« Spring Flowers | Main | Why I Read Blogs »



Interesting reflections - I'm not sure I ever gave it that much thought. I agree about the commenting thing, though. Sometimes I just don't have the time or inclination to comment, although I always like it when people leave me comments. Lately I've been on a commenting jag, and it makes me (and my blog) feel more connected to the whole blogging-ness.


I think that sounds like the reasons that we all blog. I think because knitting isn't something you can really work on as a group. You can knit with others while they knit, but you're not working on the same, specific, item. However, with blogging, it's a way to connect with all those other people that knit too. If I didn't have the knit blog, I'd only have one other person that I know to talk to about it, to really understand it, and to help me. Knit blog land is such a great way to make a solo thing a social thing. And ofcourse there's all those social things behind it. I'm like you though, sometimes you don't feel like going to the party, but sometimes you go anyway, most of the times you have fun, but sometimes you just don't have it in you. You don't have to justify those days, just let us know you're alive =)


Hey Tam, thanks for the great post. Very interesting read. I think you touched on things that many bloggers feel. I know I agree with all of the statements that you said. For me, blogging is also a small "digital scrapbook" of my life and events. This seems to go hand-in-hand with my library studies: keeping organized and archiving life events in the form of a blog. It is a great community, and there is so much to learn from it.

Thank you for the thoughtful post. I enjoy your blog very much, and I am sorry that I don't always comment! Forgive me!

Best wishes,


Sorry for not commenting more, Tam. I've been reading your blog for quite a while now and it's been great seeing your knitting progress. Isn't it time to take the "beginner babe" off ;-)
