First Blogiversary!!! A Party and a Contest (Virtually)

One year ago today, I posted this. Not an auspicious start, I'll admit.

But I knew absolutely nothing about blogs and blogging. I was just hoping to get the word out about our (now defunct) food shop.

It's been quite a year, posting and learning. The day I uploaded my first photo, was a huge triumph for me.

I started out with about three readers (I'll be thanking you personally later), grew and learned, took a major time-out when my Mum died.

I had to rethink the purpose of the blog when we closed the shop. But it's becoming a little clearer as we go along. And miraculously, my readership is growing!

I want to thank you all for coming here. And for coming back! I love doing this. I've made some new friends and look forward to getting to know more of you in the year ahead.

And to help that along, I've decided to host a little contest. Leave a comment between now and Sunday, and I'll enter your name to win a free copy of our eCookbook "Autumn Dinner Recipes". It has menus and recipes for a complete dinner party meal for every week of the fall season.

Anyone who mentions this contest on their blog will get two chances to win.

In the meantime, enjoy the party.

And a Very Happy Thanksgiving to my American friends!
