2-Year Blogversary Celebration

In stash on April 17, 2009 at 1:10 pm

To be honest, it seems like I have been writing this blog for a very long time. Yet according to WordPress records, I wrote my very first post on April 11, 2007.

I started this blog for the selfish reason of promoting my Etsy store, the very store that I have removed the lion’s share of my inventory from. I would have closed it months ago if it wasn’t for my affiliation with the Etsy Knitters Street Team.

I keep writing because I love it. Some days, it is my motivation to actually finish the knitting/sewing/quilting project that I started. Other days, it is my outlet for frustration. Mostly, it is a place where I can come and share my hobbies with other people who understand and are just as passionate as I am about them. Dan is sweet and supportive, but he has never once elicited the correct response to a skein of yarn or a bolt of fabric. 

I have met some wonderful people via this blog; people that I refer to as my friends. It is time that I properly thanked each and every one of you who reads my blog and sends me lovely comments.

Properly = with Free Yarn

For example,

To win, just leave me a comment. I’ll randomly pull a number, or 2 or 3 numbers, out of a hat (i.e. use a random number generator) on Monday of next week, April 20th.

  1. Welcome home, Marie. We want pictures from your trip!! What was the most fun thing you did? Did you buy any yarn/fabric? That is my fav part of going outside my province. Did you get anything really special? This could be a blog in itself!!

  2. ok, I’m dumb; how do I get to your Picasa Gallery? I have one, too, but never thought of putting it on my blog. How do you direct one to see your gallery?

  3. Woo :) Happy blog-versay! :) Spring must have been the month to start blogging! lol :)

  4. Congratulations on your Blogaversary! I was thinking that I have never even seen your Etsy shop! I think I’ve been blogging about the same length of time, but it’s hard to tell because I was confused and my first few “posts” I uploaded as “page elements” not understanding how the software worked – which reminds me I should delete those photos “page elements” that hang out at the bottom of my page – LOL

    Ditto on the request for more info on trip to England.

  5. Happy Blogversary!
    As another member of the EtsyKnitters, I’m glad you stay with us!
    :)

  6. Congratulations on your blogversary! I enjoy reading your blog, and you’re right about folks not understanding fiber/yarn/fabric fanatics. “It takes one to know one” I guess! :)

  7. Congrats on the 2 years! I’ve enjoyed getting to know you via our blogs…and now FB and Twitter!

  8. Happy Blogaversary! I think I missed mine this year. oops. Heh.

  9. Happy Blogaversary Marie, I’ve enjoyed getting to know you and being friends!

  12. Marie!

    Congrats on two years of blogging awesomeness. I check the blog every now and then and have referred it to my girlfriend because she’s just gotten into the world this is knitting. Keep up the good work, and be sure to tell Dan I said hey!

  13. Well now you know I have been an avid fan for a long while now. And of course I would love to win some wool!!

  14. Happy blogiversary and hope there are many more to come!

  15. Happy Blogaversary! 2 years is a great achievement. I love the fact that I count you as one of my friends – and without your blog I would never have found you! Thank you for your congratulations and nice words too – LOTS of baby knitting going on here now!

    Congratulations again

  16. Happy blogiversary :o)

  17. Happy Belated Blog-a-versary! (I’m never quite sure how to “correctly” spell that, haha) Your blogs are always a delight to read- I hope you never stop blogging!

  18. I am leaving my etsy store to languish also. Congratulations on your anniversay! I agree it does push me to complete things also, or look at them differently.
