2013 Knitting and Crochet Blog Week—Day 5: Something a Bit Different


Day Five (Friday April 26th): Something A Bit Different
It’s the annual challenge to blog in a way different to how you normally blog. You may choose to create a podcast, or vlog, create a wordless post or write in verse. You’ve already stretched your wings with an infographic, now it’s time to freestyle. You can post on any topic you like, but be sure to post in a style different from your usual blog presentation. There’s not too much guidance for this one simply because the more varied the posts are on this day, the wider the sources of information for other bloggers will be. Bonus points if you manage to work your house animal in somehow.

Today’s prompt has confirmed what I already knew: I create best with structure. Given a prompt that says basically, “do anything except what you normally do,” my mind filled with silence. So since I was staring at my stash anyway, writing about its colors, I give you another infographic. I figure, having only done one other infographic, this is hardly my normal blogging style. Plus, I get more use out of all that color analysis!

  1. So cool. Can really tell what colors you gravitate to.


    • Thank you. I would’ve sworn that pink was the #1 color in my stash, and I’m not sure whether to be relieved or disappointed that blue and purple both outnumber it—though not by all that much…


  2. I can hear the crickets chirping. I like what you came up with though.


    • There have been prompts like this for two or three years now. It’s not like I had no warning. I really need to think about this sort of thing during the rest of year and be prepared!


    • I already liked personal statistics—one of the reasons I enjoy Goodreads is the various stats they can show me about my reading—and now I know ways beyond an Excel spreadsheet to play with them. This could be dangerous.
