Today marks 3 years of blogging for me, both here at The Card Castle and before that over on Yahoo's 360. Coincidentally, today's Bible Verse of the Day powered by Bible Gateway says(there is a widget on the blog if you read this thru a reader or feed)
"Come, let us sing for joy to the LORD; let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation. Let us come before him with thanksgiving and extol him with music and song.” (Psalm 95:1-2) "
Doesn't that sound like a celebration? I love to sing for joy to the LORD... in a purple dress...
Last year for my Blogiversary, I did a big post about all the things I'm thankful for and gave away a couple of prizes and all that. As much as I'd like to I don't have the time and energy for all that right now. I do thank you all the time how much I really appreciate the encouraging comments and emails that you send me. And I really mean that. I'm honored to know that you continue to read what I have to say. Oh and you like my cards... that's always a plus and a boost to my ego:) Here is where I would insert a bunch of Smileys... I do miss the Smileys from Yahoo 360! I'm going to look into getting something like that here somehow...
Anyhow, this year's celebration will consist of you giving me a present. You know, just like a real party. Here's what I need for you to do. Leave me a comment or send an email letting me know at least one thing you've appreciated about this blog over the last year. That's the present!
I'm going to take a conscious break from blogging until after Thanksgiving-- with one or two exceptions. I'm going to participate in the Salt Challenge this time. I really like what those ladies are trying to do and I want to support their efforts. I'll also do a quick post to link to my cards on Hero Arts as I've promised. I'll have a card of the week soon and we are doing another Web Artist Week next week and I did a really cool project complete with template that they'll show. In my opinion, The Hero Club Blog should be one that you check out everyday anyway. There is amazing, amazing talent over there. Let me just tell you, if you don't already, add it to your list of daily stops online.
What am I going to be doing? Besides cleaning out a couple of rooms that we haven't done anything with since we got here, and normal homemaker stuff, I'll be taking the time to pop in and comment on your blog. I don't take enough time to do that as often as I would like to. And I still have to take pictures of all the Birthday cards I received. I like displaying them on my blog if you don't mind... eventually. I had to laugh, but I received a card last week. That is so like me. Better late than never. I live and die by that motto!
So that's it for me... So, what are you waiting for? Where's my present? ;)
