Happy Blog-aversary to Me!!!

{image courtesy of www.sxc.hu}

Today marks 5 years of blogging for me--unbelievable!! Even though I don't have a huge blog or a ton of followers, or even post as often as I'd like, this blog has become a special place for me, and has accomplished what I set out to do--journal my life, and keep in touch with family and friends. Along the way, I've even made some new friends through blogging!

I have a couple fun little giveaways coming up later this week to celebrate my blog-aversary, but in the meantime I was wondering if you guys could help me celebrate by leaving me a comment on this post? If you're anything like me, you might be a "lurker" who doesn't have much time to comment, but I'd love to hear from you, even if it's just a quick little hello!! If you have more time, I'd love to hear about how you found my blog, what you most enjoy reading about here, other topics you'd like to see me write about, or a little bit about yourself--whatever you would care to share. :)

And thanks for listening to my ramblings . . . blogging is a lot of fun, but it wouldn't be near as much fun without the interaction with you guys and knowing that someone out there actually reads the things I write. :)

Happy anniversary of blogging! I have loved being a reader and watching your kids grow and learning about a bunch of new things from you! :-) Here's to (at least) 5 more years!

Hi and happy 5 year blog-aversary to you.

I read your blog regularly and enjoy it too, I might add.

I found your blog through my aunt--who is a friend of your mother.

Sincerely,
Susan

Carrie, I know exactly what you mean about the fun in blogging. It totally comes from the interaction that you get from commenters.
I love reading your posts about your everyday happenings. I'm in such a different stage of life than you & it is very interesting for me to read how you handle different things with your home & kids.
I also love the feeling that we are able to continue our college friendship even though the distance from my house to yours is so great & it's been so many years since we've actually seen it each other. It's just a great way to keep in touch!
Happy, happy blog-aversary!

5 years! That's a long time to be blogging. I don't remember when/how I found your blog, but I just like reading blogs from other NH residents.

Hi Carrie,
I just had to write again and say I thought it was so funny that the sister in law I mentioned commented just before I did.How funny.She was just a little faster I guess.:)By the way...hi Joey.Nikki

OK, did you think that up yourself? "...you might be a 'lurker'..." I love it... you are so creative!

Yes, I guess many days I am a lurker. I love hearing what's going on but don't always have time to leave a thoughtful comment.

I agree, Sunday was a weird weather day, we had snow at our house and no snow at all at church. Those who came in from Canaan had more snow. Bill and Sandy had a tree fall on their house... don't know yet how much damage was caused. This whole winter has been strange I think.

Happy "Bloggy-versary"!!! It is fun to see the kids grow up.

Thanks for blogging!

Okay, so I'm reading thru the comments and find out that a tree fell on my parent's house. LOL Guess I should give them a call and find out the details.

I love reading your blog. I've gotten a lot of inspiration for homemaking and crafting. Great job Carrie!

Happy 5 years! I enjoy seeing the pictures and reading your blog, even though we get to see each other almost every week!

Arlene Grimm said...

Happy Anniversary!! I came to your blog thru your mom's blog and I must say you both are very inspiring....keep up the good work!

Mrs.T said...

Happy blog-aversary, Carrie! Like Mindee, I get to see you almost every week or so, but it's still great fun to read your blog and see/hear what's happening in your life. And of course, YOU are the one who got me to start a blog of my own. Such fun, and the Lord has brought dear friends into my life (like Susan's aunt) through blogging.

Congratulations!
