1st Blogiversary


Strawberries


Today, is my first blogiversary. Well the one I'm choosing to recognise anyway. My first ever post was way back in 2007. But I didn't really blog any further and even switched my blog to private until I resumed last June.  I hope to have a giveaway to celebrate in the very near future, but I've been side tracked by things like making Farmer's Wife blocks and going to my local Pick-Your-Own.  I could send the winner a stack of strawberries freshly picked by my own fair hand. Some how I don't think they'd be edible by the time they arrived. So I'll have to come up with something else.

On the subject of giveaway's have you seen this post?  I can see this being debated across blogland. It's a thought provoking post. When I get my act together give away wise, then it won't be sponsored but I do hope you will enter.

  4. Congratulations on your blog birthday! I don't really read blogs with big sponsored giveaways - most of the ones I see are just bloggers spreading homemade blessings. A craft publisher has given me some books to review and give away, but I was able to choose a book that I thought would be good, and in general I will only post reviews of books that I have enjoyed reading and usually they have been ones I have bought, or were presents. I can't imagine reviewing or giving away stuff that I wasn't interested in myself - it would be so difficult to write about, and would take away the point of my blog, which for me is just an expression of my personality and a record of my doings and makings.

    I suspect you have to have a lot more followers than I do, and quite a different sort of blog, to get offered those more commercial giveaways anyway!

    I haven't read the post you referenced. Judging from the response, I'll have to check it out.
    LOVE your strawberry photo. A popular color combo caught naturally!
