It's My Blogiversary



It's hard to believe it's been a year since I wrote my very first blog post. I have had so much fun and have made so many wonderful internet friends. Friends that help to inspire my own creativity. I have also enjoyed getting to know you through your blogs. It's so cool! I wanted to thank you for reading. It's a great feeling to know that someone is reading you blog. Right? When I thought about celebrating this milestone I knew a giveaway would fit the bill. What's a celebration without some gifts?!


Here are the rules of this giveaway:

1. Do not post this giveaway on your blog. This giveaway is for my readers old and new. Even if this is the very first time your have read my blog you are eligible to enter.

2. Leave me a comment. Any comment you wish and tell me how long you have been reading. The deadline is Sunday October 5, 2008 at midnight central time.




That's it! I have a few fun prizes that I am giving away. This is a peek at the gifts. I have lots of surprises up my sleeve. Whether your interests are a knitting, quilting, cooking or reading I have something for each interest. O.K. don't forget to leave me a comment! Good Luck!

March 26, 2008 was when I started reading. I went back and that is the first post I remember. happy blogiversary to you. Wow, time flies doesn't it! Keep on blogging. I enjoy your updates on just about everything!!

Andrea said...

Like Ariel above, I have you in my bloglist so it is hard to remember when I first started reading. Looking back through your posts it had to have been around Feb. Happy Blogiversary!!! So excited to see what else you create this next year too.

mari said...

You know, I have no idea when I started reading your blog, but you are in my Reader!

Happy Blogiversary!

How can it be a year? I think I remember your first post--but I didn't think it was a year ago! Anyway, I still read your every post, even if I don't comment every time--I'm still in post-busy season lurking mode, I guess. Happy Blogiversary!

Mim said...

Happy happy day! I did not post on my blog about this. LOL And I guess I've been reading since you found me and commented on my blog.
;0)No idea how long that's been six months or more for sure!

Quiltersal said...

Golly, Barb...I'm not entirely sure how long I've been reading your blog...The first time you left a comment on my own blog it was in March so I guess that's probably been how long I've been reading yours. I know that it's listed first in my favorite blogs, I check yours every single day, and I love everything you write! Happy, Happy Blogiversary, friend!

Debra said...

Oh, I'm so glad I'm a reader of your blog! Like you said, it is nice to meet new friends, and to be inspired. I just love it! I need to go back in your blog because I'm a new reader, and I'd like to know more about your life and see more of your knitting.
Thanks so much for visiting me.
Love, Debra

Debbie said...

Happy Blogiversary!
I went back to see if I could figure out when I found you...I think it was either December 9th or 10th 2007... Those are when the post start to look familiar and I can remember reading about those projects and other fun stuff! Wow, time does fly doesn't it! :-D Happy Blogging!

Eve said...

I just won a $100 gift certificate on Brenda's blog so I am not entering. I just wanted to congratulate you on your first year. Congratulations, and have a good time with this. : )

Grace said...

I started reading your blog when you gave away the malabrigo and I have not missed a day since! Even if you haven't posted I check in! happy blogaversary

Happy blogiversary!

I'm a sporadic reader, so I don't remember how long I've been reading for - I know I've been here several times before, though.

Wool Winder said...

Happy Blogiversary! I've enjoyed reading your blog since January.

Laura said...

This is my first time here - because you're the #1 Google hit for people searching for Dumpling Bag rings.

I'd wondered about using napkin rings, so I really appreciate seeing how that turned out. I'll probably go that way, if the bead stores don't come through for me.

Happy Blogoversary!

susan said...

i started my blog feb 5th and found your blog within a week, so that is what, just about 8 months! i love going on the little trips with you, learning about your farm and the area surrounding it. always a delight.

Natural Born Knitter said...

Happy Blogiversary! Wow, a whole year! I'm not sure how long I've been reading as you're on my blog role but probably around 4 months.

whitestone said...

I've been reading your blog about three months?? or thereabouts and enjoy it very much. I covet the yarn!!!!! LOL

whitestone said...

Laura is right! I googled Dumpling Bag rings and your blog is the first site listed! Cool!!!!

Jennifer said...

Happy Blogiversary! No need to include me in the prizes (as I'm still enjoying my wonderful Starbucks Prize!!). I just wanted to wish you a very happy blogiversary. My subscription on Bloglines says I signed up on March 27, 2008. Happy knitting and blogging.

Renna said...

Happy blogiversary, Barbara! I had no idea you'd not been blogging longer than that. When I first discovered your blog, I was so impressed by it, and thought you'd probably been blogging forever. Little did I know that you hadn't been at it much longer than me! ;-)

I couldn't remember how long I'd been reading here so I scanned back through your monthly archives. I discovered my first comment was made during your a previous contest you had. ;-Þ I'd read about your Spring contest on both Major Knitter and Wool Winding's blogs. I didn't win the lovely Malabrigo you gave away, but I did discover a great blog and made a new friend. I've been here ever since. ;-)

Juri said...

Happy Anniversary! I love reading your blog, but I am not sure when I started! Like you, I find blogging a great way to meet so many people, taking little peeks into their lives, sharing in the ups and downs of our lives...encouraging each other....makes my world feel so much more friendly!!

Hey Sistah!!
Happy Blogoversary whoo hoo 1 year. I don't have a date right off when I first came, but I'm sure glad we did find each other.. Hugz Lorie

Tea said...

Happy Blogiversary!
I'm a-tippin' my proverbial (expedition) hat here 'cause your blog is one of the more interesting that I read. We have a farm, too. Knittin' & farmin' in the same space..too cool!
I've only been reading since (you found my blog in) August. I appreciated that! My connection is just too slow for me to surf for blogs on my own. It's really the pits, but until we have cable available....

charli2shoes said...

Happy Blogiversary! I found you by looking desperately for knitting help with my first Dumpling Bag. I'm a brand new knitter and don't understand the pattern :-( Loved your blog, I too love to cook,garden and now knit!

Karrin Hurd said...

Happy Blogiversary. I have been reading for approximately 6 months I think. I really enjoy your blog

Kris said...

I have no idea how long I've been reading your blog, either! You're in my bloglines. That's about the best that I can tell you. :] But happy blogiversary!

Jenny Girl said...

Happy Blogoversary!
Well B, I started reading you when you had your last contest. I think about a year ago?? Something like that.
Anyway, I have enjoyed getting to know you and consider you a friend as well. You are good people!
Here's to many more years of friendship :)

I have been reading for several months and have you in my bloglines. Happy Blogiversary!
