I think I, like many of my blogging friends, am bored with my blog. It doesn’t help that my knitting monogamy lately has kept posts to a minimum, since 10 more lines on the same project just isn’t that exciting to blog about. It doesn’t help that I sometimes work on things that I can’t blog because it might be a gift and the recipient might read this. It doesn’t help that I’ve been too burnt lately to post about things that aren’t knitting related.
I’ve been blogging for quite awhile. In fact, just a couple of weeks ago I let my 4th Blogiversary completely go by, uncelebrated. I completely forgot about it. That’s ennui to the highest order.
And like others who have perhaps been bored with their blogs, I don’t really want to stop blogging. This blog has brought so many wonderful things, so many nice people into my life. I wouldn’t ever want to lose that.
So I think maybe I just need to shake things up a bit. I’ve been considering migrating to another blogging system and with that, I have a redesign in my mind. I know my project gallery sure needs a whole lot of updating. And maybe a fresh face will give me renewed interest. Actual work will probably get in the way so I don’t expect this to happen overnight. But look to this page for changes in the coming weeks. And maybe some actual knitting.
For a brief update on things around here: Alice now has a sleeve in progress, Ty had a bath and looks very white and fluffy, I walked the Central Park loop with Jenn this weekend for the first time in ages and I think being more active in general is going to really wake me up. One can only hope.

a redesign sounds like just the ticket! i can’t wait to see what you come up with!

p.s. i myself keep that ‘blog birthday’ shit on the QT anyway. how many bdays does one person need to celebrate. really.

whenever i feel bored with my blog i give it a facelift or do some sort of enhancements to it. it really gets me back in the swing of things.

if you’re looking to change blog software entirely you should check out Typo. it’s pretty darn cool.

Me too! Me too! I would miss you though if you left.

I heartily recommend the redesign route – not that yours isn’t already one of the swankiest sites around. It definitely gave me a lift when I did mine, though. (Which reminds me, I have a lot of work left to do…) You make a good point about the paradox of knitting monogamy, though – good for the discipline and actual finishing of projects; bad for the blog content. Just know that I’ll come visit and see your latest ten rows any time!

cant wait to see the redesign I am sure it will be fabbo.
as for the rest who says that you have to go through your ennui at the “right” time. sometimes it comes in spring.
Laisse les bon temps rouler! And do it your way :)

A Ty picture is always good for defeating ennui.

Just sayin’.
