Bloggy Announcements

WOO HOO! I DID IT!  My blog turns 1 in just a few weeks and I'm planning lots of things to celebrate the anniversary and the end of my blogging hiatus.

ANNOUNCEMENT  #1: March 28th through April 1st fun contests and prizes DAILY.  I'm in cohoots with another blogger so you can have TWICE the fun.  Guaranteed easy entry and it may or may not involve BLACKJACK.  Stay tuned!

ANNOUNCEMENT #2: BLOGFEST!  I can't believe it's been almost a year since my first blog post.  Anniversaries are a great time to look back, so I'm holding the Memory Lane Blogfest April 2nd and 3rd.  See details below.

ANNOUNCEMENT #3: I made it a whole year posting 7 days a week. (was I crazy?) Now that I've proven to myself  I can do it, I'm gonna do something a little more manageable.  Starting Monday, April 4th, I will post on Mondays - Wednesdays - Fridays....and maybe occasionally odd bits in between.

To participate, all you have to do is post your answers to one or all of the questions below on Saturday, April 2nd.  Don't post on weekends?  Type up your answers now and schedule them to post while you're sleeping or off gallivanting in the Springtime air.

When did you start your blog?
What is first denomination (price) of postage stamp you remember?
How old were you  when you learned to ride a bike?
What was the first concert you attended without parental supervision?
How old were you when you got your first kiss?
What is your earliest memory?

Here is your sign up:

Happy one year blog anniversary! Posting once a day for a year - impressive! I'm down to 2-3 days a week, which is much easier.

Congratulations! Bummer, I already have a scheduled post for that day for the A to Z Challenge.

I can't believe you posted 7 days a week for a year! You are my hero. :)

Every day for a year! Have mercy on your followers! I like to let my posts sit for a few days so a lot more people can catch up. No one has the time to visit every day. Phew.

Oh, happy one year anniversary! I'm thinking about doing the 'fest.
