Checking In...

... Oh dear, my little blog is being a bit neglected just lately. Apart from the book and film reviews, I don't seem to be finding much time to write any posts. In fact, at the time that I'm writing this I've got my settings on private, because I didn't think there was much point having it 'out there' when I wasn't saying a lot. Although, of course, if you're reading this, I must have changed them back to public ;-)

I've started using Instagram lately. I signed up to it a couple of years ago, but I hadn't really used it much. I'm now trying to use it more regularly, mainly just for crochet-related things. A few of the bloggers who I follow, who used to post quite prolifically, have migrated to Instagram, stating that they find it so much easier than writing a blog post and uploading photos, and I'm beginning to understand what they mean. I've really enjoyed writing my blog over the years, and as I saw other bloggers moving away from it, I always thought "nope, not me, I'll keep blogging". But now? Hmm, I don't know...

Although I'm still not posting very often on Instagram, I'm trying to get into the habit, and I can definitely see the appeal of it. But where does that leave my blog?

I could just have a break, I guess, but if I did that and then came back to it, I think I'd always regret those missing weeks or months where I hadn't blogged. And I probably would want to come back to it at some point.

I suppose I could just carry on as I have been, but maybe try to at least use some of my IG photos and do, say, a monthly catch-up post relating to whatever I've been up to on Instagram.

Last year, I started another blog, Hooky Hare, which was going to be all about my crochet, but I haven't been updating that either. Having two blogs is a bit tricky to keep up with, especially because I also want to mention my crochet on this one, so there is quite a lot of cross-over.

I did wonder if I should just call it a day with this blog, and start afresh on Hooky Hare? I really don't know how I feel about ending this blog though. It doesn't seem right to just stop, part-way through the year - I feel like I should wait till the end of the year, or something like that, a more appropriate time to wind it down. And if I moved to HH, would it just end up the same as this blog? Or would I stick to mainly yarn/crochet-related chat, and leave out more of the personal news?

So as you can see, I'm having a bit of a bloggy dilemma, and I just wanted to put my thoughts down here.

We'll see what happens...
