Lots of nice things in the Shops listed it worth to check them out! Helping one another to succed is the greatest support you can give! Thank you Cyranny!!! ❤
I don’t like thinking about Christmas too far in advance.
But, a couple of years back, I got caught having to make most of my Christmas shopping very last minute, and I swore to myself “never again!”.
This year, I thought I would do something special. Since I’ve come to know many very talented artists through blogging, I decided I’d try to buy as many gifts as I can from their online shops!
That way, as I explained it to Chéri, we’d have lovely, handmade, unique gifts, coming from all around the world. On the plus side, we wouldn’t have to go through the trouble of fighting other Christmas shoppers at the mall, and we’d encourage wonderfull people to keep creating beautifull art!
So here are some of these incredible bloggers, and the link to their online boutique!
today I am celebrating a special day for me, something that I would’ve imagined was ever possible! Two years ago I started this Blog in connection with the opening of my first Etsy shop for the launch of my Jewelry designs collections. Yes today is “YesterdayAfter two Years Blog Anniversary!” ❤ So much has happened during these two years lots of new experiences, lots of art, lots of amazing connections only possible because this Blog. So much appreciation and encouragement I have received from all of you that follow me and so much encouragement I have the opportunity to give to support, inspire and motivate others that crossed my path here, it is so beautiful! Having this Blog became part of daily life there is so much work behind it but I love every minute. This is my open window to the world, the opportunity to fly and share my art , my photography, my poetry and everything I am doing in all my creative ways.
Today is my 14 years Anniversary here in USA
I just wanted to share this with my friends and because today it is also my Blog Anniversary on WordPress!
Happy Anniversary with WordPress.com!
You registered on WordPress.com 4 years ago!
Thanks for flying with us.
Keep up the good blogging!
After I signed up on WP I had my Blog active but silent for about more than 2 years.F I have been without writing or posting anything but working behind the scenes!
First I wanted to reserve my domain name yesterdayafter.com since I love it a lot!
At the same time I was working on launching my Jewelry Design Collections, my Paintings, Digital Art, Poetry and all my creative work.
I was only working on the graphics and designs to customize the theme and layout of this Blog reflecting my own creativity. I wanted to launch it as soon I was ready, but no word was ever posted. Some life events also slowed down the process. Then only on March 2015, I decided to jump in and I made a very small first post announcing the opening of my Etsy Shop.
I felt like I was a tiny drop into the ocean of the Blogosphere, almost impossible to be seen in between the millions of other Blogs, I felt so little but I kept going!
And you great people started to discover my Blog! I was posting once in a while my Jewelry and Artworks and I got very nice feedback! As Artist I express my Art and creativity in different ways, my posts are not always about the same subject. I work with different media and my followers showed appreciation and love for my talents. I actually like the variety between all the things I love! I like to surprise you with the unexpected.
“A Tip” that I can give to new Bloggers that feel a bit lonely and in need of friends and followers is to be active!
When I started, after a month that I got to see how it was blogging, I decided to go around leaving comments on other Blogs, and not just stay here reading. I let people know how much I loved their work and they responded to me beautifully with kindred words and they discovered my Blog and Art and started to follow recognizing me with Awards. I felt very honored for such a beautiful recognitions. Right now I have become an “Award Free” Blog but I am always honored from your nominations and I will post your link in the Awards Page!
In May 2015 I also created my own Award to pass on “The Starlight Blogger Award” I launched this Award to highlight and Promote Inspiring Bloggers and I am so happy that the Award is going all over around the world! I see lots of Bloggers that link to me using this Award!
Last year I decided that I wanted to do something to give back to this beautiful Community and help to bring Blogs together I started my weekly Meet and Greet Event this year is named Meet and Greet Fridays! And Every month I choose to Feature one Blogger and Blog that I admire and I am Inspired from, introducing them to inspire others.
I felt very welcome here I discovered amazing Blogs and Bloggers that are beautiful friends and I also had the opportunity to meet some in person!
I also found an amazing Community of Artists that is very supportive and inspiring!
I am stunned and amazed about the fast growth it’s fascinating!
…..THANK YOU to ALL…..
each one of you made this happen leaving your comments and love!
I am very happy because our strength together is very powerful and encouraging to keep going I am so grateful for you!
Stay connected and support each other good things will come and never stop dreaming!
Today I had a wonderful surprise from my blogger friend writer and journalist Romanus Ngobesing from the Blog Success Inspirer he made my day with this surprise post! And I love to share it with all of you! Have a wonderful weekend! Thank you Romanus 😉
Jennifer Calvert is the wonderful writer behind Ink and Quill she had a lovely and thoughtful idea, wanted to support the work of her fellow blogger with great appreciation sharing Poetry. Few days ago she posted Share a Poem on Ink and Quillhaving an enormous response.
The post was an invitation from Jennifer saying to “share a link here of your favourite poem/s, which you have written or a poem written by a fellow poet. Or both!”
I did participate and left the link of one of my Poems. Today she reblogged my Poem “Emotions” with precious and beautiful words she honoured me and many others.
Generally women can be fire breathing dragons, but this woman has always been kind and sweet to me. I have really enjoyed her uplifting comments over the course of our WordPress bloggership. I am making up words. She is a craft blogger and shares jewelry that she sells on her site as well as artwork that she creates. She is doing it all and is always a responsive commenter so give her website a visit!
Wow! Jason “OM” has been very kind to me and my Blog!
I am so grateful for the time he took on doing this review. I truly appreciate his encouraging words since he is someone that speak truly what he feel and very well-known here on WP Community and Blogosphere having an audience of 55.539 followers. He is very generous with his space and kind with new Bloggers. I truly like his Blog and what he is doing. My weekly “Meet and Greet” was inspired by his Meet and Greet Sessions. At the beginning of my Blog journeys, I left my link there, and that’s when I meet many of my dearest friends here. During the time that OM was not blogging I felt that something in the community was missed and I started my weekly Friday event is almost 30 weeks now, it became successful, something to look forward every week, also because I like to Feature on Saturday and support Bloggers that I believe in.
