I keep track of my blog statistics in a casual way. They tell me what you like and what you don’t like. I can see that the holidays generate a lot of activity, especially Christmas. I try not to lose any sleep when I don’t get too many visits in a week or if a blog post falls flat.
One of my favorite things about blogging is sharing tips and tutorials with you. I love to teach and it’s apparent that you love to learn. I’ve been watching the number of email followers grow, and last week I reached over 5,000 followers. Wow! I didn’t think I would ever see that number, and I’m honored and privileged to have you all part of my online community. Many of you follow me through Bloglovin’, Feedly, and other RSS feeds, too. There’s so many ways to stay up to date with your favorite bloggers.
The other thing I just realized (seriously, like 10 minutes ago) is January 28 will mark five years of blogging for me. That’s another milestone that totally crept up on me. I’ve come a long way since my first blog post. There’s always something new to learn and I enjoy the challenge of staying up to date with technology. It’s constantly changing!
Thank you so much for joining me on this awesome, crafty, quilty, journey. It’s been a blast and I’m so glad to share this creative space with you. I’d like to celebrate with two giveaways. Giveaway is now closed.
The first giveaway is for a Scrappy Project Planner. If you want to keep track of projects and stay organized, this is the tool for you. It’s designed by Lori Holt of Bee in My Bonnet and you can read more about it here.
The second giveaway is for a mystery box of goodies. I’m going to fill a USPS Priority Mail medium flat rate box with fabric and quilting notions that I’ve pulled from my sewing room. There will be a nice mix of supplies to add to your stash!
To enter the giveaway(s), all you need to do is leave me a comment (about anything.) This giveaway is open to everyone. You must comment by midnight, PST, January 28, 2017. Two winners will be chosen randomly on January 29. CLOSED.
Some people love giveaways and others think they’re a waste of time. My problem is that I want everyone to be a winner. So, I’m working on a new tutorial for all of you that will show my appreciation and how full my heart is. Look for the woven heart tutorial soon. Here’s a peak at it before adding corner triangles. It will be perfect for Valentine’s Day, too!
I always enjoy reading your comments. Due to the high volume of comments during giveaways, I won’t be able to reply to each of you. I appreciate your participation and I wish you luck!
