Rather a lot. Or so it seems. When first I registered for a WordPress blog, I had no idea whether I would be writing about knitting, tatting or, the more interesting part of my life: my adventures in farming. All I knew was that I wanted a WordPress blog. For what seemed like hours, I flailed about trying different usernames. My two other screen names were already taken: Lace Lunatic and Magpie, and most everything else I tried was too. Tired and frustrated, I typed in mordueparladentelle. It was accepted! Good enough.
Alas, it was not good enough. For one, I am perfectly aware that the expression is incorrect. It is a literal translation into French of ‘bitten by lace ‘ and, at the time, seemed vaguely amusing to me. I had visions of a piece of fine lace with its teeth sunk firmly into my derrière. The correct expression is: ‘mordu(e) de dentelle’. Anyway, what possible difference could it make on a blog written in English? Some time elapsed, I made a couple of posts; then I let several months slip by with no activity whatsoever.
The move from eTatters to InTatters, which did not sit well with me, prompted me to resume blogging. In the interim, I had begun communicating with Elisadusud and a couple of other French lace bloggers. Now, I am suddenly embarrassed by the idiomatically incorrect username and it irritates me every time I pull the blog up. So, since we are only 8 posts into the blogging journey, let’s have a fresh start here.
This blog will remain in place. The only post on it that I think anyone might want to refer back to is the one on clunies, and I will put a link back to it from the new site.
A few of you have already had the kindness to add a link to this blog in your sidebar. I would appreciate it if you would please take the time to update it with the new address and I apologize for the inconvenience. In all honesty, I did not expect you to find this blog so quickly because I have not linked it to my signature anywhere in the cybersphere. I thought I would have at least a month of broadcasting in the blind to fine tune the blogging process and set the site up as I want it. Apparently not. You can’t sneak much past a tatter!
Thank you all for your warm welcome and kind comments. See you on the new site.
