I’m a bit rubbish at anniversaries. I let my first year of blogging roll by uncelebrated. My 100th post pass unannounced. Before I knew it, my second birthday and 200th post had both been and gone. I was determined not to miss another milestone.
I checked the stats and according to my dashboard, I have posted 295 times on this blog. I was gearing up for a special post next week, but….when I added up the numbers in my sidebar this morning, I made it 299! Now maths has never been my strong point, I’ll admit, but that would make today’s ramblings my 300th post.
What to do, to mark the occasion? How about a little giveaway? I had a lot of fun putting together a little package for Sian’s Great Big Swap of Very Small Things. I was even happier that Sandi was so delighted with what she received, although that had quite a bit to do with my clever girl. You can read all about it here. You’ll see I have shamelessly stolen Sandi’s picture, as I forgot to take one before packing.
I decided I would make up three more packages, with an assortment of little things that could be used for scrapbooking or card making. Would you like one of them? Just leave a comment at the end of this post, before midnight on Sunday. The giveaway is open to all my followers, whether you have been here from my very first post or just found me today. I’ll announce the winners next Monday.
I would like to take this opportunity, to thank each and every one of you, that has ever taken the time to leave a comment on any of my 300 posts. I still get a little thrill with every email notification. I feel blessed to have blog friends who stop by week in, week out and every now and again to have a brand new name pop up, or maybe somebody that I haven’t seen in a while. You are all appreciated.
Not exactly what I was planning, but I did say the other day that I was a “blog on the fly sort of girl” and this post has been a good example of that! Thanks for visiting.
PS Please make sure that you are contactable via your comment. I have noticed that many more people are ‘no-reply bloggers’ these days. I don’t know if that is deliberate or just Blogger messing with us, but it makes things a little trickier.
