Hi readers…remember me? It's Jojo…however I now feel as though my blog has been improperly labeled as my "yearofjojo" has turned into more like "every-few-weeks-of-jojo". I feel like I keep apologizing for not keeping up with my posts on this personal blog and again I am sorry. I think I have lost my motivation to blog about my life and have instead found a new interest in blogging about my hobby and side "business"…knitting. I know I have talked a little about some of my projects over the past year and to check off one of the big items on my list of New Year's resolutions…I am starting up my Etsy.com shop Nellebean Knitting (pronounced like Jelly Bean). And to go along with the Etsy store, I have decided to start up a blog dedicated only to my knitting projects, although I might throw some other crafty stuff in just for kicks. Nellebeanknits.wordpress.com. I have spent a lot of time this weekend loading in some posts on the new blog with pictures of my various projects from last year and I am so excited to add to it as the year progresses. I think I already have 20 custom orders to fulfill at some point this year and I'm always looking for more so if you are in the market for a handmade beanie, please let me know.
I am also torn because my "year of jojo" ends on my 1/2 birthday which is March 26. So what happens then? I'm debating about renewing my blog with Typepad, just because I'm not sure I want to pay for another year. But if I don't then does all my work this past year just disappear? I don't want that to happen. I know there is a way for me to export my posts and I will do some research on how to do that and maybe transfer my posts to a blogspot or wordpress blog that is free of charge. I already have secured the "domain" of yearofjojo at each of the above mentioned blog sites so maybe it's just a matter of figuring out how the heck to get my posts to a new blog (any advice??). I guess I have a few more weeks to figure it out. Just wanted to take the time to thank those of you who have stuck with me through my first yearofjojo, stay tuned to see what the future has in store for yearofjojo.me :).
Here is a picture from Valentine's day weekend. Matt and I went up to Tahoe and went showshoeing for the first time and had such a blast. Since my knees have decided about 12 years ago that they don't like me very much skiing/snowboarding is pretty much non-existent in my vocabulary. But I do love the snow so figured that this was a natural way to enjoy being in the snow and not in pain. We are heading up to Tahoe again this coming weekend and will also be doing some snowshoeing, woo hoo!
