Wow! It has been a while!
March of 2013
Not to make excuses, but....what had happened was.......
In December of 2013 I finished my last holiday knitted item, put down my needles and have not picked them back up. Through all the pleas for this item or that item I have quietly and firmly refused to knit anything.
I just couldn't find the urge to pick those needles back up again. I don't know what happened. Guess it was just time for a break.
Before all of that happened tho, I was blogging. Posting little things here and there about knitting and patterns and basic b.s. and the more I blogged, the more worried I became about if anyone was reading my blog, wondered why I couldn't get my numbers up. Hell I even tried giving stuff away and couldn't get any more than half a dozen views a day.
And for some reason, this bothered me. Me! A forty-seven year old knitter, accomplished at cooking, knitting,pattern writing, data entry at my local t.v. station, wife, mother, MiMi and an all around generally liked person.
Yes me, I was worried about why no one was interested in my blog, what could I do to spice it up, why couldn't I get anyone to want to read all my gibberish, and worst of all, why the hell couldn't I even give away anything for free!
Believe it or not, it bothered me enough to just stop blogging. If no one wanted to see my blog, why put it out there?
Then, a year and a half later, I had an epiphany!
This isn't your blog! It's mine, all mine. I can bitch, whine, laugh, cry, eat Cheetos on the couch, whatever I decided I wanted to do on MY blog.
You don't have to read it, it's no longer for you that I write it.
I am taking my blog back, I will post what I want, when I want, and if I want to say DAMN! that was a good pattern, I will.
I would be thrilled for you to check it out and enjoy your time here, but if you don't..............it wasn't for you that I wrote it anyway.
Now the ironic thing about this whole message?
If no one is reading my blog, who am I writing this to?
