First giveaway is live – enter to win HERE!
Goodness gracious, I can hardly believe this but I've been typing from this side of the screen and on over to you for exactly five years this month. WOW!
What I completely started on a whim turned into something I never would have imagined, and I can hardly believe I'm still hanging out here with you each day. In case you haven’t figured this out (~ahem~), I’m just a mom. I don’t have any degrees in marketing, advertising, or journalism . . . in fact, I’m in sheer amazement each day that so many folks take time to read what’s here on PPP. (It’s all I can do just to keep this technologically-challenged brain on top of things most days!)
Blogging has changed my life so much these last five years that I can hardly imagine life without it. It's given this kind-of-shy-goofy-not-very-confident mom a little presence on the internet, taught me so much about what I'm really passionate about, instilled in me the importance of some serious determination, and been just a wonderful gift (despite the ridiculous number of hours it's taken to keep it together. Yikes!)
I looked back to my very first post back in October of 2009 on “publixpennypincher.blogspot.com” (when I made myself “pretend post” for a few weeks to see if I even enjoyed sharing deals at all.) Here's what it looked like . . . 😉
(seriously folks, we've come a long way ~ it took me a whopping six months just to learn how to hyperlink!)
I feel so incredibly blessed to have this virtual home here with you, and am simply overwhelmed that you take time to read what's here each day. I love how this has completely changed our family's ability to give as well as beefed up our children's college funds, and having you all to chat with each day has helped me through some crazy difficult times.
(I know that sounds nuts, but you all are just the nicest cheering section!)
To top that all off, last week we reached ONE HUNDRED AND FIFTY THOUSAND FACEBOOK FANS (WOW!) So, of course we need a little giveaway to celebrate, don't you think? 😉
Thank you so much for sharing this little spot with me each day – I'm so very thankful for you!
And on a very important side note, I do NOT do manage all of this by myself most days. A big thanks to my friends Cheryl, Misty, Susan and Staci who help out with various tasks around here when I need them, and a HUGE thanks to Shannon (who y'all know is a rockstar.) 😉
