It's all very interesting, even for someone with a little knitting blog and a readership of abt 10. This suits me fine, since I didn't start this blog to get as big as, say, The Yarn Harlot (who, BTW, I LOVE). I started this blog to have a place to share my love of knitting. Of course I'm more than a couple of sticks and some string so I also post abt my other hobbies of stitching and quilting; my other loves of family (including my crazy cats) and the occasional garden and food picture.
Speaking of cats, there was a cute little paragraph in this book that I have to share.
- The nature of weblogs changed as they started to be used as a platform for personal publishing, as much as a filter for other web pages. Content was as varied in size, shape and kind as their authors. Apart from the personal diaries, bloggers have used the the form to analyze and critique mainstream news stories (can you believe Sanjaya lasted on American Idol for so long?) and media (I wish they'd stop playing so many repeats of Grey's Anatomy), publish expert opinion on topics in which they specialize (Regia vs Lorna's Laces), as a soap box for their political views (Rosie vs Elizabeth) and as a place for essays about the quirky, lovable behavior of their pets - particularly cats.
And apparently this is very true by all the blogs that I read that include pictures of their cats. Including this one.
I will continue with my personal insights as I progress in the study of said manuscript. (see how handy a thesaurus can be?!?)
"..particularly [ADORABLE] cats."
