Yes, it’s me again. I feel like I’ve been in your face a lot this week (and I have, with this post about social media suicide going viral, writing about my mother issues, then suggesting fun ways to remember your baby’s first year), but I couldn’t go today without posting.
Because today is my second blog anniversary (Blogiversary? Blogeversary? Blogversary?).
Two blogging years feels like the equivalent of 5 human years. I feel like I’ve been doing this for way longer than 24 months, written more than 500 or so posts, and spent way more than a gazillion hours on social media (oh wait, I have spent more than a gazillion hours on social media).
This date, two years ago, I started a blog on a whim, using a name I no longer use, which my husband helpfully pointed out recently, “sounds like a p*rn site” (why didn’t you tell me then, Husband?!). I had no idea what I was getting into, nor did I stick with my original idea for a blog (that lasted about two days).
I can’t imagine not blogging (and not writing posts without using parentheses – this post will have a record number of them, just sayin’). The thought of not writing, not talking to you, not knowing what you were up to, not getting my words out somehow? Unimaginable.
I won’t get soppy on you, I will just say, thank you. Thank you to each of you who have taken the time to read, to comment, to share, to be there, to talk, to commiserate, to assure, to love. Thank you for your friendship, thank you for making the last two years so much richer for me in so many ways.
What’s a blog anniversary without a present?
Instead of gift cards or spa treatments or jewelry (I haven’t blogged long enough, or maybe smart enough, to make enough money for that, sorry), I thought I’ll give away a blog evaluation from Little Love Media. If you don’t need one, maybe you can give it away to a bloggy friend if you win it? No fancy Rafflecopter widgets, or mandatory entries to like my Facebook page, or follow me everywhere. You just have to leave a comment telling me why YOU are awesome, and I’ll pick a winner with a handy plugin.
Giveaway is open to all, worldwide, from March 29 to April 1 (closes 9.00 a.m. Eastern). You may only enter once. Winners will be picked using And The Winner Is….
Have a lovely weekend! And tell me one awesome thing about yourself.
