Do you realise that it's been about a month to the day since I started on this blogging journey! I have to tell you, I am enjoying it immensely! I would never have believed how relatively easy it is once you get going. After a couple of faltering starts, where I kept deleting posts with new posts, I finally grasped that UPDATE is a button to be avoided in Blogsy. And whenever I can get to a big screen instead of the Ipad, I am loving working out Photoshop and dropping in pictures in Blogger proper, and all that stuff.
Mind you, I do rely on friends to help me, you know! I am the first to put my hand up if I don't know how to do something. Sometimes, I think the trick is not to know everything, but to know somebody else who does! Then I can learn from them, but if I don’t grasp it immediately, they are there to hold my hand and walk me through it. And Jim and Maria have been walking me through this one - especially now with this new idea....
I have these bright ideas, like I want to celebrate the blog by having a GIVEAWAY! Or even TWO!
This of course, requires more learning, and more help.
Blogland is a new place for me, and for lots of others, who are reading this now, some of whom have just followed me because I asked them to! Yes, Heather, I mean YOU! But if I can master this stuff at the ripe old age of 54, and even manage a daily blog, then YOU can either learn to leave a comment if you aren’t sure how yet, or even sport the new Barbie-Giveaway Button on your blog if you have one!
So here are the Giveaway deals:
How does a Clarity Goody Bag worth about £50 sound? All you need to do is go to my blog any day and leave a nice comment about Clarity, or about the post of the day. I will pick a winner at the end of the 30th November. The more comments you leave each day, the more chance you have of winning!
But, here's another Giveaway for Co-bloggers who can sport buttons:
If you copy and paste the Clarity Giveaway Button to your own blog, and then leave a nice comment on my blog, saying you have accomplished this mission, then you will go into another draw - an even bigger draw! When the number of followers reaches 700, I will randomly pick a Button Fairy and then personally pack another Clarity Goody Bag to the value of £100. Now that has to be worth figuring it out! I'm told all you have to do is copy the html code underneath my button and paste it into your Blog layout, in the sidebar. The Giveaway Button will then appear on your blog, and you are a serious contender for the prize!
