This is a very special post, sending greetings to anyone who may be stopping by from the Grow Your Blog event, hosted by the fabulous and amazing Vicki of 2 Bags Full!
I started blogging 4 years ago- well, closer to 5, actually; my blogaversary is in April! Cute Gremlin the Younger had just been born. I only made 15 posts that year. In 2009 our lives were turned upside down, but I managed to hide it really well for a long time. I only posted 6 times the whole year, and 12 the next. Finally in 2011 I decided to jump into blogging like I had never really done before. It has been AWESOME. I have met so, so, so many dear and wonderful new friends. I have used my blog as a way to document and facilitate my newly revived love of hand-written letters/pen pals. I have been welcomed with open arms into the lives and adventures of other bloggers who inspire me to be a better person, encourage me to live my dreams, and sometimes just make me laugh from my toes!
It's cold outside (at least in the Northern Hemisphere!)!!! So I've decided to host a GIVE AWAY with this Grow Your Blog event, with this peacock colored scarf, lapel pin, and journal as the prize!
Just leave a comment as your entry and I will pick a random winner on Feb. 1st and contact you for your mailing address.
As you read my blog, I hope that you find something beautiful, edifying, cheerful or downright hilarious here that makes you smile! I've learned so much about blogging, and like to think I have improved over time. (Fewer giant walls of text, for example!) :)
I'm going to visit and follow as many in the party as I possibly can. If you decide to follow The Modest Peacock, a big HUG and THANK YOU to you! I can't wait to get to know you all better. Here's to growing and traveling and learning and laughing with our blogs!
