Happy Blogiversaire!

So, I was sitting, reading and trying to ignore the Malteaser Bunnies that were in the cupboard (no -  they have not lasted all this time from Easter. They are 3 for £1 in my local shop. And I did not ignore them for long, rest assured. They are now in tummy heaven) and my mind drifted off for a bit. Being me -  I was thinking about "this time yesterday / last week / last month /  last year".... and then it struck me.


I have been blogging for a whole year. I graced the blogosphere with my post about Aldwych Tube Station a year ago today. Where exactly the 365 days have gone hence, I am unsure. It seems to have gone by lickety split, that's for shiz. It feels like I am still so new to all this writing/picture sharing malark, and yet, I seem unable to shush. I now have FaceBook and Twitter accounts, sponsors and over 200 followers.

The fact that I have any followers at all flummoxes me daily. You are all as sparkly as the sparkliest of things.


There are many things that I have learnt along the way. Namely, the community that exists within the blogging world. I have made comment based friends that I chat to regularly, twitter chums who I have never met, but know I would hug & buy a drink for and actual, real life make-me-laugh-until-I-think-I-might-puke pals who I think I talk to in some form pretty much every day. None of the above I was expecting. But, I sure am pleased that I found it.



So  -  how to celebrate?



Well. What better than presents for a Blogversaire? I thought I would give a whole bunch of giveaways a shot. I did toy with the idea of doing 1 a day for a few days -  but -  to be frank -  I would like it to last a bit longer and not inundate everybodies dashboards with "Giveaway #1....#2....#3 etc". They shall be themed, some may be a 1 prize only, some may be 1st and 2nd. Oooh -  how 'citing! Stay tuned for more details in the next week or so!

Thank you for popping over to Land Girl 1980, tweeting me, FaceBooking, commenting, and generally being grand.

  11. Hello! I still can't work out how to just follow you in Blogger! I'm confused on all the options at the side- which one do I pick just to follow you in my blogger 'follow' menu please? I've just got you in my bookmarks at the moment!

  12. Thanks gals! You rule. Fact.

    Kezzie - you should be able to just click "follow" and it will auto add it in. If not - go into your dashboard, click "Add" (it's next to "manage") and put in http://landgirl1980.blogspot.com/ and it should add it in :) Thanks for bookmarking me though :)

  17. Well done you. I thought the headscarf....or beannag, as we call it in my mother tongue.....had long gone until I found this blog, my mother always used to wear one until she suddenly stopped, it must have finally gone out of fashion at that point!
