The free pattern catalog has continued to grow. I have not made a complete count lately but it's getting close to 1,500 free patterns. I think that's the largest free pattern catalog on the web. I have lost track of free pattern downloads because the software that counts them died. It's a big number.
My youtube channel has grown. We have 13,178 subscribers and 6,857,635 video views. This is an area of the blog I have neglected this year. I really need to put up more videos. Youtube really helps the blog grow. Lot's of scrollers have found my blog through Youtube.com.
I was able to self publish my first pattern book(Wooden Vases on the Scroll Saw). It has been received well and I do plan to eventually put out volume two.
So far I have written 261 posts for 2014. That's 72% of the days this year I had the opportunity to share my passion with you all. That's down a little from past years. In seven and one half years I have written a post in 82% of those days. I'm proud of those numbers and I have enjoyed every minute.
I think my resolution this year will be to get back to at least that 82% number. That means I have to write at least 300 posts. I wish I could resolve to answer every email but I know that's not possible. I do try to read them all but I even miss that sometimes. Sorry for missing so may. I hope you understand.
I like to reflect back near the end of the year just to see where I have gone and where I want to go.
I hope I keep things interesting for everyone. Thanks to all of you for allowing me to have all this fun.
