Guess what?! Today is my two year blogiversary! Can you believe it? I would not have guessed what would become of this place when I sat at my kitchen table sipping coffee on that Sunday morning two years ago. I didn't think TWO YEARS later I'd have made friends across the country ((some of whom I've met in person)) and throughout the world. I couldn't have dreamed of the community I would be part of from setting up this little corner of the internet. I didn't even really know anything about branding or HTML ((not that I'm an expert by any means now)), but I have come a long way.
In March, I did a series on the lessons I've learned from blogging. My husband has done some designing for me and taught me most everything I know about HTML code. I seriously couldn't have done it without him! These are some of the blog banners over the past two years:
Which one is your favorite? I still love the frames, but I also love the current look, which I created myself. Have you ever wondered where the name "dot in the city" came from? I don't actually think I've blogged about it before. When I started this blog, we were living in a neighborhood of Boston known as Dorchester or "dot" for short. I liked the play on words with it being an actual place or a person ((me)), even though I have never been called Dot ((except of course for the sporadic readers who leave comments calling me such which is always good for a chuckle)).
So, how about a giveaway to celebrate the occasion?! Like I said earlier, I am so grateful for be part of the blogging community and have met some incredible bloggers and handmade shop owners. Here is the lineup of awesome giveaway items...
