Well, it's my birthday too, yeah...
Well, pikelet workshop's birthday to be more precise. It's incredible to think that I've been making these crazy Poppets for only two years. The Facebook page arrived not long after I launched the business but the blog took a little longer. For the sake of being schmaltzy, here's a link to my first blog post.
In just over a year, I've written over 150 blog posts and received over 26000 hits. Fancy that!
I've sold heaps of Poppets (poor fingers), even though there was an almost twelve month hiatus whilst we moved to the other side of the world.
A big thanks to all of you for sticking around, purchasing my products and listening to my drivel. The online community is an incredibly rewarding place to hang out, I'm a complete addict! And I feel like I've only really skimmed the surface of it. My toes are dipped into Twitter though I haven't really made a commitment to it yet, it makes me feel like I'm being unfaithful to Facebook. Ha! But with all the changes that will no doubt happen to Facebook as it goes public, Twitter may become even more of a necessity for those of us in business.
Who knows what lies ahead, I like to be fairly organic in my approach to business though I should knuckle down a little more in future. I need to get a better camera and learn how to use it, spend more time editing photos etc. I would like to work on some tutorials and post more recipes, and generally just be more regular with this whole blog thing. And I need to start focusing on cracking the Canadian market in earnest, sometime.
But, for now, I would like to offer up a giveaway in thanks to your incredible loyalty and support.
Here's how it will work...
Simply comment ONCE below, warm fuzzy fluffy posts encouraged (this is, after all, a celebration!) and you will be entered into the draw. Two lucky followers will be given the opportunity to order a custom Poppet each.
You can't order an existing design (no pirates or superheros or mermaids please), you have to challenge me to come up with something new. I'm up for it!
This draw is open internationally, and you will have 24 hours to comment (closing at 6pm Toronto time tomorrow). The winners will be chosen via random.org.
You guys rock, and are totes awesome. Thanks again, and good luck with the draw.
I'll be off now, these family members won't feed themselves...
