Blog Anniversary!

second birthday cake with boy

Two years ago I started writing this blog, with a short little note about a hoarding conference I had just attended.

Now, two years later:
- Number of posts: 699
- Number of subscribers: well over 900
- Number of readers last month: over 12,000
- Number of countries the readers came from: 118

Thank you all for your support! You keep me energized and inspired to keep on writing.

While I know who some of you are - my frequent commenters, some of my fellow organizers - there are many more of you I don't know. If any of you are so inclined, I'd love to know:

- What type of posts you like the most.
- How you happened to find my blog.
- Anything else you'd like to share.

Happy Anniversary!

I'm a new reader, as you know! I found your blog through a link from another organizing blog (I can't remember which one, sorry!).

I have been enjoying all your recent posts that review cool organizing products. Even though I'm an organizing junkie myself, I don't buy much in the way of products. However I love hearing about them and getting ideas. Thanks!

Mazel tov, Jeri!

You know how much I love your blog, so anything else I said would be sycophantic at this point. So I'll just say "Yay, You!" for finishing up your second year, and I hope three's the charm for even more success!

Congratulations, Jeri!

As you know, your blog is one of my favorites. Your choices of organizing items to post are great -- different, interesting, often unique and always inspiring.

I also appreciate the time and effort it takes to do all the research and post daily. Very impressive!

Onward to a wonderful third year!

Happy blogiversary! I love your posts where you discuss and link to great organizing/clutter philosophy. I've even bookmarked some of them. :)

Sarah, Julie, Cynthia, Plum Texan: Thank you all!

From the comments here and in e-mail, some people's favorites are the product posts, and other people's favorites are those dealing with organizing theory/philosophy.

So I guess continuing to do a mix will work out just fine. :-)

Anyone else want to have a say?

Happy Anniversary and all the best from Lviv (Ukraine)!
You have perfect blog!

Congratulations! :)

Some Flylady stuff was posted in one Estonian handicraft forum and somehow I got here through Flylady page, can't remember how exactly. Liked it better, subscribed to newsletter after reading some posts.
I like both product and general organizing stuff posts. Product ones are always such an eyecandy, and although I couldn't buy any of these things here, it's still very good for inspiration ;)
I'm very thankful for finding this blog and other organizing blogs, it's given me courage and inspiration to start to change my life to better, cleaner and less cluttered.

Olha and Miina, it's wonderful to hear from you!

Miina, I wish you all the best as you make those changes.

Have I mentioned lately how much I love the internet? Having all of us being able to connect concerning a common interest, from all around the world, makes me incredibly happy.
