Tangle Mania

We are almost two whole weeks into the New Year and I’d like to say a special welcome to all the new members who’ve subscribed in the last few weeks.

I’m guessing many of you received a Zentangle® book as a Christmas gift, and now you’re hooked?

Also, I’m participating in Strathmore’s Online Workshops on visual journals and tangle patterns are so great for embellishing journals and scrapbooks that I suggested participants drop in here. So, a big welcome to all you folks too.

No matter what brought you to TanglePatterns.com, I love having you here and welcome to the gang.

Thought I’d share a few site stats with you all. As you may or may not know, I started this website in May of 2010. (If you’re curious you can read all about how I got into this, here.)

According to Mr. Google, since May 2010 to the moment of this writing TanglePatterns.com has had …

  • almost 30,000 unique visitors, from all over the world
  • well over 600,000 page views (wonder how long it’ll take to get to 1 million??)
  • over 4,000 people visit the free template DOWNLOADS page
  • over 3,500 people visit the ORGANIZE YOUR PATTERNS page
  • the pattern AFTERGLO visited the most frequently (naturally, it’s first in the alphabetical pages)

Bandwidth consumed by everyone visiting and looking around has grown astronomically as this chart illustrates in GIGABYTES.

So once again, welcome to the rapidly growing Tangle Patterns community. Please feel free to share your thoughts and tips on any page so others can learn through our shared experience.

And be sure to sign up for your own Gravatar (here’s how) so we can all “meet” each other in the comments, and elsewhere on the internet.

Onwards and upwards for 2011!

    I tried to connect with the Strathmore site, but it states I need to be invited. Suggestion? I am interested in what that means to be Online Workshop.
    Thanks again for the website

  • Congratulations! 2011 will be ‘flowing’better with tangling!!!!!

  • Moe

    Congratulations. I hope I’m a part of that. I made a point of posting a link to you guys when I did a 30 day challenge. This site rocks.

  • Linda this is a fabulous site.. and I’ll bet you’re right about all the folks that got Zentangle books this Christmas.. our household being one! My partner and I were out in Worcester MA visiting in November and a new friend showed us her Totally Tangled book and some of the zentangles she’d created.. we were instantly hooked and bought a copy of the book as our Christmas gift to share. We then bought the Zentangle kit as well, and some extra pens and a journal.

    I’ve been so fascinated looking at all the tangles that last night I even designed two of my own, based on some mayan art, that I’m going to have to try out.

    Thanks for all your hard work in creating this site.. great job!

  • Congratulations, Linda! You’ve done a lot to nurture the love of Zentangle. It’s a joyful artform, and you’ve helped spread the word in a really fun way!! What a wonderful community:)
