InCoWriMo 2017

What the heck, you ask, is InCoWriMo? I asked the same thing and when I found out, I jumped in with both feet. InCoWriMo is short for International Correspondence Writing Month. The whole idea is to write one letter every day for an entire month. Thankfully, the month chosen is February, the shortest month.

Seeing as I’m already a member of Postcrossing, a worldwide post card exchange, and I love my fountain pens and am looking for any reason to use them, this is a natural progression. So far, I have 18 people slated to receive some kind of handwritten correspondence, some through Postcrossing, some through other forums I’m on.

Want to learn more? You can check out the web page here. Why not consider joining me? It doesn’t have to be a letter, per se, just correspondence of some kind… a letter, a note, a postcard… whatever. You just have to write one every day. You can mail it, you can hand deliver it, either way is fine.

And, honestly? Everyone loves getting mail that isn’t a bill.Don’t you? Would you like to get a letter/note from me? Email me your snail mail address at peridot1454 at gmail dot com and I’ll add you to my list. Or ask me for my address so you can send ME some snail mail.

Blogging is Fun!

I wish I could tell you there’s been knitting happening around here but, honestly, there hasn’t been much. Oh, a couple more rows have been added to the Metalouse shawl today but, other than that, nothing. Absolutely nothing. I haven’t even been looking at knitting patterns!

So, what have I been doing? Blogging.

Seriously, I’ve been blogging. Just not here. I’ve started two blogs this week, one of which is mine. The other is for a customer at work who really wants a web presence but hasn’t a clue where or how to start. So, I offered to help her. I’ve set up a blog as her business website. Now, I’ll have to teach her how to post, or at least maintain the blog. That shouldn’t be too difficult, I hope.

Please, feel free to check out Electrolysis by Cynthia (if for no other reason than to check out what I set up for her). If you feel so inclined, leave Cynthia a quick hello, a welcome to the world wide interwebs.

The second blog I started, the one for myself, is for prose. I’ve always had the urge to write but I really didn’t feel that this blog was the place to do it. This week, that urge to write was completely unavoidable and I finally did it. Started writing, that is. The blog is there to “put it out there”. I’m not sure how often I’ll write something but when I do, I’ll have a place to put it. Care to check it out? You can find out what’s Blowing Through My Mind.

I’ve also reincarnated my photo blog, Clicks ‘n Thingsagain switching over to WordPress and giving it an entirely new look. I’m hoping that by doing this, it will kick start the creative juices again. So far, I’ve been having a lot of fun going through my archives and finding some great pictures, some I’d completely forgotten about.

The important thing, I suppose, is that I’m having fun, enjoying myself immensely.

By the way, don’t forget to leave a comment on any of the posts on this blog to be entered to win the Metalouse shawl. Only 19 days left till the draw!
