Is anyone out there?
I started this blog in January of last year. I had grand plans of having a blog schedule where I would post all kinds of amazing, informative content. I was thinking of building my little Etsy shop back up and having the blog as a place to grow a community.
But that did not happen. I haven't added anything to my Etsy shop in a year, and I honestly don't know if I will. I enjoy knitting for myself and the people I choose. I have realized that I am not a fan of knitting the same thing over and over. I don't even like to make two pairs of vanilla socks too close together. I kept up a decent posting schedule for a couple of months, but then dropped off.
Then I started podcasting. I first started watching podcasts early in 2016 and in the summer started my own, and I think that's more my thing than blogging. I love talking to people and connecting, and there's something about video podcasts that makes you feel like you know someone better than reading their words.
But lately, I've had the urge to blog again. I don't know what I will write about, or how often, or how long this kick will last. Right now I'm taking a semester off from school (I'm transferring schools and didn't finish everything in time to start this semester because procrastination), so I have more time to knit and talk about knitting.
Maybe I will go into more detail about some projects and yarns than I do on my podcast. Maybe I'll start up my interview series again (you can go through my archives to read about some of the amazing people I did interviews with). Maybe I'll share some knitting tips, although I am certainly not an expert in anything.
I don't know if anyone will read these posts. Do people even read blogs anymore? I don't know, but I do know that I miss writing. I love podcasting, but I do enjoy sharing my thoughts in written form as well. I don't know what kind of blogger I am. I don't have an exciting life; I don't have a farm; I'm not that funny; I'm not a designer.
But I am me, and that is enough. I'm growing and changing and want to use this little space as a way to document my creative journey, so that a few years from now I can look back and see how I have grown. I don't need to try and be anyone but me.
