To Celebrate ONE YEAR of Bloggin'!



Dear Readers:

I would like to share a pint of my seedless RASPBERRY jam with one of you, my faithful, friendly, fun readers!

I started my blog on August 3, 2008 and it's been quite a FUN year! I am so happy to have met so many new friends and garnered readers from around the world. I am amazed every time I take a look at the widget that shows all the places from which people take a peek into this little old blog!

I would love it if ALL of my readers would enter this drawing! I will be drawing a winner on AUGUST 3 to celebrate my FIRST BIRTHDAY AS A BLOGGER! (I would love it even more if ALL of you could win, but I didn't make that much jam!)


YOU ONLY HAVE THIS WEEKEND TO REGISTER....I'll draw late Monday night, the day of my blog birthday.


If you do not have a blog, you can enter as anonymous and put your name and put your email address in your comment like this:

Please enter...I think you'll LOVE this sweet little pint of RASPBERRY jam....lovingly made by me in my (old) farmhouse kitchen!


Your bloggy friend,
Joni
