One year and one month

I have been reading quite a bit about blogaversaries lately ... and became curious as to when I should be celebrating my own. So I checked to see when I first posted. And, you guessed it, I have missed my own blogaversary which was August 24. I have been blogging for a little over one year now. I have come up with a sort of belated celebratory contest ... contests do seem to be the usual manner of marking the day.

My contest will be open to other bloggers in the US and Canada. As to the prize: a number of kind visitors to this blog have commented favorably on the Peace pinkeep pictured in my post of September 15. The theme of this contest is blog names. Please tell me the name [and address] of your blog and why you chose that name: its significance or background. If you wish to know why I chose the somewhat odd name for my blog, please go to my very first post. Post your comment at the end of this entry and I shall select the winner early next week.

I talk about why I chose Stitch Bitch here.

Linen Stitcher said...

I arrived on the blogging scene rather late, so many of my first choices for names had already been taken. I wanted a name that would instantly identify it as a blog about cross stitch while describing something about me. Thus, "Linen Stitcher" fit the bill perfectly. Not flashy, very simple, just like me! (And yes, I only stitch on linen.)
