Blogging Anniversary... Sort Of

I just figured out that I've missed my 1 year blogging anniversary by 2 weeks... I have officially been blogging for just over 12 months. Crazy!

I haven't really got any give-aways or anything like some organised bloggers do - so just thought I would acknowledge it and say thanks to everyone who comments on some of the random things that I put on here, and to the others that I know read quietly. That's all good too! Over the last 12 months I've met some really awesome people through blog land and reading all the happenings on your blogs makes me realise that I'm not as alone in my head as I once used to think. It's also unbelievably inspiring, I love surrounding myself with other creative minds, even if it is through cyber-space!

I started this blog as a way to keep sane, as I was freshly moved to Aussie and un-employed. After having followed a few other blogs for 6 months or so prior to starting my own, (BobbyRobin I think yours was the first!) I noticed that you didn't have to be the likes of the fabulous Design*Sponge to participate in this world. If anything, it's the seemingly most insignificant posts that people comment on.

Another reason for my blogging is to slowly build up my self confidence, and in the long term help to establish my place in the design/art/craft world. That's still the plan, eventually once I'm back in NZ in a year or so, and more importantly when I decide what exactly it is that I do, I'll make things and sell them and have my own little enterprise. My blog will go hand in hand with my online shop and my portfolio. In the mean time, you all just get to see the random wacky world of Nikki, and I hope you enjoy reading it.

OK, spiel over, back to whatever it is that I do.

Thanks fellow bloggers, I look forward to 'catching up' with you every day :)
