Another blog. Note the emphasis on another. Since I am once again attempting to start a blog, there are many puns which are now jostling for attention but quite frankly they can go away.
I’m not new to blogging. I’ve had several over the years. At my last reckoning I’ve been blogging on and off for the last decade. Although maybe the emphasis should be on the off. I’m not the most reliable blogger. Looking over the archives, there is a certain tendency to see posts entitled something along the lines of “Hello, and yes. I am still alive.” Not the most fascinating reading I’m sure.
So why give it another go? And why a new blog? Why not just reactivate an older one?
Well, things have changed. My focus and ambitions have altered somewhat. And the older blogs somehow seem embedded in the past, and well – I’m trying to move forward. Part of this step forward is a move (on a small level) into knitting and crochet design. I’m not saying this will be career, but it is something which interests me. And I’m enjoying the creativity of it. Plus I get to play with lots of computer programs in order to write and build the patterns. See? Fun. Well it is to me.
So. While I would like to blog more frequently, and I shall certainly try to, I cannot guarantee that I won’t revert to radio silence at some point. On the other hand, I think I can promise not to write exciting posts entitled “Hello, and yes. I am still alive.”
