It was fun while it lated but all good things eventually come to an end. I had to close the Facebook group for this web page. The Fan page is still there, but the group chatter is history.
A lot of people wanted me to hand it over to another admin. Can't. The problem is with the way FB functions and what happens to groups when the group creator leaves. Right now I have a beef with Facebook, which I will not go into detail over. Suffice it to say that I'm glad it's a free thing otherwise I'd be asking for a refund.
Another reason is that I have been running the chatter page for 5 years and I'm burned out. I don't mind helping people when they get stuck but when questions are posted repeatedly, especially ones that are easily searchable, and when the answer is found here on this blog...answering those questions over and over and over again really wears on a person.
Suffering Fibromyalgia since 2009 doesn't help. I don't feel good all the time and readily get irritated when people ask easily searchable questions. It just wasn't fun anymore. I live by a rule and that is, if it's not fun, stop doing it. That's exactly what I did.
I also wanted to have more time for, you know, weaving. I was spending so much time answering the same questions over and over and over that it was cutting into my weaving time.
So, there you have it. Since I'll be doing more weaving, that will give me a chance to also do more blogging about it. I don't use the rigid heddle much anymore but still do a lot of weaving on my floor looms. You can catch my adventures with that at joyofweaving.com.
See you there!
\\//, Live long, prosper and happy weaving!
