I read a lot of blogs though.


I've only recently 'discovered' blogs, a friend insisted I got an LJ one going, and you are right, the number of friends blogs there suddenly are to read is quite amazing. I've really enjoyed it though, I have a handful of friends I only see once a year or so, and having a chance to keep up to date with some of the things they are doing is lovely. I think I just bore people to tears with mine though, I usually only post there when I'm overtired and getting stressed about things, so they end up having to read about my latest crisis rather than my latest achievement

This one mainly, followed by ebay [also Multimap/Google Earth] & my site. Occasionally the Dexter, GOS & River Cottage forums too. The bank, Paypal & other sites to do with the business, like the council planning pages, CTS online, Government Gateway etc. And Google for anything I'm looking for that isn't already in my bookmarks.

But how on earth does anyone find the time to keep a blog going? And the material?
I fear I'd run out of both after little more than a couple of weeks. 'Nuf respeck for them as can is all I can say.

Mine is mainly about spinning, with a bit about me and a bit about the smallholding. It's just a journal of my progress and disasters really. It can take some effort and occasionally I don't post for a couple of weeks but mainly it's useful to me to chart what I'm doing.

The thing I like about knitting blogs is the obsession over balls of wool

I used to do here, RC and another couple religiously. Now I do here and check out the other two once a week if i am lucky. I could actually spend 24-7 on pc if it weren't for work, life etc and still run out of time to do everything. The interweb's a big place!
