Happy first year birthday to my website.

So a YEAR ago today my website went live – wow where does time go. As a result I guess its Happy first year birthday to my website! I started nervous but excited, without a clue (mind you I’m not sure that’s really changed) and have pretty much made it up as I go along!

Created to provide a free service/ information site to other parents, offering parenting ideas and simple affordable Art and craft ideas linked to other social media platforms, I think I have managed to achieve the objective. 53 blogs, 69 projects, over a 1200 visitors later from all around the world (without trying to hard) I am still active and haven’t given up.

I may have temporary slowed down to focus on other things whilst dealing with the seasonal bugs. However over the last year I have enjoyed being creative, creating a website, whilst receiving so many positive comments and feedbacks. Long may it continue. Please continue to follow, like, share and comment (I will read all comments, however please do not be offended and I hope you understand if I don’t post to my website as I will only post comments that pass all security checks to keep my website as safe as I possible as I can for my visitors: this is more important to me than publishing ‘the pats on the backs’).

Along side the website I created several other social media platforms throughout the year though I recently closed my twitter account (as this wasn’t doing much, partly my fault for not being active on it but I have also discovered/learnt that twitter has really been and gone) : My Pin interest account has blown me away with my visitor figures numbers (a lot more than my website, monthly in the plus four figure numbers) I could never ever imagined that many people would view our projects and it is very much leading the way as my top platform for getting our stuff out there. So all is good – Here’s to another year of typing and creating!

 At the moment I have been dealing with a lovely joyful seasonal bug, – severely bored with coughing my guts up one to many times now! So at the moment with other commitments leading the way I am not sure how many new Christmas projects we will create to put on here, I will try but cannot promise as at the moment I feel like I am just surviving the basic tasks of parenting!

So despite it not being December yet, I know there are people looking for some Christmas inspiration. If you are one of them then – please take a look at the Christmas project section from last year. links provided below. Or feel free to share any of your own ideas!
