7 Days of Giveaways – Blogiversary Celebration
It’s my blogiversary, not today, but in just a couple of weeks. I’m so excited to celebrate this event for two reasons.
First, I can’t believe it has been a year. Time flies when you’re having fun. I look back to my very first post on June 24, 2010 and I see how far I’ve come in a relatively short time.
I’ve gone from casual writing about our adventures in the city to freelance writing, radio interviews and exciting giveaways. And I’ve made so many great friends and contacts as a result.
I stepped way outside of my comfort zone early on and interviewed Anne Marie DeCicco-Best (London’s mayor at the time) and Joe Fontana (London’ current mayor) during London’s mayoral election. This is an achievement I will always be proud of.
I’ve learned so much about my great city and the people who live in it. There are some amazing programs, small businesses and fabulous females that make up London and I’m thrilled to be a part of it.
My second reason for my excitement is because I get to give back. City Mom would be nothing without the people who read it. Though I’m not fixed on stats, I admit that when I see them grow I get a rise. It means that people are listening. The feeling of knowing that people care what you have to say will never get old.
When I receive comments on a particular post it feels like a gift. Someone is taking time out of their busy schedule to share their thoughts…with me! I’m truly honoured and thankful.
7 Days of Giveaways
So to show this gratitude I’m giving you gifts. I know, it’s my blogiversary, I should be getting the gifts but it’s you who deserves them!
I’ve gathered a list of some great vendors to run a feature called 7 Days of Giveaways. There will be seven exciting reviews, each with a special giveaway. The feature will run from June 24 to 30 with a new opportunity each day.
I don’t want to share too much, as there’s something to be said about surprises, but think jewellery, makeup and books…that should tide you over!
Looking forward to seeing you on the 24th!
*Note: June’s second Fabulous Female will run on Thursday, June 23 to allow the blogiversary celebration to start on time.
