Happy Blogiversary..........to TCB! GIVE AWAY!

Happy Birthday, blogiversary, .........happy anything to TCB! (giveaway alert at the bottom of the post)

Can you believe it? Well, you probably haven't given it much thought.........and honestly I haven't either, or I would have planned a big honkin blog party.........with cake. Lots of cake!

Today's Creative Blog is 2 yrs old! I have logged more hours than I'd like to admit, but it's been worth just about everyone of them.


I love bringing new creative inspiration to you all. I love promoting creative people. I love making someone feel good about what they do, hopefully feel special for the talent they have.......hopefully helping them realize how talented they are.


That's one thing I have learned this past two years..........I'm not as talented as I thought. LOL But it's OK. It gives me something to whine about. And you know what else I have learned? We are ALL creative if we just relax a bit. There's no grading system. It's all in how it makes us feel.


I love how bloggers get so excited to be featured! I love how they can't wait to share it with their readers. I love it when they can't wait to post the featured blogger button. I still can't understand the ones who don't post it.........all I can come up with is they're not a show dog like myself. :) But isn't that why we blog?


OK, on with the good stuff. I will be doing giveaways all week. Today's giveaway is a one month free listing on our new widget.
Your blog will be shown on possibly more than 100 blogs! Many bloggers have claimed that their visits have doubled in the one month they have posted with us. You choose one of the many categories you want your blog listed under.

So leave me a comment telling me how much you love TCB and I will place you in the running. :)

I will choose a winner by tomorrow, Tuesday at 5pm. (pacific time)


Oh, and one more thing? Thank you! Thank you for reading........and thank you for posting my other button........the super duper cute one on the bottom........way down there. The code is there for your taking.

Happy blog birthday!! I have loved finding creative women around the blog world from you, so thank you!! I would love to be able to log in here with my blog blog - but there isn't an option for signing in with my name and url. So it goes to my family blog on blogger instead.

Happy Bogiversary! I love celebrations, especially if it is for a blog. Silly? Well, maybe a little. Thank you for all your wonderful posts. I really wish I were more creative, and now, from having read your blog for over a year now, I am beginning to look at things to find their potential, instead of how they actually look. That's progress, right?
