Celebrating my four year Blog-iversary!

Holy Cow... I've been a blogger for four years. Yes, four years today! Now, for those of you who start looking at my past posts and see there aren't four years worth, well, you're right. At this blog, there aren't four years, but in December 2008 I entered the BPP- Blogger Protection Program. So if we celebrate the moment my fingers graced the keys of my first blog ever, it was four years ago today. Yes I had a different moniker and a different URL it was me then and it's me now.

I want to thank AlaskaSam for introducing me to the wonderful world of blogging. Oh, he doesn't read here (protecting his own sanity and mine) any more but he showed me what blogging was. he used to write and I thought it was cool and I started and here I am. Back then my intent was to write to keep informed of my life until we got married and if I picked up other readers along the way, then bonus. When we got married, I was going to write about my life in Alaska. Well, we can see how that went completely awry as best laid plans of mice and women in love usually do and none of that happened but the one constant remained and that was my blog.

I have had the great pleasure of meeting some of the most wonderful people in the world through this blogging medium. The people I have been blessed with knowing through blogging are always kind, sweet, nice, and supportive. honest but never brutally so. good people who give encouragement, tell me to get my head out of my ass, who make me laugh, and for some damn, reason, keep coming back here for more of me. Why? I think secretly all my readers live in mental institutions because what sane people would want to read me?

No, really, I am honored and awed that anyone reads me, let alone sends me gifts, gives awards, or becomes followers. Now, don't get me wrong, I am so GLAD you all do, but I've yet to figure out why. But thank you. Thank you for reading and encouraging and just being out there. I am humbled that so many of you are here, sharing my life.

Thanks for putting up with all my rants and raves, my whining, my random observations, my shoes shopping, my failed relationships, my obsession with Johnny Depp, with everything.

And because ya'll rock my world I've decided it's payback time. Check here later today for the details because I'm going to be having my very first GIVEAWAY! And for the next 17 days it's gonna be all about Maggie Mania here at "Shoes/ Purses." That's right, I'm gonna have a GIVEAWAY and the winner will be drawn on St. Patrick's Day. Yeah, I know, none of you are surprised about that!!! Check here tonight for more stuff about the festivities!

Thank you all for reading.

I've gone back and indulged in some of my old stuff and some of my real old stuff in my previous blog and... well, I owe you all.

Thanks for reading.

Thanks for the memories.

Thanks for making me Maggie.

Kisses and cupcakes,
Maggie Mae O'Sullivan

Good Morning Maggie Sweetie...
Happy Blog-Iversary!!!
I don't know how anyone could not fall in love with you. I love to read writings that my blogger friends want to share. It allows us to get to know you, and what better thing than that? Right?

I adore reading what you love to share. You are just the cutest darn thing. I loved the article about your quilt, enjoyed the socks because I too love bright colors. Precious, you are precious.

Who could not love, Do this shoes match this purse? The title alone will get ya.

Have a beautiful day sweetie, and I will be back to see what you have in store for us.

Country hugs and much love..>Sherry

Four years!

I love blogging. It not only makes you feel heard but like the world is full of potential friends. And then, reading a blog week after week, you find yourself wondering, what's so and so up to this week? You like how they describe the world or how they make you laugh. It's therapeutic, addictive and now part of my weekly routine.

Happy Anniversary!
