It's my 1st Blogiversary!
I can't believe it's been a whole year since Second Time Mommy inspired me to go on this blogging venture. I wasn't sure how long it would last but the blogging world has me hooked and I'm not going anywhere soon! The blog has evolved a great deal since I began but it has a long way to go. Enjoy All Life Has to Offer is undergoing a bit of an identity crisis but maybe it's not blog and is actually me?! I am a pretty random person with a number of hobbies and passions that I want to share with everyone but they don't seem to have a common theme. I guess I'll keep plugging away and slowly but surely the theme of the blog will rise to the top. Once that happens I plan on doing some design work on the blog and possibly renaming it. Any suggestions?
In celebration of this big day, I thought I would take this opportunity to answer a couple of FAQ's in hopes that this will help each of you to enjoy the blogging world as much as I do.
Comments - I LOVE comments and I promise it's easier to do than you think. I know that about 150 people a week visit and read my blog and I would sure LOVE to hear from each and every one of you. It's easy, I promise and leaving a comment for a blogger is like giving them a great big hug. Ok, I've got you sold right? At the end of the blog post, at the very bottom, click on "comments" and it takes you to the comment box. If you don't have a google account and just want to leave a quick comment, just leave a comment anonymously and sign your name in your comment. That's it, super easy, and now let's practice on this blog post.
Giveaway's - I know that you are itching to practice leaving comments so I need to dangle a little carrot for all of you, right? Well to celebrate this special occassion, I am giving away a $20 Starbucks gift certificate so that you two can enjoy my favorite drink of the season, a Pumpkin Spice Latte of course. $20 bucks? That's enough for 4-5 lattes depending on the size you prefer. So you probably have seen all of the blogs with the giveaways and all you need to do to enter is leave a comment. Interested in getting your name into the contest twice? Then read on.
Followers - I love all of my 20 followers dearly but I'd love to grow that # even more so if you aren't a follower yet, what are you waiting for? Click on the "follow" button on the right hand sidebar and follow the instructions and you are officially a follower of this fabulous blog. Also this is really helpful if you have a bunch of blogs that you read because you can then go to google reader to see all of your blogs that you read all in one place. Cool huh?
So I hope I have you convinced to at the very least to leave a comment on this blog post so that you can enter the contest to win a $20 Starbucks gift certificate and if you feel so inclined, I'd love for you to become a follower too.
Winners will be drawn on Saturday, October 17th at 12:00 CST and you can only enter once per email address. I will ship the gift certificate to the Continental US only. Good luck everyone, I can't wait to hear from all of you!!!
