Happy 100 posts & 50 followers Give-away!
So here it is finally - my 100th blog post and 50 followers ( actually as of today 52 :) ! And with it a fabulous give-away! A couple of years back, one of the first things that I bought on eBay was this 1940s hat.
Being an eBay novice I did not bother to check its measurements, thinking I could have it re-fitted should it not be quite my size... Well, that proved more difficult than I had thought. So, I never used the hat, since it was too small for my big head ... :)
But it turns out it can be worn, as modeled here by my friends daughter, Anna. Her delightful head measures 54 cm / 21,2 inches.
So if your interested in this beautiful little hat, post a notice on your blog and let me know that you want to be part of the give-away. And since I think its fun to have a runner-up prize ...
I have decided to also give away these authentic late 1950s/early 1960s elegant ladies shoes. The winners will be announced on the 30th of June - Good luck !
So far, it has been a journey finding my own "blog voice". As a person I tend to be, by nature as well as profession, quite personal. Yet I have a need to not be too "private" in my musings here. The Internet gives you this feeling of having an intimate one-on-one conversation and you can easily forget that this medium is far from private ...
I often find myself thankful that I was not in my teens when blogs, Skype and virtual chatting exploded. I would have been ill equipped to fully understand the difference between personal and private, something I think is necessary for virtual survival. Thus I have had some trouble finding my "blog footing" in the beginning. Also as a verbal person I feel compelled to, at least, try and write well... But since English is only my second language (thank God for spell checking :) I tend to think a bit more before I express myself (which is a good thing ! ;) which might make my style not so fluid at times.
Still I have no regrets about starting to blog, all in all its been a great experience! And I look forward to more blogging ( even though I shall never understand how people find all the time !!) And here I am - 100th posts - hooray! Who would have thought it when I started... Here´s to another 100 !
