Blogging For Bliss & A Giveaway!

Hey, there's a party going on at Artsy Mama to celebrate the release of Tara Frey's beautiful new book, Blogging For Bliss!

I discovered the world of blogging early last year when I stumbled onto a few beautiful blogs, and got hooked on following them.

After months of 'lurking', I decided that I really wanted to participate. And so my blog was born. I wasn't entirely sure what my blog would be about, I just knew this was something that I wanted to be a part of.
Over the last year, my blog has changed and grown; and it has gone from being merely 'something fun to do', to something that brings me satisfaction and bliss. It is something I do for me.

I have met many wonderfully creative and talented women, who have inspired me to learn new things and stretch my creative wings. Through my blog, I can share the things I love with people who 'get it.' And they offer encouragement and support when I need it.

Last month, was my one year blogiversary. So, to celebrate, I'm having a giveaway. The winner will receive this little stash of goodies for their creating.
To enter, leave a comment on this post. If you mention my giveaway on your blog, come back and leave another comment, and I'll add your name a second time. If you do not have a blog, be sure to leave your e-mail address with your comment. This drawing is open anyone.
The drawing will be closed Friday evening, and I will draw a winner at that time.


To visit other blissful bloggers, go to Artsy Mama.
Follow your Bliss.
This giveaway is now closed.

Hi Debi,

Wonderful post. I just bought Tara's book this past weekend and it's fabulous. I'm just like you. I stumbled across a blog purely by accident early last year and I was hooked right then and there after realizing there was so much beauty to be discovered out there in blogland and I'm so glad I decided to start my own blog to add even more.

Would love to be entered in the drawing for your lovely giveaway, so please add my name to the mix.

Hi Debi, I found you through a link on Elyse's blog, I read this post about how you got started blogging and it had so many similarities with me I wanted to write to you. I started by reading a few blogs and loving all the beautifu posts on my blog, but the more I do it I am completely hooked. It was nice to read your post and to know that more people than me feel the same way. I look forward to my time each day when I look at all my favorites, and get to share some part of me also. Not sure if it makes sense as I am writing it, anyway I am glad I found your post. It sort of validated how happy I am blogging. If that makes any sense.
I look forward to reading lots more of your posts.
♥ Rebecca
p.s. congrats on your blogiversary!!
