100


It's party time... I'm celebrating 100 followers!

I started this blog on 8 January 2011, three years ago. Progress was slow because I struggled to make the time to sit down and create, therefore I struggled to have something to blog about. In 2011 I made a total of 4 posts, in 2012 it increased to 13. However last year, 2013, I finally gave my creative side some time and space and made a total of 67 posts. At the beginning of 2013 I only had a handful of followers. I now have 100 - amazing.

I initially set up my blog as a tool to motivate myself and it has worked. I didn't realise how much I would enjoy my adventure into this blogging world and what great on-line friendships I would form. It has become far more than just a motivation tool.

I love blogging, I love following your blogs, I love creating, I love swaps and I love this wonderful worldwide miniatures community that I have become a part of.

Thank you to all my followers for your interest and wonderful comments, thank you to the bloggers I follow for your generosity in sharing your ideas and giving me some wonderful reading at any time of day.

As promised, there will now be a second prize in my giveaway. I have decided it will be a fire screen using the same antique wallpaper I used on the shelf in my giveaway, along with some accessories such as a coal bucket and shovel. I have to go away now and work out how I am going to make them.

  7. Hello Sharee,

    I love your enthusiasm! You can feel it just jump off the pages. I'm hoping I can grab on to some of that and get myself motivated in this new year. Maybe I should start a blog.....

    1. Yes Susan, start a blog. Then I can follow your blog too. Just do what you can when you can and you learn as you go. As I said, I only did four posts in my first year. Do it for yourself as a motivational tool. Above all else, have fun with it.

  10. Congratulations Sharee! I love your blog and I am impressed with your creative skills. I heard somewhere that the vast majority of bloggers post one or two blogs and then abandon the blog. This means only a small percentage have the stick-to-it "gene." Well, you clearly do, and matched with your artistic skills that's a powerful combination!

    Best wishes,

  15. Congratulations Sharee! Blogland is So much fun! It can be addictive... but in such a helpful way! I have learned so much and been so inspired.... way beyond my first imaginings.... there is just no substitute, especially as this hobby is difficult to share in RL! We can't always be carting our houses around and people are so spread apart! I hope you stick around and enjoy many more years of blogging!
