MagKnits is no more.
Lately I’ve seen a number of bloggers (knit-bloggers especially, since those are the blogs I follow most) that have decided to stop blogging or blog very, very little these days and various websites that have "close up shop." I’m saddened by the number of people doing this because the blogs and websites I follow or check often are carefully chosen, but I do fully understand that people have lives to live outside of blogging and websites that they run in their spare time. After all, according to the New York Times, blogging can kill you. I think it’s a little funny that I read that article the other day and since then I’ve seen a number of bloggers post that they aren’t going to blog anymore (all for various reasons, mostly personal), then noticed that a lot of blogs I was reading haven’t updated in quite some time, and today I find out about MagKnits.
I think I find it all rather interesting since I’ve been blogging since I was 17 or so and have found myself at an undecided place with it. I also think it’s sad to see these blogers no longer blog since I have enjoyed reading their posts/websites for quite a while now and to see MagKnits take down their website (they had some great patterns!).
