Biggest Month Ever & A Giveaway

If you've ever glanced at my archives, you can see that I've had this little blog since 2009. I posted occasionally in 2009, less in 2010 and twice in 2011. Apparently 2011 was not a blogging year for me!  At the beginning of this year, I decided to make an effort to post more often.

When we started our kitchen renovation in March, I started posting some of the remodel process and finally in July I shared the big reveal of our brand new kitchen. I also featured some projects I did around the house and started customizing Sweeter Still. The biggest change I made was to start sharing my posts through different link parties on some of my favorite blogs. One of the reasons that I love the whole blogging idea is because I think it's amazing that so many people who have never met can share their ideas and experiences.

With all that being said, July was the biggest month ever for page views on Sweeter Still! I got lots of cool comments too. Comments are awesome! Not only does it let you know that someone is actually interested in what you have to say, but it gives you a chance to find awesome blogs written by cool people that you might not have known before. Thank you to all those fabulous folks who left comments! And welcome to my newest followers!

Also because a lot of the traffic came from the amazing blogs that host link parties, I want to recognize my biggest referrers for July.

Thank you to all the fantastic people who stopped by to check things out here at Sweeter Still!! I hope you keep coming back and that you enjoy the visits.

To celebrate my exciting month, I am hosting my very first giveaway!! 

I have been reading The Pleated Poppy pretty much since I started reading blogs. Lindsey is awesome and so creative! Her blog is full of cool ideas (just check out the parties she hosts) and her shop is chock full of fun products.

I wore a white Petal Pusher in my hair during my wedding reception and I have a couple others that I have worn on jackets and scarves.

If I had an ipad I would definitely have one of these cases! Lindsey has a great eye for fun fabric combos.

The school year is right around the corner and this pencil pouch is adorable. Personally I see it holding makeup for mama!
