Happy New Year & 2-Year Blogiversary

Happy New Year! It’s amazing that 2011 is here already… wasn’t it just the beginning of 2010 the other day? It seems that time really does fly!

The middle of this month marks the 2-year anniversary of my blog, Frugal Friends in Northern Virginia. It was two years ago I started up my WordPress blog wanting to share local Northern VA and DC Metropolitan area deals and connect with other local bargain hunters and couponers.

I’ve been happily surprised  to see my readership grow and even have some press/recognition for my little blog. I remember the first time I realized that the Washington Post blog linked to one of my posts: my jaw hit the floor and I thought to myself that it must have been a “slow day” in regards to interesting reads in the blog-o-sphere :-)

Closer to the end of this month I’m planning to make a big announcement in regards to this blog. Ah…can you feel the suspense building? 😉

Thank you for tagging along with me as I blog about frugal finds and deals near our nation’s Capital; I wish you all the best in the New Year!

Happy Blogiversary! Here’s to many more years :) I actually wanted to let you know you inspired me to start my own blog (novakidsnow.com) – I just launched it 1/1!

Thanks Shannon! And congrats on your new blog NovaKidsNow.com. I’ll definitely be checking back frequently for fun events I can do with my kids in the DC area!
