Sandra, who stepped out of my cyber world and into my real world last Saturday at the 'Frolic' has been blogging for awhile now. As have I. It's common when two bloggers get together to talk about blogging. My conversation with Sandra revolved around the evolution of blogging and bloggers.
The conclusion was that Knitting Blogs are past their heyday. They no longer hold the monoply on the cyber-speak world of knitters talking to knitters. What with twitter, flickr and ravelry, blogging barely clings to third place. But, both Sandra and I, either stuck in ruts, living in the past, slow to adapt to change, hoping for a return to the glory days or all of the above, remain faithful to our blogs. Both of us are on ravelry but neither of us twitter.
One piece of evidence I put forth, to show the lessening interest in Knitting Blogs, was the absence of the self-promoting, 'Blogger Awards' in March of this year. (Horrors. I presume that is a true statement and not simply a case of no awards for Brenda). Either way, I was left without an official opportunity to tell you of both my new and perennial favourites this year.
