Happy Blogiversary to me. Well. Almost. **GIVEAWAY**November 16, 2010 at 11:16 AM | Posted in Cupcake Hero, cupcakes, giveaway | 148 Comments
Hello. Anyone out there? I need your attention. I have something to say.
I let you down. I dropped the ball. I passed the buck. I left you high and dry. And didn’t leave a forwarding address.
I wish I could say that I won the lottery. Took an amazing cruise around the world. Went on a 3 month shopping spree. Interned for Oprah Winfrey and now I’m joining the ranks of Dr. Phil, Dr. Oz, Rachael Ray… b/c she’s producing my new tv talk show. Sadly it’s really much more simple than that. Life got busy and I got blog burned out.
But I’m still baking cupcakes for clients. Here’s proof.
Cute right? Fall must be the time for baby showers. I wore out my onesie cutter.
I want to thank everyone that kept Cupcake Hero going while I was MIA. I hope all the hosts had a good time while it lasted. I apologize to all the people that emailed me with their concerns and complaints about how Cupcake Hero as been run as of lately. Unfortunately because I feel like I’ve lost control, I am putting Cupcake Hero on hold indefinitely until I have more time to organize it up to its full potential. Please respect my wishes and DO NOT use the Cupcake Hero brand on your blog even unofficially. It is not yours to use. I promise I’m not trying to be be mean. It is not mine to give permission to use. That can only come from the original creator, Laurie of Slush. At this time we both agree that Cupcake Hero is on hiatus while I figure out if I want to continue, have sponsorship (or not), revamp rules, etc. Thank you for understanding.
If you are getting the shakes at the thought of no Cupcake Hero might I recommend Jamieanne of The Sweetest Kitchen‘s Mystery Cupcake Challenge. Heck. I might even give it a go myself.
Eesh. This post is turning all Debbie Downer.
bribe make it up to you.
Exactly a month from today is my 3 year blogiversary. No really? It is. Just look at my sidebar’s nifty blogiversary reminder. Wow. That means I’ve eaten A LOT of cupcakes in the last 35 months. *poking myself ala Pillsbury Doughboy* I almost forgot until my husband reminded me that he hasn’t had to go to the post office for a giveaway lately. Hardy har har husband. I’m gonna make him regret that.
To celebrate my blogiversary I’m having a **GIVEAWAY**! Nothing PW big. Just some cupcake stuff that I love, have, use, need, want. Readers, Christmas come early this year. *fist pump*
