I had so much fun reading the entries for my 100th Post Giveaway. It really shows how much people get to know about you just from your blog!

Should we beware? Is Big Brother really watching us that closely? Does he even need to watch us; or do we just give ourselves away through our blog? But hey! I'm no threat to Big Brother! I've nothing to hide ....... except those extra 5 lb I've put on this summer!

It was really, really difficult to choose a winner. There were so many great answers. I have to give honorable notice to Nezzy cowpattysurprise.blogspot.com/ and Mysteryhistorymom perfectisboring.blogspot.com/ for their suggestions. Send me your mailing info via my email address for a notice of appreciation.

But the winner of my giveaway is:

Darla from morefamilyandflowers-darla.blogspot.com/

And your fantastic prize package includes the following:

1. A heart embelished tea towel to show my appreciation for your thoughtful answer.

2. A new notebook/journal which says "Too much of a good thing is wonderful!"

3. And a great Nova Scotia cookbook called The Strawberry Connection. I've had this same cookbook for over 10 years and I really love it. There are wonderful recipes, great sketches and bits of trivia relating to Nova Scotia and to strawberries. As well, you can substitute other berries for the strawberries in lots of the recipes.


A huge thank you to everyone who entered with their suggestions. It's such an honor to have people take the time to not only read my self-indulgent little blog but to also offer their comments. I appreciate all of my bloggie friends.

I'll be seeing you -- and reading you!

Congratus to Darla! And as to your question, I think we reveal much more about ourselves than we even realize. But that's the beauty of blogging, especially for those of us who remain pretty much anonymous like I do. I'm very careful as to who I give my bloggy address to as far as those I know face-to-face. I really think it over, as to whether I want them to know as much as I let out. I've had only one disaster early on, and I learned a lot from that, let me tell you. I'm basically a very private person tho I don't think most of my readers can believe it, haha! But my blog barely scratches the surface. If I had more time, I'd tell a thing or two about a thing or two, indeed.
