This has been a fantastic week for me in the cyber world and I want to take a moment to thank all of you.
I first have to thank Sonya of Kanelstrand Organic Living.
I have said it before, but it bears repeating. I am amazed at the extraordinary people I have met through Etsy and blogging. Sonya is a brillant writer and photographer who puts her heart into eveything she does. She does not simply offer an advertising spot on her blog. She devotes hours and hours to running the giveaway and publishing the portrait of the artist. The whole idea of which made me blush and seemed ridiculous, but after having accepted, gave quite a boost to the old self-esteem!
I want to thank each and every one of you who participated in the contest. The results really are overwhelming:
The giveaway received 520 pageviews, 381 entries, and had exactly 80 participants
78 new hearts of my etsy shop
44 new fans on Facebook
47 new Twitter followers
42 new followers of your blog
51 retweets of the giveaway post
No other advertising has given me such amazing results! Oh, and the winner of my silk and mohair scarf is Margaret of Splendidlittlestars. Congratulations!
So, again, thank you all. I hope you will continue reading and stopping by my shop. I would love to hear from you about both. Please let me know what fiber info you would like to read about and what kind of accessories would you like to see in my shop.
Now it's kitty's turn!
Two queries for today:
1. What is sheep's wool used for? (No, I'm not kidding! Think about it.)
2. Can sheep be an endangered species?
We'll find the answers tomorrow!
