Last Contest of the Month
I forgot to upload my photo for today's post this morning, and tonight is my night to work at the homeless shelter clinic, after which I'm usually pretty exhausted. So I made the executive decision to switch my planned posts for today and tomorrow. Pretend that it's actually tomorrow already, the last day of NaBloPoMo, and this will all make so much more sense . . .
First, a few reflections on NaBloPoMo: This has been fun, and way easier than I thought. Part of the easy is definitely that my work schedule this month has been very tolerable. That leads to much knitting. And much knitting means that there is much about which to blog. But part of it, too, is just being back into the swing of things. If you blog everyday, or even frequently, it's that much easier to blog the next day. The more you blog about, the more you have to say.
It's like talking to an old friend. If you haven't talked for a long time,
you stick to the big stuff. The FOs. The, oh, well, "I got married." You never
get around to that crazy dog sweater you saw on the street today. But when you
talk more frequently, you get all the details. On a knitting blog, this strikes
me as a good thing.
I'm not going to keep blogging every day, and I was pretty happy with my every-other-day schedule before, but I am not going to hestitate to post more often if I feel inspired. I have a tendency to let my blog slip out of "real time," to plan posts for too far ahead of when the actual knitting was. This month has helped me stay more current, on my own blog and others' blogs.
And then a follow-up from our last blogiversary contest, I have some unnannouced winners:
- Karen at Musings of a (Mostly) Self-Taught Knitter was the first to comment. And they always seem to get skipped over in contests.
- Liz at Fido Knits just about summed up what we often feel is our favorite project - our next one - Did I mention that I haven't started it yet, even though I am dying to do so? In my imagination, therefore, it is just challenging enough to be fun, but easy enough not to drive me crazy, and never boring.?
