As with all new ventures, our first year has been one of challenges, technical issues and trying to figure out how to put out a quality product and still have a life. But, it’s also been filled with successes and rewarding connections. We’re here to celebrate our first full year of blogging with you!
When Your Decorating Hotline started, the goal was simple. I wanted a site that offered free, accurate and accessible home decorating advice on any topic. That has been one of the major successes of YDH and will continue to be the mainstay of the site. By adding my friend Cindy to the mix, I really feel like you all benefited immeasurably. You now have the expertise of two experienced designers sharing all our hints, tips, secrets and advice – all to help you create a home you love.
Today is all about thanking and recognizing our readership for your contribution to the success of Your Decorating Hotline. As with any new blog, we started out with a subscriber base of one, me and one reader, my husband. Now there are hundreds of you following us and our subscriber base continues to grow strongly. It’s SO exciting to be part of a growing endeavor.
We have 3 giveaways for today. From us to you, donated by three generous websites. WUSLU.com has donated a $50 credit to be used on her site to purchase whatever you’d like. She offers one deeply discounted, distinctive home decor item per day. You could choose something like this:
Or you might win a choice of handmade pillows from the WordGarden ETYS store site. Her pillows are works of art and could become a great conversation piece in your space. Would you choose this pillow?
AutumnLetters ETSY store has contributed a couple of her photographic prints up to a value of $40. And what lovely prints they are. You might choose something like this:
Have you visited any of these 3 sites yet? If not, take a moment and feast your eyes on their remarkable products.
