April A-Z : Anniversary


Today is the first day of the 2017 April A-Z Challenge which I sort of decided to do on a whim. I have no theme but I hope you'll enjoy what I will post which is basically what I usually post  - lots of random things - some to do with me, some just things that are on my mind lately and some are simply just things. Enjoy!
Anniversary : the annually recurring date of a past event, as of personal or historical importance
― The Free Dictionary

This April makes it 11 years since I started blogging. No matter how long I've been blogging, I always felt a bit new as if I have just started. But sometimes, it feels like I've been blogging a very long while. But I don't think I'll ever quit. I may switch to a new url, I may change my blog name, I may even change the direction of the blog but I don't think I'll ever quit blogging.

To celebrate my very long years as a blogger, here's a Blog Anniversary Giveaway. The winner may choose from one of these prizes:
01/ Critique your blog - just an honest opinion about your blog as a reader, blogs only
02/ Design something for your blog - a header, a badge, a sidebar item, any graphics that are used for your blog
03/ Write a blog post or guest post for your blog - not really sure what I would write, you can give me a subject
04/ One book of your choice under $30 from The Book Depository - The Book Depository usually ships to most countries, but please check.

Things to know:
(A) Leave a comment to enter.
(B) You must leave contact info - ie, email or blog link.
(C) One winner is randomly selected & will be contacted.
(D) Last day to enter is April 30, 2017.
(E) Please note: prizes are subjected to change.

  7. Yes a long time to be blogging. I've blogged for many years too but took quite a few breaks too.

    Thank you for another giveaway. You are kind and generous Lissa.😂🌞💟

    1. I too also took breaks but they were so short, I'm not sure they were breaks.

  8. Wow, 11 years is a long time, blogging-wise! Congratulations! I can't recall when I started but it must have been about 2008 or so, so that means I am at about 9 or 10 years!

    Now, I have to correct something you wrote above, if you will allow me, using CAPS (will) to indicate the changes:
    "I WILL switch to a new url, I WILL change my blog name, I WILL even change the direction of the blog but I don't think I'll ever quit blogging."
    :D

    If I won, you can always contact me here (http://www.dottyhill.com/contact) or on my blog, of course.

    I'm wishing you, Lissa, many happy returns and years and years more of blogging. You are and Mary are probably the two blogs I read most consistently, although admittedly, I tend to do it in spurts each time to make sure I have not missed anything beyond the art co-op posts. :)

    1. yes, perhaps I should have used 'will' instead of 'may' because those statements are really true because that's exactly what I have been doing. I guess I'm not as fickle as I thought.

      thanks for your visit. have a lovely day.
