Happy Bloggiversary To Me!

It occurred to me the other day that my blog is a year old. What a quick year that has been!

Me aged 1. Seems appropriate!

My personal, non-blogging life has been busy and eventful over the past year (generally, it's all been good, but it has been busy!) and this has made regular blogging quite difficult for me. I really do enjoy writing on my blog, though, so I try and find time whenever I can.

I Never Knew how much I would enjoy it! It feels great to have a place where I can record and document my crochet projects and my crochet journey. I enjoy writing it and I love hearing back from people. I Never Knew and Never Expected that so people would comment on my posts or follow my blog. I am amazed, flattered and thrilled by the response I have received over the past year. I'm quite stunned to see today that I now have over 150 followers! Amazing, and wonderful, and all I can say is thank you so much for showing such an interest in the crochet that I have shared.

And I Never Knew that I would "meet" so many amazing people in Blogland! I honestly didn't realise that people "follow" blogs and that through regular reading and comments, people can actually build up connections and relationships with each other. I really didn't expect that. I thought my blog would be this simple little web-page, floating all alone in cyberspace, unconnected to anyone or anything else. I thought people might just stumble across it through a google search, and that's it. Blogger.com is so much more than I realised - I had no idea that it would help me find other crochet-lovers and how our blogs keep us all connected.

Basically what I'm saying is I Never Knew there was a Blogging Crochet Community out there - but I'm so glad I've found it and that I'm connected to it. I love visiting and reading all the great blogs I have found (I read blogs far more often than I post on my own). And I have met some really wonderful people. We may not be "real-life" or "face-to-face" friends, but I feel a real connection with many of you. I don't know ANYONE else in "real life" that is my age and loves crochet. It makes me feel very lonely at times, so I have come to feel that I don't know what I'd do without you, my blogging/internet friends. You live far away, and are busy living your own lives (as am I!) but you are still very "real" to me. :-)

Awwwwwww! That's getting a bit sentimental! LOL But it's true. :-)

I guess what I really want to say is THANK YOU so much for visiting this little blog, whether it's only been the once or if you visit regularly, you are all welcome and I love having you here. Please never hesitate to leave a comment, ask a question, or send me an email. I love to hear from you!

So, here's to my next year of blogging!

See you around in blogland!

And again THANK YOU for making this so fun. I really Never Knew.

    Isn't it wonderful how quickly bloggers will link up with each other. As an avid follower of many blogs I often see at least one other blog that I follow on everybody's blogroll.

  3. Happy birthday Caz. Heres to more. Really glad to have met you too.

  4. Congratulations! Wow a whole year! I love getting comments on my blog so i try my best to pop by others to say hi. By the way, i had a go at those granny stripe headbands, they were cool!

  5. Happy ♥ Blogiversary! Isn't this crocheting-blogging world just amazing????

  6. Oh -- I feel exactly the same -- Blogging has become so much more to me than I would have ever dreamed. And "meeting" other lovely "hookers" is the best bit
    Kindest Regards Linda

  7. Congratulations on your 1 year Blogiversary! I also have no "real life" friends who are into crochet...so I love to read blogs and see everyone's projects.

  8. You are so right! This connection that we share is not only wonderful, but inspiring & so endearing when we get to 'meet' such beautiful people like you!

    Happiest of blessings on your blogiversary!
