Gearing Up For The Big Day

I can hardly believe it. 
Come January 24th, I will have been blogging for exactly one year!

To show my appreciation, I decided to host a giveaway this month. I'm posting the Rafflecopter form today so all you faithful blog visitors can start signing up. Then I'll announce the winners on the official anniversary date.  

I also decided this would be perfect to pair with L.G. Keltner's Beginnings Blogfest.


In the interest of keeping it short and sweetand getting you to that Rafflecopter as quickly as possible (C'mon. Admit it. That's the reason you're still reading. :P)—I decided to link my very first blog post and a guest post I did about my blogging experiences.  If you've never read them, click on over. :)

*whistles and looks around* 

Good. You're back. 

Now enter the drawing below for a chance to win some neat prizes! 
I'll announce the winners on the official blogiversary dayThursday, January 24th. :D 


1-23-13 Update
Deadline for entering the giveaway is over. 
(Rafflecopter gadget moved to tomorrow's post.)
I'll announce the winners then.
Good luck!

  1. Giveaways rock! And happy early blogoversary! After reading your first blog post, I'm ashamed of how amateurish my first one was. Yours had a great voice, and I felt so unsure of what I was writing. Oh well. We all have to start somewhere!

    Thanks for joining my blogfest!

  17. Yay for you and one year coming up! I began blogging in July of 2012, but first started with Wordpress. When I switched over to Blogger, I think a few posts got lost in the transfer. But it might be fun to go digging around and see what I posted. :)

    You've certainly delivered what you intended your blog to do. I quote, "is to post helpful and interesting things for my followers to read." I had to giggle about the self-promotion line, too. :)

  23. You were much more self-assured than I was when I started. Knowledgeable, with direction and insight. I wrote my first post, then stared at a blank page for a year and a half!

    Congrats on your anniversary! The first one is what? The flash drive anniversary? Kudos for making it so informative and entertaining.
