From my very first posts in April of 2007, and thanks to all of your wonderful suggestions, I've never lacked for material, only for time.
This blog is a labor of love -- it brings me such joy to find fun things, and to make friends in the process.
Ok, enough romantic sentimentality. I thought it might be fun to take a look at some stats about the last two years to go along with it:
- 316 posts over the last 2 years: 30 this year, 129 in 2007, and 157 in 2008.
- We've gone from 100 daily website visitors in August of 2007 (when I started counting) to 1000 daily visitors on a regulary basis
- 2500 of you subscribe via RSS
- There are ~720 (yikes!) items on The Steampunk Home Kaboodle list -- more added regularly!
Thank you all, for taking the time to read and share your finds.
What's been your favorite part of the last two years?
Discovering there was a name for everything I liked
Having my definition of steampunk both refined and expanded with the discoveries I've made here and elsewhere! It's made my own creations more thoughtful and creative. I really appreciate the time you put into this blog and the high quality of your posts.
That there are other people out there like me. And, we're a discerning bunch, I think. ;)
I only recently found this blog, but I immediately took a shining to it. It's given me lots of ideas, especially on the flexibility of aesthetics and blending styles. Also, I really like the word "detritus."
I found you through the Holly Black Library. I'm far too cluttered to have an aesthetic in my home, but if I magically got rid of the kids' toys, it would be Steampunk all the way! I sure hope you make some money from this labor of love.
Happy Birthday. My favourite part has been seeing all the fantastic things I could have put in my home (if only my wife was a steampunk lover, too; alas, if wishes were fishes we couldn't go diving).
Thanks for doing so much leg work for us.
Thanks for this great blog, and keep it up!
Happy B-Day, Sara! Congratulations on your perfect Steampunk blog.
Happy (be-lated) Birthday!
I seem to have missed it. Your journal is one of the best I've seen on the web. Thanks for keeping it updated and always interesting! We love it.
