Happy 3rd Birthday Blog!

Happy 3rd Birthday Blog!

Bring on the cake! I’ve been blogging for three whole years… I had wanted to do a week of fun blogoversary stuff but time is fast disappearing round here. Is there a relative of the sock monster who eats time?

Words of Wisdom

Most people are worrying too much about themselves to worry about what you’re doing.

No one likes everything.

Or all the same things.

Ignore those who tell you you’re blogging wrong, it’s only their opinion.

Blogging should be fun, do what you want to do.

Saying that. Don’t do anything legally iffy.*

And try not to get on the drama llama too often, he spits and kicks.

He also eats penguins for breakfast.

*Some good advice (for UK bloggers) on what needs disclosure (good news, it’s not what most of us are doing). Also credit any photographs that aren’t yours (the llama and cake are mine) and get permission to use if they aren’t Creative Commons licensed. Don’t plagarise, don’t tell porkies and don’t harrass anyone.

So now for the good part. Free books! 3 winners can pick a book from those I’ve reviewed on this blog. As I read across genres there should be something for everyone. Open internationally, entry by Rafflecopter, blah blah blah…

    Happy birthday, Blog, and here's to many more birthdays! Is that really your cake: it's amazing! too tried to make a similar rainbow cake but it ended up with all colours mixed and swirled instead of neat lines.

    1. Ellie

      A colleague made it last year. You need to make each layer in a different tin to keep the colours separate (so helps if you team up with another baker).

    (P.S. I'm certain there is a time monster out there somewhere – somewhere between the size of the sock monster and the single earring bad fairy).

    Happy Blog Birthday indeed (…for the other day. I may turn up a little late, but at least I'm here)! The important question: DID YOU MAKE THAT CAKE FOR YOUR BLOG?! If not then don't even tell me, I'm just going to believe it so I'm not the only one who bakes for her blog haha

    Happy blogoversary! That cake looks amazing. Does it taste as good as it looks?
