I’ve been blogging for 2 YEARS!
Can you believe it?
Wooden Window Sills, in all it’s shining -food, lifestyle and adventuring- glory, has been live and kicking for a whole 2 years! Happy blog Anniversary to me!
I’m actually really chuffed I’ve stuck at it, and got so much out of it – I never would have guessed how many hours it would take to photograph, edit and write posts, but nor would I have thought I’d enjoy the process as much as I have. I started blogging because I loved to read other people’s blog posts, and that really hasn’t changed!
I’ve met some absolutely wonderful blogging friends who all share this common interest of sharing a little piece of our lives on the internet, I’m learning to improve my photography, I’ve learnt about branding and coding and social media, I even gave in and signed up to Twitter! I totally understand, some people get why people write a blog, some don’t, but hey, that’s the spice of life isn’t it?!
If you haven’t ever explored back into the archives, my first ever post is here, as we explored Clovelly in North Devon to celebrate spending 730 days together as a couple. It’s mad to think we’ve doubled that time together and since then I’ve posted another 222 times, covering everything and anything to do with food, lifestyle, adventures, books and blogs!
It you fancy a nose, my top three posts so far have been:
- How I came to meet A. Husband – the charming story of my hilariously awkward first date with Adam
- I’m a… – A thought piece on whether our job, family and friends, or hobbies and interests reflect how we define who we are
- Timothy Pricklepin – possible the cutest photoshoot I’ve ever done, featuring Timmy, my brother’s pygmy hedgehog.
If you’ve been here from the very beginning or if you’ve only just been lured in by the giveaway, thank you. Thank you for being here and supporting me, and for all the comments and messages and conversations that have been sparked as a result of the ramblings and musings I’ve written. It still amazes me that even one person actually sits and reads the things I have to say.
As has become a glorious tradition, to mark the celebration of 2 years, I’m running another giveaway to win some delicious homemade cake (or biscuits or brownies or macarons or tarts or bread…) of your choice, either delivered lovingly by hand to your doorstep if you live close enough, or packaged neatly and safely into a box to post to you. (For this reason I’m afraid it’s only open to UK residents.)
Why cake you ask?
Well I love a bit of baking (did the Bake Off Bake Along in 2015 and 2016 not give that away?!) and who wouldn’t like to receive something hand baked in the post – plus the choice of type and flavour is entirely up to you! The competition is open to EVERYONE, so feel free to tick off as many off the list below to better your chances. The closing date is my 25th birthday – 11 April 2017 *hint hint* and I’ll get in touch with the winner to discuss all things bakey one they’ve been randomly selected. Good Luck!
To inspire you, this was the fatless sponge cake I made for the winner Ellie last year…
