Well, here we are again. A fresh new look and a fresh start for the blog — both of which are long overdue, seeing as how the previous incarnation hadn’t been touched in a little over a year. Not to say that I haven’t been up to anything; I’ve been working on a spinning* challenge since January that takes up most of my evenings and my time during the day belongs mostly to my boys. It’s more a matter of losing a bit of the gusto that I used to have for writing (in general, really, not just blog posts).
There are a handful of people who have been around long enough to attest to the fact that I’m a bit of a flighty blogger to begin with. I’ve had Livejournals, Deadjournals, and single-page-manually-updated-HTML blogs integrated into ridiculously busy personal domains; and for the most part, they tend to be short lived. (The one exception ended up being the Livejournal, though, it ultimately ended up a dumping ground for memes with very little in the way of actual content.)
I’m setting a goal for myself this time around to try and blog twice a month. I’m not going to apply any stringent focus as far as content, if only for the reason that stringent content and topic adherence are generally the things that doom my blogs in the first place. I’m far too mercurial for that.
So! Although the name of the domain (and the blog) is ‘erinknits’, it won’t be restricted to knitting. I imagine there will be some focus on spinning*, photography and cooking, with some unsurprising tangents into motherhood and how-not-to-eat-your-babies, but who knows where we’ll end up. I’ll roll with it and we’ll see how it goes.
