Today marks one year ago exactly that this blog was born. I have come to think of my blog as part of the family, so why not celebrate it’s turning one!
I began my blog, whilst 30 weeks pregnant with twins, which was aptly the title of my first post! Little did I know that that humble little post would lead to a blog which has changed my life.
My husband doesn’t fully understand the addiction of blogging, or why my blog is so important to me, but I can’t put it into words.
My blog is:
More than that now…
…my place to inspire others…
I have managed to inspire others to blog poetry and quotes and get involved with literature. I have managed to inspire others with my posts about my children, my pregnancy illness, my Cancer. I’ve inspired people to take the Baby and Toddler First Aid course and possibly save a life.
I am now using my blog to raise awareness of various different campaigns and causes and to fundraise for charities.
Numerous people have message me telling me that I inspired them to donate money to the Stand Up To Cancer fund or to Cancer Research. Four people have told me I have inspired them to do Race for Life. One person even contacted me last week, saying that I had inspired her to quite smoking and that the money she saved on cigarettes, she’d give to Cancer Research UK, by sponsoring me to run Race for Life.
No, this is not a plea for nominations in the Inspire category of the BiB Awards (although that’d be nice). This is my blogoversary and I am feeling proud of a year’s worth of my writing. The latter part of that year has included a lot of posts relating to Cancer. For obvious reasons. So I wanted my blogoversary giveaway, to be fitting with that.
I don’t just want to give something away to my readers, I want Cancer Research to benefit from it too!
SO… without further ado, in celebration of my 1st year of blogging, I am giving away the following (all of which I bought from the Race For Life website so that the money goes to Cancer Research UK):
One lucky little girl could win all this:
A pair of Purple PomPoms
Wings and a Tutu
I’m sorry it’s a girly prize, but I having three girls myself, I know nothing about boys!
