In celebration of this sweet blog of mine turning ONE, I have one heck of a week planned for YOU, my awesome readers!!! THANK YOU for reading my blog! THANK YOU for leaving such kind comments. THANK YOU for liking my Facebook page! THANK YOU for pinning my posts! Thank you for re-tweeting my tweets and for adding me to your circles on Google+!! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
When I started this blog it was right after we moved from Minnesota to Joplin, MO and I knew no one. I had just become a stay at home mom and thought if I didn’t start releasing some creativity that I had stored up all my years of working as an engineer, I would explode. I never imagined that so many awesome people like yourselves would actually read my blog! I mean…I figured my cousin Missy would because she reads everything I post and of course Merrsidotes would read because, well, she has nothing better to do during the day at work and she is ALWAYS reading something. So two. Two people I figured would read my blog! You can imagine at how excited I am to know that much more than two people join me each post! You sure do know how to make a girl feel loved!
I have a super duper week planned with some awesome giveaways! There will be giveaways each day, more than once a day, so be sure to sign up for my RSS or Email Subscription so that you don’t miss a single post! Believe me, you won’t want to miss out!
Before we get to the giveaways I thought it would be fun to talk some numbers…I mean I AM and engineer and all.
Since my first post on April 26, 2011:
191 is the number of posts
1,642 is the number of comments
63 is the number of tutorials posted
15 is the number of free printables I made
365 is the number of times I have had to explain what blogging is to my husband
28 is the number of times I have had to explain to Michael why I am taking a picture of our dinner plate!
31 is the number of Washi Tape Rolls I have
17 is the number of projects started…but not finished
1658 is the number of project ideas floating through my head
1095 is the number of hours I have spent trying to learn HTML/CSS crap
During this week I am going to post a FAQ post. I get so many wonderful inquisitive emails from you all and I am so smitten that you want to get to know me more. I reply to the individual email but thought maybe someone else was curious about the same thing! I am nosey curious too so I just assume others are as well!
THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU for making this first year of blogging so nice, that I plan to stick around for another one!!! ;-)
