I made it on the list! That Lisa is incredible. I don't know how she does this?! I put OWOH on my calendar with the plan to be one of the very first to participate. Then as it approached, I could not think of anything wonderful to give. So, I procrastinated. Then I started visiting the wonderful blogs on the list and I HAD to participate. I am officially #542. Last year I think it went way over 1,000, so I will be in the middle of the list. That will be just fine. I am truly enjoying my travels around the world and I am amazed by the fabulous giveaways that are being offered. I am going to up the ante and add to my giveaway asap. What fun!
If you are on this journey too, I have a few tips to share with you that may save you some time.
Commenting/Entering: First, write a basic message to post on your comments that include your name, email and blog address, then "copy" it, (control C). It's really hard for the blog author to find this information when you have hundreds of comments. So... when you visit a blog, write something personal and then "paste" your basic message underneath.
If you have a blog...I love hearing about you and where you live. I didn't put this information on mine until I realized that I was enjoying that part of other people's posts.
As you travel, either bookmark the blogs that you really resonate with or "follow" them. It's almost impossible to find them again because there are so many. I have found blogs that I have followed over the past couple of years and truly enjoyed that I originally found on my OWOH journey.
Have fun on your trip!
