My Jigsaw Journal’s 1st Birthday!

Check out my “birthday” present to myself!

Happy 1st Birthday to My Jigsaw Journal! 🎂 I can’t believe it’s been an entire year. And to celebrate you can see I’ve bought myself a present – a gorgeous wooden jigsaw puzzle from Artifact Puzzles, doesn’t it look like fun? I’m excited to get started assembling it, my very first wooden puzzle!

One year ago I had just received an enormous package from Germany containing the world’s largest jigsaw puzzle, and had decided to start a blog to document my progress assembling it. Wow. What a difference a year makes; here are the stats…..

  • 398 posts (including this one)
  • 252 puzzles assembled and 233 posted (this includes each of the 10 sections of Memorable Disney Moments, and 19 puzzles completed but not yet posted)
  • 197,516 pieces assembled (Yes, I went back and added up the piece counts of every puzzle!)
  • 21 puzzles and 4 games “officially” reviewed
  • 1,360 visitors to the blog from over 52 countries

That’s craziness to me, I remember when I was so excited that 22 different people had looked at the blog! I started it just for friends and family to keep up with my progress on the 40,320 piece puzzle I had insanely decided to assemble. It wasn’t part of the plan to keep up with the blog once the puzzle was complete, but I found I enjoy talking about puzzles almost as much as I enjoy puzzles themselves!

This is just a tiny little blog in internet terms; I don’t have thousands of followers, but I do have fellow puzzle fans like myself who follow the blog to read and comment and I’m grateful for every one of them. Thanks so much my puzzle people! 😉

Special thanks to Puzzle Warehouse for giving me the opportunity to assemble and review puzzles for them, I’ve loved doing it. Most especially I have to thank my mom for being part of my Puzzle Posse, for being interested in and reading the blog every single day, and for helping to feed my puzzle addiction with her black belt thrift store skills. Love you!

Here’s to another year of happy puzzling! 😎

    I have been enjoying your blog for several months and just had to congratulate you on your 1st year!
    Love to buy new puzzles but thanks to you I have caught the thrift store bug as well. So far all the puzzles have been complete with no missing pieces!
