Blogiversary 2.0

Just take a moment and think about this... 2 years. 730 days. 17,520 hours... okay, I'm getting out of hand. But people. dudes. I've been blogging since 2006, gosh that seems like forever! wow. I feel like I haven't even really started, yet here we are.

So, in honor of the special day, I'm having a contest. I love to discover new blogs. I even read ones that don't have any fiber related topics, if you can believe that. Peeking into the lives of others has enriched my life and amazingly brought me closer to family and friends by blogging too.

Contest Rules: You have until Friday, September 12, 2008 at midnight to leave me a comment containing 3 different, unique or fantastic blogs you've discovered and enjoy.

The blogs don't have be fiber related, or highly popular but perhaps funny, artistic, witty, and entertaining... that is always good. Anyone can enter, but only one name will be but in for the drawing. Once midnight comes I will pick a winner at random and one lucky winner will get to choose between these two yarns:



Yarn: Aussi Sock (Ravelry Link)
Fiber: Merino, Nylon
Yards: 400
Color: Winner gets to pick between the color Oak Moss or Plum Rosie.

I look forward to reading up on some cool blogs and blogging some too. Thank you all for reading, participating and being apart of this great big world... you make life easier to manage;)

Happy blogiversary! I read so many blogs that it's hard to choose, but here are three I like:

smittenkitchen.com has recipes I want to try more often than any other food blog I read.

I almost always find www.lookydaddy.com funny, even though I don't have children.

techknitting.blogspot.com is helpful and interesting.
