I have to admit, I’ve become a bit of a numbers nerd.
Data and numbers never used to roll my socks up and down. As a matter of fact, I used to cringe when the word data was used. (Remember Marty 😉 ) But, since I started blogging, numbers have slowly become my friend. Numbers and I have coffee together in the mornings, spend some time together for lunch and say good night to each other every night.
In addition to checking out my blog stats, once in awhile, I check out Amazon and see how The Refashion Handbook is ranking. They update the ranking every hour and this morning, thanks to you guys, it was in the top 100 books in Sewing and in Fashion/Crafts!!!! The Refashion Handbook was right there next to Amy Butler’s book, Style Stitches and Clinton Kelly’s book, Freakin’ Fabulous on a Budget.
How “Freakin’ Fabulous” is that!!!!
Thank you so much for writing those 5-star reviews, buying the book and being excited with me. This book writing thing has been quite the adventure and it’s been fun to have all of you along for the ride!!
The other day, I received a tweet from the fun and talented Jenniffer Taylor (from the The Great British Sewing Bee) saying that she had just promoted The Refashion Handbook, live, on the British show Create and Craft TV. LOVED listening to them talk about The Renegade Seamstress in their British accents. I REALLY want to hang out with Jenniffer Taylor, I know we are kindred spirits!! (If you check out the show, click on the UK popup (not the US one) and The Refashion Handbook appears around minute 13.)
Stay tuned for some more exciting news……
(How’s that for a teaser? 🙂 )
