This is a sincere effort to start writing regular – and more frequent – blog entries.
For as long as I’ve posted on this blog, I’ve thought about these posts as being mostly for my benefit. After all, I only have 49 official “followers”. That’s pitiful.
But, in my blogging absence, I’ve learned that there are folks out there who really miss my writings. (I’m sorta embarrassed to say that; it sounds so braggy.) I’ve been scolded by many folks at several of my teaching events this year. And last week, I even got an email from a reader who asked if all was well. She was worried about me! And she missed my blog entries.
I miss them too. I realize that they help me keep track of my travels, teaching, creating, writing, and living. Of course I regularly update my resume and my teaching schedule, but they are only lists of events. They don’t include any of the flavor, like catching up with old friends and making new ones, or the impulse buys, or charming gifts that I’ve received, or the number of times people say I look just like their aunt, or the events with terrific food (or not-so-terrific food).
Let me say in my defense that I’ve been doing a good amount of writing in the past few months, just not on my blog. I now have a regular column in Spin-Off magazine, “Ask a Spinning Teacher”. Cool, right? (Oh, if you want to ask a question, send it to firstname.lastname@example.org with “Ask a Spinning Teacher” in the subject line.)
And just to let you know, I do post bits and pieces on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/amy.tyler.125). You are welcome to join me there. Everything I post is “public”. My posts of course include fiber, but also dance, art, creativity, puns, and how much I love living in Michigan.
