boys and blogs

boys and blogs
i'm so excited to share this post with you!!!!

Five years ago, when I started this blog I never would have dreamed to find an audience outside of a few friends and fellow knitters but it has blossomed into so much more than a place to share my finished knits.

I struggled for years with finding my voice; a boy's voice in a girl's world. At least ninety-eight percent of my readers are ladies, and while I love you all, I can't help but feel a little lonely sometimes.

However. lately I've been having a bro-mance every week!!!! There's a new group of boybloggers that I actually relate to, and I look forward to seeing their posts pop up on Bloglovin'.

First, we have Colby. Colby was the first boy to visit my re-vamped Knitxcore blog, and I've been following him ever since. He's a whiz at makes rooms look pretty and taking fantastic photos!

Second, there's Raynor. He's crochets the cutest lil' babes and has really good taste in music.

Third is Reuben. He's half of the House of Humble. He knits and gardens and makes things. The coolest bro.

And finally, there's Steven. He is a web design genius. His layout changes constantly. He always has great tips for bloggers!

I hope that you enjoy these boy blogs as much as I do!


Coming up...

-A Work in Progress: Bird Mask.

-Vintage Halloween Inspiration

-Fabric Pumpkins

-Punching (ANOTHER) Rug.

-and maybe a finished sock?

...Stay Tuned!!!!

Yeah, I always wonder why it's such a female thing to blog. My dad's a huge blogger but like about Russian news, not fun things. IDK It's interesting. But I love when I find great boy-written blogs (hem hem) ;D
