Happy 10 Years Blogging to Me!


March 22, 2008 is when I posted my very first blog posting. Ten years later I am still blogging. Several other blogs I have followed have come and gone. Some switched to Facebook, Instagram, or other social media because it is faster and they don't have to write a lot, just post their creations; but blogging is where I can not only post photos of quilts and bags and other things I have made, but also can write about it. I can tell you the pluses and minuses of the patterns I have tested, or the changes that I personally made to the item. I can share tips with you that I have discovered myself or picked up from someone else. And so much more.

Blogging to me is more personal than other social media and I like that. I have come to know a lot of you through your comments, or questions. I have helped some of you when you asked how I did something in particular, or asked for advise. I am happy to share my knowledge and help out when I can. I have been sewing since I was a child, so I have a lot of experience, but I am always learning new techniques and tricks along the way too. I never stop learning.

One of my blog followers (from Canada) and friend (though we have never met in person, so she's a cyber friend, lol) even remembered my 10 year blog anniversary well before this posting and sent me a Groupon voucher for some Rum Ball Cake Pops from Sweet Suga Mama's. How sweet and kind was that? I suppose I can toast (with the rum part) and eat the cake all at the same time. Was that the idea Rochelle? Thank you so much Rochelle for remembering my blog anniversary and for your friendship and following me on this blog adventure of mine. I was certainly surprised by your sweet gift, but value your friendship even more. (As of this writing they have not arrived yet, so I will let you know when they do arrive).

I want to thank all of you friends and followers (old and new) for following me and supporting me on this blog adventure of mine and I hope I can continue blogging for another 10 years! Cheers! Grab a rum cake ball and enjoy!!!

  6. Dang it! I thought I was early enough for the delivery of those darn rummy cake pops - and yes, when I saw them, it seemed the perfect opportunity to combine a "toast" with the cake that we discussed last year. Whenever you get them, I still wanna hear if they are as great as others say they are.

    And of course, Happy 10th, my friend... it's a great accomplishment. May you be continue to be inspired to blog for a long time. :-)

  8. How wonderful!! COngrats! I like you, find my blog to be sort of a journal that people can read! LOL!!! I enjoy blogging and it's my only type of social media. Many have tried to get me to go to instagram and ect...but I just truly enjoy my own little virtual quilting guild I have found through blogging. It's all I need. THANKS for being a part of that....and again...congrats.!!!

  12. Happy anniversary, Daryl! I do believe I'll enjoy a few of the rum bal ... oh my I'm too late - someone ate them all! *kicks the floor and pouts* >:D

    I'm with Bethany - I wish more people would stick with blogging - I don't do other social media, and Pinterest isn't a very "social" program (especially with all the crappy changes they're making, grrr). I like reading blog posts and seeing what people are up to and being able to refer to their previous posts and photos - it's like sitting in their kitchen and catching up with them, while not worrying about being in my jammies, haha. I use a blog reader so I'm always happy to see new posts come through!
