Next week I will be celebrating my two-year blogiversary! Blogging has become more than just a hobby over these past two years; my blog is a place to air my thoughts, a place to meet amazing new friends, and a place to share my life and ideas with others. I am so grateful for all of those things, so to celebrate my blogiversary, I want to show my appreciation to you, my readers! I helped my friend Danni organize a reader appreciation week several months ago, and I loved it so much, I wanted to host my own here at Her New Leaf! Here’s what you have to look forward to next week.
Ongoing: Reader pin board & project album
If you are a reader, and you comment, tweet, or Facebook with me, look out for your blog content here throughout the week! I’ll start with my regular commenters and get to as many as possible. I will check out your blog or shop and pin you to be shared with my 1600+ Pinterest followers.
I will also be featuring photos of reader projects that were inspired by tutorials found here on my Facebook page. I am doing my best to locate as many Her New Leaf-inspired blog posts as I can – thank you so much to everyone who has shared a project with me! If you have made a project inspired by any of the tutorials here, you can email me a photo at hernewleaf.kira[at]gmail.com, and if you have a blog or shop, please include your link as well!
Monday: My design process and a giveaway
Ever wonder what my process is when I design custom graphics for a blog? I’ll share with you the step-by-step of a recent project I worked on. I’ll also give you the opportunity to win a custom graphics package for your own blog! So that everyone’s a winner, I will also provide a HUGE coupon code to everyone who enters the contest.
Tuesday: Reader ads
Dream about gaining more followers or customers? Send me an ad image for your blog or shop to have it featured here on Her New Leaf. Send a graphic sized 125 x 125 px, along with your link to firstname.lastname@example.org. (Keep in mind that your ad must still meet my advertising requirements and no ad that links to questionable or offensive content will be included.)
Wednesday: My story of “going viral”
Curious about what my most popular post has been? I’ll be sharing my most popular post, what its success has meant for me, and how I harnessed a whole mess of one-time visitors into long-term readers.
Thursday: Her New Leaf: A History
I often get asked why I started blogging and how I brought my blog to this level of success. I’ll share with you a brief timeline of Her New Leaf and share the important lessons I have learned along the way.
Friday: Blogger Q&A
Got any burning questions? Want to know how I come up with blog posts? My favorite blogs? What kind of shampoo I use? Email your questions to hernewleaf.kira[at]gmail.com and I’ll answer as many as I can.
Which reader appreciation event are you most looking forward to? I’d love to hear your suggestions for how to make this blogiversary even more special!
