Sharing on Saturday - 3rd Blogoversary Celebration Week Begins!

visit pink cake box to see some beautiful cakes,
 you may even place an order if you're in the NJ area!

I couldn't resist this cake since it has my company colors...blue, green and orange! Isn't it perfect to celebrate my 3rd blogoversay...which slipped up on me?! I had set a few goals for this occasion but since I have been home so little this summer the goal meeting will be reached throughout the coming week (hopefully).  One goal was to have 8000 visitors which I have done, another to have. The others were:
* have 50 followers (45 right now)
* have 300 posts (this is post
* debut my Etsy shop (look for the grand opening on Friday!)
*redesign the blog to match my Etsy storefront (the designer is working on that right now so I think I'll have the blog change Friday too)

It really feels like it should be the 2nd blogoversary not 3rd. Especially in the last year I have made some amazing blog friends and feel I know more what I want to blog about. I expect to continue to be consistently inconsistent but there will be the comfort of some constant posts...Monday Musings, Wordless Wednesdays. etc.

SO!!!! What is a party without presents??!!! I am thinking all the design work for Etsy and the blog should probably count as my present but don't my guests deserve goodies? Absolutely!  There will be daily giveaways drawn from the previous day's commenters. Sunday morning I will draw for three bigger prizes, every comment you leave during the week will earn you a ticket in the drawing so visit daily, coment often. If you mention the celebartion on your blog and provide a link for your readers you get 5 additional tickets. If you lead a friend, family member, blog reader here and they mention your name in their comment you earn 2 more tickets...that one helps those of you that don't have blogs ;) Comment on my FB blog posting and earn 2 tickets, helpful for those of you that don't want to sign up for a google account. Become a follower and earn 2 tickets. Already a follower? Once you leave your first comment of the week you earn 3 extra tickets. If you are a subscriber mention it in your comment for extra tickets.  So many chances to be a winner!

the Celebration lasts all week!
Are you ready?
Let's party!
