I really could have spent my Thursday in more productive ways. Instead I spent a few hours counting the total number of bags I have made since I started making bags in 2007. Previously I was too lazy to count but me hubs is such a nagger.
Here's the staggering figures:
I have made a total of 386 projects!
614 more projects before I hit 1,000.
101 shoulder bags
71 zip pouches
51 drawstring pouches
49 hair accessories
39 crossbody bags
13 wrist bags
11 granny bags
8 boxy bags
4 passport covers
3 phone pouches
1 pair of shoes
1 laptop sleeve
1 pin cushion
More statistics.... Recently, my blogger friend, Chris H posted some amazing stats about her blog. This woman writes about nothing yet she gets a lot of traffic. I don't know the appeal of Chris H to other readers but I love to read about her day and she does not sanitise anything and that's refreshing.
So here are my BRAGGING stats.
This is my 223rd post.
I wrote my first post on September 25 2007.
Currently I have 178 followers on blogger, 116 on facebook. I don't know the stats for my feed. I have had some followers drop out along the way. I'm a tough gal so no, I did not cry.
830 comments so far for my blog. (Thank you! If you know Chris's figures, you'll faint.)
My page view stats as I write this : 104,472
Some self written Q&A!
How did my blog come about? Me hubs saw me scribbling in long hand in my journal the websites I visit for learning how to make bags and introduced blogger to me. The LINK function appealed to me and I was hooked.
Who are my target readers?
Me. This blog is to record everything I did in my bag-sewing journey. This is why I put in my mistakes as well so I will learn. When I discovered with great delight that other folks read my blog, I started to include them, so mostly folks who love to sew bags.
The first few comments were from my kids! My son wrote the first comment in my first post and he used my account to do it. I kept the comment because it's so funny. I love to read comments but I don't reply every single one because sometimes I can't think of anything to write. Seems so silly to write, thank you for your comment, rite?
That's it for my exciting stats. Last night I managed to make 1 more bag.
Just a reminder, I'll be selling my bags at Singapore Art Museum for Singapore HeritageFest 2010 - Heritage Sparkles in the City. Details are below.
