Happy Blogiversary!

So, It's been one year, and one day since I started this book review blog. Who knew that it would last this long? I certainly didn't.

In honor of this occasion, I am going to hold a contest. Anyone interested in entering, feel free to do so. No fancy requirements for this one, although it would be interesting for you to drop a nugget of information about yourself, whether its your favorite color or your favorite food.

I'm sure you want to know what the prizes are, so here you go:

First Prize is a copy of 3 A.M. Epiphany

Second Prize is a subscription for Writer's Digest

Third Prize is a journal and "crafty" pen

I will give you until June 20 to enter. Have fun and feel free to share a bit about yourself.

To show my good will, I will share one tidbit about me: I hate the color pink, but I do love my pink, cell phone.

Oh no! Pink is my favorite! I love it (Maybe it's having three boys and no outlet for the pink?).

I also have a pink phone, an LG Venus...love it!

Happy Blogiversary, Serena!

A few random things: my favourite colours are purple and burgundy. My favourite food is lasagna. I cannot stand coconut or coconut-scented things.

Happy blogiversary! I'll have to spend some time here, cause you're new to me, and what better way to celebrate than earning a new reader?:P

about me...I'm messy but I like tidy things, so I'm often frustrated. I love cooking, I like pink but my favourite colour at the moment is probably turquoise and red. Favourite food is potatoes, and mussels (not together though!).

Happy Blogiversary!

My favorite color is red, but I'm not a big fan of pink, either. My daughter is, so I may have pink overload.

PS love your blog`

Serena said...

Thanks for the entries. Keep them coming.

Nicole: Thanks, I enjoy writing my blog. It's been a fun year.

Suey said...

Your prizes sound very fun. Consider me entered in the contest!

Things about me? Hmmm... you probably know more about me than you'd care to, but let's see if I can add something here...

Favorite color? I hate this question 'cause I like 'em all. I'm a little partial toward lavendar, and made that the color of my room when I was a teenager.

Favorite food? Same problem! But if I had to pick, I'd say anything Italien.

Happy Blogiversary!

Hey, Serena. No need to enter me; I'm just dropping in to let you know I left you some link love over at my Win a Book blog. Happy Blogiversary!

Serena said...

Susan you can feel free to enter the contest as well in addition to promoting my contest.

Serena said...

Suey: I'm glad you entered into the contest. We can never know too much about our blogging buddies.

Alessandra said...

Happy blogiversary, Serena!

Something about me: I love the colour blue, but I'm not a big fan of pink, either. I'm a bit messy, but then I go on a tidying spree and everything is in order again.

Serena said...

Blue, like cobalt blue, and red are my favorite colors...thanks for entering alessandra!

Margay said...

Happy Anniversary! I have to say that red is my all time favorite color and has been since it first caught my eye at about three months old. But my real nugget of information is that this contest ends on my sister's birthday. Just thought that was interesting.

Serena said...

Margay: That is interesting. Thanks for entering.

blueviolet said...

Happy Blogiversary! I don't think there's any color I hate but my favorite is navy blue. I love scrapbooking and I could pretty much live the rest of my life eating pizza and drinking diet coke.

Happy anniversary! Great milestone, and love the idea you are doing the contest. Would love to be entered.

a little about me...
My favorite flower is a lilac, favorite scent vanilla, fav colors are barn red, hunter green and midnight blue.

Serena said...

Wow, I've got ten entries already. Thanks everyone for entering.

Blue Violet: pizza and diet coke really? LOL I love cheese, so anything cheese will suit me fine.

Anna said...

Count me in!

Happy Blogiversary!

I don't know what I can tell you that you don't already know...seems how we've known each other for more than a decade now!

Well, you know I love to talk about food, so here goes:

I love cheese. I will never discriminate against cheese, unless it's fat free, which is just downright gross!

Serena said...

Thanks for entering the contest, and you should try harder to tell me something I don't know...since I already know about your affinity for cheese, Anna!

Anna said...

I know, I know, but I really don't know what to tell you that you don't already know about me. Hmmm...

If I come up with something not too personal (LOL) I'll let you know!

Dawn said...

Hi Serena! I'm coming over from Anna's blog! :)

I love pink and only wish I had a pink phone. ;O)

I'm a chocolate lover and it shows. :P

Serena said...

Thanks for entering Dawn. Wow, you don't have a pink phone and you love pink?? I have a pink phone and don't like pink...but I needed a phone I could see if i put it down...i tend to leave things on the metro.

Rashmi said...

I love coconut in food but not in desserts. Hate them in anything sweet!

Great giveaway. I'll blog it today.

Happy Blogiversary,
About me - I never wanted to be a mother but now love being a mother and can not think of my life without my girls -
Here's something - last year I had a rooster living in the house - yes a real rooster - well just at night and he slept in a dog crate - he could not stay outside with the hens because one of the hens tried to kill him - poor Whitie - he was a cute boy - he lost his life to a neighbor's dog
