One year ago I started blogging. In this first year I wrote 171 blog posts, got about 800 comments and over 100'000 page views (if you are interested, my step by step tutorial of an art journal page gets the most views thanks to Pinterest). Those numbers don't say a lot about how much I love this space I created in the past twelve months. I am so thankful for every person who visits my blog. I love to read each and every comment I get and I always reply to them. Even if it's just a short "thanks". I'm happy someone takes the time to read what I have to say so it goes without saying that I take the time to reply to comments.
In this first year of blogging I learned a lot, got some amazing opportunities and said "no" to a few projects. I wrote almost every day and worked on more projects than ever before. I improved my photography skills (which are still very basic), learned how to edit my photos in a fast and easy way (RadLab for the win!) and worked out a system how to write my blog posts.
To celebrate this first anniversary I decided to give something back to my readers. One person can win a package with some fun items I made as part of my 27 handmade items project. In the package you'll find the dream catcher, the pouch I made, the oil painting, some marbled paper and a card I screen printed.
If you want to enter the giveaway, please leave a comment and tell me what you are looking forward to do this month.
The giveaway is open worldwide and I'll announce the winner on Tuesday, July 21.
