Today marks a whole year since Craftandothercrazyplans was ‘born’. 52 weeks or 366 days (cheers leap year!) of sharing craft, gardening, parenting and all of the other ponderings that have come to mind in that time. The most amazing thing is that other pe0ple (you guys!) are reading it, and commenting too.
When I started out, I was literally clueless. I didn’t know how to create a post (I’d had a brief foray into blogging when my school made class blogs compulsory but it was very short lived!), or how to follow other people. (That last thing was pretty crucial, as I hadn’t managed to interact with other bloggers.) Once I made that amazing discovery and learned how to follow others, I ‘met’ fellow bloggers and I was away!
One of the first things I read when researching how to start was that many blogs do not ‘make it’ past 6 months, so I’m super pleased to still be here, sharing my little world and learning about others all at the same time.
There have been highs and lows along the way, the early days with no views at all made me wonder if I was a little crazy talking to myself. The highs far outweigh the lows, though. Knowing that someone else has tried a craft idea you’ve shared is pretty awesome, as are the times when your posts are shared because they mean something to another person. Thank you to all of my followers, it’s lovely ‘talking’ to and getting to know you, and without you there’d not be much point in keeping this blog going and that I don’t run out of ideas.
Anyway, enough of the soppy talk, let’s just hope there’s another year or two left in this little blog of mine! Cheers!
Might have another one of these to celebrate!
