praying for your speedy recovery!

#8. This blog is about you: your food, your hobbies, your country... Yes, I love to know you and what sorrounds you. Thanks for showing us your part of the world! Hugggsss!! Get well soon! :-)

Bella said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

Hi Farah,
I am so sorry you are feeling down, get well soon!
This is a really interesting post!
The appearance of your blog is really beautiful, unique and I love the dainty flowers!
I find the writing very clear and easy.
The lovely soft colors are soothing :-)
I like that you do a lot of tutorials, they really are "your thing" you do a great job!! Very easy to understand and great photos. You feature fun crafts lots of them I have never seen done before.
One of the things I have come to love most about blogging is seeing other peoples countries, customs and perspectives on life! I believe we are very lucky to have these friendships around the world!!
Your blog is easy to look around at and very well laid out.
Yes, I think it's best to turn off word verification, it's kind of annoying :-)
You do a wonderful job being you! It is ALWAYS a pleasure to visit!!
Feel better soon!
Hugs,
Bella

Oh Farah,
I am so sorry about your back! I hope you get some relief from the pain soo. I feel so bad about this. I know it can be hard to function with the pain.

As far as you blog design...I love it! I also enjoy learning new ways to craft and you certainly have the best tutorials. Very easy to follow your instructions. I always understand what you are trying to teach, whether it is a recipe or a design, or craft. I have also enjoyed learning more about you and your lovely country and the love you have for it. I love learning about different cultures, traditions, people, and places.It makes us feel more connected and more like friends and sisters. I have loved getting to know you.
In all... I love your blog just as it is. It is beautiful and light and cheery. Always a wonderful place to visit.
I took the comment verification off of my blog, just for the convenience for others. I haven't had any more spam than when I had it enabled, so that was a good choice for me.
sending hugs to you...

Despite my English is not very god, I can easily read your postings. I just love it as it is and please, don't change so much on it. Take care of yourself and take a break. Meanwhile you will get a lot of new ideas. Wish you soon recovery.
Hugs, Johanna

Radka said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

Hallo Farah! I am very sorry to hear that you are not well, I hope it will get sorted out soon:))
I like coming back to your blog. It is very nice as it is. I like to read about your part of the world and about the crafts, mainly embroideries. I don't always have time to read too much text, so the very long posts don't work for me, but you also show so many beautiful pictures, which also make your blog so interesting.
Get well soon!

Hi Farah!

I'm sorry you're not feeling well, and I truly hope you're feeling all better very soon. I know how awful back pain can be. :(

In regards to your blog. Just two words...It's perfect!

I love it's soft feminine look. The delicate floral designs are so beautiful....You're always so welcoming, and you have such a sweet way of writing...your posts are always interesting, whether you're sharing a beautiful creation you've made, a yummy recipe or showing us peeks of your lovely country. I'm always drawn right in.

I wouldn't change a thing!!!!

SavannahGranny said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

Farah, You have one of the most beautiful blogs around. I love everything about it. I would only change one thing. Word verification. It doesn't stop me from leaving a comment for you but it may stop many. I know it can be aggravating.
I am simply amazed at your talent for creating almost anything. Your crafts are elegant and unique. You tutorials are very easy to understand.
My favorite thing is getting to know you, Farah. You have such a beautiful spirit and soul. I am honored to have found your blog.
I especially like the wonderful blogs about your country. I had no idea there were so many beautiful lakes and mountains. I wish I could travel there but I can through your beautiful posts.
Just keep being Farah. I am so sorry that you are in pain. My prayer is for your speedy recovery from the pain and that you will be up any about very soon.
Thank you for your friendship.
Love, Ginger

Hello,
First get well soon.. :-)
I loveeee your blog.. I like everything about it, the design as well as posts.. you never know what's coming next and beautiful pictures you post are mesmerizing..
But there is honestly one thing I would like to say.. though we all like to surf for blogs around of our interest but you have to many links to other blogs..
1. In the header you have linkies
2. You have blogroll
3. You have images on the left sidebar to blogs too..

So, you should first remove the blogroll and keep all the fellow friends in the header by the name linkies or whatever you like..

Secondly, put pictures of your best projects in the sidebar in this way new people will get a more finer picture of how much creativity you have on CraftAWorld.. :-)

Best of Luck
And Love
Hani

Hello Farah!
I just want to say that I love your blog and I think it is beautiful. Your header and overall design is really great. I love your tabs too. I am thinking of doing tabs as well and I love how you have done yours.
I think you share wonderful lessons with us. Good projects.
It would be hard to say how to improve when it is already so good!

I definetly want to hear about your home and country! I think that is very special. You are very special, and that comes through on your posts. I am sorry you have not been feeling well and I hope th

If there were one thing, I would have to suggest is to improve your photographs. Increase the size of your photos as well as the clarity. One of the hardest things is to get good quality light. I am working on this too. But larger, the clearer and the well lit photos for projects make a big difference.
Hugs to you, and thank you for being here.
Terri

Hello Farah! I am sorry to hear about your back and I hope you are feeling better soon!
I think your blog is gorgeous - such beautiful colors and flowers, it is lovely and very feminine. I find your writing very clear and easy to understand. The tutorials you post are so fun to read and you always have very nice pictures to demonstrate the steps. You really feature helpful projects for beautiful things for the home.

Colleen @ MuralMaker&More said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

Oh, Farah! I'm so sorry to hear about your back. I have the same issue (car accident 3 years ago). Sometimes I even set the timer so I don't sit for too long. I hope you feel better soon. I've never heard of diathermy . . . sounds interesting!

Your blog is just as sweet as you are. I think it is a wonderful representation of your beautiful work. I wouldn't change a thing! I'd also love to read more about your country, culture and food. I love blogging for that very thing. Even in my country - it's so large, and it's nice to read about people on the other side of the country where I've never visited.

Take care, dear friend. Hope you feel better soon!

Hi Farah :) I'm Amy from chich chick sewing... I think your blog is informative and beautiful. I imagine that you are a very talented crafter and a graceful lady. Keep up the wonderful work!!

Tina Peterson said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

Hi Farah - I hope your back is feeling better. I sprained mine over 10 years ago and I still ache pretty bad at times but I go to a chiropractor and use heat a lot to help with the pain.

I love your blog. It's colorful, informative and cheerful. I haven't looked very much yet - but I did want you to know. I do like tutorials and I also enjoy learning about the culture and customs of other countries. So please continue sharing with us.

I just changed the look of my blog at: http://givingnsharing.blogspot.com. It still needs a little work but unfortunately my focus has been on my Literacy blog and so it isn't getting as much attention these days.

I look forward to reading more.
