A post challenge that will have a winner!

That’s right…just for posting you will be in the drawing.
And this is for my 4 year blog anniversary.
EACH AND EVERYONE OF YOU WHO HAS A BLOG WILL BE ABLE TO BE IN ON THIS…
You DO NOT need to post about a craft, a recipe, travels, family…nothing like that…just something simple that we all will be able to post about.

Here’s the challenge and rules:
1. Sometime within the month of September I would like you all to do a post about ‘HOW YOU CAME UP WITH THE NAME OF YOUR BLOG”
2. When did you start blogging
3. Leave a comment here on my blog that you posted
3. Send me an e-mail with the link to that post and you will be entered  kmprimitives@gmail.com
4. Deadline for posting is September 28th (my 49th wedding anniversary) thought that was a good deadline date!

Prize will be shown at a later date.
See how easy that is!
I started my blog on August 31st of 2008 – just 2 days away from being 4 years.
I came up with ‘MY COLONIAL HOME’….not because of MY HOME but I had serious thoughts of posting about the Colonial era…how the families lived, their homes, their jobs outside the home.  Showing you tools of the home and work. Furnishings of the era.  How children lived during these times.  Even foods and recipes.

Very simple blog to do but for some reason I lost track and started posting all about me and my home after seeing what all of you out there were doing. It was a ‘fever’ that caught on to many of us.
Hope you all take the challenge.
And don’t forget I have my JAR TOPPERS available again
AND they’re going fast.

  23. Great idea Karen. Original! I won't participate because I'm actually considering a new name. I'm not sure yet. I noticed that a lot of people in Belgium have a hard time remembering and pronouncing the name of my blog. I'm thinking about something else that's easier, but still in English. I have no clue :-).

  71. Hi Karen,

    I just found your amazing blog, I came way of Amy over at Bumblebee Lane... I love Primitive a little harder to find out here in California... I lived in Pa and NJ for many years and fell in love with it then.. When I moved back home to Ca I really missed it.. Finding this blogging world brings back so many special memories for me... My children were little I lived in an old farm house a wonderful husband I had a truly blessed life.. My husband was killed in an accident and so I decided to move back home where I had a support system...
    I have been very blessed here also, I remarried a wonderful man. We had been best buddies in high school:) He teases me that I have Pa and NJ in my blood the way I decorate my front porch for any holiday!!!!
    Sorry for going on and on.... I have a blog sweetvintagehomeandgarden.blogspot.com I am more on the cottage side but I am adding primitive now!!!
    Can't wait to see your next posting!!!
