Not bad I think, writing 100 posts in less than 9 months! I never thought I would have so much to write about when I wrote my first post in June 2011. Sometimes I would write lists of topics, I would even lie in bed and try and compose little essays for my blog, and wonder whether what I wrote had any interest to anyone out there...
But slowly, I started getting more readers and more feedback from my posts and I started enjoying the interaction with my readers and blogging friends, and I´m having fun!!
That´s what it´s all about - fun and friendship.
At the time of posting this post, 8787 people from 90 different countries have visited! Wow, I find this amazing!
My blog is also a way to keep a sort of diary of my activities, my travels, my life...It will be fun to look back in a few years time and re-read these posts. Also, one day my "future" grandchildren will be able to read about their granny and her activities.
I´m now involved in the A-Z challenge and having great fun writing about my adoptive country - Australia.
On the right under the Australian flag, you will find a link to all 7 posts to date - A to F posts and A again!
Next week I will carry on with the G and so forth, I´m trying to do them alphabetically and have all topics mapped out.
In honour of my 100th post I would like to do a giveaway, which is open to all friends, followers or potential followers worldwide:
I will be giving two of you, a painted wooden box, decorated with the serviette technique, similar to these ones.
- Please leave a comment under this post with your chosen colour/colours, so I can paint one specifically to your taste. If you would like a specific theme for the serviette mention that, as I have hundreds of them, so I might have what you like: eg. flowers and colour of flowers...
- If you don´t have a blogger profile, leave your e-mail address, so that you can be rewarded if you are the winner. (to avoid spam into your account, write the e-mail address in this format: mary at gmail dot com"
- You can also leave a comment on my facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/pages/sami-colourfulworldblog/238817216155544?sk=wall
- The giveaway will be open for two weeks, closing on Monday 12th March. The winner will be announced a few days later and of course notified via email and on a blog post.
So, participate and good luck!
