Blogging Nine Months On


On January 2nd of this year I started blogging and unbelievably I am now writing my 101st post (I know I missed the 100th yesterday with all the post birthday business). I have 72 wonderful followers and I am just short of having had 15,000 visitors so someone out there seems to be reading and following all of my waffle. I can't tell you how thrilled I am that you are reading and enjoying as I love reading your comments and then being able to visit your blogs in return.

I had no idea how much fun all of this would be when I jumped in. It has served as an online journal; it's greatly improved my slapdash photography skills; I'm much more focused in my creativity as I feel someone out there is watching and will give me some really helpful feedback and lastly something that I never envisaged would happen from this blogging lark - I've made some great friends. One is a flesh and blood friend and the others for now are written word friends, but you never know one day on our travels.

Two days after writing my first post I set up my etsy shop. Well didn't she keep quiet about that one I hear you say. Exactly, because all I did was sign up and then left it there while I set up lots of other projects and enjoyed being a mummy. However, today, I have actually put some lovely things for sale in my etsy shop. So now it's a proper etsy shop that sells things not white space. Please pop over and have a look. I'd love to hear what you think.

Thanks for stopping by and leaving me a comment. I read all of them and really appreciate you taking the time to say hello.
I always try to get back and reply, but sometimes this may take a bit longer as pets and children always seem to need attention around here.
