Well, I'm very excited about today. Two special things are happening for my blog. First, as you can see by the handy dandy logo to the left, I have been bestowed the honor of being picked as the Featured Blogger by the Blog Roller gals http://www.media.theblogrollers.com/. I was so excited when I received the email about this. Now I know how Ralphie's father felt when he received his "major award". I hate to disappoint, but there won't be any "soft glow of electric sex" on this blog. Boy would that be a change of direction for this blog. LOL
I want to thank the Blogger Roller gals for this nice surprise. I'd better thank them quick before Kanye shows up and tries to take over my acceptance post.
The second special thing for me today is that today marks the two year anniversary of my blog. It is hard to believe that two years ago I decided to take the plunge and start writing a blog. If you go back in my archives, my first post was a picture I posted of a Christmas album I bought at Wal Mart. Two years later that album is still not finished, but my blog marches on.
What I've loved about blogging has been using this blog as a way to express my creativity. It has provided me the opportunity to learn how to do new things. I also love how this blog has given me the opportunity to "meet" other mom's who blog. It empowered me at a time where I felt powerless. It has been a great journey and for those of you who have been reading my blog, thanks for joining me for the ride. So, everyone raise your glasses of champagne in celebration of my blogiversary. Clink, clink.
In celebration fo my blogiversary, don't forget to enter my blogiversary giveaway. It runs through Sunday.http://chiccraftychick.blogspot.com/2009/12/happy-blogiversary-to-me-giveaway-for.html
