Hey friends, as the year 2018 is coming to a close, I wanted to just pop by and share a quarterly update of stats for the website and social media. I want to be open and honest about what goes on here. This place is just as much your’s as it is mine.

Stats taken at 6:51am mountain time, January 2, 2019
Honestly though, I’m trying to not focus on these numbers so much. What I am more concerned about is making sure I’m putting good content out there for you and others to see. And, have a place where designers feel comfortable and excited to work with me. I know I haven’t been perfect especially in December, but it’s December, its crazy time of year anyways.
The last stat I have for you is Revenue. And that is $0. I have spent plenty of money this year, but have made none and here is why.
Firstly, all except for one, I have paid full price for the pattern I have spotlighted. “Moonchild” was the only one I didn’t pay for. But I look forward to supporting Oumi in her upcoming projects. I have decided over the process of preparing for this blog I don’t really like asking for freebies from others. Although I am offering free advertising to them I can’t guarantee a return in it just yet. My hope to be able to one day though. It is because of the lack of ‘return’ I want to pay full price for their products.
Two, if you haven’t noticed, there are no advertisements on my website at this time. That is also on purpose, for now. I don’t like the clutter that comes with it and the lack of control. But I do know that is usually a blogger’s avenue for revenue. My hope is to be able to find a better way to make money without the clutter of changing blocks on a webpage and those annoying pop ups.
What I can say is that this has been a year. A year of ups and downs but a year I will always treasure as the beginning of this place. Thank you for being a part of it and I hope to see you more in 2019.
