Blog Anniversary, and a Giveaway

Today marks the 6th anniversary of the start of this blog.

The first few years I didn't post very consistently, but over the past year (thanks to being on the Review Crew for The Old Schoolhouse), I have become more frequent in posting, and have been gaining more and more followers.

So, for you, my readers, I want to offer a drawing for a copy of one of the Draw Write Now books!

To enter this giveaway:

  1. Leave a comment, describing one of your local animal habitats.

  2. Follow my blog via Google Friend Connect.

  3. Follow my blog on Facebook.

  4. Blog about this contest on your blog.

  5. Post this contest on your Facebook.

  6. Tweet about it on Twitter.

Be sure to leave your email address, so I have a way to contact you if you are the lucky winner. One of my kids will draw a name/number from the basket shortly after 6:00, pm, Central Time, Friday, August 19, 2011.

Thanks! And have fun! Pin It Now!


  1. Gopher Turtles are everywhere in Florida! They are protected so if you are caught messing with one of them or one of their habitats there are serious fines and possible jail time! You can see their burrows everywhere. The house we used to live in had two turtles living in a burrow in our back yard. The hole traveled under two houses and came out the other side. It is common for snakes to co-habitate with Gopher Turtles so besides it being against the law to tamper with them, it is very unsafe to fiddle around a Gopher Turtle hole or you might get bitten!

  2. We used to have fun watching the Gopher Tortoises when we lived in Florida! We miss seeing them now.

  3. We have so many animal habitats near us. Woods behind our house, a pond in front of our house, a creek beside our house . . . it's so fun to see all the wildlife (most of the time) around us.

  4. They may not be my favorite but the most popular around here are the Sandhill Cranes.

  5. Congratulations, Wendy! You've been a faithful blogger and inspire many! All the best for future posts!

  6. HMM, A local habitat, huh? In the country it is very woodsy, and filled with snakes! YIKES!

  7. Local habitat... well, we live close to the Salato Wildlife Center. We can see ducks, geese, bison, elk, deer, turkeys, black bears, an eagle, wildcats, fish, turtles, snakes, and bees. There are paths and trails to walk on including a nature path and the dragonfly marsh.

  8. I love Sandhill Cranes! I love to listen to them. I miss hearing them like we did when we lived near my folks....

  9. Sounds like a lovely setting! We don't have the pond or creek (well, there is a drainage ditch bordering our property; very unclean!), but we have a little bit of woods. And we have bird feeders up. Love watching the hummingbirds!! :-)

  10. Sounds lovely! I love to see eagles! We don't see them often down this way. Dragonflies! We have so many buzzing around lately! They are almost as big as the hummingbirds!! LOL


I love hearing from you! Please leave a comment. Thanks!
