I can't believe I have made it this far. Five years!! Through thick and thin I am still here. Whhoooweee!
A lot has happened since last year.
I always like to include some fun facts on my blogaversary, so here goes:
This year I have had approximately 42,000 unique visits to my blog which makes that an average of 115 visitors per day which is up from an average of 101 per day the previous year. This past year I have posted on average once every 4 days which is up from the previous year when I posted on average every 5 days.
I am pleasantly surprised that I am up on my posting frequency because this past year I feel like I have gone through the wringer and hung out to dry.
On the upside I do feel like I am finally hitting my groove with being a new mom but it is still a juggling act with trying to balance my many duties....a fine art that I am still desperately striving to achieve.
This time last year I was aware of 215 tatting blogs and this year I have 222 blogs in my blog roll, however there are several blogs that seem to have "petered out" as their owners have not posted to them in over a year so I need to go in there and do some housekeeping. I am sure there are even more tatting blogs that I am not yet aware of and as always I welcome new tatting bloggers to share their links with me so that I can add you to my blog roll.
I am celebrating my big milestone with a giveaway of my tatting book Royal Diadem.
Now for what you have all been waiting for....
I had a total of 70 entries. I used a random number generator to randomly pick the winner of my special blogaversary giveaway and the winner is...... JB. A big Congratulations to JB.
Like I said last year....Thank you everyone for sticking with me through thick and thin and always encouraging me to keep on keeping on! I love you all!
Don't forget in just two days I am drawing a winner for this giveaway!
