Rock Hill, SC (PRWEB) December 31, 2008
Even as the economy weighs heavy on many minds this holiday season, for some 300,000 readers of Susanne Myers' popular website, Hillbilly Housewife.com (http://www.hillbillyhousewife.com), life goes on. For this audience the important things in life aren't costly. Spending time with family, making meals and crafts at home are just some of the ideas and tips that keep readers coming back to this site. This comfy address on the web is also the home of one of the best online "readership" driven website awards programs. This month HillbillyHousewife.com is pleased to announce that readers have chosen Ravelry.com as the winner of the HillbillyHousewife.com Best Crafting Website Award.
With over 250,000 users, Ravelry.com is one of the most popular and resource laden sites for those whose craft of choice involves yarn. Described as a community for knitters, crocheters, spinners and dyers, this site is a clearinghouse of information on patterns, user modifications, knitting event gatherings, competitions and so much more.
"So many people love to knit because of the joy in creating such beautiful items and the appreciation that is felt by those on the receiving end. Ravelry.com is more than a source for patterns and tips -- it's a community where conversation and relationships are built around the love of a craft. My readers relate to that. The HillbillyHousewife.com site is a community of people who love sharing tips for frugal living, good home cooking and much loved American family traditions," explains Susanne Myers.
"One of the benefits of the HillbillyHousewife.com Best Website Awards is that it offers an alternative to endless searches on Google, MSN or Yahoo for the kind of exceptional, quality conscious, family friendly websites many consumers with family needs are looking for today," adds Myers.
According to the guidelines of the HillbillyHousewife.com awards program, each month readers have an opportunity to suggest websites for that month's pre-determined topic (e.g. crafting). Once the list of website contenders is developed, readers are then given a chance to visit the suggested sites before voting on their favorite site for that topic and month.
Topics to be awarded during the year ahead include: December - Christian Family/Parenting; January - Frugal Shopping/Saving Money; February - Cooking/Recipes; March - Parenting Sites; April - Gardening; May - Home Organization; June - Homeschooling; July - Personal Blogs; August - Family Sites.
