I won’t bore the loyal follower with the story of how this blog began as a commission painting site and evolved into what it is today – they’ve already heard it ;)
Plus, that about covers the story too.
In June Creative Twilight turned 10. I’ve been so busy that I totally missed it and here we are in July. I don’t normally acknowledge the blog’s birthday but I figured 10 was something worth noting!
Like every hobbyist blogger out there, there have been days where I thought about hanging it all up and walking away. Not from the hobby but the blog.
It’s a lot of time and effort to reach a modicum of success in this industry; at least it has been for me. Anyone who blogs, or has blogged, will know what I’m talking about. However, I’m stubborn and persistent and likely I’ll never go anywhere.
Also, I’ve seen some tremendous growth here at Creative Twilight over the past year. I’ve been blogging less but putting in more effort in what I create and that seems to have been the trick all along. It’s the old adage of quality over quantity, but sometimes you have to learn the hard way. I learn all my lessons that way I’m afraid.
I don’t want to make this a long rambly article, so I just wanted to say thank you to those of you who read the stuff I write, as well as what the other authors here are contributing. I truly enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with you all, and I’m glad there’s an audience for it.
So, thank you, everyone!

What an inspirational site this has been and all. Thank you Thor for all your work on this.
Thank you. I really appreciate it.
Congrats! Well done! Such a great site, always good to get a new article from you pop into my inbox!
Thank you. That’s great to hear.
Very impressive! Congrats, and may there be many more!
Yeah! Well done! Maintaining the site over ten years is an achievement in itself. I’m glad to see that all the work is paying off.
Thanks! It’s equal parts of enjoyment and frustration most days but totally worth it.
Happy blog day!!! 😀
Keep the good work going, this site is a constant place I visit, and I always look forward to your posts.
Know what you mean about giving up on the blogging, I am struggling with it at the mo. Doesn’t help that life is so busy I barely get to hobby anymore
Thank you and the feeling is mutually; I always look forward to new articles by you.
I know what you mean – going through that myself right now (busy). I do find the downtime though seems to help with focus though when you get back to it; just sucks in the meantime.
Great stuff, keep going, I think WeeMen turns 10 later this year too :)
Thank you and I had no idea WeeMen was nearly 10 too. Crazy! Where does the time go?
Congratulations on your decade of hobby blogging – you’ll outlive us all ;)
Thanks and If I do outlive everyone it’s only because I’m too stubborn ;)
