Wednesday is my First Year Blogiversary! It sorta crept up on me because I’ve been so focused on Tuesday, September 9th, when my “baby” turns 22!
In honor of both events I’m having a Birthday/Blogiversary Give-Away this week -- a leather wallet from Argentina! Nothing says “Let’s Celebrate” like a good give-away :-) In case you didn’t know, Argentina is famous for its beef. And where you have beef, you have leather. To enter simply leave a comment before noon on Friday. We’ll do this very scientifically and have the hubby draw a number from a hat :-) Obviously since I’m already overseas, the give-away is open to anywhere in “el mundo”.
Posting was rare in the beginning. I wasn’t sure what to write about and wasn’t taking the time to do it. But then a few months in, a personal goal to post twice a week soon led to almost daily posting. Blogging is, quite frankly, addictive! I’ve always wanted to journal but was never disciplined enough to do so consistently until now. This blog serves as my journal, a way to keep in touch with friends and family, and it’s just plain fun to be part of the Blogosphere!
Living in the southernmost part of South America, it’s doubtful I’ll ever make it to one of those amazing blogging conferences and get to meet folks in person. But I feel like I know a lot of bloggers just from reading their blogs regularly. If anyone had told me last year that I’d have friends all over the world that I didn’t personally know but communicated with regularly, I’d have looked to see if they were sprouting antennae.
But I’ve been inspired, encouraged and entertained by bloggers in the U.S., Indonesia, Thailand, Europe and Africa as they share the everyday ordinary of their lives. It’s like reading a serial novel with multiple characters -- you’re never sure what will happen in the next installment :-)
Thanks for joining me in this crazy blogging journey. And don't forget to leave a comment to enter the give-away!
