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!

From Zero to 15’000 – Some Thoughts on Building Community…

IMG_3227(2)
= Love

A wonderful post about Community from James Radcliffe, talking from the heart and soul just like his beautiful music! I wanted to share this because I can relate with it and because it is very motivational and inspiring!

Have a great Sunday!

One of the most frequent things I get asked is: ‘How did you build your following?’.

It’s a fair question.  A few years ago I started as everybody does, with pretty much zero support and 5 followers (2 of which were my mother who had signed up twice to make sure she didn’t miss anything).

Today I am a 100% audience-supported artist; I have a blog that is read in 170+ countries by a community of over 15’000 subscribers, and a Twitter following that is sitting somewhere around 66k.

How did this happen?

Read on, and I’ll tell you…

Congratulations on getting 200 total follows on YesterdayAfter!
Your current tally is 202.

 

Thank you so much to all of you that decided to follow my Blog!

I had my Blog active for about 2 years I sign up on WP in 2013 without post anything!
I was only working on the graphics and designs to fully customize it and no words was ever posted.
The purpose was to create more of a website dedicate to promote my Art and Jewelry since this is my full-time daily job.
Then one day at the end of March I decided to jump in.
I felt like I was a drop in the ocean almost impossible to be seen there were many beautiful blogs.
On June 21 2015 I hit the 100 Followers Milestone…It was an amazing accomplishment!
I felt so welcome here and loved and it is so great,  that we can share and encourage each other!
Yesterday the 200 Milestone is arrived!
I am stunned and amazed about the fast growth it’s fascinating!

…..THANK YOU to ALL…..I am very grateful and thankful for your presence and support….
each one of you made this happen with me!

I am very happy our strength together it’s very encouraging to keep going…

 

Have a wonderful Saturday!

Later on a new FEATURED is on the way! 😉

I started to work graphically on this blog at first as website only in August 2013.
I wanted to create mostly a portfolio website for my artistic creations and display my Art. I enjoyed creating all the graphics collages and images you see on here like the header image on the front page. Life events came on my way and I had to take a break for a while.
I never posted as blog anything until this year on the 03/24/2015 with my “New Update” very short post, from that day as today over only 2 months later I enjoyed this Blog very much!
I came across amazing people creative artists, musicians, writers, other jewelry makers and amazing photographers it is very inspiring be able to share  thoughts on a daily basis with amazing people I am so grateful for all the amazing journey here in this great community. Many of you become friends which I love to interact with.
I know 50 followers are not 500 or 5.000 or 50.000 but it has the same meaning to me!

It is the start of something great coming that can only evolve more and more….

Enjoy with me as you will come along the way of my journey….
