Craft blogging is hard work. There is so much that goes in to each post; idea generation, making things, photography, photo editing, writing, posting... Add to that all the work that goes into maintaining a presence in a blogging community.
It makes a political blog seem downright easy. All they do is think, write, and click post. (And sometimes I suspect they skip the first step.)
I'm sure all bloggers get a secret (or not so secret) thrill from watching their follower and subscriber numbers rise. Tell me that it's not just me. It may be especially thrilling for craft bloggers; a validation of all our hard work.
Thank you to all of my new (and old) followers for reading and helping me reach 100+ Google followers! I'm having a great time reviving this old blog and staying honest to my commitment to be creative everyday.
In other following and reading news, last night I finally checked out the bloglovin website that I've seen around the web. I decided to try it out and switch my craft blog reading from Google Reader to Bloglovin. It seems like a better way to read people's posts and appreciate their overall blog design too. We'll see how I like it, because I adore Google Reader.
If you decide to check it out too make sure you follow my blog with bloglovin.
