Triple Celebration!

https://www.etsy.com/listing/603178895/pretty-little-birdhouse-dollhouse?ref=shop_home_feat_4

Hooray!  The Pretty Little Birdhouse tutorial is finished, and it's in my Etsy shop now.  And there's a HUGE discount specially for you.

But that's not all my news. 
When I started this blog, about 30 people read it every week, I thought that was fantastic.  Wow, someone visits my blog every day!  Over time the number of readers have slowly increased and by now a lot of people read my blog regularly.
I noticed that the little graph of lifetime visitors was slowly climbing to the 200K mark, and I was going to make a celebration of it.  Then, last Friday while I was very busy getting ready for the weekend's market and workshop, there was a whopping 950 page views on my blog in one day! 

That's a new record.   We jumped right over that 200K hurdle, and landed by a thousand on the other side.
Statistics is a dry subject, but when one runs a business it's important to keep an eye on the numbers.  More than that, I work very much in isolation, and often don't see other people for a week or more.  Looking at my little visitor graph and knowing that you looked in on me gives me a warm feeling of companionship.  I am grateful to all of you.

So, to celebrate these three things - completion of the Little Birdhouse tutorial, reaching the two hundred thousand visitor mark, and having 950 page views in a single day -  I'm offering the tutorial for $3 in my Etsy shop.  Next week, it will go up to its regular price of $12.  Click anywhere on this page where you see a Pretty Little Birdhouse, to be taken directly to the listing.

Can I ask a favour?  If you buy the tutorial on Etsy this weekend, would you leave a rating for it?  Endorsements do so much to get the ball rolling when one puts a new design out there.

Thank you, thank you!

  7. Congratulations Megan! Thank you for the massive discount on your little birdhouse tutorial. I have just made a purchase and love everything about it, particularly the grass and so pleased to have different size templates as I need the 1/16th scale. Just off to leave a review!

  8. Congrats on reaching these landmarks - even more important these days where blogland gets deserted more and more. Your pretty birdhouses on parade are true eye candy.

    Happy Easter greetings

    1. Thank you, Birgit! I wonder whether blogland will be deserted though. People are moving away from things like Facebook, and with great services like Bloglovin where one can read all your followed blogs in one place, it becomes easy to follow blogs again. Whether people read or not, I will always be writing!
