RW&R's First Blogiversary! and Giveaway!


Amazing - it's already been a year here on this little piece of blog estate. And even more amazing: it coincides with my 300th post here! (That doesn't include all the posts on my photoblog, which I started in November and is already past 150 posts.) I didn't realize I had so much to say!

This little blogiversary celebration is all about you, dear readers! If it weren't for you coming here and reading my ramblings and leaving me comments - or not - this would be a pretty silly exercise. So thank you for seeing me through this last year, including:

And a special shout-out to Laura and Wendy who helped midwife this blog. They encouraged me to do it (or rather, pulled me over to the dark side), answered my stupid questions and they continue to visit and help me out.

To show my appreciation for you readers, I'm doing a book giveaway. The Road Home by Rose Tremain was last year's Orange Prize winner. Tremain is a wonderful writer; I was just introduced to her books last year and I'm determined to read them all, they're so good. I have a hardback copy, gently used (only read once! all the words are still there, in their original order!) to pass on to the winner. Leave a comment below and let me know if you want to be in the drawing. For an extra entry, mention it on your blog and come back to let me know. Contest will close on Friday, March 13th, your lucky day!

Edited to add: all locations are eligible.

I'm always astonished to find people have been blogging for years. Where was I? Why did I wait so long?

I have several months to go for my own one year anniversary. Congratulations to you! I hope you have found it as fun and rewarding as I have.

I would love to read the newest Orange Prize winner. If I win it, I promise to read it and then pass it on.
