Or something like that. Well, today is it. My big day. My one year blogoversary here on WordPress. I was expecting a parade in my honor, but only one car has been by so far. It was either a very short parade, or it was the guy who delivers the paper. Oh, well. Maybe next year.
It has been an exciting trip around the sun. We’ve had our fun, and we’ve done some good together. Several months ago, I shared about a school in Madagascar that needed furniture for the kids, and you guys came through in a big way. Not only did the kids get (locally made) desks and chairs, there was enough money left over to purchase solar panels (also made in Madagascar) because the village has only generators to produce power and must shut the electricity off in the afternoon. I’ll have pictures of the desk later in the week. In the meantime, I’ll share this photo:
Anyway, in the fine tradition of Hobbits (you knew I was a geek, so quit rolling your eyes at me, little missie/mister!), I want to give away some stuff. I don’t have all of the items I’ll be giving away in my hot little hands yet, so stay tuned, but I can show you one if you promise not to tell. Oh, who am I kidding? Tell everyone you know!
That’s right. At least one of the items I will be giving away is original art created by a tortoise. And there are some bookmarks that were created by Red Footed tortoise and the girl-child, a truly unbeatable team. And there’s some other stuff. I’ll have more details on the goodies later in the week, so stay tuned.
Here’s how you win. Find your favorite post here on my blog and share it, and then tell me in the comment section on this post that you did, along with the link to where you shared on Twitter, Facebook, Reddit, or wherever you crazy kids share your toys these days. I’ll be sharing some of my favorite posts over the next week, too. There are some you may have missed! *gasp*
I’ll randomly choose some lucky winners in two weeks. You can enter up to three times, a different post for each entry. Questions? Ask away!
**UPDATE*** Look what we have here! Furniture!
