First post – don’t make fun.

23 04 2007

Can you believe it? I jumped onto the ultimate bandwagon and started my own blog. Oh my god. For some reason this terrifies me. I’m not an overly private person, by any means, so the “sharing” portion isn’t what scares me. I mean I’ll tell anyone anything. Just ask the guy sitting next to me on the plane. Any plane. I just don’t like to put myself in situations where I could potentially be made fun of. How lame is that? (This is why I don’t dance, people. Yet I will sing embarrassing amounts of karaoke until 2 am. I don’t get it either.) I like second opinions, rough drafts, and spell check. I need validation. Instantly. Wonder if no one reads this? Or worse, wonder if they do?

I should start with an introduction. My name is Tracey. I’m a 30-something aspiring knitter living in St. Paul, MN with my future husband, future step-daughter and two dogs. We have a lot going on this year. We’re building a house in Eagan, MN which will be competed mid-late September. I cannot tell you how excited this makes me. Some additional exciting (and should probably precede the new house but I’m going chronologically) news is that we’re getting married here on Oct. 20, and then having a reception here on Oct. 27. That doesn’t leave a lot of time for knitting, does it?

I recently got back into knitting and am completely obsessed this time around. I think the internet feeds that. There are so many knitters out there. And so many of you have blogs. If it hadn’t been for that community I don’t think you’d be reading this today. Actually, I know you wouldn’t. I want to be a part of that community. You’ll have me, won’t you?

It terrified me too at first but once you get the hang of it (which it looks like you have) then it is really no big deal. I really like the theme you picked out too! Looks great!

Way to go! I think it is a great thing that you took the plunge despite your fear. And no, it’s not silly or stupid. I think it’s very common and putting yourself “out there” is no small thing. You go, girl!
