I was recently interviewed by Eliza Gale who does interviews with people around the world about the work they do and the work they want to do and the work they love. I think the most fun thing about this interview was that I got to be highlighted in the company of some other really cool folks.
First My Interview
I was interviewed about my work as a crochet blogger and got to share all about why I write (and specifically why I blog) and how that relates to my passion for crochet.
Here’s an excerpt:
Q: What inspired you to start your blog?
A: I am a professional writer who has worked in blogging for more than ten years so it was natural for me to start my own blog. I’ve actually had several personal blogs over the years but I started Crochet Concupiscence, my largest blog, in 2011. At the time I was doing a lot of writing work for other people that I didn’t feel inspired by and I wanted to start a new blog that would be a place of refuge for me. Crochet had become really important in my life and starting a blog about it was a great way for me to share what I was learning in the craft while connecting with a larger community of like-minded people.
On the Home Page
The interviews are put up on Eliza’s blog in a three column format so here’s what it looked like on the first day that my interview went live:
As you can see, the interviews up near mine were of two cyclists who are working to raise awareness about an issue that concerns them and an escape artist and illusionist who works in magic. How awesome is that?
Other Writers and Bloggers
Eliza interviews people from so many different walks of life. Some of the other bloggers that she interviewed recently included:
Anthropologist and homelessness blogger Jemayel Khawajais
Incidentally, that photo of Julianne was taken at a place I’ve been to myself: 16th Avenue Tiled Steps
