200 Posts & A Great Giveaway!

Veggie Mom's celebrating an Anniversary of sorts today. This is my~count 'em!~200th Post! To Commemorate and All That Jazz, I'm hosting a Giveaway, and sharing some Bloggy Bling, too!

First off, to
The Great New Pop'rs New Years Giveaway. The rules are simple:
  • We're picking Five Grand Prize Winners. Each winner scores a complete set of Pop'rs...All Eight Flavors! ...and T-Shirts for the family!
  • All you have to do for one entry is leave a comment on my blog. The more comments, the more entries! Comment on every post this week! Comment multiple times on one post! Comment about anything...the weather, your family, my family, Pop'rs. The sky's the limit!
  • For an Extra 10 Entries, post about this contest on your blog, and send me the link.
  • The contest runs until 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, January 11, 2009.
  • Uncle Lynn will pick our Five Grand Prize Winners by Random Drawing, and I'll make The Big Announcement right here on Monday, January 12!

Next up, I'd like to award some Bloggy Bling to commemorate my 200th Post. Sure didn't know what I was headed for when I started this Blogging Business, way back in June. Do you realize that I've posted Every. Single. Day since June 16, 2008? That's some Mighty Prodigious Posting! Hey, maybe I should be getting the bling, instead of you? There must be an award for this kind of enjoyable insanity out there, somewhere!

Anyway, I'd like to continue a tradition I started Way Back in November, with my 150th Post. For that milestone, I created the My Blog is Pop-tastic Award. It's sort of modeled after the great Pop Artists of the '50s and '60s. They were Innovators. They were Cutting Edge. And I pretty much feel that way about many of you, too!

As with all Bloggy Bling, the My Blog is Pop-tastic Award comes with a couple of Rules and Regs:

  • When you receive The Award, please post it on your blog, linking back to the person who gave it to you.
  • In addition, please link to This Post and This Post, which explains the origins of The Award.
  • Please visit Veggie Mom's November Post, which explains the origins of The Award, and Sign Mr. Linky, so we'll be able to keep a record of all whose Blogs are Pop-tastic! Feel free to leave a comment, too!!
  • Pass The Award along to SIX Bloggy Friends, whose creativity merits inclusion in this circle. Link to their blogs in your Awards Post, and notify them that they've received The Award!

That's it, kids. Except for the Awarding of The Bling, I guess. I know all of my Bloggy Friends deserve this, but I'm forced to name just six. I hereby present the My Blog Is Pop-tastic award to the Following Friends, who've made Eat Your Veggies! such a fun and fulfilling journey:

  1. Annie. She comments every day, and is almost always the first one out there!
  2. Vicki. She's generous, she's creative, and she's also up for another Pretty Impressive Blog Award. For more info on that, Click Here.
  3. Rachael. She's another prolific~and quite creative~blogger, and the Mom of three boys. She deserves the award on that basis, alone!
  4. Mannequin. She's been with me almost since the beginning. And her Frankie and Cupid are two of my Best Blogging Buddies!
  5. Anonymom. She has so much to say! And seriously believes in Sharing the Comment Love!
  6. Gombojav. She got Pop'rs for Christmas...What a present! To read more about that, Click Here!

So, there you have it. 200 Posts, A Great Giveaway, and some Bloggy Bling to celebrate! So, what are ya waiting for? Let's Get Poppin'!

thanks!!!! you are so sweet !!! i love reading your posts... and anything that helps kids eat veggies can only be a GOOD THING!!! congrats on the 200th post!!! keep up the great blogging!

DiPaola Momma said...

I heart Annie too. She always leaves me great comment love. I have four kiddies myself. The two youngest could SO use these! they eat NOTHING! It drives me nuts!! I always thought that picky eaters were mostly the fault of parents who didn't insist that they eat properly. NOPE! My two oldest eat great, though #1 is a 15 year old boy and is getting bad about veggies. So Uncle Lynn.. PICK US PEASE! PURDY PEASE

Oh... Yes Veggie Mom, I remember you as being one of my very first bloggy pals!
However, I always suspected that it was *really* Frankie and Cupid that you liked best. In that light, I hereby accept this wonderful award on their behalf. Thanks Veggie Mom and POP'rs!
Congratulations to everyone; that's quite a distinguished group I've been thrown in with.
