I’d Like To Think I’ll Remember The Blog

1 Comment

Truthfully, I’m not feeling the allure of the blog anymore.  I used look forward to posting photos and writing a little something about what was going on.  Introducing new patterns here was exciting and everyone loves a good rabbit photo.  Now, I post those things to Facebook and Instagram and I write less and less.  The interaction through blogs changed.  It used to be a rather vibrant community with people commenting and reading and sharing.  Then Ravelry came along and it’s better in many ways, but I do miss the personal touch of reading someone’s blog and seeing what else is going on in their life.  I’m not a big fan of forums.  I don’t like the way they are structured and how it’s hard to follow a thread of thought.

I suppose I could just do vlog entries like some people have taken to, but I mostly don’t feel very “put together” of a day.  So I don’t really want to take a video of me bra-less in my pajamas with my hair in a bun.  I work at home now and the impetus to dress nicely with make-up and jewelry and shoes has mostly gone out the window.  So I’m in a bit of a conundrum.  I don’t listen to podcasts (does more than 1% of the knitting population do that?).  So I don’t really want to start a podcast.  I suppose I could continue to post to the blog occasionally as I already do.  It has become more of a log of my activities any more. When I remember to add them.  So.  Almost 11 years on and I’m trying to decide if I want to keep going.

One thought on “I’d Like To Think I’ll Remember The Blog

  1. Ah, Bunny Girl, decisions, decisions.

    I cannot answer for anyone but myself, but yes, I do love your witty picture of life in Missouri. Or adventures in Oregon. Or the occasional sighting nowadays of The Sock Hunter.

    You nailed the current face of the knitting community: blogs and podcasts are sadly fading out. Sigh.

    I find the other social media pale in comparison to the wonderful creative world of blogging.

    You will choose wisely, as you know what you need to do. But if you listen closely, a small voice in Indiana is saying “Oh, please don’t go!”
