Wonderful Wednesday - Top 100 Quilting Blogs You Must Follow in 2021?!?!

Welcome to another edition of Wonderful Wednesday!!  Have YOU seen this list?  I'm awestruck.  I have no idea how this happened or if it actually means anything.  (Rest assured, I did NOT nominate myself!)

Here's the email I received and nearly deleted without reading:

Hi There,

My name is Anuj Agarwal, I'm the Founder of Feedspot.

I would like to personally congratulate you as your blog The Joyful Quilter has been selected by our panelist as one of the Top 100 Quilting Blogs on the web.

I personally give you a high-five and want to thank you for your contribution to this world. This is the most comprehensive list of Top 100 Quilting Blogs on the internet and I'm honored to have you as part of this!

We'd be grateful if you can help us spread the word by briefly mentioning about the Top 100 Quilting Blogs list in any of your upcoming post.

Please let me know.


PS: Upgrade to Feedspot Pro to add an additional 100 character description for your blog and brand in the list.

Once I actually read the email, I was curious about the list.  I played it safe and DID NOT click on any of the links in the email!!!  Instead, I googled the list, clicked over, and started scrolling.

Imagine my surprise...

... When I got halfway down the list, which reads like a who's who of movers and shakers in the quilt world, I was shocked at what I saw:

While it might just be a marketing ploy, I certainly was pleased to be placed in such good company!  I'm number 41 on the list right beneath Christina Cameli.

What?!?!  How is that even possible???  

That prompted me to follow a path to see if what additional information could be found:

Thank you to my awesome readers, for choosing my blog as a place that you like to hang out.  I'm honored that you spend a portion of your day reading what I have to say.  (I'm still not quite sure what to make of the list.)

Until next time...
Color me AMAZED!!!


  1. Well, this is quite the honor, Joy! You certainly deserve it with your creativity and time working on what brings you and your readers joy! I, too, would think this might be a scam with links that would lead to harm. Enjoy your time on Cloud Nine...hooray!

  2. Wow! That is SEW awesome, Joy! Congrats!

  3. The skeptic in me would definitely think it was a scam. I know these lists have been around for a while, but I haven't checked them out. I already follow so many blogs, I don't have time for any more.

  4. WooHoo! I already knew you were awesome; now everyone knows!!! Congratulations! ~Jeanne

  5. but you are a doer that is why! Well served.

  6. Congrats!!! There's always a lot of quilt fun going on here!!!

  7. Congratulations, Joy!!! You write great posts and I'm happy that you are receiving recognition!

  8. Congratulations! My list would be different, but you would definitely be on it!

  9. Wow! That's is so AWESOME! Congratulations! You deserve it. ;^)

  10. Congrats that is fantastic!! So I clicked on the link to go see all on the list...and what the heck I am number 50!!! I never got an email saying my blog was chosen like you did!

  11. Congratulations! I had an email exactly like that but didn't actually look into it. I thought it was a solicitation for a substitute of feed burner since it is going away. I did make the list. WOW! I am in good company with so many others. :)
