Blogging and knitting

Jill/txt, in searching for a metaphor to describe why people might blog, settled upon blogging as knitting, a metaphor I rather like.
""Blogging is about doing just a little each day, and building something over time," I say in the interview, "rather like crocheting or knitting." You can follow a pattern or make up your own, you can talk about what you're making with your friends, and the level of ambition can be as high or low as you like. Sometimes your creations won't please you and you'll unravel them or just hide them in a cupboard. Other times you'll be surprised at how beautiful it turned out."

I should really put down the vacation yarn and pick up the science and education yarn a bit more often, but that will happen soon, as the semester starts up in a few weeks. In fact, Thursday was my first day back in the office, so the reality of the approaching semester is already settling in.
