My one year blogging anniversary…

All Modern

I have been a junker for years…hitting garage sales, flea markets, occasional sales and antique stores at every opportunity and where ever I was travelling. In September of 08 I had time on my hands and started actively seeking out blogs that shared my junking and decorating interests. Some how I stumbled upon My Romantic Home and A Beach Cottage, and my blogger stalking days were in full tilt. I just surfed from one inspiring blog to another, ultimately becoming inspired to start my own. I didn’t know anything about blogging but thought it would be fun to learn something new. I am not sure why but the day I started -- I made a decision to blog every day for a year. About every four months during the past year I questioned why I made that decision, and wondered whether or not I would be able to do 365 posts in a row. I am surprised and happy I made it.

Thank you for visiting my blog and following along, and for the kind words along the way. I am not quite sure how often I will post going forward…I am guessing at least a few times a week, but not seven.

To celebrate my anniversary AllModern.com is sponsoring a giveaway…details to follow. In the meantime check out their website.

I thought I would share my favorite post and few others posts that capture my junking and decorating style.

I, for one, am very glad you took the oath to post daily....I took the oath to read daily. We both did a good job!

I'm with PJ. I am so glad you came on board and we even had a chance to meet! Congrats to you for meeting your challenge. I have been slipping on the daily thing for a while now, so I know just what a feat that is!

I love reading your blog, but understand because I certainly couldn't post daily. Congratulations on your blogger anniversary.
