My One Year Blogaversary

Giveaway is now closed.  Winner is Lynn of Happier Than a Pig in Mud

March 11, 2011 is when I first started my blog.  It also happens to be the birthday of my friend Kathleen J., who kept encouraging me to go for it!  I had never even heard of blogging until she gave me links to some really wonderful spots.

It has been a fun time for me, meeting new blogging friends, visiting places I only thought about, adding places to my "Wishful Travel" pin board, even learning about Pinterest.

So while I am still recuperating from eye surgery and still rather blurry, I will keep this post short and sweet.

To mark this occasion, I will be sending one of my followers a $50 money order.  I simply could not decide on a store!  This way, you can spend it anyplace, anywhere, anytime you wish...entry is so simple.  Just be a follower of Two Birdies and a B. on either Google Friend Connect, (1st choice) Linky or Networked blogs and leave me a comment  on this post.  Please be sure your avatar is up there as I will be checking :).  Also be sure I have an email so I can contact you if you do not have a blog.

For international blogging buddies, if your banking institution will accept a U.S. bank or U.S. postal money order in U.S funds, please make sure to enter.  But confirm that your bank will honor it.

Winner will be chosen on March 25th by Generator.

Hoping to be back to normal soon.  I caught a really bad bug and have been  out of it the last couple of days.  Just starting to come back to feeling normal.



  1. Happy Blogaversary! I've enjoyed getting to know you through your blog. I follow on Blogger Friend Connect and also Linky! Hope you feel better soon!
    hugs, Linda

  2. Hello Barbara:
    Many congratulations on your first 'blog' anniversary. It is, indeed, the most wonderful way of connecting with so many interesting and talented people in so many different parts of the world.

    And how very generous of you to marking the occasion with the gift of the $50 money order. On this occasion, please do not include us in the draw for we are sure that you will have many very worthy entries and the banks here in Hungary barely recognize any foreign notes, let alone a money order from the USA!!

    Meanwhile, we do hope that you will soon be fully recovered and back to normal good health.

  3. I've been thinking about you and was glad to see your post today! Hope you're feeling lots better.

    Happy Anniversary! ... You've accomplished a lot in your first year, and of course, I'll always remember you as my very first follower and new blogging friend. ":o)

    Take care & feel better soon!

  4. Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you...
    Now blow out the candle!
    xo Cathy
