It's me, big head, again

Interweb, you are lovely; I truly thank you for your considered input after yesterday's post. Here's the result of my long and thoughtful rambling; I've deleted the inbox enquiries. If they aren't craft related there's no point, and actually, although I'm not and never set out to be some sort of consumer's champion, I do love the freedom of opinion that blogging (responsibly) allows me. And it'll be less work!
The completely unexpected part of my scientific survey was the nice things you said about the blog - Cardarian considers it a 'friendship' blog, which has to be a top compliment to all of you reading, commenting and visiting each other. NicandAlfie doesn't have a blog (yet) but took the time to leave a comment implying that she enjoys coming round for a read and Sheila at SD Crafts really was guru-esque. Mostly though, you were flattering, and so I need to express thanks for that. And honestly, that's not what the post was for - hell you know me - if I wanna be flattered, I'll make up a post about how great I am. After all, I think you'll find I'm a whole bunch of pointless acronyms and that's very successful! WOYWW doer/DCMDTGD/BIGHEAD. Works for me!

Ooh and the card that looks like it's floating - Inkadinkado bird stamp, Hero Arts branch stamp (again) TH ticket die and DO foil kit. Can't remember the DP, sorry.

I was just dropping in to comment on yesterday's post - I read it on my phone, but commenting through that is such a time consuming process, I tend to wait until I'm on the computer proper. Personally, you know I love your blog! It's extraordinary the way WOYWW and all that has taken off, and your super stats are a credit to you and your engaging style of writing. Although you've made your decision now, I was just going to say that you should do whatever makes you happy - it's your blog, do what you like. If someone wants to send you a little something, fantastic, you deserve it. But if you feel like it makes you obligated to say/blog/do anything, then to hell with it. This is meant to be fun, after all!

As always, your ethics and honesty are what keep us coming back. And of course all the DCMDTGD/WOYWTHISWEEK/WHOKNOWS acronyms are always so much fun to try to decipher!

Angie said...

Missed your last post ...screen kept shuting off ...found the fault ...well strickly speaking DD did.

Who knows why one particular blog or idea takes off ...I think it is the vibes that emimates and the friendship that oozes forth from its originater. It is the feeling too, that there is no preasure ...no compettion ...just loads of fun, and love and caring amongst its family.

Love the card XX

Karen said...

Awe Julia, Just looking up through the comments here I can see so many people that I am now in contact with and its all down to you & your lovely blogging my lovely! Blogging is definitely about friendship, especially for peeps like me who can't get out as much as we would like. So a BIG THANK YOU to you XXXX

ooops....nearly forgot...I am loving that card, even if it can fly! XXX

Cath said...

Just read the last post and I think that you should advertise panty liners on your blog, I know the way you have me almost wetting myself with laughter at times you would make a fortune.....
I love your blog it is one I come to first on most days and I have "met" some very nice folks through you.
See you tomorrow

Cathx

Kaz said...

You keep doing what you're doing Julia the way you're doing it cos it's fab by me. Love your card xxx

minnie_mac said...

Love this piece with bootiful birdies on branch.

Very interesting to read your thoughts and those of blog friends in this and the previous post. I often find that thinking out loud and sleeping on it tends to bring clarity to a question that arises.

I so enjoy your thinkings aloud in all your posts, and joining in with the WOYWW friends.

The thought process must have made you creative - I LOVE that card!!! It's a gorgeous design and I may just have to borrow it if you don't mind. Fab idea. As for the rest of it - good for you! That's all I can say. I love what you've done here.
