Giveaway | May 2016

Hi and welcome to Drawn to DIY!

Yesterday, I shared a modern DIY using mason jars painted in matte black, white, and gold. 

Today, I'd like to say thank you.  


Drawn to DIY launched on May 2, Monday and to kick start the blog, I shared eight posts about DIY tutorials and free printables. During this time, I'm proud to say that the site has received 900+ unique visitors.  

Before you react, I know this number is relative. Some bloggers might find this number too little while others might be surprised in how high it is for a brand new site. Simply put, I'm just doing my thing here and I'm humbled that even one person would come check this out, let alone 900+.


Above is a metrics report screenshot taken on midnight of May 12th provided by Squarespace (the SaaS CMS I use). The right part shows what was live at that time—my 8th and final blog launch week post. The left part shows the site's daily visitors and page views.  

I'm new to this blogging thing. I've never even owned a blog before (unless you count random tweets on Twitter or posts in Facebook) so for me, this is amazing! 

I'd like to take this opportunity to celebrate this small win and share it with you.   


As a thank you, I will be giving away a set of three mason jars from yesterday's post. They will be gift-wrapped and shipped directly to whatever address you provide (local or international). All you have to do is:

  1. Follow @DrawntoDIY on Instagram - 1 entry
  2. Tag two people in this month's giveaway post on Instagram - 2 entries
  3. Mention your favorite post from the blog so far - 3 entries 

Deadline is on May 31 and the winner will be contacted/announced on Instagram and on the blog on June 1. 

If you have questions, simply comment below or email me at DrawntoDIY [at] gmail [dot] com.

Once again, thank you! I hope you enjoy reading other DIY tutorials and downloading free printables from Drawn to DIY! :)
