The eternal question…

“Rebecca, are you blogging?”

This is a question my husband asks me a lot. (No, the answer is NOT always “yes,” thankyouverymuch.)

In less than a month, he will have been asking me that question for a full year. July 13 is my first blogoversary.

To mark the day, I’m going to write about why I blog. And I hope you’ll do the same. Just answer the question “Why I blog” on YOUR blog and leave a link to your post in the Mister Linky that I’ll put up at 12:01 EDT on July 13.

I’m going to “come clean” and tell you that I will be out of town on July 13. (A Sunday in the middle of July. Go figure.) I’ll be auto posting this and returning later in the day to see what you have to say.

What? You’re going to be out of town or otherwise unavailable that day, too? No problem! Post your link when you’re ready… hopefully some time that week… but I’ll read it whenever. 🙂

AND I’m going to have a giveaway. You don’t have to participate in the blog carnival to enter. Because photography is a big part of my blog and something I love to do, I thought it fitting to give away a print or two. I’m also giving away a $10 gift certificate. I’m still working out the details of both. Do you have suggestions?

I look forward to seeing you then. I think it’s going to be fun. What’s summer without a carnival, after all?

    Sounds fun! I’ll have to start thinking of my reasons now 🙂

    Thanks… as I recall, you suggested this. So REALLY, thank you. 🙂

    Dang I already posted about that a while back. 😦 Oh well, it’ll be a fun party anyway. 🙂 Happy happy Blog Birthday (albeit a little early)

    You mean I’m not the first person to write about this? I’m shocked.

    Just kidding.

    If you want to participate, feel free to leave a link to your “old” post on the subject. If you don’t want to, that’s o.k., too. 🙂

    And thank you for the blog birthday wishes. And for using the word “albeit.” I LOVE the word “albeit.” 🙂

    I was going back through old posts and found your comment.

    Happy almost Blogaversary, and I’m game to write about why I do on that date. Cool idea!

    In my house, my husband doesn’t ask anymore. It’s the 8 year old asking “Did you blog yet, Mom?”

    I’m glad you stopped by. I’m a little behind on responding to comments. Sorry about that. I hope you will join me on July 13. Yay! And that’s funny about your son. He sounds like a riot. 🙂

    Hmmm … Somehow I missed this (or it escaped my mind as things do all too often lately), but I’ll give the topic some thought and perhaps address it on one of my blogs this weekend. Methinks I’ll certainly return to see what others have to say of the topic ;–)
    Hugs and blessings,

    storyteller’s other blog’s last blog post..Haiku Friday #55 – Mental Musings of the Morning and 40PC – On Wheels (generating memories)

    Yay! You came. You came! You wrote. You wrote!
