I was interested to discover this article by Lorelle which encourages bloggers to celebrate their achievements. Particularly relevant to newer bloggers who are still building their following, I would add that bloggers should always mark their blogging anniversaries, their achieved goals (50 followers, 100 likes etc) to celebrate their hard work and persistence – qualities that mark successful bloggers and authors.
Read and take note!

This is my 300th post. An accomplishment of sorts, I guess, although it took me years and years to get here. But along the way I have connected with so many wonderful people, which is the greatest gift the blog has brought me. I have found work, found love, had a nervous breakdown or two, explored ideas, and some days wanted to pack it in.
But most of all the blog has shown me that I am not alone in my peculiar obsessions. I have found that, all over the world, there are people out there who love textiles, and chickens, and gardens, and who are doing their best to help make the world a better place.
Big hugs to you all. And if you don’t already have a cup of tea or a glass of wine in hand, go get one, and let’s join in in a big joyous “Cheers!” to each other.
Use Heather’s enthusiastic example to honor your own moments.
