It’s hard for me to believe it, but my 2 year blogiversary is coming up next week.
2 years of blogging!
When I started this gig, I had no idea where it would lead me. I certainly never envisioned it growing and thriving, and most days it’s all I can do to keep up. But it’s true what they say: when you find something you love to do, you’ll never work a day in your life. That’s not to say it hasn’t been hard, and there have definitely been some tears along the way. But overall, I would not trade what I do for anything. I feel like now, in my early thirties, after quite a few years of just being unsure of what I was supposed to do, I’ve finally found something that suits me. It’s a really, really nice feeling!
I do know, though, that none of this would be possible without you guys. Some of you have been with me from the beginning, but most of you have found me at various points throughout the last 2 years; maybe from something you saw on Pinterest, or perhaps something someone shared on Facebook. Maybe this blog post is the first one of mine you’ve ever read! Either way, I’m glad to have you here and I hope you come back many, many times to share in this adventure with me.
I wanted to do something big for my 2 year blogiversary, so I’m giving away a pretty awesome prize package! It includes a $200 gift card to Joann Fabrics, as well as all three of my pattern e-books. (The e-books were sponsored by a very awesome fan – I’ll call her “M” – who wanted to bless someone anonymously. I want to thank her so much for her generosity!)
To enter the giveaway, just follow the directions on Rafflecopter below. There are lots of ways to snag entries. Pick one, or pick all! The giveaway will close at 11:59pmEST on Monday, January 18 (the 2 year anniversary of the day I took a deep breath and pushed the “publish” button on my brand new blog). The winner will be notified via email within 24 hours, and will have 48 hours to respond with his/her mailing address before another winner will be chosen. So don’t forget to add firstname.lastname@example.org to your address book!
To enter, scroll down and register (either via Facebook or your email address). Once you do that, the giveaway form will appear. (This may take a moment.) Choose whichever options you want, and claim your entries!
A Note About Viral Sharing
After you claim your first entry, an option will appear called “Bring Your Friends”. To earn extra points, you can copy and paste the unique URL that Rafflecopter generates for you and share it on social media. For every person who enters the giveaway via your unique link, you will earn an additional entry (up to 10).
Best of luck!
