Its all true, the boogie girl is real, and you've found her. She knits, sews, spins, does pottery and writes it all down in this blog.

A few of you just left at seeing that title. I think it's interesting how large a part pictures play in blogs. The pictures don't need to be great, but they need to be there. Is it more important to the blog reader or the blogger to have photos?
As a blog reader I like to see photos of projects. It's not ciritical, though. When I happen upon a new blog I read the first couple of entries regardless of photos. I won't say pictures aren't important, I do really like seeing them, it's just that some blogs are going to be interesting even without photos.
As a blogger I have to have photos. I feel naked without them and no one needs to be seeing me naked. I'll still post without them, obviously, but I'd rather have them.
This is a huge switch for me. I've never been a photobug. You might be able to tell because of the poor pictures that I do take. I have 8 rolls of film sitting in a baggie. 5 of them have been there 4 years or more. So even when I do take pictures, I don't bother with them much after that. I'm too busy living and enjoying the happenings to always remember to take pictures. Still, I take far more pictures now than I ever have.
Simply put, my kids are going to have very little evidence of their childhood but I'll have great pictures of the yarn and knitwear I made at that time!
Now that I've been blathering about photos I should let you know that I'm not getting "deep". Hell no, I'm still the same shallow Boogie gal. This post has been brought to you by my photo editing software deciding to go to hell. Or wherever else photo editing software goes to die.
I'm spending any spare time I have today, trying to figure out where to get free editing software or if I can make use with whatever came with the computer.
