Happy Anniversary Destination: Unknown!

That's right my dearest readers, Happy Anniversary!

What a long, strange trip it has been!

If you have been around since day one (and honestly, that can only be about 7 of you) - THANK YOU for sticking by me. For those of you joining up around March (when my followers really started "chiming in") I am super excited you are in my life and you keep the conversation flowing. If you are brand new to my blog, or just dropped by for the first time - WELCOME!

This little blog has truly grown and blossomed into the little adolescent blog that she is. I definitely started out as a baby blogger. Basic "Blogger" background, and boring template. Then about 4 months into it, I discovered how to find a great background and create a header - which I did. I added a few widgets, and off I went! (Full on Toddler Mode.)

In March I joined up on some really useful blogging network sites and BOOM tons more followers (child mode.) Then I got smart - got some help from a fellow blogger on a more customized header and a button and now.. oh now.. I am in full-on adolescent mode.

I am still confused about the rules of the blog hops, and the different memes.. etc. I just write, though haphazardly, I do a daily post.

I am ready to grow this baby and take it to the next level!

NOW - if you really are new (or an old follower and have not checked out my new tabs, etc.) - let me give you a tour.

First of all - Check out the new About Me Tab. This is a perfect primer on who I am. Then, take the time to check out my picture tab and my video tab. Both will give you a great understanding of who I am. Finally - grab a few recipes, make sure to read the disclosure and definitely - visit my best blog posts tab. Read a few - they are, in my opinion, my best pieces of work.

No - I rarely spell check and I am a horrible typist - but if you can get past that - we will be good friends!

Now for fun - before the end of the day (Sunday) - I would like to be at one hundred google friend followers! Maybe you can help me? Perhaps a little PS in your next post?? Just for fun, I thought I should have 100 followers for my new year. Maybe by year two - 200???

Again - make sure to check out my new tabs, read some of my favorite posts- and definitely stick around a bit!

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY to my little social media experiment - Destination: Unknown.

PS - I assure you, I still have no idea where I am going or what I am doing.. but I am enjoying the ride!

Happy Anniversary!

I will definitely add a shout out to you!

You've been blogging for a year! What an accomplishment! I wish I had found you earlier. Have a lovely day!

Good for you, I think it's great that you are growing and still interested in blogging.
The next post that I write, I will include a PS for you. I have been to your blog before, and I plan on being back again. I'm following you now on Networked Blogs so I'll see when you put up new material. I will go and read the relevant labels. Good for you! If it didn't sound so dorky,I'd say, "I'm so proud of you!" I am. I admire what you are doing and have done, but I sound all motherly and shit saying "I'm proud of yoU!"

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY NICOLE!!! Oooooo - how exciting! I'm feeling a celebration coming on! And the mention in my next post - you GOT IT, Sistah!! (I do believe that's the first "sistah" I've ever addressed to you! How could that be?) Have a wonderful day and best of luck reaching 100! you're getting so famous - I love I can say, "I remember her when ..."

Nicole said...

Thanks everyone - and Leanne - I will never be as famous as you! ;-)
