One year ago today I posted my first blog post.
While I had been reading many blogs for quite a while, I really didn’t know what I was doing at all! I still love this recipe (given to me by my mom!). I really didn’t start blogging regularly until June, but officially, anyway, there it is.
I knew from being a regular reader of many blogs that the community was awesome. I don’t think I really understood what that meant, or what opportunities this little blog could bring.
The people I have become to know as friends are inspirational, wise, introspective, funny, intelligent. The conversations that go on in the comment sections, through email and twitter, and handwritten letters are amazing too – making me think, inspiring me to do, bringing laughter and tears – both happy and sad. Incredible friendships, incredible people, incredibly fun!
To celebrate my blog becoming one year old, I am hosting several giveaways in the next couple days. My readership has grown significantly in just the past couple months, and as a thank you to readers new and old I have several of my favorite things to give away in the next few days.
The first one? an iPod shuffle. A pink 2GB iPod shuffle, earphones, cable. You never know when you will need a replacement, or an extra.
