I started this blog on October 25, 2012, so I consider it just a baby in blogland. But I am so thrilled to say that over the weekend my blog had 10,000 hits! As of right now it has 10, 777 hits total! I am so excited! I am a novice when it comes to technology stuff, so I am definitely in a learning process with all of this. I cannot tell you how many hours it took me to figure out how to get a pinterest button on my blog! But I finally did it, and that felt like an accomplishment. You would not believe how many more hits my blog gets now! It went from somewhere in the 100 hits a day range to usually over 550 hits per day! I was totally in awe when I noticed this jump. And my most popular post to date was the one I did on My favorite pinterest pins of 2012. It has over 1,800 hits! Now, compared to Young House Love or some of the other hard hitting blogs, that is just peanuts. But to me, It is totally awesome! It inspires me to keep blogging, and another thing that keeps me going is so many nice comments by people, both friends and strangers, who have told me I inspired them in some way! I inspired a complete stranger? That is so great! I even have complete strangers who have subscribed to my blog! I can’t believe it! Thank you to everyone who takes the time to read my little blog. I am enjoying putting it out there more than I can say.
Today I want to share a picture I bought at the Goodwill that I transformed using some jute. I can’t remember how much I paid for this, but it was somewhere around $3.00. I believe the jute cost around $5, and I have used it on two projects with plenty still left over. Here is the picture I bought.
