me: one hundred (plus) thank yous

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.
