The Diaper Diaries

but hopefully not full of crap

Things I Love Thursday- YOU!! June 4, 2008

Filed under: Blogging,Holidays,Things I Love Thursdays — thediaperdiaries @ 10:29 pm

 I realized today (Wed) that it is actually my one year blogging anniversary!!! How fun is that? And it almost slipped by unnoticed. So today I am paying tribute to you, my wonderful readers.

Some of you have been with me from the beginning. Mom and the hubby were the first two to comment cause they are required to love me and my blog, but then I got a few strangers who started reading and are still loyal commentors. And then a few of my friends started blogs and I found a bunch of friends already had blogs and an obsession began. Now even the hubby has a blog.

451 posts, 4777 comments (a bloggy carnival or 2 will do your numbers wonders) and even 4299 spam comments (thanks to viagra and the sex challenge) later, here we are. So thank you all for going on this little adventure with me. I sincerely love every comment and am trying to get better about following up on them. You have made this so fun and I have enjoyed making some “bloggy” friends. Weird little thing, this world wide web.

You know what I want for my anniversary? More comments!!! This is officially your day to come out of the woodwork and tell me you love me :). And I am not above bribery. I am offering up one of my mother’s beautiful scripture names personalized as you wish. If you have always wanted one of these during the bloggy giveaways, but there were way too many people entered, here is your chance. I don’t have near that many readers 🙂 The contest will end next Wednesday at midnight when we will begin celebrating another unnamed special occasion.

If you don’t want to be entered in the contest, leave a comment anyway and tell me not to enter you. The goal is comments people. I want to wake up and be flooded with them. Cause comments are like crack to a blogger and I can’t get enough (note: I have never actually tried crack, nor do I condone it’s use, but I couldn’t think of another analogy). Wait I just did. Comments are like chocolate to a women who is in the throes of PMS. Come to think of it…chocolate would be an excellent anniversary gift. Forget the comments, send chocolate 🙂

    Happy Anniversary 🙂 I’m sitting here listening to my husband as he’s watching the hockey game (on tape) since we had Bible Study tonight. I cheated & discovered that you must be THRILLED. 🙂 🙂

  3. Erin Says:

    I love reading your blog (which I have been doing for awhile now.) I even have a link to you from mine! You are a great writer. I love your sense of humor. Your post about the “Musical Season” cracked me up. I want a t-shirt when you make one! Happy Anniversary.

    Oh. My. Gosh…

    I saw this on a give away. And then, last week I searched the internet for literally DAYS to find them. Couldn’t remember where I found them. It was bad. (bad.) and I needed one. And now, well, it’s too late maybe. But I still need one. How long do they take? (did I mention I need one????)

    And: Happy Anniversary!!! Yay for blogging, reading and commenting!

  5. Krista Says:

    Happy Anniversary! One of these days I will order one of those prints… hmmm, I think maybe for my sister in law. I think she would appreciate it and her birthday is in August (I can remember because she’s my hubby’s twin!)

  6. Maria Says:

    Happy Blogiversary! Double celebration for you because hockey season is OFFICIALLY over now!! You know I’d love to have a ScriptYours for the baby’s room! Love the one Princess Pigtails has in her room!

  7. I would love to win one!! I’ve very much enjoyed reading your blog for the past year… by the way, how do you track the number of your comments?

  8. Denise Says:

    I’ll do anything for one of your Mom’s scripture names!! Congrats!!

  9. Heather Says:

    If I could send you chocolates I would!

    Happy Bloggy Anniversary! I love reading your blog – you make me 🙂


  10. LeeAnn Says:

    Happy Anniversary! I found your blog awhile back and really enjoy reading it. Your mom’s scripture names are beautiful too!

  11. Kathryn Says:

    Happy Anniversary! You are always a joy to read.

  12. Auntie S Says:

    It is way easier to send a coment than to send chocolate! I love reading your blog – keeps me up to date with your family activities and informed of neat products. I love your money saving tips. I grew up hearing my father’s favorite words – “Save your money.” He would be so proud of you! Congrats! Love you and your blog!

  13. Not so interested in the giveaway, but happy to leave a comment! Congratulations on your anniversary!

  14. Bluestocking Says:

    Happy blogaversary! No scripture name neccesary.

  15. SAHMmy Says Says:

    Happy Anniversary! I seriously thought you’d been blogging for years–your blog is so organized and professional. Way to go–hope to read you for many years to come!

  16. Jean Says:

    Happy Blog World Anniversary!!

  17. Candace (Mama Mia) Says:

    Thanks for the shout out!! Congrats on one year. Holy moly- over 4,000 comments!!!! Love your blog and I’ll continue to be a faithful reader.

  18. Jan Says:

    I’ve been reading for several months. We ran across your site somewhere. may when you were posting The Challenge? My DH also enjoys reading it. Keep up the humor!

  19. Devon Says:

    YAY! Congrats on a year of sharing yourself with the www!

    Right now, the best analogy to me is that comments are like pitocin to a woman carrying an already 9 lb baby!!! That’s all that’s on my mind these days! I’m SO ready for this labor to start AND for the epidural once it’s time for that. I’m not sure I’m up for pushing out a 9+ pounder without it! 🙂

    Sorry… 🙂 I hope that this year has fulfilled your needs for adult contact while being a super SAHM. I hope that this year has allowed you to express yourself in a way that you can’t do just anywhere these days. I hope that this year has brought you joy and fun like never before amidst the laundry, dishes, and dusting of normal life. 🙂

    God Bless year #2!

