one

Today, I have been blogging for one year.

One year ago today I planted spring’s first seeds, fell and sprained my ankle while running and was pregnant and didn’t know it.

Little did I know that the most substantial changes of my entire life would occur right out there on the world wide web. I started blogging because I like to take photos and I like to write. It is like an extra bonus that people actually tune into dig this chick. So I guess I feel like saying thanks.

In honor of my one year blogiversary, I would like to give a gift. Here is how it will work: leave a comment on this post within the next few days and I will randomly select a winner. I will then post the winner who will then e mail me their address. I will send said winner one of the following (their choice): a jar of green tomato relish or a jar of smokin’ plum butter.

    One year already? Reading your blog,(and Bug’s), is part of my daily routine..get up, let dogs out, make coffee, feed dogs, read Nici’s blogs….just like that! I love it.
    Happy B-Day!

    Happy blogaversary, with many more to come!

  18. Jane Marie says:

    I’ve never heard of green tomato relish or smokin plum butter. Where have I been?
    Congrats on your completing one year.

  19. If I’m lucky someday Flash Pointe will look as slammin’ and be as enjoyable to read as “dig” is.

    Cheers on year one of many more to come.

    Sorry I missed you last weekend. Hope to be back up in April.

    XOXO – Claire

    hey- I started reading your blog months ago when you were featured on Today’s Momma website which was sent to me from a friend. I never really went back but got hooked on to your blog(s) and check them weekly. I’m a 31yr old stay at home mom and live in Seattle with my husband and 18mo. old son. My inlaws live off rattlesnake drive in Missoula! I love reading about your MT posts, your Bug, your creativity, your garden, your cooking, sewing projects, and everything else. I feel much better saying hi…makes me feel more like a normal chick and less like a blog stocker…so hi I’m Sarah! Send the plum butter westbound.

  25. sarah says:

    wow nics, i can’t believe it’s been a year. how time flies. i love getting to read about your life every (or, almost every) day. makes us feel less far away!
    love you!

  26. paige says:

    Don’t pick me! (Because your bestest friends and family should be excluded from the contest.) But I still wanted to say that I love you and am proud of you. Keep being creative, it is inspiring for us all.

    Love,

  27. So, as Nici pointed out during a conversation last night, after reading this, I forgot to post a comment. Probably discludes me, but I wanted to say congrats on a year of fun! It is really exciting to see what the next year will bring in blogland and in life!

  30. Hi, just wanted to mention, I loved this post. It was practical. Keep on posting!
