300K Blog Candy

Yesterday's blog traffic brought the hit counter past 300,000 hits! WOW! Thanks for visiting my blog and checking in with me each day for your daily dose of Stampin' Up! inspiration!

To celebrate this milestone, I'll be giving away some blog candy: one of my Whimsical Wings Card Kits, complete with Butterfly Accent & Dot, Dot, Dot stamps!! You can purchase this kit for yourself here. And if the randomly chosen blog candy winner has already purchased this card kit, I'll send an alternate gift instead!

Leave a comment on this post to be entered in the drawing for the card kit. I'll chose one random winner next Friday, February 12 after Noon (Central Time).

** I need your help! ** When I first started this blog, I put up the working title "Julie's Stamping Spot" with the intention of coming up with another name. And here we are, almost two years later and I still haven't decided on a new name. I would love to hear your ideas! When you comment for the blog candy, please include your suggestion(s) for a new blog name. (By the way, the address will remain the same: juliedavison.com or juliedavison.blogspot.com -- so don't worry, you'll still be able to find me here!)

And for more for my record more than anything else, here are the latest blog stats, as of today, 2-5-10:
  • Days Blogging: 628
  • # of Posts: 577

Love your Whimsical Wings! A couple of names for your blog come to mind...Julie's Jewels or perhaps Julie's Jems (just playing with the spelling for a little alliteration).

Amy N said...

Hi Julie! I think this card kit is so cute! I really like your clean and simple style and have found a lot of projects on your blog that I would love to CASE. As far as the name, I actually like Julie's Stamping Spot, and I wouldn't change it :-)

Penny said...

Hi Julie, love your blog. I like the play on words also. Jule's (or Julie's) Jewels or stamping jewels. Wish I had a thesaurus here to check out some other "J" descriptive words! Thanks for the chance to win!

Hi Julie! Congrats on your popularity not that it is a surprise ;) I like Julie's Jewels too! Thanks for the chance to win your card kit-it's beautiful!
Hugs,
Elizabeth

mamichelle said...

I like Julie's Jewels if you feel you really need to change it. Julie's Stamping Spot works for me! Love your style. Thanks so much for the inspiration and a BIG congrats on your # of hits!! Wow!

Another thought - Stamping Jules?

Patty Mickle said...

I like the last person's "Stamping Jules". Thanks for the chance to win your kit. It is beautiful!

Congratulations on all the hits! And thanks for the chance to win - this kit looks amazing!
As for your blog name - I wouldn't change it! I think it's well established as this and I like it just the way it is!

Tara Kieninger said...

I think the content makes your site, not the name, but how about: Ju-bilant Stamper!

Julie (Joypup on SCS) said...

So glad I just found your blog. Love the inspiration. You so deserve the hits!

Aimee said...

Hi Julie,

New name...I think the current one is perfect; it has your name and stamping...what more can you ask for? ;)

Congratulations on your milestone! I bet you double it in half the time!
Thanks for the opportunity to try to win your Whimsical Wings card kit! I like the name Julie's Stamping Spot, because I love the "Stampin spots" so every time I visit (which is everyday) I smile cause I think "this site is cute, just like the stampin spots".

kjvbaptist said...

I, too, agree with the Julie's stampin spot. It just fits so well. I emailed you an order, please let me know if you did not get. Thanks! Leah

Caryl P said...

Wow, I feel like you just had some other milestone, how the time flies! Congrats on another great accomplishment in this crazy land of blogging.
I love that it's Julie's Stamping Spot--you're Julie, you stamp and this is your spot to share it. What could be better?

EmilyB said...

I'm another that says, 'why fool with something when it works?' Julie's Stamping Spot is a great place to visit for inspiration!

Thanks for sharing with us!

Hi, Julie! I love your blog & your cards. Thank you for the chance to win some candy!

Sheryl said...

Hi Julie.

I think the current name of your blog is just perfect...I wouldn't change it! Congrats on the 300K!

Janet Strain said...

I actually like the blog name! It always sucks to try to come up with an alliteration with J. :( There just aren't that many J words (but lots of J names!). I also love the butterfly card kit - very pretty spring colors! If I win, I'll have to find time to make them! (Half my stamping stuff is packed away right now!) :(

Mary Ashby said...

Hello! Wow, that kit would get any lucky gal in the mood for SPRING! Congratulations on your blog success, and happy stamping!

I'm not great at coming up with clever names and titles... Julie's Stamping Spot works for me! :)

jennifer said...

Hey Julie- I actually like the name! Then again, I'm not very creative. Love the blog candy! Thanks for the chance to win!

DebbieG said...

Coingratulations, Julie. I love the Whimsical Wings card kit !!! Very pretty..... I like "Julie's Joy"

Kris Kilcoyne said...

I think you should stick with Julie's Stamping Spot... especially after all this time.

It's good for "branding".

Congrats on the success of your blog! Love your work and thanks for the chance to win.

Hi Julie. I visit everyday and love, love, love your stuff. When taking to people about you fabulous blog I always call it Julie's Stamping Spot. I think it would be a shame to change it. Just my 2 cents.

Angie said...

I just recently found your blog but I have already found great inspiration from it. So saying this how about a blog name of Julie's Inspirations. Congrats on your 300K success.

Lauren Y. said...

I like (and so used to) your current blog names, why bother to change it after two years? : )
Thanks for the inspiration, it's better & more important than a cup of coffee in the morning every day : )

Hi Julie,
Thanks for the chance to win your great kit. I love it.
It's simple yet so eyecatching :)
As for a name... I like what you have already. I did like 'Jewels by Julie'but wanted to add something "stampish" to tie it in, but couldn't think of anything sorry!
Can't wait to hear what you choose!

Cam said...

Congrats on your 300k hit which is no surprise. I like your simple and clean design and have CASEd many times. I like the current blog name. Not sure where the "jewel" comes from but if you want to include it, how about "Julie's Stamping Jewel Spot"?

Nancy B. / nacky71@hotmail.com said...

Julie - I've been trying to come up with an acronym for JULIE: Julie's Unique and Lively Inspirational Examples. Quite a mouthful, huh? Maybe Stamping Spot really does say it all.

I enjoy coming to your corner of the Internet. Thanks for keeping it up-to-date!
