500 Followers + Giveaway!!

The other week I reached 500 followers on this blog and I was mega excited. And then i realised the last half a dozen were spam email folloqwers and WordPress blocked them so I was under 500 again. BUT now I am actually over 500, for real this time, which means it’s time to celebrate with a giveaway! WOOOOO!!! Stay tuned.

Last year was an amazing year for me and my blog, I put a lot more energy into it than I had previously. I started posting a bit more regularly. I made sure I was spending a good deal of time commenting and reading and liking other peoples blogs as well. After all, interacting with all of you is the whole purpose of blogging. And I’ve enjoyed it all so much. Thank you to all my new followers for joining in.

My blog is pretty much split 50/50 between books and crafts now which is a pretty good representation of my life! And based on that, here is the giveaway. It has two parts and the winner gets both.




A listing of your choice from my etsy shop.

That could be, for example, a custom papercut card, a pack of greetings cards or a cross stitch pattern if you are that way craftily inclined. Any listing you want. Just check out this linky here to have a browse through: www.bluegeckocrafts.etsy.com


(In other news, I’ve also just reached 100 sales on etsy so double celebration!)



One paperback book from my top 20 all time favourites or it’s ebook*

  1. Congrats on having over 500 followers. I found this on a post on a blog group on Discord. One day I’ll get around to following everyone and keeping up with blog links. I love finding new blogs to read i recommend The Book Thief to the winner-if it’s not me.

    1. Hi! Thank you 🙂 The crone bloggers group? I’m the same, it is a little overwhelming to come across so many other book bloggers all at once!
      (I can’t see your blog, it’s saying it doesn’t exist?)


  2. Wow such an amazing milestone! Congrats to you! I definitely have to agree with you about the book thief, I think it is definitely my all time favourite book! It means a lot to me personally also. Good luck in your blogging future, onwards to 600!
