Happy 2nd Anniversary Lulus Petals


April 20th (SUNDAY) is my TWO year blogging Anniversary! I feel very much the same about blogging today as I did when I celebrated my
ONE year anniversary
I truly treasure my relationships and chats with my blogging buddies. Finding their emails and comments are like finding little treasures left on my desktop. I find myself checking email often, hoping another surprise bouquet of thoughts will be left for me to inhale. Doesn't it seem like the world became a much smaller world since blogging? Communicating with wonderful souls from various blogging lands, like Ireland, Canada, India, Australia. We are all the same. We share a love of words. We share a love for people. We are comfortable enough to bear our hearts most intimate emotions with these cyber soul mates. Comfortable knowing they won't judge, they won't criticize. They lend support, they encourage. This past year,They've helped me feel secure enough to post poetry. As bad as a lot of it was, My cyber supporters would find SOMETHING kind to say, making me feel pleased that I 'put myself out there.' Feeling confidently composed to try again and again. When I had difficulty writing a poem for my son, my giggly friend Sherrie gave of her time and reconstructed it, moved words around, till I was able to feel proud to give it to him as a birthday gift. As I get to know the talented writers in this tiny blog universe, It amazes me that even though they compose creative, artistic, intelligent posts, poems and stories, They still visit me in my basic blog land, where I mostly just talk about the daily dealings of this and that in my pretty ordinary, routine life. SO, In celebration of meeting such accepting,kind, treasured friends (those whom I didn't know last year and all my great long time friends).... LET'S HAVE ANOTHER CONTEST! Last year this is what Sherrie won! This year I will try to put together another nice prize. (possibly hair items, since I doubt you would like a framed poem of mine!) Instead of choosing a story I enjoy best like my last contest and the first contest. This time, ANY one who leaves a comment will have their name written on a piece of paper and drawn from a hat,(make that a bowl) With a name like Lulu's Petals, You know you can trust me to be honest and fair. Good Luck and thanks for all the warm visits. I hope to keep this hobby going at least another year. ♥
I am happy to tie my anniversary celebration into sunday scribblings and I want to thank them too, because without their weekly prompts, I may not have lasted this long. ♥

You have until April 21 EST to enter!

Well as you know I am a newbie, but just like you I really enjoy writing and of course reading what others have written. I hope you will continue to write for many years to come.

Making new friends is definitely a perk.

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!!

Thank you for letting us into your life for this last year. The subheading on my blog is "Blogging friends aren't virtual. They are real." I feel that you have expressed it well.

Blogging is the modern day equivalent of the writer's meeting at ye olde pub to exchange ideas and share compositions and spur each other on to good writing. Wishing you well.

Happy Blogaversary! To me, the wonderful thing about blogs is the great variety, and that I get to meet people in their real, everyday concerns as well as in their poetry or other writing. Keep on blogging as long as it makes you happy!

Congratulations! Be sure to blow out all your candles and make a wish!

Dear Lucy

The shere number of comments and compliments here is testimony to the great contribution you make to all our lives.

Your casual 'girl next door' style is so refreshing and such a contrast to the many bloggers whose sole aim it seems is to give an impression of superiority. Here we get YOU! And for that - and your many visits to our sites - I thank you from the heart of my bottom - and it doesn't come much better than that! Bless you.

Hi Lucy. Congratulations! Like you blogging has been such a wonderful blessing....one I never would've imagined when I was initially told about the phenomenon.

Like Paisley, it was Sunday Scribblings which connected you and I and like Keith, I always enjoy visiting you site because your "style" and friendliness is always welcoming..... You write from a genuine place....your own heart.

Happy anniversary! I'm so glad you've hung around that long, too, because I enjoy reading your blog. And I think if it weren't for Sunday Scribblings, I probably would've given up blogging a long time ago, too. They really kept me writing, especially when I first started blogging. Lately I get so busy that I don't always have time to write for SS, but I know they're there, and I'm so glad to have fun blogging buddies to read... like you!
