one year

Today is Like a Hamster on a Wheel's first birthday!

I can't believe I've been blogging for a whole year, which in blog land is a pretty difficult span of time to measure. Some days, I don't blog. Other days, I post more than once. Some weeks are filled with fun projects and others are simply updates.

In 365 days:

* I have written 385 posts.
* And received 631 comments!
* The blog has received more than 10,000 visit from Canadians.
* And folks from 64 other countries have popped by too, including the U.S., the Netherlands, the U.K., India, Brazil, Spain, Australia, Germany and Japan.
* 29 of you are followers and 55 of you subscribe in Google Reader.

How amazing is that? I can't tell you how grateful I am to all of you who read, comment and support my blog. It's been a lot of fun for me and I hope it's fun for you too.

I've got lots of ideas planned for the coming year. Looking back over some of the big (and small) projects I've accomplished over the past 12 months, I have a renewed enthusiasm to try new things.

But I'm always open to suggestions. Do you have a Try It Tuesday you'd like me to tackle? A diy project that has you stumped? Feel free to send any and all questions and requests my way!

Thanks for reading!

  4. Wow, that averages out to more than one post a day! Congratulations and happy birthday blog!

    Looking forward to more exciting posts to come.

  5. Happy Blog-o-versary! I am a huge fan of Try It Tuesdays -- would love to see one where you organize a closet or cupboards or something spending $0 (making your own storage solutions, etc.) I'm always looking for ideas!

  6. Wow! Has it really been a year? I must be getting old. :)))

  7. Happy Birthday!! Look forward to your blog every night before bed :) xoxoxo
