One of my friends, Michele, who blogs at Michele's Craft Room, is celebrating her first anniversary of blogging, by hosting this Blog Hop.
My, it seems like just yesterday when she started and I became a follower -- and here Michele is with just shy of 200 followers! Congratulations, Michele -- may we be blessed with many more years of your sharing your cards etc with us!
Personally, I've been blogging for about 2.5 years now, and have just crossed the 500 posts milestone! The other statistics for the CardMonkey blog are incredible -- there have been more than 200,000 page views, by 1,237 followers. Those statistics, and $5.00, will get you a cup of coffee at Starbucks, ehhh? (Stay tuned, and you may get that cup of coffee!!)
I am very grateful to those who choose to follow me and have inspired me to try new techniques and tools ... I get as much out of other bloggers as I put into my own blog. So to you I say, "Many thanks", with this card, at right:
So now for a little blog candy to help Michele's guests at her party celebrate:
A random commenter on my blog today will win a $10 gift card to Starbucks or Dunkin Donuts -- your choice! All you have to do to qualify is to be a follower of the CardMonkey blog and leave a comment with your blog address. If you don't have a blog yet or don't plan to blog ever, just let me know that instead. You're still eligible to win!
OK, so for now, I don't think there is anyone else tailing me on this blog hop, so I'll just leave you with my gratitude for stopping by and making my blogging fun. If you missed any stops along the way, here is a full list. Be sure you swing by Michele's blog (at the start) and "follow" -- she has some sweeeeet blog candy!
