Yes, readers. Today is The Greening of Gavin blog’s third birthday. This blog was ‘born’ on the 13th of February 2008, which seems like such a long time ago. I remember being very excited about setting up the blog about a week before, doing the layout and adding in the widgets and site counter. I posted my article called “Why I choose to lead a sustainable lifestyle and rushing out to tell all my friends and family about it. I think in the first week there were 10 visits. Heck, I was just excited that anyone was reading my musings.
805 posts later, and over 2500 visits a week, this blog and I personally have grown. Not larger or taller (I have lost 10kg since I started), but a lot wiser about the way the world works I suppose. All it took was a desire to share what I had learnt since September 2006, when I had my green epiphany, and continue to learn every day from here on in.
Now it wouldn’t be a blog without readers and all of your comments have been inspiring for me and spur me on. So to celebrate our achievement, I am going to have a giveaway! More like a lottery, and yes, there is a prize. To make the draw fair, I will use a random number generator and pick a random comment below as the winner.
So, if you would like to win the handy little book titled “The Green Garden – How to live well, be green and make a difference“, by Tanya Ha worth A$9.95, then please leave a comment below letting me know which post out of all 805 of them is your favourite and why. Not only may you get something out of it, but I will receive valuable feedback as well. I will post to any country on the planet Earth at my cost because I want to give something back.
So what are you waiting for, enter away, and thanks again for following the adventures of a neo-hippy, free thinking realist.
