So, I’ve been thinking a lot about this blog, and have decided to just ask you guys straight out. You see, I’ve not been enjoying blogging all that much, and I’m pretty sure it’s mostly because there’s no real dialogue. I can post the same stuff on Ravelry and get responses, have a conversation, get opinions… but in a blog format, it’s more like standing on a soapbox and shouting, and people don’t seem to feel too keen on chiming in. I can totally understand. I don’t really comment much on blogs either, and they certainly don’t make it easy to respond to comments directly and get that kind of conversation going.
So, I’m not sure if it’s worth continuing. At least, not daily. I don’t have enough to say on a daily basis, and I’m starting to feel like I’m writing “what I did on my summer vacation” essays every day. I did this, then I did this, here is a photo, also I did this. Not exactly titillating commentary. So here’s my question to everyone reading this.
1. what makes you want to comment on a blog post?
2. do you enjoy reading daily posts even when they’re dull, or would you rather read occasional posts with real substance?
3. how dismayed would you be if I decided to drop the blog format and just post on facebook and ravelry?
4. what do you enjoy reading about? Do you only want knitting/spinning posts with lots of photos, or do you like hearing about my life events?
Speaking of which, Cory’s supposed to hear from the better job today, but I still haven’t heard anything. Oh well, as long as he has A job, I’m happy.
