Blogiversary (and a Random Drawing)

Happy Blogiversary to me!  Actually it was two days ago, on Saturday, but this was a busy weekend and I'm a lazy blogger.

Five years ago last Saturday, I wrote my first post.  In fact, I posted daily for four days!  That first year, 2006, was by far my busiest, blog-wise, with 152 posts.  Last year, I only managed 34.  I'm going to try to do a little better this year - at least once a week.

One of the things that makes me sad is that I lost a lot of comments from the first couple years, due to changing comment platforms.  However, I do thank those of you have been reading all along, and, while I'm at it, you newer readers, too - it's nice that you continue to come around even if I don't post very often!

So, to celebrate, I'm giving stuff away!  Actually, because I'm lazy, there will be one randomly-drawn winner.  Maybe Harley will draw the winner's name....  So, leave a comment before midnight Friday, and a name will be chosen next Saturday.  The lucky winner will have a say in their prize:  they'll get something from the yarn stash (but be aware that there's lots of sock yarn in there!) and a $20 gift certificate to either Amazon or iTunes -- winner's choice!

I know it not MegaMillions, but who doesn't love a little free yarn and twenty bucks??  All you have to do is enter by midnight (make that midnight central time) Friday!

Happy birthday to your blog! Congratulations!

Maybe you should throw your blog a (belated) birthday party. With cake. Yes, I think that's a wonderful idea. And since blogs can't eat cake, you will of course have to help out in the department.

Congratulations on your blogiversary. I'm actually glad you aren't posting as much as I'm not reading blogs as often anymore and I can't keep up.

Sorry I missed the prize, but that's what we lazy blog readers get!
