1000 Milestone And 2 Years Blog Anniversary!

Golden Sky – Photography ©Carolina Russo

Hello everyone,

today I am celebrating a special day for me, something that I would’ve imagined was ever possible! Two years ago I started this Blog in connection with the opening of my first Etsy shop for the launch of my Jewelry designs collections. Yes today is “YesterdayAfter two Years Blog Anniversary!” ❤ So much has happened during these two years lots of new experiences, lots of art,  lots of amazing connections only possible because this Blog. So much appreciation and encouragement I have received from all of you that follow me and so much encouragement I have the opportunity to give  to support, inspire and motivate others that crossed my path here, it is so beautiful! Having this Blog became part of daily life there is so much work behind it but I love every minute. This is my open window to the world, the opportunity to fly and share my art , my photography, my poetry and everything I am doing in all my creative ways.

Congratulations on getting 1,000 total follows on YesterdayAfter!
Your current tally is 1,004.

 

Two days ago I received from WordPress the message of this beautiful milestone of 1000 Follows today are already more. I cannot believe it! I would love to have all the 1000 in one place, it is lots of you and I truly want to thank you from the bottom of my heart, without you all this wouldn’t be possible! Thank you for taking your time whenever you stop here to see or read what I post,  thank you for leave me your beautiful comments and thank you for your amazing blogosphere friendship!
It is not about any number, I am very grateful for each one of you that from time to time showed a presence and that presence is telling me “I am here I like what you’re doing” this it is a great motivation for me and keep me going! I also want to thank everyone that purchased my creations supporting my art and my dream, it means the world to me since I am an independent full-time artist and will not be possible without your support! During the two years I have come across a wonderful group of artists and  together we are the “world watercolor group is nice to do challenges together, I have participated to beautiful worldwide art challenges like the World Watercolor Month, InkTober when I created my character ©Ylia and many more. I came across great Literary and Anthology Press and I had several of my poems and short stories published, also I have participated to Poets For Peace and have my poem “Peace” published in their Anthology. I am so happy about that.  Thank you to everyone that featured my Blog and interviewed me I am so grateful! I loved to Feature Blogs and inspiring people and once in a while lately I am interviewing other inspiring artists, bloggers, music composers I will keep doing this. As today I have more than 500 posts, 11.000 of comments and close to 50.000 views it’s amazing. I only mention these numbers to inspire new Bloggers that here great things are possible there are many of my blogger friends that have numbers way bigger than mine and I repeat is not about the numbers, but about your passion to love what you’re doing and that passion shows and shine out and that is what matter, love what you do no matter what if you have 1 follower or 50,000, keep spread love, shine your light and inspire others!

Stay connected and have a great weekend!

 

Thank You!

c599f0be1f4aa79f8c6321aa7953c89eI moved from Italy in 2002

Today is my 14 years Anniversary here in USA
I just wanted to share this with my friends and because today it is also my Blog Anniversary on WordPress!

anniversary-2x

Happy Anniversary with WordPress.com!
You registered on WordPress.com 4 years ago!
Thanks for flying with us.

Keep up the good blogging!

After I signed up  on WP I had my Blog active but silent for about more than 2 years.F I have been without writing or posting anything but working behind the scenes!
First I wanted to reserve my domain name yesterdayafter.com since I love it a lot!

At the same time I was working on launching my Jewelry Design Collections, my Paintings, Digital Art, Poetry and all my creative work.
I was only working on the graphics and designs to customize the theme and layout of this Blog reflecting my own creativity.  I wanted to launch it as soon I was ready, but no word was ever posted. Some life events also slowed down the process. Then only on March 2015, I decided to jump in and I made a very small first post announcing the opening of my Etsy Shop.

I felt like I was a tiny drop into the ocean of the Blogosphere, almost impossible to be seen in between the millions of other Blogs, I felt so little but I kept going!
And you great people started to discover my Blog! I was posting once in a while my Jewelry and Artworks and I got very nice feedback! As Artist I express my Art and creativity in different ways, my posts are not always about the same subject. I work with different media and my followers showed appreciation and love for my talents. I actually like the variety between all the things I love! I like to surprise you with the unexpected.

“A Tip” that I can give to new Bloggers that feel a bit lonely and in need of friends and followers is to be active!

When I started, after a month that I got to see how it was blogging, I decided to go around leaving comments on other Blogs, and not just stay here reading. I let people know how much I loved their work and they responded to me beautifully with kindred words and they discovered my Blog and Art and started to follow recognizing me with Awards. I felt very honored for such a beautiful recognitions. Right now I have become an “Award Free” Blog but I am always honored from your nominations and I will post your link in the Awards Page!

Starlight Blogger Award 05/30/2015In May 2015 I also created my own Award to pass on  “The Starlight Blogger Award”  I launched this Award to highlight and Promote Inspiring Bloggers and I am so happy that the Award is going all over around the world! I see lots of Bloggers that link to me using this Award!

Last year I decided that I wanted to do something to give back to this beautiful Community and help to bring Blogs together I started my weekly Meet and Greet Event  this year is named Meet and Greet Fridays! And Every month  I choose to Feature one Blogger and Blog that I admire and I am Inspired from, introducing  them to inspire others.

YA_Feature
I felt very welcome here I discovered amazing Blogs and Bloggers that are beautiful friends and I also had the opportunity to meet some in person!

I also found an amazing Community of Artists that is very supportive and inspiring!

I am stunned and amazed about the fast growth it’s fascinating!

…..THANK YOU to ALL…..

each one of you made this happen leaving your comments and love!

I am very happy because our strength together is very powerful and encouraging to keep going I am so grateful for you!
Stay connected and support each other good things will come and never stop dreaming!

A Two Weeks Review Of Gratitude And Blessings

Read about our beautiful Meeting in California and the personal experience of Erika 2 weeks in USA… ❤

Blogger Girls1 copy

Erika Kind

I heard sceptic voices regarding meeting bloggers in person because of a possible disappointment. My own experience was nothing like that at all. I did not have any expectations about the wonderful people I was going to meet. They already captured my heart for months and I dare to say that we did know each other by heart. That is why it was not necessary that any ice needed to be broken. There simply was no ice. We all embraced each other with arms wide open! We laughed and joked about all the things we were posting about. It truly were meetings between old friends! I am already thinking about my next trip. I will make it an effort that at least once in my life I want to embrace the people I call my friends, brothers, and sisters!
