Oh Happy Day!

Had I stayed on blogger, today would have marked my “blogoversary”. Yes, I have been blogging for an entire year! Woohoo! You poor things who’ve been with me since the get go, and have had to deal with me for a while. Each and every one of you deserves an award for that one! 

For those of you who sell on etsy, landing on the front page is something we all hope to achieve. I was in Etsy Chat tonight when one of my etsy peers, justthebest4u mentioned that there was a way of finding out when we’ve been featured on the front page. About a month ago, I had my suspicions that something had happened since I received about 200 views in a matter of minutes. I wondered what had caused that, when come to find out I was on the front page! I always imagined what it would be like if I happened to just click on etsy, and saw one of my images there. Well, I didn’t get to see it, but I cannot imagine I would have been any more excited than I am right now!

It may not seem like a big deal, but it is to me. I struggled with opening this shop…I didn’t know if my images were good enough, if I was good enough, and how people would react to my work. The reason I felt the need to post this tonight is, a year ago today I got the urge to create a shop on etsy with my scarves. I didn’t know if they’d sell…I left my comfort zone, but tried anyway. I didn’t know how to promote but had read that blogs were a good way to go, so I did that. I was so happy when I got my first reader, and it just grew from there. I am not the same person I was February 24, 2008. Things in my life have changed, I have changed, but one thing is for certain…I have much to thank because of blogging. It’s been my outlet, I’ve come to you for strength, many of you guided me to start this etsy shop I love so much.

For those of you who are apprehensive about starting your own business, or doing something you really want in life….don’t fight it. I love this community, thank you for all you do! I look forward to February 24, 2010, to see how things have changed. I hope you all have a wonderful day, and thanks again. You inspire me!

Tuesday Afternoon

Hello everyone. I’m feeling a little under the weather today. As much as I’d love to check out all your fun blogs today, I think I’m going to have to put it off until tomorrow….unless I make a miraculous recovery today! Have a great one!!!

 					       I Like this quote I dislike this quote“Friends are those rare people who ask how we are and then wait to hear the answer.”

"Friends are those rare people who ask how we are and then wait to hear the answer.”

Ooooooops!

Guess I had too much fun at the wedding and was a bad blogger, as I didn’t post my once a day post this weekend. Here are two to make up for it. Hope you all had fun this weekend! 🙂

Have a great start to your week!!!!
