100 Posts

It has occurred to me that I have 100 blog posts now! I went back to see my first post because I couldn't remember what it was. When I saw it I literally laughed out loud. I must have thought that by making my post title my Etsy Shop web address that it would be clickable right to my store, not to the post. Aaaaahhhh newbies.

Anyway, my first two posts were short and basically said, "This is what I did today BUY SOMETHING."

Since my first couple posts, I think I've come a long way. BeadingDaily.com discovered me from my post about my birds nest choker. I was excited to see how much exposure my blog and shop got that week.

I've learned a lot about blogging, such as adding widgets, stat counters, and especially editing HTML codes. After a lot of blood, sweat, and tears, I figured out how to make three columns (to hold more widgets), and made my little Favicon, which is the little tiny icon in the address bar to the left of my blog's address. You may have noticed that I make most of my links open up to a new window now. If you are wondering how, you just add target="_blank" in the HTML after your hyperlink. For example, when I linked the word "post" in the paragraph above, I got it to open in a new window by doing this:


I've participated in many blog carnivals, and even hosted a few. I've blogged not just about crafting and my jewelry, but also about hiking, cake decorating, and other things that I enjoy. By watching my Feedjit Live, I can see that people are still readinging my Etsy Tutorials.

Speaking of cake - my mother-in-law sent me an eCake:
