Is The Paragraph Dead?

Last Monday, Whistlepeaknits posted on her blog, in list format. She comments about the format, at the closing of the post, saying that apparently paragraphs intimidate her.

Being a lover of lists -
This week's list

and today's list.
I liked the format.

It never occurred to me, though, that 'whistlepeaknits' was on to something; Ahead of her times; leader of the pack; trendsetter, as it were.

Then, sel&poivre wrote in list format. Hmmm, that could be a coincidence. After all, lists are clear, concise and easy to read.

But, Tuesday, when the Queen of all things blogging and knitting posted in list form, I began to suspect the paragraph was dead.

Not to be left behind, I give you my paragraph-free blog.

* All five pieces of Nimbus are finished.

*Only the right front needs to be re-knit. I forgot the buttonhole.

*The collar needs to be knit.

*All pieces need to be blocked.

*All pieces need to sewn together.

*I think my slow progress on the easy-to-knit, bulky-yarn, Nimbus spring jacket is holding back the warm weather. The knitting gods must want me to be able to wear it at least once before the weather warms up. My apologies to all knitters everywhere who are sick of the cold damp spring.

*On the 'merry widow' home front I am down to slovenly behaviour patterns; Dishes not done; bed not made; clothes not picked up. I am turning into my husband.

I do the same thing when the husband is away - I live for myself. Then I clean up before he gets home so he doesn't think it's okay for HIM to do that.
And stop delaying summer willya? I'm tired of the damp...
