Celebrating 3 Years of Blogging with a Giveaway!
Another year has rolled around. Can you believe how fast time flies when you're blogging? For some of you it was a long, hot summer (wasn't there a movie by that name?) and some of you barely saw the sun, let alone beach-worthy temperatures.
Either way, Fall is just around the corner and so wraps up another year for me in the blogosphere. No year of blogging is "just another year". There are things to be learned, people to be met and new experiences to be had. One of the highlights of this year was participating in a month-long writing marathon hosted by Nicky and Mike of We Work for Cheese. These innovative individuals decided it would be fun to come up with 30 topics and see how many people would or could post for 30 consecutive days. I entered this challenge with doubts, only promising that I would give it a shot since I normally post 3 days a week.
It was fun and most definitely a learning experience. I learned that I could take 30 random, off-the-wall topics and write a post for each one. Granted some were not the most spectacular pieces of literature ever to grace the internet, but I was pleased enough with each to post it for all to see.
After the high of writing for 30 straight days and/or nights, the summer slump hit hard, and it seemed as if much of the blogging world went on sabbatical. I'd like to end summer on a positive note, so to celebrate my third year of blogging and say "Thank You" to my readers, I am giving away a $25 Amazon gift card. One lucky reader will be chosen from a random drawing to be held on Monday, October 1. This is my first giveaway, so the rules are very simple. All you have to do is leave a comment on any post, starting with this one, through 11:59 p.m. September 30. Each comment will count as a separate entry.
The winner will be announced on October 1, following the Quote of the Week. Good luck and thanks for visiting Roses to Rainbows over the past three years.
