Blogiversary Number Four - And A Giveaway!

~~~ This Giveaway Is Now Closed  ~~~

Tomorrow, January 29, 2013, will be my four-year blogiversary! It's hard to believe that four years have passed since I started The Chronicles of Nat and even harder to believe that I've actually kept up with the writing. I want to thank all of you for hanging in there with me all these years. Thanks for stopping by and reading and thanks for your comments and words of encouragement. Your comments make me laugh and your questions often help me think of other things to write about. I haven't been the best blogger in 2013, but hopefully things will turn around soon and I'll be back to a normal blogging schedule soon.

I'm writing about my blogiversary a day early because I want to give everyone the whole week to enter this year's blogiversary giveaway. As a thank you for all the support you have given me these four years, I'll be giving away one copy of "Southern Living the Official SEC Tailgating Cookbook: Great Food Legendary Teams Cherished Traditions". I bought one of these at Christmas to give away for a round of dirty Santa but ended up keeping it for myself and giving away something else instead. This book has a lot of great recipes for sandwiches, appetizers, canapes, and beverages. It also includes photos and stories from all 14 SEC schools. Even if you don't like football or tailgating, I think you will enjoy this cookbook because it really has a lot of great recipes in it that can be used for any type of party.

I wish I had one to give each and every one of you, but, alas, I don't, I only splurged for one. All you have to do to enter is leave a comment on this post. You can shout out happy blogiversary, or you can suggest a topic for me to write about, or say what you like best about stopping in here each week or just say hi; but, you must leave a comment to be entered. The contest will stay open through Thursday night at 11:59 p.m. and I will announce a winner on Friday, February 1, which also happens to be my birthday! The winner will be selected using

Thanks again for stopping by each week and good luck!

Awesome blogiversary give away! I love visiting your blog - you always crack me up - whether it's a specific topic or random ramblings. Here's some topics for you to consider...I'm curious about the change in churches, and what ever happened to the coworker who got free rides into work for a while...assuming her car got fixed. Happy Blogging in 2013! You and my Megan have the same birthday :)

Congratulations on the blogiversary. I may not be the best at reading consistently, but I check it out at least once a week. I love keeping up with you and your life! My favorites are the book and movie reviews! Keep up the good work!
