Y is for Year

One year Blogiversary! Splee!

So of course that means a contest.

A few months after starting this blog, I noticed that I used numbers quite often in my Titles. How many times have I done that since I've started blogging?

Correct answers will be put into a hat and a winner will be chosen. If I get over 50 entries, I'll choose 2 winners. Contest closes Monday, March 16, 9p Colorado Time. One entry per person.

Prizes will be of a fibery nature and, of course, I'll throw in one of my Stitch Savers.

BTW, my Stitch Savers have been featured in the new knitty.com! They are on the Cool Stuff page (scroll way down). Double Splee! You'll notice, I sent Amy singer (knitty editor) a plain one and a customized one with her name on it. Never hurts to suck up a little.

I'm also doing a huge spectacular contest. This Alphabet Soup thing has been pretty fun. Whenever I thought something for the next letter would be a challenge, something fortuitous would pop up! So here it is...

I will give a $50 gift certificate + $26 to the first person who completes the Alphabet Soup challenge. The G.C. will be to the LYS or online store of your choice. The $26 will be donated in the winner's name to the charity of their choice.

Alphabet Soup Challenge
You have to do the complete alphabet consecutively. You don't have to do it every day but you do have to do each letter with no breaks in between for other posts. And they have to be legitimate posts. Can't be "A is for Apple" and then a picture of an apple, know what I mean? And they have to be done on separate days - no posting 26 times in one day.

Ready, Set, Go!

Can't believe it's been a year, Ruth!

Congrats and happy blogaversary!!!
I'm going to guess 12 times you used #'s.

My guess is 26 number titles in your blog. You blog A LOT! The alphabet posting can't happen for me though, I'm working two jobs right now and have three kids, etc. I can barely find time to read other peoples' stuff. Cheers!

Turtle said...

Hmmm, seeing it is numbers and not letters (lol, your abc's!) I am guessing 19 times. I love your abc challenge but so do not have the time right now. good luck though!

Happy birthday to your blog!

I'm going to guess 42 times.

I count 24 "titled" numbers, though one was the word "Two" so I'm not sure that counts...

I love the idea of your Alphabet Soup contest; I've been looking for something to get me blogging again and this may just be the thing to get me going -- regardless of how quickly or slowly I plod along, it sounds like a fun challenge!

I think I counted 31 uses of numbers...not counting everyONE and TWOsday...I mean, Tuesday.

Glad I found your blog...thanks to that Chris and her blog-linking mojo. I've been thinking it would be fun to do an alphabet thingie. Any time limit? I mean, it'll take at least 26 days...But could be longer, right?

Happy Happy Anniv....er....Blogiversary!! I'll guess.....

25?

And I will take you up on your alphabet challenge! I will try to equate it to knitting or a project I am working on, or a crafting project. Is that okay?

Happy Blogiversary! I just had mine, too, but I missed it.

Olga said...

Nell said...

I'm guessing 23 for no good reason. Although, it was Michael Jordan's number! Random enough for you?

I'm going with 26 and Happy Blogiversary

Happy blogiversary!

I think it's 25 (counting years and cardinal numbers that were spelled out, but not ordinal numbers like "first" or numbers that were part of other words like "anyone").
