I went into my dashboard and yesterday's post was my 100th! blog post!
Last February I set up an account so I could post on Nikki Stafford's blog. That was my entire reason for doing this. I had kept a Xanga blog semi-unregularly, so I figured there was no way I was going to do anything here. Then I thought, well, I have the account and I love this book. I will post something about it. Then I had something about Lost I wanted to post. So for a while I posted random thoughts on Lost here and there. I honestly don't know what turned this into the place I go every week to share my ponderings. But it's here now and I love it.
Actually, that's not true, I know one of the reasons I've started writing consistently - it's you guys. Having people actually read and comment gives me a reason to write something new - even if I mainly do this for me, knowing someone else is taking time out of their day to read something I wrote gives the writer in me a rush :) And then of course I have tons of fun roaming over to you and reading and commenting on your stuff.
SO - that was a very long-winded way for me to say...
In honor of my 100th! post and my 14th! follower I am going to host a fun little contest.
The prize of which will be (drumroll please) an amigarumi owl!
What the hey? you are probably saying (and if you're not I am impressed). What is amigarumi? It is this Japanese crochet making little critters. I made a bunch for Christmas presents two years ago. And I decided to do an owl because of Joan Crawford and Falen and because everyone wants their own adorable owl to sit on their computer and watch them type? Amiright?
Now I haven't actually made the owl yet, but I will post a picture of one I made last year so you get the general idea...
Isn't he the cutest thing?! And I've had a lot of practice since making him so yours should come out even better.
The contest is open internationally and here's how it works...
If you are already a follower you get 2 entries.
If you are a new follower you get 1 entry.
If you blog about the contest or stick it on your sidebar or whatever, then you get another entry
So leave a comment letting me know how many entries you get and next Wednesday the 17th, I'll do a drawing and post the winner!
