|This is me being excited for you guys.|
ONE: My blog's anniversary is next week on Thursday, May 29th! In honor of this huge milestone, I'll be having a week of posts about my blog and all that jazz.
TWO: On top of that, I will be hosting a giveaway with tons of other bloggers to give away a total of 5 prizes! Keep an eye out for that because blogger or not, guy or girl, there is a chance for everyone to win!
THREE: I will be hosting my first-ever link-up! This announcement is a huge part of the reason for this post because I will be explaining the gist of it and previewing it here.
This link-up will be all about STORIES. What is your story? If you know anything about my school, Vanguard University, you will hear all the time that "Your Story Matters," and it's true.
With this bi-weekly link-up that will be launching next week, every new link-up post will be based on a prompt pertaining to a little bit of your story. You can be as in-depth or deep as you want to be; there is no pressure on how much of your story you want to share. Share what you're comfortable with sharing and find other people whose stories maybe similar or totally different from yours.
I will be hosting this link-up with the lovely Hoda of JooJoo Azad ~ Free Bird blog! Official rules for participation and first linky to link up will be posted on Tuesday, May 27, but to get you thinking about what to write, here is the first prompt of the link-up:
What is your family like? Do you have siblings? Were your parents married growing up? Who do you consider your family?
After the link-up is posted on Tuesday, you will have 7 days afterward to write your posts and link them with ours! You're getting this first post early to start thinking about it and hopefully write for the link-up next week!
This link-up is a great way to get to know the people around you and is a little different from other link-ups, at least ones that I have seen. The blogging community is so great, and I would love to read stories from all over the world!
Don't Forget: Stay tuned for next week as all the blog anniversary festivities begin! I'm so excited!
