A week from today is my one-year blogiversary. A year ago, I took a summer blogging class at Stanford, knowing that without hard deadlines I might never find the time or overcome my trepidation. At the end of the six weeks, I hesitantly tapped this tiny stake with its makeshift flag into internet-land, hoping to post bits of information here that might make someone’s day somehow better.
A year later, I’m happily attached to my little spot here in cyberspace, but I treasure most of all those of you who have come by to share it with me. It’s so very comforting to have friends here.
Won’t you help me celebrate? I’d love it if you would take a minute to share a favorite post or recipe from this year in the comment form below. To make it more fun I thought I’d do a little giveaway – comment below with your favorite post(s) from this year, and at the end of the week I’ll pick a random commenter’s name out of a hat.
Winner picks a prize from this exciting list:
- a butter bell! (choice of all white or painted floral)
- a cast iron skillet! (choice of 12-inch – wonderfully big but heavy, or 10-1/4-inch – the size I use daily)
- a $20 Amazon.com gift card!
Your comments will also help me out by giving me a little inspiration. A few weeks ago I thought my blogiversary would align neatly with my 100th post. But time’s been scarce this summer, and this is only #96.
So I suppose it’s fitting to end my year the way it began: with a friendly deadline. I hope you’ll be hearing from me three times this week before we celebrate my one-year blogiversary, 100th post and winner of our giveaway next weekend.
I’d better get cracking. Off I go…
