The Happy Blogoversary Post (And Giveaway)

Oh my goodness!

It was one year ago today that I created So Fawned & I have all of you to thank for this first 12 months of success!

When I started this blog I was just a few months pregnant with my little guppy girl. I wanted to start documenting (as the tag line states) my life, my inspirations & my loves. However, I never could have imagined what a fabulous place this would turn into for sharing my world.

I have been overwhelmed with support, kindness, friendship, love & a sense of community. You have all made this such a lovely place!

To thank everyone for a YEAR of fawning I want to offer a pretty, little giveaway!

I have been swooning over this Made By Girl print for a long time & thought it would be quite fitting for such an occasion!

To the winner, I offer one 8x10 I Love You, Blogs & Tea print!



To enter the blogoversary giveaway, simply leave a a comment telling me either a) what keeps you coming back to So Fawned, b) how you found the blog or c) what you'd like to see more of!

A winner will be drawn at random a week from now, on August 8th at 8pmPST!

Much love, many thanks & best wishes to everyone!

...

PS. If you haven't already noticed, So Fawned is sporting a new look! The new banner & icon were designed by the lovely Elly & I'm so pleased with how they turned out! Please feel free to add the new So Fawned icon to your site by copying the code!

Congrats! I first "met" you through the 31DBBB challenge, and have loved visiting ever since! I enjoy reading about a mother who adores mothering, and I love all your cool and quirky finds. Not sure that I'm eligible for the prize being in Australia, but the print is delightful! Can't wait to see how your blog grows and changes over the next year. Blessings, Cath/SquiggleMum. xx

Congrats!! I initially came across your blog via twitter and have really taken a liking to it! I love your sense of style, your sense of humor and your parenting style. That is why I keep coming back. Oh, and the cute pics of little Getchen lure me in too! Thanks for sharing your world with us!

Congrats!

I also found you on 31DBBB, after digging through the forums a bit.

I guess I don't have much of an explanation for what keeps me coming back, other than what keeps me coming back to most of the blogs I read; You seem awesome and I like awesome people.

I love reading about the special relationship you have with your daughter. I hope to be a wonderful mom like you are someday!!!

Blogger Julia said...

Yay for celebrating 1 year of blogging! I think a couple of the reasons why I keep coming back are:

* I have a baby of my own, born on 19 March.
* You breastfeed. So do I. Bottle feeding is so incredibly common here that I enjoy reading about someone else who's sticking with it.
* Baby wearing. We've got a BabyBjörn that we use a lot, and I'm thinking about how I can persuade my partner that we need an Ergo carrier...
* All the lovely photos of little Gretchen!
