A very happy (blog) birthday…

10 Sep


So 10th of September 2007 was my first ever blog post which means today is my blog’s birthday. It’s weird to think that I’ve now been blogging for two years as I only really got into at the start of this year – before that I was just randomly using this site more as a reference point for things I’d seen.

In the last 8 or so months, I can confess to having become a bonifide blogging addict – and not really because I like writing it so much, but more because I like reading people’s comments, discovering their blogs and just the general loveliness that is other bloggers. It’s amazing how a bunch of people you’ve never met (and might never meet) can brighten your day so much.

So I thought it only appropriate that for my blog’s birthday I get round to giving away those Lemonade Awards I got from Shallow Mallow and My Black Book. (And post a pic of cupcakes too since you can’t have a birthday without cake!)

Without further ado, I give these blogs a Lemonade Stand for their general awesomeness and loveliness… If you haven’t heard of any of them, pop over and say hi from me!

1)Put the Lemonade Award logo on your blog or post if you want

    Happy birthday! I only found your blog a few months ago so you’re still a baby to me, not a toddler!
