Sometime in the beginning of January, I published my 1,000th post on this blog.* I had grand plans of this post being exactly my 1000th post but in all the flurry of posting about Christmas sewing, reading, and Mark’s birthday, and then life, it slipped by me. (This is technically my 1,045th post!)
So, in celebration of more than 1,000 posts, I’m giving something away!
In the past year or so, I’ve heard from a couple readers who have been reading a long time but haven’t ever left a comment. In the blog world, that’s called, “lurking,” and I don’t mind that at all. But still, I figured I’d encourage you to de-lurk with a prize!
The prize: something made by me (like cookies, a loaf of bread, something sewn, or something canned) OR a lesson in something I know how to do (i.e. sewing, canning, baking) (if you live close enough to me to come over for a lesson). After I pick the winner, you and I can talk about what you’d like to have. Ultimately, your prize will be at my discretion, based on how crazy my life is, whether or not I have to mail it, etc. International readers are welcome to enter too but your prize will have to be something lightweight that fits in an envelope – so I’ll probably make you some cards or something like that. (Card making is another love of mine but one that I don’t think I’ve ever blogged about!)
How you enter: Leave a comment on this post, telling me something you like about my blog or something you wish I’d write more about. Only comments on this post will count so all my Facebook commenters, find a way to comment on the real blog!
Also, if you have a couple extra minutes, please indulge me by filling out this little survey. You can get a second chance to enter by leaving another comment, saying “I filled out the survey!”
I’ll leave the giveaway open until Monday, 3/24/14 at 1:30 pm EST. Now closed! I’ll post a winner soon!
I’ll choose the winner randomly by some method that may perhaps involve these two cuties:
I’m looking forward to “meeting” some of you for the first time and hearing from many more of you! And thank you for reading!
*I blogged for almost five years with Xanga before starting this blog. That site is now inactive but I just recently found out that I can import all my Xanga posts into WordPress. So hopefully, this blog will soon have many, many more than 1,000 posts!
