I have some pretty exciting news – my blog is almost one year old! I’ve said it a million times, but starting this blog is one of the best things that has ever happened to me! Because of blogging I have made fantastic new friends, had incredible opportunities, and use my free time a lot more productively than I otherwise would. But you’ve heard me gush on about blogging enough, I’m sure!
For a quick recap, I thought I could share my top ten most popular posts for the year! (spoiler: the majority are college related)

So, I planned on celebrating my one year with a huge giveaway – but that didn’t necessarily work out. I contacted several companies in early December in hopes that a few might like to sponsor the giveaway; some said I didn’t give them enough time given the holidays, others didn’t respond. So I plan on celebrating my birth-week with a week of giveaways in six months, instead! I’ve learned from my mistakes and I am going to be preparing months in advance!
Being in a celebratory mood, I decided to still host some sort of giveaway to thank all of you lovely folks for sticking around and reading my blog! It may not be much, but for my one year I am giving away a $25 dollar Amazon gift card so you can pick out whatever your heart desires!
My one year anniversary is actually on January 28th, so I decided to start one week before the date, and end one week after so plenty of people have the opportunity to enter!
In addition to the Amazon gift card, if a blogger wins I will do all sorts of social media shoutouts for you, too! That includes Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Tumblr – my four most active social media accounts! Hopefully I can get some more eyes on your blog by doing so!
In addition to this giveaway, keep your eyes peeled because I am taking part in a super fun giveaway on Instagram in a week or two! Thanks for sticking with me for a year!
