Ultimate Blog Challenge Week in Review

Really? It's been a week already? I survived a whole week? Didn't think I would last more than three days, but here I am,  one week later, still posting!
Last week has been interesting for me - I found out I CAN write a post a day (but went to bed around 2 am every night...), I gained more traffic and some new bloggy friends, discovered new cool blogs and still managed to do all the things I usually do - work, kids and house (I even managed to continue the book I'm reading)...

So a post a day. Let's take a look at what we had here.

Ultimate Blog Challenge
Day 1, or why am I doing this to myself?

Polymer Clay Pendant
Day 2, I thought it was time to tell you a bit about myself

Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp by Joyful Thrify Home
Day 3, it was time to see what YOU are doing (remember the Pinterest Group Board? Just scroll down to see it)

DIY Sandbox
Day 4, I showed you our new DIY sandbox

Fried Rice Recipe
Day 5, we visited Taiwan and had some fried rice

Lade in Red Ceramic Sculpture
Day 6, it was time to play with clay

Share the Love Blog Hop
And on day 7 I invited you to join us for an awsome blog hop (you can still link up!)

And what's for next week? A trip to Haifa, another peek at our Pinterest Group Board, fabric covered binder tutorial, blog planner and A GIVEAWAY!

If you're not a follower, now would be a good time to start:) (on the top left side of the screen you'll find buttons to all of The Crafeteria's social media).


  1. I am so proud of you! Can you believe that it is a week in to it already? I know that it is increasing my traffic a lot, but honestly, I just feel so accomplished with the consistency of posting and its a release for me.

    I am so excited that I came upon your blog in our groups! Feeling truly grateful today!

    1. I know! I feel exactly the same! I was hesitant about this challenge at the beginning, so glad I decided to do it :)

  2. That's awesome, Tal! I'm so impressed!

  3. Actually, blogging every day seems very intimidating at the beginning. But once you get into the rhythm, it's fun. I speak from experience.

    1. I agree, in the first 2-3 days it was a daily chore I knew I had to do. In the last 2-3 days, I actually wait for the kids to fall asleep, so I can sit down and start blogging :)

  4. Hi!
    I don't think I'd survive this challenge because I'm already up to all hours of the night for regular blog stuff!
    Thanks for hosting the Share the Love blog hop! I'm now following you all over the place :)
    Happy Tuesday!
    - Ang

    1. It is crazy...
      I'm following you back now:)

  5. Wow! Great going. I'm sure I wouldn't have been able to keep up with a post a day, especially this month. But I'm enjoying your posts :)

    1. Thanks! I hope I will make it through the end of the month...
