Day 5 – Something a Little Bit Different

It’s back, and this time it has the most amazing of prizes (look for the prize for ‘most creative post’). This was a massive success last year, and for many it was the highlight of the Blog Week, so this year you are challenged, again, to find a new way of blogging.
This is an experimental blogging day to try and push your creativity in blogging to the same level that you perhaps push your creativity in the items you create.There are no rules of a topic to blog about but this post should look at a different way to present content on your blog.

For something different I have created a GIF of me knitting.  In an endless loop that never gets me anywhere.

I have been a big fan of GIFs since learning their potential on the decidedly non-fiber website, Jezebel, where the commentors will often use a clip from a TV or of a famous person to denote excitement or displeasure with the content or just have GIF Parties.  Because they are short windows of time (about 4-10 frames long) they loop intefinately so that leaves much potential for accidental GIFs (ie clips from TV shows and cable news) and designed GIFs like the James Van Der Memes site (which if you are a fan of the internet and were a fan or watcher of Dawson’s Creek during adolescence you will love).

  1. Hmmm…knitting and knitting and not getting anywhere…you sure you didn’t get some pics of me in there? 🙂

    (I’ve wanted to make GIFs for a while…I’m so thankful I stopped here (from the Rav group!) b/c now I know where to go to make a GIF!

  2. You taught me something! But that one is painful to watch–it reminds me of some of my past (languishing) projects that just refused to move forward. Yike!
