Today marks this blog’s 6th birthday :). As crazy as it seems 6 years ago today I started out with my first post, a small idea & no idea what it would turn into! Each year traffic growing… 130,318 hits the first year, 505,064 the next and now over 1 million the last few years. In the last 6 years there have been just shy of 4,000,000 views???
I started blogging simply as a way to easily share my crafty projects with the multiple forums and groups I belong to as well as friends & family. Then I started adding things here & there and next thing you know I have 2,890+ people that actually subscribe via email & RSS alone to read what I have to say and another 1,700 followers on Facebook! I have to thank all my readers… if you hadn’t been here to read, leave comments & ask questions I would have problem flaked out like I did on my private family blog. You give me the encouragement to keep on blogging, THANK YOU!!!!
As the years have come & gone I have seen this little project grow… now I look forward to making & doing more with it! This last year has been crazy & hectic as promised with lots of changes around our house. We have mostly adjusted from going from a family of 6 to a family of our surprise 7th, lol. I have FINALLY started producing and selling my own .pdf patterns as well as taking on some other work from home. That being said a few birdies have been chatting with me about things to come in the following year and I look forward to sharing them with my readers & hopefully starting to do some even bigger things!
I hope your Christmas or other holidays went well and have a safe & happy New Year everyone!
Congratulations on your 6 years!! When something is great… people will find it, so I am not surprised by your number of followers. I look forward to many more inspirational posts. Thanks!!
