Blogoversary/50,000 Hits!

I can't believe it! I'm a week away from my third Blogoversary and just posts away from reaching the 50,000 hits mark. WOW! I had no idea that I'd find so much to talk about for three years. LOL! The good thing is, you've endured me ;o) I'm very honoured to have readers out there that enjoy my Blog because it's a little piece of me that I get to share with you all. I've met a lot of wonderful friends this way and I'm sure I will continue to do so.

To celebrate these two events, I'm holding TWO giveaways. What exactly? Well, I'm going to be bad and keep it a secret ;o) Let me just say that the Blogoversary gift has been made by me and it will 'contain' some goodies. The 50,000 Hits gift has a really unique item by La-D-Da (at least I think it is because I've never seen them anywhere so far).

So...here are the rules and PLEASE read them thoroughly!

1) In order to enter the Blogoversary giveaway, you must be a regular reader and commenter of my Blog. This is to thank those that have been with me on a consistent basis :o)

2) In order to enter the 50,000 Hits giveaway, you must be a Pumpkin Stalker, whether you're one already or you become one now :o)

3) In order to enter these giveaways, you need to leave a comment, on this post only!

4) There must be a means to contact you if you are the winner.

5) And finally, your comment must indicate which giveaway (or it can be both if you fit the criteria above) you would like to enter.

Whew! I hope I didn't make that too complicated. On September 29, I will announce the winners. Good luck everyone and I hope you'll enjoy this celebration with me :o)

**Update** I'm sorry I confused you all, and myself! I didn't mean 50,000 Posts. I meant to say 50,000 Hits. Believe me, I'm not THAT chatty ;o) And btw, I have achieved it!!!!

Hmm I probably don't qualify, since I'm such a newbie. Still I wanted to stop by and say hi. This is such a fun blog and I do like checking it out.

Happy pre-Blogoversary. I think I qualify for both giveaways, as I have frequently commented on your blog and even have exchanged some emails with you.

We should always blog because it is fun. So thanks for the three years of FUN.

Lisa said...

Congratulation on your blog-oversary and your 50,000 hits. Great accomplishments as well as all the others you share on your blog.

I have been a blog reader of yours for quite awhile, but officially become a stalker today. This is my comment to state - add my name into both (if I "officially qualify") drawings. And if I should win, not only will I run outside and yell "yahoo" but you can contact me at lmdurst@yahoo.com.

Take care and congrats again!
