How about that? Three years online and growing.
Most days, I feel like I’m writing for myself, a couple of out-of-state friends, and some former students who don’t have a LYS to take classes with me anymore. Then I’ll get some revelation that knocks me smack onto my tailfeathers. Like the new WordPress stat maps that show me readers in Japan and Russia and any number of other places it never occurred to me to think might be swooping by. (I get really tickled to see Internet searches in Greek.) I mean, it’s not like there are boundaries on the Internets. Or the random days where for no particular reason, several hundred people will drop by. I didn’t put a pie on the windowsill to cool or anything. But you come anyhow.
It’s all pretty nifty.
Especially the part where I tell you that I’m pretty sure that my family still doesn’t know I’m doing this. Or if they do, they’re not telling. And that’s okay, too.
I get the biggest kick out of seeing what you come here to find. Most often it’s the reviews of how different new yarns perform. If my experiences can help you decide whether one is right for you, so much the better.
Sadly, I won’t have spent the almost-blogiversary Saturday at the Connecticut Sheep and Wool Festival ~ celebrating its year 103 in 2012. My evil
employers captors have seen fit to incarcerate me at a mega-management program for the weekend. So have a slice of cake and some ice cream for me, won’t you?
revenge reward ~ will be to run away next week to an event I’ve never attended: the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival, MDSW for short. Bless Mr. Owl for telling me to buy the ticket and go. Bless Jen and Co. for welcoming me to the Booth Babes sisterhood. I promise to tell you all about it. You never know what will make it home in the suitcase that Southwest lets me check for free. (Kiss kiss to Southwest.)
Of course, it wouldn’t be a blogiversary if I didn’t celebrate with a contest and prizes. Put on your imaginary party hat and think back to what first brought you here. Tell me about it in the comments below. Or hold up your glass of bubbly and tell me something else. Lurkers: This is your cue to come on out! Contest closes Sunday, May 6 at 11:59 p.m. Winners to be drawn the old-fashioned way. Cheers!
