Happy blogoversary to me!

One year ago today I started this blog with this post.  So how am I celebrating my "blogoversary"?  Well, I'm sorry to say that there's no giveaway or anything special for you, the readers.  Instead, I'd like you to give me a little something (it is my blogoversary, after all). ;)  It won't cost you anything but a minute or two of your time - I'd like everyone who reads this post to leave me a comment. 

Like most bloggers, I love getting comments and I really appreciate those who take the time to comment on a regular basis.  But I know there are a lot of people out there who read and never comment.  So, take the plunge today and do it!  And please, comment here and not on Facebook (not that I don't appreciate the FB comments as well, but I prefer having comments on the blog, so I can look back and read them together).  So what should you say in your comment?  Well, you can just say hi, or if you're really adventurous, I'd love it if you told me how long you've been reading my blog and how you came across it.  If you've never commented before and you're not sure how to do it, here's how...

At the bottom of this post, click on the link to "comments" (it may say "post a comment" or "2 comments" or something like that).  A pop-up window will appear.  Type your comment in the box where it says "leave your comment".  Beneath that it says "choose an identity".  You can sign in with a Google or OpenID account if you have one, or you can just leave your name/URL (don't worry if you don't have a URL, you can just leave your name).  You could also select "anonymous" and include your name in the comment box (please leave a name!).  After you put in your name, you can click preview or publish.  After that you may have to prove you're a human by typing some letters into a box (I can't recall whether I have that function on or not), and that's it! 

"Easy peasy" as Annika would say. :)

One year already - wow - congratulations!

I have been reading your blog from day one, but I've known you for almost 4 years now. With this blog I feel like I know you and your family better.

I enjoy reading about your ups and downs - it reminds me that we all have them and that we are not alone in dealing with them.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for letting me take a close and personal look into your life and your family.

Keep it up!
Liane :)

Happy anniversary....thank you for sharing your life with us. I chanced upon your blog while trying to browse for some sewing ideas. I don't sew or knit yet, but want to try it out sometime soon. What machine should I start out with?
