One Year Blogiversary...WIN MY STORE!!!


WOW!!! And Double WOW!!!!!

It’s so hard for me to believe that it’s almost my One-Year BLOGIVERSARY!

Yep, I did my very first blog post on Dec. 31, 2011.

What a year it’s been! 

I jumped into blogging and TPT Land with both feet and I have enjoyed every minute of the ride.

I had NOOOOO idea what I was doing when I started.  I’ve still got so much ahead that I want to do to improve.

However, here are a few things I’ve learned on this journey that might help you…

1) Invest in a CAMERA!!!

 (The more pictures you post, the more you have to add to PINTEREST! ;-)

2) Try to make each post enjoyable reading. 

(Ask yourself, would I want to read this?)

3) People LOVE ideas and free stuff!!

 (Get real…WHO DOESN’T???)

4) Spread the love by leaving comments on others’ blog.

(It’s the little things in life that brings joy!)

5)  Don’t be afraid to ask questions to learn all you can. 

(After all, teachers are the most sharing human beings on the planet!!

Except maybe cannibals who happen to share a little TOO much!)

******************************************

I wanted to do a little something different for my blogiversary. 

(You will notice that GIVE is part of the word!)

Therefore, one lucky winner will…
 
Yep, you read it right.  One lucky winner will win EVERY product in my TPT store!!!

2nd Place will win a custom Classroom Decor Package.

3rd Place will win All Year Spiral Math Review.


Just complete the Rafflecopter below for chances to win.  Be sure to leave your e-mail so that I can let you know if you are the lucky winner!
 
 
Also, don't forget, I am still offering my

I would like to invite you to come over to the New Year Linky Party I'm hosting at http://teachingisagift.blogspot.ca/2012/12/2013-new-year-linky-party.html and join the over 100 TPT authors and teacher bloggers who have already linked up!
