20SB is turning 5 years old!

by Renee on June 18, 2012


This month we’re celebrating 20SB’s 5th BIRTHDAY!
For those of you who are recent members, welcome! We’re happy to have you!  And for those of you who have been with us since the early days, can you believe how quickly the last five years have gone?

We have 20+ really fun giveaways planned in celebration, but our main event involves YOU.

Beginning today, write a post to submit to our 5th Birthday Blog Carnival, sponsored by GlassesUSA.com.  The theme:
Write a letter to yourself five years ago. What have you accomplished? What do you regret? What are you most proud of? How has your life and/or your blog evolved in the last five years? What do you wish you could tell yourself five years ago?

Make sure you include the following statement at the end of your post to be eligible to win:
This post is submitted as a part of the 20SB 5th Birthday Blog Carnival, sponsored by GlassesUSA.com. Submit your own post here.

When you’re done, leave a link in the comments section of this post.  Five winners will be selected by a Random.org drawing and will receive a free pair of eyeglasses.  All posts must be submitted by June 25, 11:59pm EST.  Don’t worry, we’ll remind you on Facebook and Twitter!

In summary, submit a post from June 18 to June 25, enter to win free glasses, celebrate 20SB’s 5th birthday!

**UPDATE – you can comment with your post until June 26 and still have a chance to win!**

We can’t wait to celebrate with you.

 Psst, snag a badge!

Happy Birthday 20SB! I’m not one of your most active bloggers yet… but I do appreciate the community you’ve build! Great job and keep doing what you do best!
As for the letter you asked us to write to our five-year-younger selves…
Love, Leanne

Birthdays are always fun- on my 5th Birthday I think I burnt my eyelashes off on my candles.  Dear 5 Year Old Me- Don’t do that!
