Blogging While Rotating

There is a problem with blogging while stitching projects in rotation. On many days, there simply isn't enough progress made on a specific project to be of any interest to anyone but the rotation stitcher.  It makes far more sense to do a once weekly round-up of photographs.  So what does one blog about in the intervening days?  It is, after all, a stitching blog.  Just how many not actually about stitching accomplished, but still related to stitching nonetheless topics can one mine for posting?

These past few weeks haven't been much of a problem.  There have been the usual end of one year and start of another topics: a review of spending, finishes and goals for 2014 and the setting of goals for 2015.  I have also had a giveaway and posted about stitch related baking.  And every so often I can write a finish post for one of the projects in the rotation.  And I still have a few Gallery Post topics left to cover and, as I complete a few more projects, a few more updates to existing Gallery Posts.  I don't really have the time to comb the internet for interesting stitching related articles.  I could start posting reviews of the stitching books I have in my library.  I would like to maintain a pattern of four or more posts a week but without being an utter and tedious bore.  I shall have to give this some more thought.

I don't comb the internet for stitching stories. Google alerts does. Easy enough to set up. But I'd also like to read reviews of stitching books.

I am working on a large needlepoint project currently, and for that reason find I am blogging less, because yes, how often can you show bits of progress?!
