One Million Milestone + Blog Candy

With all the other excitement from Convention, I forgot to pay attention... but sometime last week, my blog hit counter surpassed ONE MILLION! I can hardly wrap my head around that number. When I started this blog four years ago, I has excited to get 1,000 hits!


To celebrate this milestone, I'm giving away two prizes! In a recent closet clean-out of my stamp room, I found two "Purse Your Art" purses that are brand new and never used. The company that made them is now closed, but you can check out their blog with samples at Purse Your Art. You can decorate the purse with your cards and backgrounds and change it out as often as you want to coordinate with an outfit or season.

To enter to win, leave a comment on this blog post. As part of your comment, please also tell me how you follow my blog: whether you come directly each day or week or whether you receive my posts by email, Facebook, or other feed. I'm curious to know all the ways you find me each day that added up to 1 million hits!

Thank you!! From the bottom of my heart. I appreciate the time that you take to visit my blog. I appreciate all the comments (please leave more!) and all of the friendship and support you have given me! Here's to one million more...

Hey, Julie. I love your blog. I check it out almost everyday and if you post on Facebook, then I go to the blog from there. Thanks for all your ideas. Hope I win the blog candy!

Hello there, congrats on this milestone.I visit you everyday by marking your blog as a favourite and I have you listed under the heading TOP TEN. I find that with a subscription they come much later. This way I can have my morning cuppa tea checking out my TOP TEN blogs. Thanks for all of your ideas and your willingness to share them. Congrats again

Hi Julie! Congrats on hitting 1 million!

I've followed your blog in a couple of ways. Previously, I followed using Networked Blogs on Facebook. Now, I just use the Google Friends RSS feed so I get each and EVERY post! I hate missing out!

Keep up the inspiration and here's to another 1 million hits!

Hi Julie
I am new to your blog, in fact a friend told me about it last week when you were at convention. I subscribe by email, and have been delighted with the cards you post. First thing I do when I find a new blog is go back in history and look for samples that appeal to me. I like, I subscribe!! I am a new blogger myself, and sometimes it is hard to get motivated to post every day when you have 2 people who visit :) My upline in SU referred to my blog a couple weeks ago, and that was a kicker :) I'll keep at it, and glad you did too.

I follow you using google reader on my android phone. I follow just a handfull of stampin up demonstrators as examples and inspiration for my own relatively new business. Hopefully we can meet in person someday at a convention.
