Today Church Mouse turns one! It has been a fun year of blogging for me! More than anything, I love to share and help people, and writing here gives me a great outlet. Thank you, my dear readers, for reading, sharing, and commenting over the course of the year.
Possible changes ahead: I'm just a small-time blogger and have no aspirations for anything greater, but I have considered being an amazon affiliate in order to make a few pennies to help out our household. I am also working on putting some tabs under the banner to make it easier to browse on the blog.
Do you have any recommendations for the blog? What do you like to read here? Do you have a favorite post?
I think stats are fun, so here are a few:
Pageviews this year: 26,190
Top Post: Church Mouse Learns Frugality
Facebook Followers: 49 (Can we make it 50 today!?!?!)
Google Reader Subscribers: 30
And now, as a THANK YOU to my loyal readers, I'm doing a giveaway today!
I'm REALLY excited about doing this!
I'm giving away an MP3 download from Amazon Music of my favorite hymn CD - Amazing Grace, by the Robert Shaw Chorale. It features 20 beautiful a cappella hymns and spirituals. We listen to this CD most Sunday mornings as we eat breakfast and get ready for worship. It is absolutely lovely, and if you want to hear a sample of it, you can click here. My favorites include "Hark, I Hear the Harps Eternal" and "Wondrous Love".
In order to have a chance to win, I just need you to do the following:
Leave me a comment here telling me how you keep up with Church Mouse.
Do you subscribe with a reader? Follow me on Facebook? Randomly check in? Other?
I've disabled comment moderation temporarily, so I hope leaving a comment will be easy for you.
I will chose a winner randomly from those whose comment in the next 24 hours. I wish I could give a copy to each of my lovely readers, and especially those who regularly comment or send me little encouraging notes, but alas, it would break the bank! So today, one of you has a chance to win and tomorrow (October 11th) around 10 a.m., I will close the entries and will determine who that winner will be!
(If you are unable to leave a comment here for whatever reason you can also e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will put you in. Thanks!!)
