But it's been for a good reason. Marianne and I have been working frantically on our First Anniversary Party celebration! You can go check out all the fun at The Long and the Short of It and follow the banners :-)
Not only do we have twenty-six wonderful author's joining together to help us celebrate, but we are giving away a Grand Prize of a $50 Amazon Gift Certificate. And, as a special birthday present for our readers, we have a PDF of The First Anniversary Recipe Book. All you need to do is email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us you want it.
So.. come on over and party with us. New prizes every day, plus every time you enter one of the daily contests you are also entered into the drawing for the Grand Prize. Plus if you tell your friends and blog buddies about the contest, you can get an additional entry. Just sign the Mr. Linky on the Anniversary Contest Page.
Hopefully now I'll be able to come around and visit everyone. I miss y'all!!
