In 2011 I've gone from 3000 to 30,000 page views per month on my blog. Received my first cheque from Google Adsense, taken on paid sponsors and started selling my own sewing patterns.
I'm loving spending so much time crafting and blogging and feel like I've made a good start on laying a foundation which will allow me to continue doing this in the longer term as my own form of paid employment!
I'm going to continue to work on growing this blog - and also my other blog:
I'll be taking a few days break from blogging - and will return on Jan 1st with my new goals and plans for 2012.
Thank you to all my readers and blogging friends for your support and encouragement throughout this year.
I wish you all a very Happy New Year, and continued success for everyone in 2012!
