I’m so excited to be doing a one year anniversary giveaway. It seems like yesterday that I was pouring over the WordPress for Dummies and Mom Blogging for Dummies books. Learning the ins and outs before I took the plunge. Those first few nights when I set up my blog were long ones. I remember having so much fun playing around with customizing the theme and I still enjoy doing that. Only now it’s a premium theme! 🙂
I learned so much this past year and it seems like a whole new world opened up to me. I’ve learned more about the ins and outs of web design and HTML than I ever thought I would. I found a new passion besides blogging — photography. You will always find me snapping pictures on my phone or my nifty new(ish) camera.
Social media is one of my good friends. Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Google+ … I love it all and check in for a bit each day. My fave by far is Instagram. I love seeing what everyone is up to.
I wouldn’t be here without a few special people… My hubby for suggesting I start blogging, for supporting me, and letting me work away late at night on the couch next to him. Hilary for showing me the ropes and helping me get my blog out there and meeting my first few special bloggy friends. Leslie for opening up her corner of the blogosphere and letting me write my first guest post and for being a friend. BethAnn for being the sweetest, nicest person I have “met” in the blogosphere and for that awesome tea you sent me! The list goes on, I’ve met many wonderful people on and offline, but these 3 especially have been there since the beginning and they are still here… so Thanks to all of you!!! Luv ya.
I do have to say “Thanks.” to my kids for stopping them in their tracks so I can get just one more shot and for providing me with plenty of blog fodder. To my mom and dad for moving us half way across the world and letting me learn English as my second language… it is the most widely used language in blogging after all. 🙂
I could go on and on but I’ll stop here for now and continue my gushing another time.
I really just want to say “Thank You!!!” to each and every one of you who read my blog, who follow me on any of the social networks and who embraced me here in the interwebs.
Here’s to the next year!!!
I tried keeping the rafflecopter easy and simple. Good luck to all of you. I can’t wait to find out who the winner will be!
