November 8, 2010 was the first day I began this whole blogger thing.
This was my very first post.
At the time, I was very sick and was seeking a kind of therapy that I was not receiving elsewhere. I began to blog and I quickly learned that writing became the kind of therapy I was looking for.
It’s hard to believe it has almost been a year. A year of many, many changes. A year of learning and growth. A year of renewed hope. A year of learning how to cope. A year of making life-changing adjustments, while learning the true meaning of “management.”
What I think is cool is that this crazy ride of a year has all been documented. The various posts are here for me to go back and read whenever I feel the need. They are even here for my kids to read someday.
Blogging has also helped me to find MY voice, as I have navigated through this world of change.
So I figured, why not celebrate my one year blogging anniversary by having a giveaway? (Plus, I also think it is just plain fun to give things away).
So, here’s the deal:
If you would like to enter, leave a comment (on this blog post) telling me your first name, your link to your blog if you have one, and something that helps you get through tough times…(if it’s a song or quote, I’d love to know which one, as I am always adding to my quote and music collection).
…Or just leave a comment about anything.
Leave your comment by Tuesday, November 8 and by Thursday, November 10, I will pick a random winner to mail (for free) the giveaway prize. The only hint I will give is that it is something special to me that has helped me get through this past year…and it is gender neutral. Please be sure I have your email address to get your mailing info in case you win.
Even if I don’t know you, I would love for you to leave a comment.
