One Year!

>> 7.08.2010

It's official... my blog made it to the year mark!!
It's crazy how 250+ posts and twelve months can just fly by!

Read the story behind the cake here.

I can now say that I'm totally addicted to blogging and can't imagine my life without it!
Honestly, I don't think I could count the number of times in the past year that I've started a sentence with, "my blog friend said _______" or "I'm going to ask what the blog readers think" or "I saw the best idea over at that other blog!" You guys are the best!!

I'd like to celebrate this anniversary in my favorite way... by updating my blogroll!

To add your blog, write the following in a comment:
1. name of your blog
2. your blog's address
3. type of blog (house, food, personal, etc)
4. a comment that might help me write a better blog (what would you like to see more of?)

Here's what mine would say:
1. Thrifty Little Blog
3. thrifty lifestyle/ home blog
4. I love reading about ______.

Don't be shy!
I know that you all have great blogs and I'd really like to include you in my blogroll... plus, I just hate picking favorites! It will take me a few days to update everything, but I'm thinking that the newly improved list will be up sometime next week.

PS While I'm updating the blogroll, I'd love to add a few more Twitter friends to my list! Find me @thriftyblog
