Happy 1 Month Blogiversary To Me!

Last week was my 27th wedding anniversary.   And just as important, today is my one month blogiversary!   Okay, maybe not as important, but pretty exciting to me.  I'd been wanting to start a blog and talking about it for over a year.   People kept saying, "Just start".  But I was scared I wouldn't be able to do it, or afraid no one would come.   You know, the old "What if you had a party and no one came?" scenario.   So I started off by BRIBING people.   Yes, I stooped to bribing and I'm not ashamed to admit it.

And here I sit one month later with over 150 175 followers!    My first giveaway that ended I considered a success with 176 entries, and I currently have three others still going on even after my BRIBE giveaway ends today.

My college daughter that's home for a month is writing a fun piece for me about summer reading for teens, and I'm working on other giveaways, posts about some of the fun things I did with my kids in past summers, and posts to help shoppers.  So I feel I'm off to a decent start.   Every time I see a new smiling face in the follower boxes I'm excited.

So one month down, and hopefully many more to come!   Cheers!
