Three YEARS!

Can you believe it's my three year blogiversary?

I started this blog the summer of 2008, before there was even a followers button and other special features (like "pages")!


Of course it's evolved since then. I used to be a style writer and had a shopping column for my local newspaper, so I did lots of "cheaper finds" and "style" posts.

My followers have definitely changed as I've transitioned into the writer I am today. Those that hung in and cheered me on (even though my focus has changed)--THANK YOU!

So of course I NEED to do a contest (especially since I've made so many wonderful bloggy friends--I HEART you)!

But I want to make it easy peasy--just your name and email address is needed below! You don't even have to be a follower. Besides, you should only follow if you want to and feel a connection with me. If not, no sweat!

So on to the prizes. You can choose either:

1. Any ONE PIECE from my hand-stamped jewelry site, TAGS-N-STONES (sorry, I can only ship to US or Canada for this contest).




OR

2. A query and 10 page critique.


Won't you help me celebrate by spreading the word and/or leaving your name on the form below (only if you want to)?


The contest ends June 30th!

HAVE A GREAT MONDAY!

Congratulations! How so super cool!

I have to say the prizes up for grabs have me questioning what I'd choose! Right now I'm almost done with my first draft so the query and 10-page critique would be brilliant but your jewelry! How could I refuse!

Decisions! Decisions!

It's funny the things we learn about blogging along the way :)
I was never an online chat person, but when I discovered blogging I found a whole community of other writers that are now my online friends. Love Blogger for that!
