To Blog or Not to Blog?Posted: December 30, 2009
I’ve been lagging in posting about my knitting FOs these past few months, mostly because I’ve been thinking about whether I really want to continue blogging. When I started back in 2005, I had two reasons for blogging: to connect with a great knitting community, and to document my knitting. Well, things have changed a lot in five years. It seems to me that knitters don’t interact as much on blogs anymore, but are much more connected on Ravelry/Facebook/Twitter/Flickr. And with Ravelry, I already have a place to document and share my projects, so what purpose does the blog serve? I’m in this in-between place where I don’t see the point anymore, but I’m also not quite ready to let go yet. What are your thoughts on knitblogging?
Since I’ve decided to stay here for now, I figured I would do a series of posts to catch up on talking about my projects. I started writing about these socks on September 10, but didn’t get around to taking the photo until November 4! I’ve worn them a couple of times already and I love them. Madelinetosh sock yarn feels really comfy and sturdy, and brown and blue are one of my favorite color combos.
