It's My Blogiversary & A Giveaway!

I officially launched my site a year ago today and I must say it has been a very rewarding experience. I have learned so much about myself.  I have met some fabulous bloggers and made some amazing friends.  I have also grown as a writer.  

I am still learning new things every day.  I am nowhere near where I would like to be.  I embarked on this mission as a hobby, but who knows where it may lead.  I'm definitely in it for the long haul.  

In celebration of this momentous event, I would like to offer you a giveaway.  But, before that, I’d like to say Thank you!  For those of you who visit my blog regularly, thank you for your support and encouragement.  Thank you for the sweet comments. Thank you for walking with me on this journey. To the friends I have made along the way, you have made this journey easier than you know. 

Let’s take a look at year one and how much she has grown. 

Most Viewed Post of the Year:  Probably my shortest and least thought out post.  I kept coming across this picture in my phone and knew that I wanted to share it, but how?  Finally, this post evolved.  

Posts I wished received more love:  I was so psyched about starting my site and couldn’t wait to share with others.  Yet, I didn’t know anything about  link-ups so I didn’t get much traffic in the beginning.  There are a few posts I wished received more love and they can be found herehere, and here.  

Most Personal Post:  I really opened up about some of the pain in my life with this one.  It’s never easy to lose those that are close to you.  Hoping others will find some strength in dealing with whatever they are dealing with. 

Most Commented Post: Sometimes it’s the simplest post you create that catch readers’ attention.  The ones we least expect.  I would love to have comments on all of my post, but this one received the most.

My First Post Ever:  This was my baby and I was one proud momma.  This post didn’t receive enough love as well because I knew nothing about blogging or getting my page out there.  The few people who came across it were very positive and encouraging.  Today is its first birthday so let’s show it some love! J  

Now on to the giveaway!  Today I'm offering you a few of my favorite things.  Its just a little something to let you know how much I appreciate all of you!  :)

The giveaway will run from 8/27/15 - 9/6/15 and is open to US Residents only.  The winner will be notified by email and will have 48 hours to respond or a new entrant will be chosen.  Entries will be verified. The winner will be announced on the evening of 9/8/15 so good luck!
