Tags: This Blog is Self-Referential
I’m so upset. I’ve been lurking on the DeStash blog since I found out about it and I’ve even bought something through it. A gaping void has been torn in the knlogosphere!
I believe this will cause a power vacuum, and I see a piece of specific software taking its place that forces stronger posting standards and perhaps PayPal support. Maybe Ravelry can fill the gap?
Side note on Ravelry in which I eat my hat: Looks like hype is actually making Ravelry popular, which I had not expected. I thought that duplication would be a problem for blog owners and that people would get tired of the system after a while (I’ve seen it in the knitblog community before), but I was wrong. A few well-placed raves have gotten the knit community buzzing. I really like their needle-tracker, although it could be a bit faster. Remember Ravelry: ease of use first, extra functions second. Three whole clicks! And waiting between! Do I really need to comment on my needles?
