Blog Birthday + small giveaway

Friday, January 11, 2013

It's official. Random Ramblings is now three years old. Yesterday the 10th was its birthday, and I am so excited that even after a few years, we're still here! Blogging and reading slumps come and go, but the readers and followers of this little blog seem to always stick with me. So thank you if you are one of the 682 followers that have stayed around here, whether you've been here all three years or just followed recently. I loved hearing your thoughts, opinions, recommendations, suggestions, advice, arguments, rants, and raves, and I am looking forward to hearing more of all of the above in the coming years.

Also, I haven't done a giveaway in a while so I thought I'd do a small celebratory one. All you have to do is to be a follower of this blog. Write down your preferred contact email down below. If you've been reading here for a while - just out of curiosity -  please let me know if you have any particular favorite post/series of posts on here. If you don't recall, an email will do. The first prize is a book or item of your choice at Book Depository for up to $20. If there's more than 50 entries, one can win a book/item of choice for up to $10 worth at Book Depository.

Thanks again. Happy New Year! <3>


  1. Congratulations chuck! I don't have any favourite posts off the top of my head, but I love to drop by and just... see what you've been ramblin' about! I'm a big fan of rambling (just ask my family), so it's always nice to pop in and check out what a fellow rambler has been up to of late. :D

    I'm glad you're blogging regularly again, Jillian! =) Happy Blogoversary!

    My favourite part of Random Ramblings wasn't really a specific feature. It was your willingness to have conversations in the combox. It's the reason I consider you a friend and keep coming back to check your blog!
