Dear Cute Hooters,
We can hardly believe it! Today we celebrate the second anniversary of our Cute Hoots blog!
Last week our Facebook page stats showed 865 monthly active users and as of this morning we have 225 Likes. We've had 101,506 page views on the blog in our 2 years. 10,942 last month alone. 418 this past Wednesday. How did THAT happen?
Our owl obsession started way back in the Fall of 1995 when we pledged the Gamma Beta chapter of the Chi Omega sorority and back then owls were hard to find, so we were always on the lookout. A few years ago we found that owls were becoming very popular and suddenly there were owl things everywhere, so this blog started out as a way to keep us from buying every single owl item we came across! (Nina's husband has approved of this outlet as their house was beginning to look a bit like a bird sanctuary - hee hee.) Somehow by having our favorite owls cataloged on the web, we could feel that we still had them with us. Fortunately for many of our readers, it seems we have created a bit of a shopping list!
We wanted to thank you for sharing in our little obsession and we hope that you will continue to contribute your favorite finds.
Now for the best part of our blogiversary - the giveaway! One of our favorite owls is by far the West Elm Ceramic Owl (see the profile pic on our Facebook page of us holding the little guys), so starting today through midnight PST on Monday, July 18 anyone hoooo leaves a comment on this post will be entered into a drawing to win one large West Elm Ceramic Owl!!!
