Happy 100 To Me!!!

I can’t believe I’ve already written 100 blogs!! Go me!! I remember when I was a little blog baby….no clue what I was doing (though, I’m still trying to figure out some things!!), taking 4 hours to write one small tiny nothing of a post, going back and editing that small tiny nothing of a post about 15 times, constantly looking at the pictures I took (0k, I still do that…), and reading it over and over again. Ahhh, so cute, where does the time go? (Be prepared, this is a long post!!)

I’ve tried to be good, writing one blog a day (there were a few days I even had two!), but there were some lazzzzy days. I’m okay with it though, I think I deserved them!! I work really, really hard on my posts, making projects that should take minutes, take hours. Stopping every step to take pictures, then the time spent editing the pictures (sometimes if I’m having a good day even cloning out some ugly Roscoe hairs that got in the shot hehe), then the actual writing of the posts. I spend hours doing this almost every day! But I love it πŸ™‚ I love all the nice comments I get from my lovely followers (keep ’em comin’!!), I love getting new followers, and I also love being able to look back and see what I’ve accomplished when I’m having a bad day.

I’ve also gotten very lucky, being featured on the Freshly Pressed section of WordPress,Β  bringing in lots and lots of followers. I had no clue what it was, what it meant, or what it did. All I knew, was I had all these views, comments, likes, and new followers, and something was going on! Sure enough, I saw the email, and couldn’t contain my happiness! All my hard work was getting paid off, and I was so very grateful for it! Then, although I didn’t get freshly pressed again, a follower of mine was, and had mentioned me in a post prior to it, so I got a lot of views and followers from that as well. And finally, (this I will never get over), getting over 50,000 views and a whole lotta followers from my T-Shirt Remodel post! Some of you may get this many views in a day, but for me, it was a HUGE amount, and I am SO grateful for Pinterest for bringing all these people to my blog!

Now, I’d like to make a few lists….20 of my most popular posts that I’ve had, and 15 that should get some recognition, because they’re pretty fricken awesome!
