A Month in Blog Land

8 May 2007

I’ve been reflecting on my first month of blogging and I think I can say that I’ve enjoyed it.  I picked a dreadful month to start – loads of work and a 4 day Easter trip to Broken Hill (a 13+ hour drive each way) – so didn’t leave myself much time to blog, let alone to knit.

I’d like to have put up lots of photos but that’s more time-consuming than just writing and I’m not exactly a whiz with a camera or photo software.  I promise to put in more effort when I’ve a little more spare time (and a few items actually sewn up, with buttons).

I’ve really enjoyed getting on my soapbox about things and words that annoy me – it’s very therapeutic.  I’ve always been rather self-opinionated and love a good rant so this is a wonderful excuse.

I still find it extraordinary that people I don’t know read my blog and am fascinated by those who find it, accidentally, via Google.  A lot of very disappointed knitters ended up with me when they were actually looking for dishcloth patterns, or instructions on making pompoms.

I got off to a great start, thanks to all my knitting friends who ‘advertised’ my presence on their own blogs.  People I didn’t know wrote to me.  And it’s said that strangers are just people you haven’t met yet.  I got some particularly touching feedback on the story about my father’s scarf and David Reidy kindly asked me to repeat it on his Sticks & String podcast.

So thank you all for your support and comments.  Thank you for welcoming me to your world.
