Revamping the Blog

Clearly, something must be done. The posts are getting shorter and farther between. No one is reading them, including me. They are more short news updates than anything else. I’m putting my foot down. I promised it wouldn’t get to this point, and by golly, I meant it. So I’m increasing my scope, broadening my horizons, whatever you want to call it. Here goes.

It is becoming clearer daily that writing solely about knitting and spinning does not give quite enough material for a blog. With my full-time student status, friends, boyfriend, etc., I don’t have the time to devote to my craft that I’d like, and therefore do not have the goods about which to write. So I started to brainstorm. What else could I write about? What is interesting, fun, and will provide enough substance to fill out my sadly lacking blog? And then my brilliant roommate, in her infinite wisdom, got it. Being a college student. Better yet, a college student living in Bankus Hall at Champlain College. The shenanigans we get into up here are worthy of our own tv show – they would be perfect for writing about on a blog for all the world to see and ridicule!

So, the idea is here, and now, after a lot of soul-searching, I have also learned something about myself: I need structure. I obviously can’t handle writing a blog post whenever the heck I feel like it (have you seen some of the posts lately? Pretty pathetic), and so have decided to put some restrictions on myself. There will be a new post up every Saturday by the end of the day. We’ll start at one per week, and see how it goes.

Ok, I think that does it for now. See you next week!

P.S. Quick Knit for Those in Need update: I got word yesterday that there is a 99.9% chance of my budget being approved and everything moving forward! More updates soon I hope. 🙂
