Who knew?

So, yesterday I published an entry asking for test knitters.   It was written the day before – the same day I posted in a few groups on Ravelry asking for testers.  You see, I wasn’t getting many replies (or people reading the threads), so I thought it would be a good idea to post here too.

It was kind of watching water boil – you know how if you keep on watching it feels like water takes forever to come to a boil (not true, but feels like it)?  Checking those thread felt the same way.  I kept on going back, waiting for a reply to no avail.  Then Joel came home and I got off the internet.
Obviously, as soon as I stopped checking, the replies offering to test came in.  And they kept on coming.  By the time the post here came up, I had more than enough people willing to test knit for me :D.

There’s more, though.  Posting outdated information here wasn’t the only social media faux pas I made.  Months ago I got tired of the spam I was getting here, so I changed the settings in the comments.  It worked so well that even people who had previously posted comments here were unable to do so :P.  I didn’t know this and if it wasn’t for Dorothy letting me know on Ravelry, I’d go on completely unaware of this problem.
I got a spam comment minutes after I changed the setting, but at least real people will be able to comment (I hope).

On other news, I’m giving Facebook another go.  The first time I tried it, it was a complete disaster, with bonus real life drama.  Deleting my old profile, aside from being labor intensive, was no big deal since I didn’t have any idea what to do with that account anyway.
Times have changed and the WordPress platform now allows me to share stuff easily, so I’ll give it another try.  You can find my profile here.
