I ran across this line in the "about me" blurb on Alex Soojung-Kim Pang's Relevant History blog:
"Being an historian and a futurist might seem contradictory, but they're not. Both use the same intellectual instruments, just pointed in different directions."
Clearly I'm going to end up having to consider having more than one blog going. While I chose "threaded thoughts" because it alludes to the kinds of multi-stranded thinking I do, I did really intend this to be a largely knitting-oriented site. Knitting is a passion. But so is technology, mobility, postmodern theory, and on and on and on...
So, I'm trying to decide if I need to segregate... will knitters still come back if not every post involves knits and purls? And will readers from the other avenues stop in (more than once) if many of the posts do involve knits and purls? I'm not sure.
Personally, I like reading multi-layered, multi-textured blogs that may have some central and recurring theme but touch on many other hotspots of thought as well. What matters to me is good voice, good writing, and engaging thought.
But, I'm not sure that's the prevailing attitude. Thoughts?
