Today I am honored to be joining the one year blogiversary celebration of one of the loveliest, wittiest, friendliest and most successful bloggers I know: Janine at Confessions of a Mommyaholic. This lady has a versatile repertoire, with stories about mommyhood, fashion and beauty, recipes to delight, tales of marriage and family, helpful reviews, and more. And she is one of the most supportive people you will ever meet.
In honor of her blogiversary, a few of us banded together to offer a CASH GIVEAWAY of $400! That’s a lot of birthday cake!! And on top of that, you can join Janine’s fabulous Finish the Sentence Friday blog hop, with the linkup conveniently located just below the giveaway entry form. Janine kindly got us started, as she finishes this week’s sentence:
The bravest thing I have ever done…
Becoming a blogger, because I still can’t believe some of the things I have shared about myself and my family on the Internet. I was definitely scared slightly to share so much of myself and family for all to see, but again I did it.
And I shared all sorts of tales, like the potty training journey for my youngest, posting about how we survived Hurricane Sandy a year ago, about not always dressing up to par anymore being a stay at home mom, and even how Lily played in the toilet bowl and even my huge mess up trying to make cake pops for the very first time!
But a year ago today, I took to transferring my little WordPress blog to my own hosted domain name. Therefore today, is my one year blogiversary.
I was actually sick on the day I decided to do this, but was still very determined to make this switch.
And again, I did just that. I learned so much during the setup process and remember wanting and yearning to learn more. Not only did I learn and teach myself so much as far as coding and design, but I was able to create another little niche on the Internet for myself with J9 Designs , too.
Also, I made so many connections. In the beginning, I was told me to make sure to reach out to as many other bloggers through commenting and social media. I took that very seriously and still do.
Because of this, I have been blessed to meet so any wonderful bloggers and writers this way. Many of which I have never laid eyes on personally, but do consider to be friends. I couldn’t be more thankful for this.
And when I put out the announcement earlier this month for interest in participating in my one year blogiversary giveaway, I was blown over by the massive amount that did join in and all the well wishes.
I truly felt so loved and so happy that I would be able to giveaway such an awesome prize, because of all those lovely bloggers who have joined.
