happy blogiversary

Happy Blogiversary to me! Craftybits @ is one year old today. To celebrate, I’ve made a new header (if you’re reading this through a feed reader, please click through to my site to see it). Bye-bye to the text-only header, and hello to some of the favourite things I’ve made. I’ve saved my template so I can switch in different photos whenever I feel like it. What do you think?

a look back

Wow, I’ve been blogging for a whole year… I feel like the year has flown by, but when I look back at what I’ve accomplished in the past year I can’t believe how far I’ve come in one year! Over the past year, I have:

  • participated in 7 Whiplash challenges and 3 OneHourCraft challengeswhiplash entries
    onehourcraft entries onehourcraft entries onehourcraft entries
  • increased the traffic to my site every month (numbers removed because I’m not competing with anyone – it’s only the trend that interests me):
    stats - year 1
  • published 7 original crochet patterns with more on the way, and the free Fuzzballs pattern
  • written several tutorials to help out other crafters
  • and made lots of new friends in the craft blog community!

…and forward

I don’t know how I’m going to top all that, but I have so many new ideas I’m going to have a good try! I think lack of time will be my main problem. But this isn’t a race or a competition – I do this (crafting and blogging) because I love to do it. Whatever happens next year, if I enjoy it as much as I’ve enjoyed the past year, that will be enough for me πŸ™‚

ps… monkeys

I’m suffering from a yucky cold right now so I still haven’t finished the monkey pattern πŸ™ But I’m determined to beat it soon – I’m meeting up with the lovely Kari of Crafty Ginger this weekend, so I will not be sick for that. Can’t wait to see you, Kari!
