Basically

{photo by Z-cakes}

Here's what's been happening lately when I sit down to blog. I log in to blogger. I write a title. I write a couple of sentences. I erase them. I write new sentences. I erase them. I write three sentences in a row that are all related to each other. I take a break to sing the intro song to Super Why! with Z-cakes. I reread the sentences. I hate the sentences. I wonder if I have a picture to post. I realize I don't. I decide that I don't feel like blogging. I close the laptop. I knit.

Later in the day I post a picture on Instagram and decide that totally counts as blogging.

And that, my friends, is my in-depth explanation of why I haven't been blogging lately. It's pretty much the best I can do especially since I hate writing blogs about blogging. It feels redundant. Meta? And just downright awkward.

Whew. Glad that's out of the way. Now I can tell you that, no, I am not dead. I have not quit blogging. I don't know if I'll ever go back to blogging every day but I do know I'll be blogging more frequently. I don't have a blog series planned, no big ideas, no Friday features. Just me. And some Instagram pictures. And my family. And lots of narration.

So basically, I'm back. Get excited.

I hope you've been knitting something fantastic! Just looked at my blog, and I haven't posted since July 26. I think I'm done... Anyway - Instagram is giving me a complex. I clicked the link, and guess what popped up... "THE HECK IS WRONG WITH YOU? YOU SHOULD BE USING SAFARI, CHROME, OR FIREFOX" WTC?! And WHO are they to cast judgement on my browser...

Posting instagram photos totally counts as blogging

@Staci - as long as you're using the newest version of your browser (which I assume is IE), then you can continue to feel upset with instagram for harassing you. However, if you are using an older version - please upgrade. Older versions of IE make your computer more vulnerable to attack and will make the web significantly less fun :-)
