My One-Year Blogoversary
April the fourth will be my official one-year anniversary as a regular blogger. It’s amazing how quickly that time has passed but when I look back over my last year’s posts I realise how much I’ve done. I’ve written on everything from attending the Edible Garden Show and visiting the British Museum to pottery classes, allotment life and making wines, Kahlua, jams, soaps and much more. I would have been doing all of these things anyway but I’m so happy to have been able to share my passions with others and meet some really lovely people online.
Thank you to everyone who has stopped by to lend support and give advice – your comments make my day and I appreciate each and every visit you make. To show my appreciation I’d like to send a pot of my Manx Beeswax lip balm to my top four visitors. I spent all day yesterday going through my old posts counting comments and have come up with the winners listed below. Thanks ever so much for visiting regularly – even though we’ve not chatted in person I feel as if we are already longtime friends.
There were so many other wonderful people who visited in the last year and I wish I could send each and every one of you something as well. Whether you visited twice or dozens of times I’m happy that you’ve stopped by and that you support Lovely Greens. So what I’m going to do is have a random draw on Friday, April 4th for a fifth pot of lip balm. To be entered, all you need to do is comment below and tell me which of my posts you liked best.
My top four followers for 2011-2012 are:
