B is for Blogging
I have been a blogger since 2006. What first drew me to blogging was all the cool knit bloggers I was keeping up with and becoming friends with through sites like Knitter's Review. I thought, why not? I also thought it was a good way to keep track of the things I have knitted. As time went by, many knit bloggers began to find it difficult to keep up with their blog because of their day to day life was becoming more hectic. It was around that time, when my blog began evolving. I started to feel as though this wasn't just a forum to share the latest pair of socks or lace shawl that I had just completed. I began to feel like it was time to let the true side of me come out which I did but it happened to be at a time when my life was beginning to bottom out.
During that year of bottoming out and life just hitting me with blow after blow, blogging helped me through it all. Blogging about all those experiences also left me with a place to go to remember how bad life had gotten (who wants to remember that?) but at least I have it written down so I can say that those awful things did happen to me.
Blogging is also a place where I have made many wonderful friends. I have also seen lots of amazing stuff! So keep it coming, people. :)
