After a few years of blogging using my computer, I’ve slowly moved on to using my phone to it. Since I don’t use the computer as much as before, having an app to acces my blog really comes handy.
However, I couldn’t find one. I don’t know if I didn’t look well enough or if the WordPress app was released after I stopped looking for one but I finally found a blogging app T-T
This is the first post I’m making with it and I’m still looking around it’s features. So far it seems like a nice tool to have!

I took a look back at older posts to check the one where I talked about how the weather was so hot that it was unbearable. It’s been a year now (that one was published on April 28,’15) and the weather is totally different. Back then I wrote that it had been very hot for a couple of days before posting it, today it’s like the fifth day it has been raining. I really like this weather T-T
It’s starting to feel more summery, or maybe it’s in my head since summer vacations is near and tropical countries always have summer weather, whatever it is I think the weather is showing that summer is here. It’s all sun and shine during the day but the late afternoon brings rain and it results in a cool night! Even if it doesn’t rain it hasn’t been too hot outside so it’s a nice weather.
The weather mixed with college ending soon has me feeling happy. I’m graduating this May with the official ceremony in June. There are only four projects left for me to do, one of them being the last chapter of the investigation project, which by the way my professor told me that they send the investigations to be printed out in a book. I’ve seen the books, black hard cover with golden letters, I never imagined that all of us get to have them printed like that. Makes one feel more professional as if the Master’s degree wasn’t enough! I mean, I think they will give us a copy! If not I’ll try to buy it then xD The other 3 projects are just homework.
After many stressful months, I was able to pick up my hobbies again. At the beginning of March I started to post here but took a break however I’ve kept posting daily on Instagram, meaning that I need to buy more yarns ’cause I’ve been crocheting a lot! haha There are also new videos on YouTube, there are a few more that are in wait because there has been issues with our internet provider so I couldn’t upload them. I think I’ll be posting videos weekly, every Tuesday since that’s the day I posted the last video. I want to post them in a steady pattern instead of randomly uploading them.
Finally, I took of the Purin layout and gave the blog a cleaner look, added links to my social media profiles and I’m currently dusting off an old Ravelry account just because I’m in the mood of linking stuff between accounts 😛 Let’s see if I learn to use it this time!

I know I’m not the only one that when starting something new wants to do it all at once. Back when I started blogging I used to spend hours and hours making stuff, and getting everything the way I wanted. It seems those times are coming back for a bit xD
After what happened yesterday (written in my previous post), I was so frustrated that I went online again and found out that other people were suspended from the site too without knowing why. Some, like me, got suspended when they didn’t have any pins or content.
So, having read that there are many issues of accounts getting suspended and wanting to have everything set, I moved on to my other choice: Instagram.
I was actually surprised to see that there are other Instagram users who post about crochet and crafts. I’m a bit old fashioned and don’t really go on social media websites (I only have a Facebook but I don’t really post that much on it) so I’m new to all of it. I do like to use chat apps since growing up I used to use MSN Messenger a lot, I kept using it until it wouldn’t let me sign in anymore because it was replaced with Skype lol …2013… I had like 2 friends left and they both used Skype to send messages to my MSN xD… But that’s another story of how I sometimes refuse changes.
Back on the topic, if I want to share pictures with friends I’ll send them through chats directly to their phones. If I want to write something, I’ll blog. Ocasionally I’ll post something to Facebook for keepsake and to share with the special friends I have there. So yeah, Idk how to use most social media apps. That’s the whole point of these last two paragraphs haha
So far I think I’m getting the hang of it. The app needs to be downloaded in order to post, you can log in on the web browser on the phone or pc and edit your profile, and upload a profile pic but that’s as much as ine can do without the app. Oh and other profiles can be seen and browsed.
The other reason I wanted to make a place to share my crochet is because I do take lots of pictures of it but I dont’t want this blog to turn into a crafts blog. There’s a bit of everything here and I don’t feel it will be a good idea to narrow it down to just one theme. This will be the space where it all meets and combines.

I’m still in shock at how this happened… So as you guys have already seen, I’m getting back online with this whole youtube videos thing. Today I wanted to make another account online so I could get in touch with other crafters and after searching online for the best way to go I decided to make a Pinterest account.
Now the funny thing is that I’ve know about Pinterest for the longest time but it’s a site that I kind of don’t like XD I don’t know why, maybe it’s because it’s so popular and every girl I know is crazy for it. Anyway, I created my account, placed a link to it on the youtube channel… was logged in for like half an hour getting my settings ready and when I made a new board got logged out. I didn’t know I was logged out because when I tried to click on something on the board a message popped up saying there was an error on their part. That’s when I clicked on the home button and noticed I had to log in again. When I tried to, it said my account was suspended. I checked my email and they has sent me one stating that the account was suspended for SPAM! The account doesn’t even have pins or followers, or “following”, how could it have been suspended for spam D:
My guess is because in the name of the new board I wrote “Ricomini’s YouTube Channel” since I was planning on pinning the videos (like I read on another blog) but I can’t find anything on the link they sent me that says I can’t mention youtube like that. Maybe it falls under “unsolicited commercial messages” Idk. They did ask to click on a link if I thought they had made a mistake.
And here I was, giving Pinterest a try because I thought I might actually like it after all. This won’t help with my dislike of the site.
OH, well look who’s there… My fictional husband haha Just when I’m about to publish this post and go watch his latest drama
