Where do you spend your time?
Where did you spend most of your knitting-related internet time in September? Choose one option that most closely represents your answer.

In making a choice between a "toss-up" between KH and Rav...we're asking for folks to chose the one the they usually need to GO TO first thing!

If you would like to leave a comment about WHY you spent more time in your knitting-related favorite, that would be appreciated!

Such as:
Why did you spend most of your time at your #1 in September?
What did you especially like about your #1 knitting-related place?

Need a new option
Fairly evenly split between both
I chose rav only because I have more forum choices to read there
but I come here first and last
firefox allows me to have both websites as my homepage (along with weather forecast and facebook)
but I do love my KH, and recomend it to ALL the knitters who do not want to pay me to be their knitting tutors

I have 6 tabs open on Firefox right now, Google News, KH, Google Reader, Ravelry, Plurk and right now Molehill Empire (Rae!). I bounce all over the place checking out my "favs". Can't really say where I spent most of my time though, there are times where Plurk can keep me busy for a little bit, the other night I was chatting here on KH for the evening, Ravelry can be a time suck every now and then....

Hi!

Thanks for your feedback, ecb! I think you definitely voted correctly about your time split.

In making a choice between a "toss-up" between KH and Rav...we're asking for folks to chose the one the they usually need to GO TO first thing!

We wanted a definitive percentage with this September Poll...so that is why the options are a, b, or c.

I personally voted for KH because the first thing I do after firing up my laptop is check my email inbox...and click through the links for my KH thread subscriptions! After I've checked out my favorite threads...THEN, if time allows, I mosey on over to the Ravelry Ranch and see if I messages there...tweak my Notebook and projects...then check out my favorite groups for new posts, etc.

I voted KH because I don't want to get behind on the forums I check regularly. I only have about three forums I check regularly on Ravelry, so that's fairly quick. My number of posts on each reflects the time I spend on these sites.

I spend more time on this site because of the forums here. I feel like I "know" people here and I always get such great info here.

When I do go to Ravelry, it's usually to look up a pattern. I don't spend anytime in the forums even though I belong to several groups there. It's just not as interesting to me.

It will be interesting to see the final results!

How about equally? I spend as much time here as Ravelry, and a bit less on 2 other boards and some yahoo lists I'm on.

Okay, read your post #4, and I think you should have worded your poll to reflect `where do you go first'. So I'll vote for KH, cause it's the first thing I do after opening my browser to the email and comics in the morning, and when I get home from work I sometimes skip the email.

I agree with you, lelvsdgs! I like the smaller, intimate community of knitters here at KH!

I've learned and seen some interesting things at Rav...but KH is my homebase.

Because of computer problems and a major knitting project (and that stoopid work/family stuff) I haven't been on the computer as much, but KH is my first stop, and usually my only stop.

I check Rav periodically to see if I have any messages, or to look for a pattern, but that's about it.

I only go to ravelry when I can't find what I need on KH. I love our little community, and I think there's too much happening at ravelry. All my friends are here! When I do go, I pretty much just use the features KH doesn't have, like being able to look at different projects from several people at once, or to find out what I can do with X yards of _______ yarn. I rarely go to the forums.

PS... is this out of curiosity, or is Amy doing research, or what....
