I’m first going to vent my frustrations for Blogger….

There…. I feel better.
The problem with Blogger, which usually works flawlessly for me, is that the blogs I subscribe to are not showing the most recent activity. I can go to the “manage” button; however, that just lists the blogs. I have to go through every one to see if any new posts have been made – and let me tell you, that is a chore! The normal place where the recent activity shows basically says I’m not subscribed to anyone, which is pure malarky.
So – with that said… if I regularly comment on your blog and I haven’t in the last 3 or 4 days – this is the reason why. I do try to go through the manage list, but I genuinely don’t have time some days to look at every subscription. I’m trying though! I got through about half of it this morning and I’m hoping to have some time later tonight, provided I finish my paper.
This last week has been pretty exciting for me as far as crochet goes. I have a stack of dishcloths ready for donation and I’m on an all out quest to find the 2012 Special Olympic scarf colors (which will most likely end in me ordering it online).
On top of this, I have written my first pattern to be put up for sale. It is currently with testers and I’m waiting to hear back from them to see if any corrections need to be made. A couple have responded with great suggestions. The whole process is exciting. It is new and different and genuinely makes me want to do it again.
I am looking forward to writing my final paper for the semester tonight. This will free up some time which I can split between fitness and crochet. I am thinking I will use this summer to become a certified crochet instructor.
Question for Readers:
1. Are you a member of CGOA? What has been your experience?
2. Are you a certified crochet instructor?
