I started blogging almost eight years ago as a mother of a two-year old and newborn. Blogging was my creative outlet and a wonderful way to document my life with my growing family. I first started off writing a private blog only accessible to family and close friends. Over time my blog became public and I gradually started making connections with other creative women around the country and world. I eventually moved over to my SHIM & SONS blog and after many wonderful years over there, I moved over here in to my current space, SALLYJSHIM. There are some folks who have followed me from blog to blog over the years and there are folks that only recently tuned in to my blog. Whoever you might be, I want to take this opportunity to say THANK YOU for visiting this space and for the encouragement and support. 

And as someone who likes to ask a lot of questions when I meet people, I've been meaning to find out more about you, my friends and lovely readers. I've been reflecting on how to use this blog to challenge myself creatively as well as do some experimentation, but I wanted to know more about you and what brings you here. I've put together a short questionnaire (only 10 questions). And in return, you will have a chance to win a box full of Korean paper goodies (the photograph only shows a small sample of what could be yours!). The SALLYJSHIM / 2013 READER SURVEY can be accessed right here. (Thank you in advance for helping me out!)

P.S. I will close the giveaway on Friday at midnight PST. 

UPDATE // Thank you to everyone who participated in the Anniversary Giveaway Survey. The winner of the Two Year Anniversary Giveaway is Janie (#165). (Janie, I've sent you an email!) Hope to be able to give you all a chance to win more Korean goodies in the future.

Survey completed. :) Thanks for the lovely giveaway--I got all excited at the chance to win Korean paper goods and I LIVE in Korea, haha. The stationery stores here are amazing, partly because they're so randomly organised that you never know what you'll find.

I'm trying to figure out how long I've been reading your bog... maybe five or six years? It's been a while, that's for sure. I remember when j was just a tiny little thing. I'm not sure how I stumbled onto your blog in the first place, but I have so enjoyed following your work over the years, and I really hope to get the chance to meet you in person in the very near future! Thanks for the constant inspiration, Sally!
