Celebration! 2 years, 300 posts!

Reading Time: 4 minutes

Time for a another celebration today, a mere year after the last one. Please don’t think me pompous, self-satisfied, smug or ego-stroking, but reaching a milestone 300 posts and keeping up blogging for two full years does make me feel quite pleased with myself, and yes, a little smug and self-satisfied. Perhaps not so much pompous and if I have a failing it’s probably my inability to stroke my own ego. Just kidding.

Yet here we are, with more readers, more viewers, more followers, more comments and generally more interest in what I’m up to. And it does make me feel rather proud, I can’t hide that. Most months have seen more readers, and the number of followers on Instagram has steadily risen.

So what has the past year included?

More travelling, more waistcoats, more trousers, more projects, more opinions and guides. And my Friday morning editorial and curated Instagram collation. And the collaborations that resulted in the WDD x Fracap boots, and the Indigo Village scarves. The Great Shaving Cream Investigation was another popular investigative series into the murky world of shaving products.

That important next step. #deep #inspo #inspirational #snow #footsteps #totally pretentious #moi?

And what will be coming up?

More design collaborations, more reviews, no doubt more opinions (ok, rants) and probably more guides. There may be more philosophical analysis and a turn towards the cynical, what with my early onset grumpiness becoming increasingly apparent.

 

Something I have noticed over the past year is that my personal taste has become more solid. The denim, tweed and brogues theme feels very comfortable. Looking around it has become more difficult to find interesting things, both when it comes to quality and design. This does make it more challenging to find topics to write about.

 

Looks like I've taken the lead over Mother Nature on the Autumn colours thing. #dadstyle #autumn #nature #paleo #tweed

I would like to thank everyone that has mailed, commented and generally given feedback over the past year. It’s your support that inspired me to keep going and I appreciate it very much.

I’d like to celebrate the anniversary with a small giveaway though. No requests for follows, or tedious re-shares on Instagram, just write something nice in the comment field below and I’ll select a random winner of an Indigo Village scarf of your choice. Easy, right? I’ll wait until 1400 CET Sunday March 1st before selecting a winner. Sorry! The giveaway has been drawn and closed. Lars in Denmark was the lucky winner!

(More info about the indigo scarves and other fine stuff I have for sale on the sneakily named For Sale page).

    My favourite Instagram posts all come courtesy of WDD. Interesting and insightful, your posts are always worth a read. I have been given cause to question your judgement when it comes to trousers in a couple of occasions, but I’ll let that slide.

    Congratulations Nick

    Takk for alle inspirerende innlegg! Jeg er selv en begynnende syerske og har hatt mye glede av å bli introdusert varierende tekstiler, spennende kombinasjoner av farger og teksturer. Ikke minst takk for alle gode tips om kvalitetsmerker her ifra Norge og Norden generelt. Du har i tillegg også bidratt til en økende interesse for Japanske tekstiler, mønstre og Indigo farging. God fortsettelse !
