A return to blogging

Just thought I'd throw it out there that I intend to return to blogging about life on a boat, and fiberarts while afloat.
There has been quite a bit of knitting, some needlepoint, and little sewing going on since we launched back in May.
We've come almost 2500 nautical miles since we left our home port of Holland, Michigan on Lake Michigan.
And we've had the opportunity to meet in person many of my on-line friends that I've met through blogging, Ravelry, and Stitchers Guild.
It's been an adventure.
Currently we are in a marina in Ft Lauderdale, Florida. Later this week we'll head to Biscayne Bay, then on down to Marathon where we intend to pick up a mooring for a month or so.
When in Marathon I intend to get online and begin a new blog on TypePad. Why Typepad? Well, first and foremost I can uplink the blog post to Facebook. Because most of my online interaction has been on my Droid, and using the Facebook social networking site, I'd like a blog that directly links to FB.
And, it just seems that most folks I know who use typepad have far fewer upload problems than those we experience with Blogger. My internet connectivity is too tenuous and too precious to me to be wasting time with Blogger issues.

So....in the next 2 weeks or so look for a link to my new Fiberarts Afloat Blog.
Til then, I'll share a few pics of recent projects completed while at sea.
