It's My Blogoversary!


Three years ago today, I wrote my first ever post for this blog.  It was a horrible post, lacking formatting, purpose, pretty much everything.  I refuse to even link to it.  But it was the birth of what would someday become one of my number one obsessions.

After that post, I rarely updated.  Blips here and there about my make-believe writing.  Then I completely ignored the poor blog for months.  Almost a year.  How sad.  Once again I started up with my random posts that received no comments and little attention.  And once again... I forgot about my blog.

That is until I started to prep for NaNoWriMo 2010.  I decided to resurrect this little blog of mine.  I made friends.  Found support.  Created a system.  And become thoroughly, absolutely addicted (and in love) with my blog.

I could never leave it now.

Happy 3 year anniversary, dear blog.  We had a rocky start.  Many spats, many months of neglect and cold shoulders.  I almost ended things completely with you many times.  But we made it through.  Now we are better than ever, with a bright future ahead of us.

(Yes, I am whispering sweet nothings to my Blog.  And it deserves it!)

To celebrate... I thought to host a random, short, fun little Giveaway.  Of Prison Nation.  You know, that book I wrote.

How it will work:
- Comment on this post, with some blogging sweet nothings. Aww...

- The first people who comment will win a digital copy of Prison Nation.

- The prize will be a gifted digital copy, in either Kindle or Nook format.  Sorry, those are the only digital formats I offer at this time!

I would love to do more, such as an actual paperback giveaway... and will do more, very very soon.  But for now, this is all I can do.  Still... A digital copy is better than nothing, right??

If you just want to comment for the love of it and do not want a digital copy (*gasp!*) just let me know in the comment.  But... we all know you want a copy.  Of this book.  That I wrote. *winks*

Three years... I am left wondering: What is next?  Oh, the dreams and opportunities.  And blog posts.  Where will we go?  It all abounds.  And I am so happy that all of you are along for this ride.  *beams*


Happy Anniversary, Dear Blog!
And... as always: Happy Writing!!

Happy Blogoversary! I don't have a Kindle or Nook, so I'm just loving on a Writeshove buddy. :)

Jenni Merritt said...

Sierra - That I did! There are many ways to get a copy of my book, Prison Nation. It is available on Amazon in both paperback and Kindle. You can also order directly from me, if you want a signed copy.

And... since you commented first... you can get a free Kindle or Nook copy. Let me know if you want it!

Laura - Yay for writeshove love!

Happy Blogaversary!!! Your blog entries are such a fun part of my day, three days a week! I'm SO glad you've stuck with it and that you are thoroughly addicted!

I already own a signed paperback copy, so no digital one is necessary for me. Other people need to be able to get their hands on the awesomeness that is Prison Nation!
