Wow, thanks! I have reached the crazy number of 800 followers. It's been a long road, one that I intend to continue to travel.
My blog has had 464,713 views since I began blogging in May 2010. That blows my mind. I am aware that a large part of the jump in readership comes from Pinterest, which is why a post from May 2010 (my 7th post, just shortly after I began blogging), is my most viewed post ever, with 11,618 views! This is ridiculously crazy. The post is about the weird and experimental toothpaste batik method, that I actually have posted about on 4 other occasions. You can find the other posts by looking through my cloud of labels on the right of the blog.
In the 2-1/2 years I've been blogging, I've written 468 posts. My number one traffic source (that's how people find their way to your blog) since I first began blogging is my blogger-buddy Mr. E, though in recent weeks Pinterest has been my biggest source.
A while back, I added the page 'A Happy Art Room'. (You can find it by clicking the tab at the top of the blog.) It continues to get a HUGE number of views, which is odd, because I'm a retired person. Again, I believe it's because of Pinterest. There's a photo on that page of my color wheel table (which I left behind for my successor, since it was never really my table to take with me) and I've seen images of it re-pinned countless times on Pinterest.
Anyhow, thanks so much for continuing to visit. I love the exchange of ideas and opinions, and look forward to many more years of active blogging. I've still got lots more to post, so keep on visiting!
