I apologize for falling off the face of the earth. I kind of lost my blogging mojo at the end of last summer, then was really busy last fall, then my computer got kind of whacked out at the beginning of the winter. I spent most of the spring and summer being worried about the possibility of being laid-off, which resulted in a lack of knitting mojo. So all of that resulted in a good 14 or so months of no blogging. Its really easy to get out of the habit and start to feel too behind in posting to want to catch up. I just logged in to my Wordpress dashboard and Statcounter for the first time in a very long time and was amazed to find that people still have been visiting and posting a few comments even with no new content. That has provided some of the push I needed to start posting again.
The other push to start blogging again comes from the fact that my spring and summertime fears were realized this fall when my employer (an architecture firm) announced that it was closing. I have been officially unemployed for about a month, prospects for a new job are few and far between, and I have started to feel a little bit cut off from the world. My knitting mojo is back and I hope that a return to knit-blogging will help me feel more productive and connected with others.
There’s no way I’ll ever be able to catch up with everything I’ve done/knit in the past 14 months with blog posts, but at some point I will update my 2008 FOs tab up at the top of the page and create a 2009 tab. I am still on Ravelry (username: amy) and my project notebook has been kept fairly up to date if you want to see what I have been working on.