  20. erin g Says:

    happy anniversary! and I was going to comment even before I saw about the contest. But I NEED one of thos scripture names and I don’t want to wait until Christmas to buy them for other people!

    I love your blog and your wit – mommying definitely takes a sense of humor, and you’ve got it!

  21. sunshinekmp Says:

    I always look forward to new posts on your site. I have you in my feed reader as well as my WordPress dashboard. You always have great information and you make it fun with your stories. I’m thinking about trying to start the “sex challenge” again because we could use it and we didn’t participate well enough before! Thanks for your blog.

  22. Jessica Says:

    I would love to send you chocolate. So would my husband if he only knew… 🙂 Seriously, I found you through a link (about the sex challenge) on my mothering forum and have been hooked ever since.

  23. bigbinder Says:

    Happy Anniversary Diaper Diaries!! I remember when you were just a few weeks old, the excitement in Jill’s eyes as she told me, “I LOVE MY BLOG”. She has never looked back. And thanks for leading me into the world of blogging 🙂

  24. Michelle Says:

    I read your blog daily – thanks for the funny and thought provoking posts.

  26. Courtney Williams Says:

  27. Jerri Says:

    Happy Anniversary! I just started coming here and I love your sense of humor. I saw “Diaper Diaries” on a blogroll and I had to check it out because I love alliteration. I immediately subscribed and I’ve been laughing ever since!

    I’d love to win one of your mother’s scripture name even though I don’t know what it is!

  28. Cleo Says:

    Happy Anniversary!!! I stumbled on to your blog about four weeks ago and I love it. I look forward to it every morning! 🙂 This is the first time I have commented and I would love to be in the running for your moms scripture names. Again congrats and keep the emails coming!!!

  31. Heather Says:

    Happy bloggyversary! Love you and your blog!

  32. Julie Says:

    Happy Blog Anniversary! I get your blog updates in my email! Yay! I also happen to love the Script-Yours that your mom makes. They are beautiful…I’ve ordered a couple, but a free one would be great. : )

  33. jodi Says:

    i just found you recently…I think through WFMW if I remember correctly…you have such great humor and I look forward to reading more…happy bloggy anniversary! yippee!!

  34. Heather Says:

    Happy Anniversary! I love your blog – and I love that it’s connected us in real life, too. Just wanted to send you love – but I don’t need to be entered into the contest…I”m not sure I want to have “Starbuck” written in scripture. 🙂

  35. Tracy Says:

    Happy one-year anniversary!

    I’m not sure how long I’ve been reading here – several months at least. But I read every post, even if I don’t comment all that often!

  36. thecharacter Says:

    Well, CONGRATULATIONS!!! Awesome stats on the numbers! I am one that reads but has only commented once=(!! I do love reading your blog! Count me in the contest!

  37. Lori Says:

    Happy 1st Anniversary and GOOOOOOOOO Red Wings!

  38. Jackie Says:

    A whole year…that’s pretty awesome! I like to drop in here and see what is going on, but I don’t think I have commented before, so in lieu of chocolate, this is my present to you! 🙂

  39. Here’s some chocolate for the Blogaholic 🙂

  40. Cathy Says:

    My “google alert” for frugal brought up your blog today. What a treasure! Reading just one day tells me you have a blog worth returning to read. I love your “name scriptures”. Is it possible to order one? I have a dear friend who would love one – heck – I have lots of friends who would love seeing their name in scripture!

  41. karenamundson Says:

    well I hope you know how much i love your blog! in fact, soon i will blog about my copier confession and how i somewhat copy your blog ideas. 🙂 i’ll let you know when i write it.

  42. SarahMay Says:

    Okay, I’ll de-lurk! I’ve been reading your blog for several months and it’s become a favorite. Originally I linked over from Frugal Fridays or Works-for-Me-Wednesdays (don’t remember which). Now you’re on my mental “blogs-to-visit-regularly” list! I like your sense of humor and down-to-earth attitude… and the fact that you post almost every day!

    And what the heck, go ahead and enter me in the contest!

  43. stacey Says:

    I love celebrations! Congratulations on yours!

  44. Amanda Says:

    Found you from SAHMommy and have been clicking over ever since. Keep up the great work! 😉

  45. Stephanie Says:

    I am a lurker that reads daily. I found your blog through Works for Me Wednesday and your s*x challenge caught my eye. Love it. Hmm – not the challenge. Ok, maybe the challenge was good too, but I was really referring to the blog LOL. Happy one year anniversary!

  46. Jen Says:

    Happy Blogiversary! I’m new to the whole blogging world and recently found your blog (not sure where) and I really like it!! I’ll definitely be stopping by regularly!

  47. Shannon H Says:

    I’m de-lurking to say (per your request) that I love your blog and in fact you are in my top 10, as I’ve just returned from a week without the internet (I know you’re wondering how did I survive) and you are among the first blogs I’m catching up on. Happy Anniversary!

  48. erin g Says:

    if I make another comment, am I entered twice? just thought I’d throw that out there before midnight. 🙂

  49. erin g Says:

    why does that moster show up when I comment? did I select it as my avatar on wordpress or something? or is it just a fun feature of your blog? I see other people have them too, to that must be it.
