How many times have I written that?
I can answer that, countless times. Sometimes I kept it to myself and sometimes I posted here. Blogging used to be something that I did without even thinking. A couple of times each week I’d sit in front of my computer and I would just write. In the beginning I’m not sure anyone was reading. In the middle somewhere there was a fair amount of readers and now, I think we’re back to how it was in the beginning…. crickets….
I said, and I maintain, that when I write I do it for me. I’ve still been writing, I just really do it for me. I have gone back to paper and pen over the past year or so. Sometimes I write a few sentences and then sit there and think… When I think with a journal page in front of me, a lot of times it’s as if I’m writing a blog post. I’m always writing ‘to’ someone. It just happens that someone is usually little old me these days.
Recently I’ve gotten more questions about spinning, weaving and knitting. There’s been more interest in maybe hearing what I have to say. I answer the questions but it might be helpful to have a blog post to point to. There’s a few that I’ve done in the past that I readily point to and it would be nice to have a few more.
I suppose I feel like I need to be useful if I’m going to blog to the public again. I already write for myself, but to be public, I’d like it to have a purpose.
I know I’ve posted before and given a list of things I’d like to write about or sewing tutorials and what not I had planned to do. And then….I’ve never done them. This time, I’ve started writing a few posts already. I figure if I’ve got a couple of tutorials and posts already written, this might happen.
I’m going to click that button in the right hand corner that says “publish”. Next week, I’ll come back here and I’ll hit that button again on another post. It will be more than just a bunch of words but I can’t guarantee it will be a lot more than that.
