‘What I Made’ is nearly 3 years old – and they’ve been an exciting 3 years, the highlight however, was winning the 2011 Webby Award and Webby People’s Voice Award for best personal blog.
With over 10,000 entries from around the globe, just being nominated for a Webby is an honor, so winning both awards in my category was a huge thrill (an even bigger thrill was flying to New York to collect them). And of course, I would have never won the People’s Voice Award with the support of my readers and friends, and that means a lot to me.
‘What I Made’ was also chosen as the San Francisco Chronicle’s site of the week and showcased in Practical Web Design (the world’s best-selling magazine for web designers). Individual projects have appeared on Boing Boing, CraftGawker, One Pretty Thing, WhipUp and many other popular craft and DIY websites.
I was also commissioned by Mark Frauenfelder, the Editor-in-chief of Make: magazine an co-founder of Boing Boing, to produce a regular ‘What I Made’ column. I have also guest blogged on popular craft blogs such as Crafty Crow, and been commissioned to produce craft projects for Craftzine.com.
