Blogiversary Plans

I'm so excited because in just a few days HNED will be having its first blogiversary!  It's so amazing that I've been blogging for a whole year now, but I'll save all that gushy stuff for the actual anniversary post.

Because I wasn't sure what to do to celebrate HNED's first birthday, I asked my awesome Followers for their suggestions and one of them suggested that I do some sort of Q&A post.  That sounds pretty cool to me, so that's part of what my anniversary post will include (besides talking about how awesome of a first year this has been).

In order to do that, though, I'll need to call upon all of you - my wonderful Followers - for help.  If there's any question about anything you'd like me to answer (something about myself, or my opinion about some issue, or randomosity, or anything that doesn't belong in any of those categories), then totally comment below and I will answer all of them.

Yep.  All of them.

So comment away!  Ask anything and everything (unless it's something crass or inappropriate.  Don't ask those), and I will answer every last one of them.  If you could get your questions to me by April 18th that would be wonderful.  If you post a question after the 18th, it may or may not end up in the final product.  Just a fair warning.

I also thought it would be cool if HNED managed to get 16,000 pageviews and/or 40 Followers by April 20th (the blogiversary date).  HNED's at just a little bit over 15,000 views and 34 Followers right now, but I think it's totally possible to reach 16,000 views and 40 Followers by the end of next week.  So if you guys would like to help reach that goal by referring HNED to your family and friends, that would be so awesome!

The Q&A is my main plan right now with the view/Follower goals secondary, but if you have any suggestions of something else I could also do to celebrate HNED's birthday then I would totally love to hear them.  Just post your suggestions below, and I'll definitely consider each one.

Well, that's all I've got right at this moment, but I'm looking forward to reading and answering all of your questions.  This will be so much fun!

I hope you guys are having a great week!  God bless!
