UPDATE: Contest is now over, Heather’s comment will be the last one to count
Did you miss me? “AHHHHHHHHHHH” that is what I have to say about the last few days dealing with this blog. After so many problems with one hosting company I decided to switch hosting companies and hired out another company to do it for me. Obviously, something went wrong. It is fixed now. Thanks for all your emails checking in on me. Did anyone else notice that Google Reader picked up that my blog was gone? Figures.
This makes me happy though.
I had BIG plans for today’s post and for this week. Chris has been in Haiti since last week and I was hoping to use my evenings for a little blog makeover and writing some fun celebration posts for a BIG REVEAL today. “Celebrating what?” you ask. My 500th post! I had planned for it to fall on today and for it to accompany all kinds of other new stuff on the blog. Well turns out I opted to share Chris’ twitter account on Thursday (which got lost in the transfer mess and I re-posted today) – with no mention of it being my 500th post. So what was suppose to be a fun celebration just kind of got lost in a blog disappearance.
But that is okay…I used all that extra time to work on the boy’s room…which is now about 6 steps closer to being finished.
So…what to do now? Still celebrate, just a little bit at a time I guess. Instead of a Big Reveal today, I’ll just add a bit each day until I get it all done. Here are some things to look forward to in the coming days….
* 5 Super awesome giveaways!
* Fun pictures of course
* A few new blog features
* Highlights from the first 500 posts
* “What I’ve learned from blogging.”
