Behind the Scenes

I found this on Saving Nine (By Saving Some Time)'s blog and I thought it was worth doing.

1. Why did you start your blog?
I started it to show my out of town family and friends my knitting.

2. How did you come up with your blog name?
Due to my lack of imagination...... Ariel's knitting

3. Do your friends and family know about your blog? What do they think of it?
I have a couple of non-knitting friends who read it and my sister. My hubby and my mom know about it but I don't think they ever read it.

4. How do you write posts?
Usually on my laptop at home. Sometimes at work.

5. Have you ever had a troll or had to delete unkind comments?
I've never had any unkind comments (thankfully) but I did find a very very long-winded something once. I deleted it. Is that a troll?

6. Do you check your stats? Do you care how many people read your blog? If you do care, how do you increase traffic?
I tried it once but since it didn't tell me who was reading I deleted it. I'd like to know how people found my blog and I would love to know who reads it and doesn't leave comments.

7. What kind of blogs/posts interest you?
Almost all of the blogs I read are knitting blogs. I love seeing what people are knitting and they inspire me to try new things. I do read a veggie recipe blog that has recipes for veggies from A to Z, and my cousin has an advice column blog that I keep an eye on.

8. What do you like and dislike about blogging?
I don't think that there's anything I dislike about blogging. What do I like about blogging...... everything. I love finding new knitting blogs. It's like an extended family. I love when someone leaves comments and then when someone I've never heard of leaves a comment I go check out their blog too. There's so much opportunity to find something new to do or just say "WOW, I want to do that someday."

I really enjoy seeing other parts of the world through other peoples eyes. I was never very good at geography but blogging helps me learn where everything is. I see a blog from someone in another part of the county (or world) and I look it up to see where it is.

If you decide to do this on your blog, please let me know so I can take a look.

I like reading your blog because it is great to see yarn turn into something, I don't knit so it always amazes me. I found your blog because I know you;)
