I can hardly believe that one year ago today I started this blog. My intent was to have a place to document my adventures living overseas, but still have a place to share about nutrition because I am still a dietitian even if I can't practice in the clinical setting. I have found over the year that I have been busy learning about Azorean culture, so my blog has leaned heavily towards local food and culture. Over the next year I hope you will continue to read about our adventures on the island, and I hope to post more information regarding nutrition, because that remains my passion.
Here is my post from last year on this day: The Start of a New Adventure.
As a token of my appreciation for helping me reach this milestone, I am having a giveaway. No brand names you may be familiar with, but that is the fun. I am offering a package of goodies from the Azores and Portugal. US residents or US military (APO) addresses only please, or Portugal.
There are a few ways to enter:
1) Please leave a comment telling me what you enjoy most about my blog or your favorite post I have made over the past year.
2) Become a follower or add me to you blog roll, and leave a comment letting me know.
3) Tweet about this giveaway and my blog. Make sure you use "@MJintheAzores has been blogging for a whole year. She is giving away Azorean goods..." with a link to this post. Then leave me a comment letting me know.
4) Link back to this giveaway and leave me a comment letting me know.
For each entry, please leave a separate post so I know how many entries you have. I am sure one lucky winner will be very happy to receive some foreign goodies. Good luck! Giveaway will end on August 13, 2010 at midnight EST.
Oh, and thanks again. If you like my blog, spread the word. I hope to increase my base of regular readers over the next year.
