I'm just a tad behind on thanking Jan at Expressive Papers for bestowing the "One Lovely Blog" award upon my blog. There are truly so many beautiful, humorous and just downright exceptional blogs out there in bloggyland, well, I'm just honored that she thought I had a lovely blog. Jan's blog is not only lovely, but she's a talented artist in her own right. Head on over to her blog and check out her links to Etsy and Artfire-- she handcrafts gorgeous and unique paper note cards.
Of course, I'm supposed to pass this award to other bloggers who are deserving... but I think I'm going to take a different approach this time. Every single blog I follow is a lovely blog, and that's no joke - else why in the world would I follow you? You know who you are... if you don't have this award yet, I want you to grab it from my post here and smack it on your blog. You are deserving, and YOU have a lovely blog! I love all of you for different reasons: many for the humor (I NEED your humor, everyday!), some for the photos, some for the unique lives they lead or the different countries they live in, some for their recipes... and the list goes on and on.
In keeping with this award theme, I'm going to be having a giveaway in the next few weeks. This giveaway will honor my 100th post which is coming up soon; there will be a primary prize to be drawn from the entrants. There will also be a secondary prize for whoever is in the #1 top commenter position (widget in my sidebar) on the day the giveaway closes. Watch for more details soon! (Um, I haven't figured out the prizes or the details. Yet. I want it to be really good for all of y'all!)
My blog wouldn't be what it is today without all of you, my readers. Even though I started my blog in March 2008, I didn't get serious about it until January 2009, and wow, I just can't believe all the wonderful people I have met through blogging. Who woulda thunk it!! I hope the future holds good things for my blog, as I think through how to segment it better, jazz up the graphics and make the content more appealing to everyone.
So, hang on tight as this crazy Oz Girl decides on the next path for her "lovely" blog!
