Happy Fourth Birthday Rose Chintz Cottage!

Hello my sweet friends~ Today is my blog's birthday! Rose Chintz Cottage is four years old!

It is hard to believe that it was four years ago today that I took a deep breath and entered Blogland.

I was so nervous and I wasn't even sure what to share for the first few weeks.  I remember I was in awe when I got my first comment, even more so when I got my first follower!
I couldn't believe someone would be that interested in my little blog that they would actually sign up to be a follower.
Like a blogger friend said the other day, it was like an Academy Award moment.  

Now here I am, almost one thousand followers later, with over seven hundred posts under my belt as well as my own meme, Tea Time Tuesday. And to my surprise, I also have a second blog called Christmas Pudding.
The icing on the cake was when Romantic Homes magazine featured my blog in their July 2012 issue.

Why did you start blogging? I started to blog because I had been a church secretary and I missed writing up the bulletins every week. I had enjoyed it so much that I started to write short stories for the bulletins along with little tidbits and many a compliment I received because they were more personal instead of all business.

To say I have learned a lot from all of you would be an understatement! You are the reason I come here to the land of Blog every day, hoping to chat with a few of you.
I love your visits and wonderful comments. You are just plain lovely folks and it is a pleasure getting to know you! 

I am about to have a Giveway for all my Followers so stay tuned for that and I am also about to introduce to you yet another meme which I am working on. Who would have thought!

So, from my heart to yours, thank you, for making my blogging experience so very rewarding. God bless you all!

Sharing from my heart~ Sandi
