Celebrate 100 with a GIVE A WAY FOR ALL

I am still learning about the BLOGGING world…. But as I checked into my blog, I saw that I had reached my 100th post, that is cause for celebration.
Lauren (daughter#1 and the vessel carrying my grandchild) created it for me because she thought I needed to "blog". (she was here last week, we had such fun check out her blog here)

Oops*off subject.

Well if I am going to commit to something, then by-golly I’m going to do it and do it right.

I started blogging as sort of a journal for what was happening around here so friends and family could see what we are doing. It has evolved. I started reading other blogs. and am amazed everyday by what is out there, and just WISH it was a full time job I could get paid for by grazing over all the great and interesting blogs and sucking up all the talent and information from the many bloggers… and get carpel tunnel and have to wear glasses and get really fat making all the food out there (thanks bakerella) and spending lots of money buying all the amazing crafts and products that everyone reviews….which they seem to be making money off of their reviewing products and touting their virtues… but I digress.

(I’ll try to keep it to simple statements and not go off on a tangent)It is amazing all the beautiful blog’s out there.

I have learned WAY more from my blog-bff’s than I can ever give back.

I am not a writer.

I like to learn. I like to share. I like to share what I learn.

I am a visual person, that is how I learn

Let me ask YOU

What do YOU like to see in a blog?

What parts of my blog do you like best?

What do you want from me (so you will keep coming back and blog-stalking me)?

I am offering a Give-Away TO EVERYONE WHO POSTS A COMMENT!!!!!

I have made a special gift for this occasion: Lovely Lavender Sachets made out of antique hankies.
(insert cute picture here)

Post a comment and get a gift, not too shabby eh?

If I don’t have your snail mail address, email me! (from my profile)This contest will end Sunday 8/16th at 9pm PST.

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU

This is exciting, Lisa. And everyone wins! I like that!!

Okay, what I love to see in a blog is a "real" person that I can relate to, someone who shares a slice of his/her (well, so far...only HER) life with me.

What I like best about your blog are the fun garage sale tales (and booty), the family stuff, and your amazing scenery. I still dream about those fields of lavender! And I am determined, someday, to visit Sequim.

Happy 100th blog!!

=)

Hi Lisa,
Congratulations on reaching your 100th post! Before I started my blog I loved reading them and now understand and appreciate the work and dedication that goes into maintaining a blog. What first caught my eye was that wild and crazy profile picture you use! I love it and it makes me smile every time I see it. Visiting your blog feels like visiting a friend because your site is warm and inviting and fun!

yay for your 100th milestone!!! i always love to see an honest blogger. one that may get ideas from other blogs, but uses their own subject matter and has their own voice. i can't stand it when i see people plagerize things. it's always fun to see a weekly ritual in a blog too, like you're wednesday wisdom;-)

What do YOU like to see in a blog?
I don't read too many blogs, but I like funny stuff that makes me laugh, like cakewrecks.com that's a blog right?

What parts of my blog do you like best?
I like food fun fridays because it inspires me to cook more. Not that I cook more, but it inspires me :)

What do you want from me (so you will keep coming back and blog-stalking me)?
Just the same old stuff, it's great already! You're my mom, so I will check on your blog whatever you write.

Truant, but commenting!
I like any blog of anyone I know, it doesn't really matter what it's about. Other than that, I like funny blogs, crafty blogs, or blogs with new ideas to share.
I like that you post frequently and have a lot of different elements--- good quotes, good food, and funky garage sale finds... oh, yeah, and pictures of me! :)
I will always come back!
