This week I will be participating in a Back to Blogging challenge hosted by SITS girls for a chance to win an Electrolux Washer/Dryer set sponsored by Standards of Excellence, Westar Kitchen and Bath and Florida Builder Appliances.
Each day this week there will be a writing prompt, Today's is: The First Post you Ever Wrote.
Here is mine, posted on Jan 27, 2008:
Well, here I go feet first. Last year I taught myself how to knit. I knit two scarves. This year I want to finish at least 2 sweaters by hand and learn to Machine Knit. I may be taking on to much but you can't reach the moon unless you shoot for the stars, and I think I'm aiming for pluto. I figure as long as I can keep my artistic side stimulated, I should be able to keep moving forward. Ravelry is great so much inspiration, I just need to make it a point to set some time and take a peek at least once a day. Creating a blog seems to be a good way to hold myself accountable at least once a week. So off we go on this year's journey.
- I knew absolutely nothing about blogging. And I don't think I was thinking that at some point I would want to grow it - definitely was not thinking to keep track of Analytics nor did I have SEO on my mind (which I still don't fully understand). I started as a simple write a paragraph or two about a goal that was made. I have yet to even start knitting the two sweaters I designed - They are designed the are patterned and swatched but still haven't casted on. I did knit a skirt! And a lot of scarves and purses. It was fun to see some of the old posts.
