Still plugging along on the Ribby Cardi's first sleeve. At the decreases - man, I love decreasing. This part of the sleeve goes so fast. Hopefully I will have a finished cardi soon. Who am I kidding? I haven't felt like knitting lately, but feeling more optimistic that the end of this cardi is near. I really just need something to wear between the spring and summer. That is my motivation, plus I want to start on some summer tanks. Three in fact. Two chickamis and another strappy kind of tank.
I have also been thinking about bloglines. It is a pretty great service, saves lots of time as you only need to read the blogs in bold which indicates there are recent updates. But, as there is always a but, some blogs have more subscribers than others, and by a significant number too. Take WendyKnits - she has some 800 plus, holy cow!
Some have over a hundred subscribers and only been blogging for less than 6 months. How do these sites, which are fairly new to blogland have so many readers and get so much traffic? Why? Maybe these individuals comment on so many blogs, therefore their blog url is, well, just out there more. I guess if I commented more, I would have more than 12 subscribers, but I don't feel like commenting on every single blog. I have nothing to say to most of their posts. Plus, I hate having to repeat what other people have already said.
I read their post, and usually only comment if the subject hits close to home, or they have a nice finshed object to share and I want to compliment them.
I ask myself, why I continue to blog. I guess I like to have my FOs documented and share them, but I don't blog to try and get as many readers as possible. I guess that is why I don't blog every single day, just to make an entry. Just thinking out loud folks.
Have a good one.
