Kanelstrand's Top 10 Referrers for 2011

I start the year with gratitude.

In the last days of 2011 the web was full with recaps of past success, creativity and inspiration. I too had my share of boasting with the amazing readers and supporters of Kanelstrand.

But I was patiently waiting for the new year to begin to thank those of who by linking to Kanelstrand have opened the doors for their readers to come and visit us here. I am grateful for their generosity. Before we proceed to the actual list, I want to forewarn you - the following blogs are amazing, each in its field, so make sure you get to know them well - there is so much to learn from a bunch of creative people!

In this list I will not mention major websites like Handmadeology, Curbly, Craft Gossip, Ravelry, DailyBuzz, Moneysaving Mom, etc. that have all sent me a tremendous amount of visitors during 2011.

I rather wanted to direct my gratitude towards my new blogging friends and supporters, whom I admire for their devotion and creativity. In no particular order, here are my top ten blog referrers for 2011.
  1. Everything Etsy
  2. Bubby and Bean
  3. Rikrak Studio
  4. BIRCHseed
  5. ELKreads
  6. Epheriell Designs
