Weaving, living a life of a weaver, and other unravelling thoughts
by the Goddess of Procrastination and Expert Forgetter
I write in my blog to record my progress in my weaving adventure.And to help me remember when I wove things!
Hi Meg,I blog as a visual journal of my artmaking and my thoughts about that. I also like having an audience to be accountable to. This helps me to feel that I am not making art in a vacuum.Thanks for asking!Hugs.
Delurking...I blog so I can chronicle my progress and interact with others with similar interests. And, it's fun!
Hi, fiber artists and fiber nuts. I've been looking for something I wrote 18 months ago on this subject and haven't found it, (because I'm weaving - imagine that!) but I'll come back to this soon. I want to remind myself what I was thinking back then and to see what's changed. Today I'm in town all day - a supermarket tour (how to really read labels, difference between NZ and Australian labeling requirements, [because we have a lot of Oz imports]), going to the Council to ask them to interpret into English a form letter we got yesterday, then the art supply shop to get gesso and acrylic retardant, then the library for the Schiele book, and finally, a lecture on the color white at the Suter to end the day. Makes it sounds like Nelson is a metropolis, doesn't it? The main stretch of Trafalgar Street is about... five blocks; seven tops. I'll count this afternoon.
In fact I started out with more of a reflective purpose, but the memory thing has been a help many times... At lunch with friends on Tuesday someone asked me if I kept a journal. I said not really, but I keep a blog, and the good thing about it is that it is SEARCHABLE. But also I think the act of writing about something fixes it in my head more securely (even in the absence of search terms).
Cally, I suspected that the blurb at the end of your article wasn't the whole story, but I never thought of the search aspect. If I give my post intelligent titles and use the key words, I, too, would be able to search, won't I? Hadn't thought of that!
Thank you for taking the time to comment!
