I’ve toiled with this question every since I gave up Knit Knack several months back. I do enjoy blogging, but I also enjoy not blogging. Recently however I realized that a large portion of the reason I had disliked blogging was the internal pressures I put on myself. I had begun to feel like I had to finish things, just to show you – my readers – what I had done. But in fact, finishing projects and starting new projects has nothing to do with you. It has to do with me, and that is what I had forgotten. That knitting and spinning, and craftin in general, even writing, is for me, not for you. Not that I don’t appreciate the people who stop by and read my blog, but I had to remember that if it had become a pressure, it was no longer enjoyable and was sucking the fun out of my crafts.
So I quit. But I did miss it. I missed keeping a journal of my projects and sharing pictures of my animals. I missed writing. Although my writing had become rather dull and mundane. That however was because I stopped putting thought into my blog, because I was forcing myself to blog on a daily basis. I don’t need to blog on a daily basis. I don’t need to write everything down every day. But I do enjoy writing, and telling people about what I’m doing.
So as a way to keep connected with my family and friends, I decided to start this little blog again. Now I just have to remember to share the address with my family and friends. I just started this, this evening, and thus if you read this in the next 24 hours, or the next 240 hours, you’ll see many many changes and updates and personalizations.
So stay tuned and I’ll let you know how it goes.
