Big New for Stress Case Followers!

When I started blogging, I didn't really have a goal.  I didn't have a number in my head of how many followers would be successful, or how many views per day would make me feel accomplished.  I just wanted an outlet to share my thoughts, and encourage me to journal my life as I lived it.

While I still don't think I've really found my niche, nor do I at all think of myself as a super star blogger, I am so excited to share with you that I have almost 100 followers!  (This number includes those who follow me via Google Friend Connect, by Feed, or subscribe by email.)  I can't believe ten people want to know what I'm thinking about - let alone alone 100!

Because the encouragement you all give me via comments, and just by viewing my blog and reading my (often) scatter-brained thoughts, I wanted to thank you in the best way I know how.

I'm hosting my first ever giveaway!

I first thought of the idea to host a giveaway when I hit 100 followers a few weeks ago, but couldn't figure out how to find something to giveaway.  I don't think I've quite hit the big time where I could get something donated from a big company, and we're sort of on a budget here (we're not living with my parents because we're afraid to be on our own - we're saving every penny we can here!).

That is until I talked to Nurse So Crafty, who I am lucky enough to work with!  She has an adorable blog (Pink Sparkle and Lace) and an Etsy shop filled with handmade aprons, totes, diaper covers, and more!  I told her I was interested in hosting a giveaway and she was gracious enough to volunteer to donate a beautiful handmade apron to the cause!

I will start the giveaway after I reach 100 followers/subscribers and I hope you, as my readers, know how very grateful I am for each and every one of you - I wish I could mail you each an apron (wonder how Nurse So Crafty would feel about that order!)!

If you've been coming by to read, but can't quite commit yet, I hope you'll consider following me, and entering my first ever giveaway!  Need to learn some more about me first?  Find out some things you should know about me if we're going to be BFFs, catch up on my wedding recaps, see what I'm grateful for, or check out some of my most recent outfits!

i have the same thoughts on my own journal although I only have 14 followers, I'm so thrilled that anyone would want to read what I have to say!

Congrats on 100 followers, I may not comment all the time by I certainly do enjoy reading your blog. Keep up the fabulous work!
