Hello everyone. I am taking part in the Grow Your Blog promotion that I came across on the 2 Bags Full blog.
My name is Una and I live in London, England. I have a hectic life and value my hobby time. I used to have a gardening blog but ran out of things to say about my postage stamp size garden. I enjoyed blogging and missed the social side of it. So when I took up knitting recently, I saw an opportunity to start blogging again.
I created my Great Balls of Wool blog in December 2012. It was really just intended to be a record of my knitting projects. But I secretly hoped that other people would see it and leave comments. I have had quite a few comments already. You will be relieved to know that, even though I moderate comments, I don't require people to complete those annoying captcha boxes. I always read and publish comments really quickly.
My computer skills range from basic to average. I used one of the Blogger templates and changed it around a little. I'm especially proud of the photo that I took of balls of wool.
I saw a blog where someone recommended Picmonkey as a free photo editing website. In just a few minutes I managed to turn my photo into a good heading for my blog. It cheers me up every time I see it and I just want to stroke the wool. Eventually, of course, I will use up this wool and the photo will bring back memories of whatever I make.
In my blog I concentrate on describing whatever knitting (and maybe crochet) projects I am currently working on. I have been amazed at the statistics provided by Blogger. According to them I have had 848 page views from visitors in the UK, USA, Canada, Germany, New Zealand, Spain, France, Greece, Guatemala, and Kuwait. Considering I only started my blog last month, I find that very inspiring.
I love reading other blogs on craft topics and have already chosen some to follow. I have been really impressed by the variety of blog designs and content. I am looking forward to discovering more great blogs very soon.
Thank you for reading...
