Jenny Don’t Be Hasty is 1 Year Old Today!

Happy-Birthday Jen H

That’s right! I can hardly believe how quickly a year has gone, but this day last year (April 11th, 2013), I officially launched the blog as you know it now. I’ve had an absolute ball over the course of the year, and it’s been fantastic to see the site grow over the course of the last 12 months. The website has very much been a labour of love, though it’s taken a good bit of hard work to get here, it really has all been worth it. I’m still learning as I go along,  but I was thrilled to see everyone respond to the website in such a lovely way.

Firstly, I want to thank YOU, yes you; all my lovely readers, friends and fellow bloggers for supporting me, and stopping by and having a visit. I genuinely love reading all your comments and hearing your thoughts on all the posts, and hope you’re still enjoying the posts a year on.  I still consider myself very much a blogging “newbie,” so I also want to give a shout out to the fabulous blogging community (in Ireland and beyond), for being so welcoming.

Highlights over the past year include meeting loads of fantastic bloggers, being nominated as a finalist in the Irish Blog awards 2013, and getting an amazing 50,000 views and hits over the past year.

I have to give an extra-special mention to my amazing web designer Heather over at Viva La Violette for all her incredible work on the site design throughout the year, and to my super hosting crew over at Flywheel for helping me get up and running, and ironing out the few teething problems in the beginning – definitely check them out if you’re thinking of your own website because they rock.

Thanks a million everyone, and here’s to the next year! : )

I’ll be launching a very special giveaway soon, to celebrate the blogging milestone, so keep an eye out for that….

Would you like to see anything changed about the website going forward? Anything you’d like to see more or less of post-wise? Do tell all in the comments!
