Post # 700!

It all began here at Cheekyness back on October 1, 2004. Here is my first-ever paragraph, reprinted for your reading enjoyment:
Wow, this is exciting... I finally have my very own weblog. All I need now is broadband internet, a PDA, a cell phone (perhaps even one with pictures), a laptop, and one of those memory-stick things that everyone is using instead of floppy disks now, and I'll be right up-to-date with the rest of the country. :) 
I'm happy to report that I have all those things now, except for the PDA. But darned if the rest of the country didn't go and change the "up-to-date" standards on me in the meantime. I guess I'll carry on as best as I can. Again.

I've been trying to remember what first inspired me to blog back in 2004. At the time, I had two jobs and was taking 18 hours of classes at South Plains College; small wonder that my initial foray into blogging only lasted for five posts. And while I likewise don't remember what brought me back to it 15 months later, I am so very glad that I returned; it is through blogging that I've run across a lot of great blogs. Of course, there is also the benefit of having a place to empty my brain, and also store my thoughts for perusal later, if I were ever to be so mad as to do such a thing.

Okay, I know you are all really here to find out the winner of the Cheeky Giveaway. And the winner is:

In honour of her good taste in
reading and commenting on
Cheekyness, Megan will receive a
Texas-shaped cookie cutter, an
Austin magnet, an Austin keychain,
and two Texas postcards with some
sort of cheeky message.
Megan Bickel! We'll all know more about Megan in a few days, after she is interviewed & guest posted (and please do go put the pressure on for her to do both). For right now, I can tell you she is a picture book writer and she lives in my home state of Indiana. :) Megan, DM me on Twitter or on Friend Connect with your address so I can send you your prize!

The runner-up, as promised, is Penciler of Songs. Unfortunately, our friendly neighbourhood songstress does not blog, which is a bummer, because she leads an exciting life. Both interviews and Megan's guest blog, should she choose to accept, are coming soon!

Thanks to everyone for taking part in the first Cheeky Giveaway. It's been fun! Watch for another Giveway when I reach 1000 posts. :)

Yippee, Su! I'm so excited I won! I tried to DM you on twitter, but you aren't following me yet. Can you e-mail me? mkbickel [at] hotmail [dot] com. And I'd love to guest post! How fun is that?!

Su said...

Sure thing!

Thanks, Petty! I hope the next 700 doesn't take as long. :)
