New blogs

Some newish Aussie bloggers More than Words, Girl on a Scooter, Taylor Street, Oh Sew Pretty (not so new but lovely), Nikki-Shell and Littlemunki, and a new crafty blogger from Chicago, Trudesign (lovely banner design).

Crafty behaviour has been happening at Craftapalooza this week. I’m finally recovering from a flu, taken me 3 long weeks. I’m one of those never get sick people, so this is giving me the willies. I’ve been making some kitties one which is my blog birthday gift, one for me and another for a friend. I’ve also finished knitting a cabled beanie, pics to come.

I succumbed to the new Denise Schmidt book and it is lovely. In depth instructions and some great ideas, makes quilt making look achievable. I particularly like the Steves as does Amanda!

Perth Bloggers

Last night Chris and I attended the Perth Blog Nite. There were 8 (I think) speaks and one “guest chief”. Thank goodness there was one female perspective. I may be misleading you, but I also think Charles Wooley was in the audience, otherwise it was his twin. Interesting stuff, “institutionalising blogging”, corporate blogging (google Sun Microsystems Blogs and you’ll be surprised by what you find) and a little politics thrown in for giggles (and MORE).

The highlight being Anthony’s half time (entertainment) sushi making whilst fielding questions and gesturing with a knife in his hand. The man is passionate about food, interesting blog too. Check it out.

Overall well organised event, organised enough for me to consider becoming more involved, tho’ often (well this is my reason) bloogers start because of the perceived anonymity. I do find face-to-face interaction in a group of people I don’t know intimidating. Or maybe it’s to do with still feeling uncomfortable at times that my blog isn’t intellectual enough or gritty.

For any of you Perth bloggers out there, there is a Christmas Bowling night. Keep your eyes on the Perth Blog site.
