This post marks a milestone for me--it is my 100th post. Little did I know when I started this blog last summer, how much joy it would bring me to share my life and my discoveries with you. I started out hoping that family and close friends would have a better idea of all the things we were experiencing traveling back and forth each month from Houston to London. Then to my delight, many more of you started telling me how much you were enjoying the stories, and with your encouragement to continue on, I've kept writing to the point that I've now reached Post 100. Many thanks to all of you--old friends and new blogging friends around the world for your interest and good wishes.
To celebrate this occasion, I've decided to give away a little touchstone of London. Pictured in the basket below is a tea towel featuring some of the major sites of London that I would love to send to one of my readers.
I hope you'll enjoy finding all the sites that you've seen or read about in the city we all love. Here's just a quarter of the map! Recognize some landmarks?
And below is a close-up of my "neck of the woods" between the area of Chelsea Town Hall and the Chelsea Physic Garden. See the little lady carrying her groceries--that's me trudging home from the grocers with my daily load!
So...what do you have to do to be eligible to win? So, so simple--just leave a comment on my blog saying what you would love to see if you come to London. The contest will be open until midnight on February 14, after which I'll pick a winner at random and ship it off to you. Can't wait to see what your favorite places would be!
For all my friends who have given me verbal comments or Facebook comments through the months because you weren't sure how to go about leaving comments on a blog, here's a quick tutorial. You will find at the bottom of the post something like "5 Comments" or the words "Post a Comment." Click on the word Comments. You will next see a box where you can then write your comment. Now, you must choose an identity. If you have a Google/Blogger account, you click on that option. If you have another blog service, you can click on the Open ID option. The next option would be to click on name/ URL site (for those who have their own website.) No website? Then just type in your name only. The final option is Anonymous, but for this contest's purpose, I would need you to identify yourself. You're almost done now--if you'd like to Preview it to see what it looks like, you may by clicking on that button, but when you are ready to submit the comment, you click Publish. Hope that helps.
