Happy Blogiversary to Me!

It's my First Blogiversary!  On March 3, 2012 I wrote my very first blog post, even though I didn't really know what a blog was and had no idea what to write.  Here I am a year later with almost 100 posts under my belt and having a great time! I'm so glad I took the leap and met so many writerly friends who teach me everyday about writing, inspiration, and parenting.

Look at those fists clenched in anticipation!

I gave myself some new tabs (look by the header) as a blogiversary gift!  Ooh!  Aah!  I know I really go all out on celebrations! (sidenote- my husband and I gave eachother bowling balls for our wedding, which are still awesome!)  Hey, I'm only one year old, y'know, so it's still baby steps around here. 


Did you bake me a cake?  No?  Well, thank goodness I baked my own Happy Blogiversary cake.  It took me all morning to make this wild, burn-your-eyes-out-if-you-stare-at-it-too-long technicolor cake:

Happy Blogiversary Badge! by Lauri Meyers



What? You want a goody bag?  Geesh...well I would be happy to make you a Happy Blogiversary badge with your anniversary date - just give me a comment with your desired date (and preferred text/frame color if you aren't comfortable with hot pink.)  Thank my lovely friend Romelle for the idea (btw, Romelle, the cake nearly matches your Casey Chameleon cover!)

I gotta go throw some confetti now!  Please send me your anniversary dates so I can spread the love and thank all of you for visiting!

  1. What a cute picture of you. Love the anticipation with your clenched fists! So adorable! I'm so glad you made a blogiversary badge. It'll be fun to see where it lands and how many people it reached. You made me looked into my archives because I had no clue as to when my anniversary is, until now. It's April 6. I started it way back in 2009 when it was more of a personal blog (not to be shared with the public) to document my journey. I had my first follower about a little over a year ago- a few months before the platform challenge we did. Anyway, love the technicolor, site-for-sore-eyes, psychedelic pink!

  2. Happy Blogiversary!!!!! I just love the cake- it looks good enough to eat and definitely worth sharing the love!!!! I think my Blogiversary is in July, but I'll have to double check that. My blog has been feeling a little neglected lately because I've been working on that MG novel we all challenged ourselves to write. I'll have to go visit and post something. :) Congrats Lauri!

  3. I forgot to celebrate my own Blog Birthday!

    Do you think I should send myself a card even though I'm a couple of months late? Is that bad form?

    Congrats, my friend! Here's hoping this is the first Blog Birthday of many!

    1. Well, you are your own kind of bird. Perhaps you prefer to celebrate your 1000 day anniversary or half blogiversary!
