Celebrating 1809


 My blog is 10 years old today. 

10 years ago today I started The Altered Page. I feel so very fortunate that all these years later, my blog is still going strong. I had no idea back in August 2007 where this venture would lead and am grateful for all the creative opportunities that have come my way as a result. I am on the ride of my life and enjoying every minute. 

I send thanks to each and every one of you for your visits, comments and support. I would not be where I am without you and am thrilled to be part of this creative community.

Some interesting factoids:

-My blog started 1 year after Twitter was born and 3 years before the existence of both Instagram and Pinterest. Facebook was already a toddler at 3 years old.

-In that time I have published 1,809 posts - which averages to just about 1 post every two days.

-Hey There Delilah by the Plain White T's was the number one song on the day of my first post.

-The number one movie that day was Rush Hour 2.

-It took 11 days before I got my first comment. Thanks a million Esmeralda.

-You amazing people have left a total of 35,986 comments on my posts (not including spam).

-I am still using the original template I started with, a canned design which I now look at as a vintage throwback. You know, kind of like a flip phone.

-Having a blog completely changed my life and has sincerely enabled me to be the artist I am today.


Giveaway:
How can it be a birthday without a present?

One person will win a $100 gift certificate to my online shop. Ten people will each win a $10 gift certificate. The random numbers table will choose. To be eligible, simply leave a comment on this post. Internationals welcome of course. Giveaway will close end of day on Sunday 8/13.

Thank you all for being a part of my adventure and journey. Cannot wait to see what the next ten years brings!

-------------

The giveaway is now closed. Thank you for all your wonderful comments. The 11 winners will be contacted by email.

Team Clark said...

Ha ha ha, hey there Delilah! Now I will have that in my head all day. Hmm, on the topic of your "flip phone" blog template, these new templates that don't allow you to scroll through post without multiple clicks kill me! The other day one would automatically scroll to the top if you scrolled up at all - ugh! It's truly amazing that you've come so far, but no wonder at all! Your are wildly creative and an inspiration to us all and for that - THANK YOU! :) I wish you every success and opportunity in the next ten. - Autumn

CONGRATULATIONS... Seth !!! Amazing milestone you reached. Is'nt fabulous how fast time has flewn away ? I guess that if you try to look back you dont understand how fast these 10 years have passed..
Thank you for always sharing such a lot of inspirational stuff.
Your own line of dies , stamps etc has also launched within these 10 years. And by the way I love and adore the rustic style one can achieve with your product line.
Thank you also for this generous give-away. So kind of you. ������
Now I'll wish you all the best for the next 10 + years. Looking forward to follow your blog for many years to come.
Hugs to you from Monica ....

Congratulations, you always have such great content and I love how it's not all about you - you selflessly promote so many other great artists through your blog. It's always a pleasure to pop in and out. I was wondering why you used the template that you do - stylistically it never seemed to fit with your own artistic works....now it makes sense and I shall look at it as you do, as a testiment to the early days of blogging!! Here's to another decade - and thanks for the chance to win a prize!

Karen Chatfield-Barnhart said...

Happy anniversary, Seth! Today also marks the date of my first comment and it's been four months since Vandegraaff and I met you at the New York Expo. I enjoy reading about your artistic adventures and look forward to once again when our paths may cross . . .

Susan Egge Haftel said...

Congratulations, Seth! Longevity has its rewards, and I hope they are mine. My take-away is the reason for the demise of the blog. I used to keep mine up to date but then got swept into the caverns of Facebook. Now I have a neglected art blog and two Facebook pages, one for my art stuff. Can't wait to see you at QSDS!

Deb Fortin said...

congratulations Seth on ten years of dedication to your blog. I know how time consuming it can be to maintain a blog ( I personally don't do it well) .
I have only been acquainted with your work since 2015. I truly love your artistic style and would like to be just like you when I grow up. (I'm almost a senior)
Best wishes for your artistic life. May you be blessed with many, many, more years to enchant us all.
I would love to win this contest as I really NEED some of your stencils and dies and ephemera.....

Congratulations on ten years of blogging, and thank-you for the generous giveaway. I so badly wanted to attend the workshop at Ephemera Paducah, but they laughed at me....even the wait list filled-up *sadface*....

Chuck said...

What a thrill to see this is now, that was then. I so enjoy your art creations and so happy for you that you travel the world teaching, creating. Just the other day in a group, I shared one of your stamps because when I used it on a page others were excited to create with it. Your art does inspire. Keep on being you to the fullest.

Anonymous said...

Congratulations Seth! Art and craft have been a part of my life as long as I can remember with the occasional hiatus when the universe demanded other things of me ... and I have just recently awoken from a sleep that unfortunately lasted longer than your blog has been in existence. But, lucky me, as I rubbed the sleepy dust out of my eyes, you, your works, your blog, your talent were one of the first new discoveries I encountered on my way back to the creative life. Thank you for sticking it out (and continuing to publish in a format I can still recognize). I wish you many more years of success and inspirational blogging. PS I am not really 'anonymous' but I don't have any social media accounts so can't log in any other way I guess. :(

Sally March said...

Congratulations on 10 years... you're just getting started. I'm a newbie to your work and this blog - so glad I found you. I'm signed up for your stenciling workshop in CT in September - very much looking forward to meeting you. Cheers!!

Kathi said...

Seth, Congratulations on ten years of a great blog! I don't visit here often enough, but whenever I do, I'm inspired. Kind of makes me think I should visit more often. Sadly, I'll forget that thought soon.

When I started blogging, I chose the same template, but switched it up a while back. For what it's worth, I still like the clean lines and graphic feel of the design.

barb said...

Hi Seth! Congratulations on 10 years! What an amazing accomplishment. I love reading your blog filled with so much inspiration. Thumbs up!!

I started with you in 2011 with disintegrating bundles. Remember that? You have been challenging and encouraging me ever since that project. I have been very thankful for your generous spirit when it comes to all of us who want to learn and grow in our arty efforts. Thanks for keeping on! A blog - plus all of your other involvements - is no small undertaking.

Wishing you even greater success in the next 10!!!

In 2012, you answered an interview question: "To me mixed media is freedom of expression. Freedom to use whatever materials and supplies that will best capture and express my idea for each piece of art I make. Art without limits." Thank you for sharing your amazing creations with us throughout these past tens years - you are truly an inspiration!

Hi Seth! This is my very first visit to your blog ever. What a great coincidence that it so near your ten year birthday.
I also recently, very recently bought 2 of your stampsets. They are striking and It's a really nice contrast to most of my crafting materials which could be described as pretty. I look forward to following you. Who knows! Maybe I will win some dollars to do some shopping here?!

I started blogging in 2008 and I found your blog some time later... amazing, that we 'know' each other for so long already! Congratulations on this milestone Seth, I hope in these days of 'fast facebook' that you will keep on blogging, I always love to visit! (and yes, 'oldschool me' still visits and reads blogs)

You have been a favorite of mine before I even comprehended who you are...I had already purchased your two books before I saw a Seth Apter Stencil Girl Stencil Club video. I devoured your art and style after seeing the results you produced. I found myself pouring over your weekly blog posts in amazement and seeing your picks and being lucky enough to be one myself what a delight and bonus blessing. Congratulations seems like such a small word to acknowledge such a large accomplishment. Sincerely MT.

Vinny Strawberry said...

Theresa Gonzales said...

Ten years in the blogosphere is quite an accomplishment! Congrats!

Kate Campbell said...

That's a great achievement. Blogging really does teach us a lot and opens up new worlds. Those little tidbits of information take me back. 10 years doesn't seem that long and yet the world has changed so much.
