Happy 6th blogiversary to me...
Well, this is the first time I've actually remembered to record the event. I'm crap with dates, ask anyone. This blog was not my first, but I decided to split it off from my personal one, which went elsewhere (where I could better control its audience) and then died a short, painless death. Well, who wants to read the whinges of a complete stranger online?! I've never been good at keeping a diary - too much obligation and not enough to say - but the odd post about my creative exploits, especially concerning the specific craft of machine knitting, I can manage.
Back in 2005 I was younger and more innocent, and the posts were short n' snappy. It's slightly surreal to read your own history online. Who was this person?! Me, of course, but do I recognise her? What would I tell her if I could talk to her today?
Probably something along the lines of, stop buying yarn, stop doing so much surfing/reading ABOUT machine knitting and get to your craft room, woman! :) Although sometimes surfing/reading is all I get time for.
I've met some lovely folk via "tinternet" (and via Ravelry/Yahoo) and I would miss the community enormously if I had to go completely offline for more than a week. My online presence can be sporadic at times (gotta work, gotta sleep) but I can't imagine a world without blogging now. So thankyou to my readers, you know who you are! And here's to another six years.
Now, anybody want to buy eleventeen sacks of acrylic yarn and a box of assorted doodads?!
