New Directions, rolodexing, googlizing, organizing

So, as I mentioned, I want to add more dimensions to my blog. In some respects, these are already things I include in some posts, but now they will be organized in a way that makes it easier to find them again, and it puts some of these bits and pieces into unified "themes".

In a few years when anthropologists start studying bloggers (who am i kidding, we know someone is already turning the study of bloggers into a dissertation), I want to fit into the category of "reference blogs". Of course this is just in addition to be a knitting blog! My mom always taught me that knowing a bit of information is great, but even better is knowing where to find the information when you need it. SO, with that in mind, here's an update to the way things are changing:

When I'm online, I come across so many great ideas/resources/tutorials/destinations that I want to find again in the future, but that I also think are good enough to share with other people.

Example #1 - here's a blog that is also a pottery shop in the Bay Area:

places [to shop]:: Fourth and Clay
And I'm going to label this post "places [to shop]", so if you (or I) are ever looking for something, we can just refer to the lists of posts with shopping.

And Example #2 - here's a blog post with a great tutorial:

links [knitting] - for an afterthought pocket from NovaMade

It's sort of silly explaining this in a post, but I thought that it's also fun to share the organization. So - if you ever come across something cool, you can leave it in the comments and I can add it to the list of links!

I hope you enjoy the changes*
