It's Time To CELEBRATE!!! (yes...there is a giveaway....)

Okay...guess what is happening this month....

No. Really. Guess!!!!

Okay! Okay! I'll just tell you!!!! LOTS OF THINGS!!!!

Yesterday was Barack Obama's birthday, but you probably already knew that. (Personally, I think we should all have the day off on the President's birthday, but that's just me! LOL!)

BUT...even though that is sort of a big deal there are even BIGGER things going on!!!!

Next week will be MY half-birthday!!!! Hee-hee....maybe that's not so big, but it seems worth a celebration to me!!!!

AND....Today. On This VERY DAY. THIS IS THE DAY.........

.....This is the day that Just Jingle was born one year ago!!!!!! YEAH!!!!!!! Yup, folks! It is officially my bloggiversary!

Here it is: THIS POST is where it all began! And I haven't SHUT UP since! LOL!

First of all, I want to thank my awesome readers who have been hear from the beginning...both of you. LOL!

Second of all, I want to thank my awesome Mom for reading my blog. Yes, it means I have to censor myself a bit, but it's WAY cool to have a Mom that cares that much! I know lots of moms who can't even DEFINE blog nevermind read any! My Mom is officially cooler than all of them. She totally reads my blog!

And, of course, I want to thank each and every one of you who have jumped on along the way! It has been an incredible ride so far and I hope to continue on and grow and get better and stuff and junk. LOVE YOU GUYS!!!!!

AND....because I love you guys so much, I am TOTALLY doing a giveaway to celebrate my 1 Year Blogiversary!!!!!

This one is for my readers - old and new alike! So, here's the deal....the contest will run through the end of the MONTH! Yup! I really want to celebrate! To enter, you must first comment on THIS post (the one you are reading) with how long you have been reading my blog and what you like about it and anything you would like to see more of, less of, or something I haven't done that you would love to see here on Just Jingle.

Then....every comment you leave on a new post after today all the way until the end of the month will count as another entry. You don't have to say anything fancy, just contribute to the conversation in a meaningful way!

Also, because I am SUPER excited, I would love for you to spread the word, so if you have a blog and you post a bit about my Blogiversary and link it back here I will give you 5 extra entries for that, too, 'cause I love ya and stuff!

Now....what are they playing for, Carl????

(Yes, I am aware that I listen to WAY too much NPR....moving on...)

In Carl Castle's voice: "Well, Peter, Just Jingle readers are playing for a fabulous prize package! The package will include bits and pieces of Jingle's FAVORITE things!!!"

What are my favorite things, you ask? Hmmmm.....I guess we will have to wait and see! But be rest assured, there will probably be candy in there! LOL! I will post reminders and peaks throughout the month to keep you all excited about it all!!!

Due to shipping costs, I do, unfortunately, have to limit this one to US addresses only. Sorry. :-(

Oh, and as for the pickle...I have NO idea! I got that photo free from this site and it cracked me up, so I decided to celebrate with a pickle!

IDK....seemed like a good idea at the time!

    I've been reading your fun for a couple of months now and I always enjoy my visits.

    And I celebrate my Half-Birthday too!!!!!!!!!!!!! It started when a couple of my childhood friends' smart Mommies decided to throw their birthday parties in the summer because their actual birthdays are between Christmas and New Year's.

    With a quick look at the calender I discovered that my half birthday is St Patrick's Day!!! Just one more reason to raise a pint or two in March ;)

  18. Just found your blog, linked up from 2Peas. So far, loving it! You've got a lot of spirit, and I look forward to reading more of your blog.

    Congrats on the blogoversary! : )

    You are an answer on the AMR scavenger hunt!!! HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!!!

  23. Congrats on one fabulous year of blogging! I know it doesn't seem like I read your blog but I do! I just use google reader to do it and I'm too lazy to comment. I know. That makes me a total blog stalker. :( I do love all the neat things you point me to though! Thanks for that!

    I found the answer to a question for the AMR Scavenger Hunt! :)

  34. I've been reading your blog on and off for a few months...pretty much ever since I found UYS...but I don't comment much, and I'm sorry. It's funny, somehow I get "directed" to your site all the time, maybe I should just become a follower already!

  35. Happy 'versary friend.

    You're silly and upbeat and I'm odd and melancholy. That's why we make a perfect fruit salad.
    Let's see...how long have I known you? About three months maybe? Yep, about three months.
    I normally don't care for happy smiley people but for some reason, you are addictive. I love coming to visit you and just getting caught up in your windstorm of giggles.
    Thanks for all the smiles :)

  36. Congrats on your Blogoversary! I have not been reading your blog for as long as everyone else has been on here since this is my first official visit tonight. But I enjoyed reading it so much that I became a follower tonight and I will definately be back to read more. Can't wait for your next post. This is definately one of the best blogs that I have come across.
