One Hundred Happy Traveling Suitcase Posts and Contest

Traveling Suitcase BadgeDrum roll please! I just hit a milestone-- One hundred happy traveling suitcase blog posts. I'm really excited by that. I started this blog just over a year ago, on February 5, 2009; and so have just gone past that blog anniversary.

I've been given several blog awards from you my faithful readers. THANK YOU!!

I appreciate each and everyone of you who follow me, who subscribe, who visit, and comment. For those on Entrecard who drop, again Thank you!

I couldn't have the enjoyment of blogging without all of you who travel with me. The Suitcase is busy and always out and about. I look forward to another full year of traveling with you all.

  16. Your badge is right below the Shoutbox, Sandy. I have yet to post some more comments at your previous articles though.

    About the Project Heavenly Home, you can read the details here:

    My friend Windy did the Slideshow thingy. It's our little way of showing how much we appreciate the donors for their generosity and benevolence.

  18. I need to figure out to make this sticky so people can continue to find this post and comments throughout the month. But, in the meantime, I only have 1 complete entry so far. Lainy has posted she wishes to join here, she's posted my badge with a link here to the blog, and she's posted a 2nd comment in one of my recent 15 postings.

    Brenda and Shelly have 2 of the 3 requirements, ad June has 1 so far. I'll keep checking.

  19. Hey Sandy!

    To make this post STICKY for Blogger, you have to change the date to a much later date at the Post Edit. Let's say date it 12/31/2010 and it will stay on top of the Post fold.

    I hope you got some comments that I have submitted at your previous articles.

  20. If you need any more help, I am just a mouse click away.

  24. Hello Sandy,

    I read your Comments at Lainy's Musings "Project: Heavenly Home".

    On behalf of Lainy, I replied to your Comments at:

    http://www.lainyonline.com/heavenly-home/project-heavenly-home

    I understand your questions because this Project predates your having read it at "Project: Heavenly Home".

    I hope my answers clarifies.

    Cheers!
