Designs by Diligence is Six

It's hard to believe that this blog has been around for 6 years this month. In February I always like to look back to what has happened, so I can look forward to the next year.

So much has happened in 6 years. On a personal level we have moved 4 times, the first move being to a new country no less. I have had a pregnancy loss and another daughter to brighten my day. My oldest started school and now she is in the 3rd grade. My husband is still in school, but he is so close to being done.

On the blog, I have continued to share crochet patterns. I have added embroidery and knitting into the mix, and this coming year I will be adding charts to all of my paid patterns.

This last year I have gotten more serious and professional in my blogging. This last year the blog had close to 130,000 page views. I did not install google analytics until April so that's why the picture is set at April. On Ravelry my free and paid patterns saw over 2,000 downloads. I'm excited for the next year and the patterns and ideas that I have for the blog.

Thank you for joining me on this crazy ride.
