Starting anew

Have been overwhelmed recently by the number of places to go on the web…Google+, LSSK community, Ravelry, Facebook, Twitter, DLWG, TCEA, ISTE ning,  and my three emails.  There are also other online communities to which I belong that I gave up on long ago.  Some I join just to help others figure them out and then I move along.  In others I intend to be active but then new ones grab my attention and I’m off again.  It takes some time to get to know people and bouncing around different communities can make your head spin and feel like you don’t belong anywhere.

I laugh, though, because this is how I knit, how I read and how I stay in touch with friends.  I bounce like Tigger!  I rarely have less than three concurrent knitting projects that take varying degrees of concentration.  I read part of one fiction book, move to a non-fiction and then back again.

I read with envy those who stay the course in any given community and write amazingly insightful blogs.  So, my intention going forward is to continue to bounce but WITH intention.  I hope to make my blog my focus to pull together all the strings of thought and as in knitting, use the various strands to create something useful or beautiful or both.
