Today is my second Blogiversary. The reminder has been on the calendar since I updated to the new one earlier this year and has been entered as a birthday so that I don't miss it like last year!
I'm very glad that I started this blog 2 years ago. I have met so many people both through the many and varied blogs I read and also face to face as a result of it. So many lovely people out there with so many talents. We are all so lucky that there is a forum where we can put ourselves out there and have people appreciate our efforts.
When I started this blog I had a 4 year old, a 2 year old and a 3 month old baby and a dream of creating my own website to sell my handknits. I now have a 6 year old, a 4 year old and a 2 year old and a live website and shop that I created from scratch, where people can browse and buy what I make. I'm thrilled. I wouldn't have pursued my knitting to the same degree without the impetus of the blog and I certainly would never have created a website or set up a shop. My plan for the upcoming year is to try to get more traffic to my website, whether this is through offering stock through Etsy or MadeIt, or in another way I am not yet sure. But since the website is there and I have more stock to add to it I may as well try, the hard bit is already done!
In the spirit of trying to get the word out there I am offering a giveaway, just leave a comment and I'll put you into the draw for this lovely pair of baby socks, handknit from Ixchel Blue Faced Leicester (wool) and angora (bunny), lovely and warm for a baby aged 3-9 months or so. If you don't have a little one yourself, they are sure to make a lovely gift for a friend or family member so go ahead and leave a comment by Friday January 29th, 9pm EDST (Aus) and a way for me to reach you in case you win. Good Luck!
