Will I hit 1 Million visitors today?

Pin It Now!

This is sooo exciting for me...I think I may reach my 1 Millionth visitor sometime today!!! It's too bad that I won't know who it is and that I can't make the horns blow, the bells ring and confetti fly out of your monitor if it's you but just know if there were a way for me to do that I WOULD!!! Look right now at the counter on the top right sidebar...if it is exactly right on 1,000,000 then you are THAT person...so just imagine the horns, the bells and the confetti! And also imagine that you have won a $1,000 shopping spree for my online store! I know what you're thinking. "What online store?" Oh I forgot to mention that I bought the domain name for an online store which will be coming soon!!!! The shop name is a secret for now but it doesn't have "Romantic" or "Home" in the name! It took me forever to come up with a business name but I'm really happy with the one I chose. And no, I'm not really giving a $1000 shopping spree...that was just a joke!


To celebrate both these huge milestones I'm going to be hosting a giveaway party once a month, every month for the next year! It's my way of saying thank you to all of who visit my blog! I'm also going to be putting up a Mr. Linky on the 2nd Monday of every month for those of you who would like to join in and have a giveaway on your blog too! I'll have that up on Sunday along with my giveaway for this month. The giveaways can be something small, even something that belongs to you that you no longer want and would like to pass on.

Feel free to grab the graphic above to use on your blog if you are joining in on the giveaway party. I would like to thank Amber from The Shabbee Chick Designs for designing this for me. She also designed my blog and I highly recommend her!

I'll be away from my computer most of the day today because my department at work is going to an off site meeting at a winery so I'll probably miss seeing that counter click over to 1 million! You know I'll be thinking about it though!!!

Congratulations on your upcoming 1 millionth visitor! As a new blogger, that is so difficult for me to comprehend.

Yep, I said "new" blogger. I finally took the plunge and hit the publish button today! I would be so happy if you would stop by and visit when you have time. I am planning a HUGE, multi-prize giveaway SOON to celebrate but I might have to change what I was planning so I can join in your giveaway instead/too.

I'm also excited to hear the details about your new on-line store! :)

Joanne Kennedy said...

Wow! One Million! That is just almost to much to comprehend! Congrats to you!!!!

Can't wait to see your new online store. I'm sure it will be full of great treasures.

You have come along way since you started your blog.

You have now been in magazines, newspapers, tv and now a store. What's next? You must write a book or get your own tv show. You would be an instant hit!

It's my honor to have you as my blogland friend.

Hugs,
Joanne

Well shucks! I came by too early. It's at 998,814. Surely it will be today that you reach the million! What fun your giveaway party will be. I'm actually having a giveaway now on my blog as part of the 3rd Annual Cottage Charm Giveaway. ♥

Penny For Your Thoughts said...

My Dear Miss Cindy,

Congratulations on both huge events! I love the fact that you have finally "gone and done it"! Not only have you reached "millions", but you've also finally realized a huge part of your dream by purchasing a domain name for an online store. No matter the name, if it is you're stuff, you'll be fine. And just remember, you can always sell your stuff whenever you get bored with it, and that simple act alone can justify so many other important purchases! I'm so proud of you!!! A dream come true for you. I praise and complement your success. I would like to participate in a giveaway. Would you please email me with how that works? Privacy is sort of important, if you get my drift.

Hugs, and congrats! Penny Sue
