Another Year, Another Blogiversary!

“Laughter is timeless, imagination has no age, dreams are forever.”
- Walt Disney

Blog-a-versary (noun) - the anniversary of one's first blog post.

It's July 27th...which means cheers for TWO years here at The Young Sewphisticate!  So much has happened since its beginning, and, looking back on it all, I am left with such overwhelming gratitude.  It gives me great pleasure to write about my interests in historical clothing and its reproduction - and the fact that people actually take the time to read and encourage my amateur sewing adventures, makes me smile wider than ever before.  Every single like, comment, share and subscription has been greatly appreciated and keeps me blogging - THANK YOU!

For further fun, let's take a look at these amazing blog statistics: 
  • We've had a grand total of 19,710 pageviews, which means 13,385 views in this year alone!  
  • 31 fabulous followers on Blogger & 21 more through Bloglovin' 
  • New this year is the Facebook companion page, where 120 friends have joined in the sewing adventures
  • Finally, there have been 115 posts with 246 comments in all published

Have I mention how grateful I am for all of your support?!  It makes me want to jump-up-and-down, shout for joy & twirl around the room!  In fact, here are some pictures of me doing just that - twirling in 1820s clothing: 

Out of breath and a little dizzy from all of the twirling, I must thank you again.  If you've liked what you've seen here over the past two years, and would like to continue following my sewing adventures, please consider commenting, subscribing and/or sharing (if you haven't already)...and stay tuned for the upcoming 2 year blogiversary giveaway!

Your thoughts, suggestions & support are always appreciated on this journey!

  2. Happy Blog-iversary!! :) You are such a talented and inspiring seamstress; I always love reading your posts and seeing what you've made!! The way you take such care with your sewing (and have such patience for all the hand-sewing that you do!) is very inspirational. I have not been a very faithful commenter, but it's not for lack of enjoying your gorgeous makes. Congratulations, and best wishes on the next year of blogging!! :)
    P.S. Your 1820s outfit is stunning!!
