Merry Christmas Followers!

Merry Christmas to all the followers of Jilla!

Thank you to (in order of first followers)...

Izi, Cassie, Holly, BEx, Alice, Reb, Big Sister, Eloise, Kayla M-cake, Grace, Mariellahunt, Christa Moriah, Sarah, Rebekah Brielle, Ella, Bri, Neigh Girl, Sarah, Leah Mays, *Lizzy*, Em and Claudia,

For following this blog.

I have truly enjoyed blogging in the year 2011. It has been an exciting year for me, and it has been really exciting 'publishing' Jilla over the internet. Thank you followers, because after all, if it wasn't for you my blog wouldn't exist.

I found the most exciting part of blogging, is seeing a new follower appear on my screen. Each and every one of you has been an exciting addition to my blog.

I am now up to 2,569 page views and 25 followers in only eight months of blogging. I am very pleased, and I didn't expect to get this far already. So far my most popular post has been 'My Family and Schleich Farm' and my most popular page has been 'Blogs I Love'. So I hope this blog has also contributed to many other blogs by advertising.

I have decided to give out some awards. I will sponsor these followers for the rest of Summer (or Winter in the Northern Hemisphere) by putting their blog buttons (or a link) on my side bar. Plus, I will put the buttons/links on the 'Blogs I Love' page under the title 'Sponsor' for six months. I want to do this as a thank you present to the people that have contributed a lot to my blog.

Thank you so much girls! I really do appreciate it! And I have had heaps of other page views from many other blogs, and I treasure each and every comment and encouragement that many fellow bloggers have given me.

And once again... 

From Lauren
