4th birthdayAwesomely Luvvie is FOUR YEARS OLD!!!

*takes swig of Bailey’s*
*Sheneneh hip twurk*

Four years ago, I abandoned my Xanga blog to move to Blogspot. On August 8, 2006, I wrote the first post on “Luvvie’s Queendom” (LAME NAME!). That blog became “Luvvie’s Random Rants” and then evolved to the Chateau de Ratchetness that is now “Awesomely Luvvie.” 1 blogging platform move (Blogger to WordPress), 1 URL change, 4 years, 370 posts and thousands of comments later, here we are. Although I barely blogged the first 2 years. in fact, only 25 out of those 370 posts were before August 2008. So I was clearly playing bald-headed games those first 2 years!

Now that Awesomely Luvvie is now in Pre-Kindergarten, it has opinions and chooses its own outfits. It has a favorite Dr. Seuss book (“Cat in the Hat”) that it likes to read at night. And a favorite starburst color (the pink one). These four years have been the most rewarding of my life, and I have my blog to thank for a good amount of it.

And I must thank my readers too. Everyone who has read my writing, commented, retweeted it, forwarded it, emailed me with kind words. EVERYONE! You really do make blogging a blast and a half. To thank you folks, I’m having giveaways all week! 4 giveaways (1 for each year of my blog). I’m about to get my LuvPrah on. So this is the week to make sure you’ve subscribed. My giveaways are usually pretty time-sensitive so folks miss out on stuff. This is my alert though. EVERY day, is a different giveaway.

With that being said, the first one is one I’ve been holding on to for a while. I’m giving y’all 4 days to get this done though. And it is…

THE *WALL SLIDE* SPOTLIGHT!!!

*crowd goes wild*
*crowd stops and says “Wait WHAT?”

Well, as you all know. I’m overdramatic. And this is obvious in my love of *WALL SLIDING*. What is the *wall slide*? I can show you better than I can tell you. And I did.

A *wall slide* is what you do when things get frustrating, overwhelming or just too stressful for you. So naturally, I *WALL SLIDE* at everything, from the loss of an earring to my favorite TV show being cancelled (Bye “Scrubs” :-( ).

So, I’d like my readers to create a video of THEIR version of the *wall slide*. You’ve seen me slide down the wall. Now it’s your turn! The rules are simple, and here they are:Wall Slide Tshirt

* Create a video of you doing the *WALL SLIDE*. Either the front or the back version.

* The video needs to mention AwesomelyLuvvie.com (either verbally or in a caption).

* It needs to be uploaded somewhere online that is publicly accessible (like YouTube or Vimeo. For those who don’t have an account with either, you can upload the video on TinyPic.com I believe, without an account).

* It needs to be uploaded by 11:59pm on Thursday, August 26, 2010.

* After you upload it, email me the link (Luvvieblog at gmail dot com) of where the video is at and include your name and email address.

The winner of this contest wins a *WALL SLIDE* t-shirt from my Spreadshirt Shop in their size as well as public acclaim for their foolishness. I can create a guy’s *wall slide* tee too, so fellas, don’t feel left out. You can ALSO bust out your best slide.

So get to it, folks! Who’s entering? I hope more than 1 person.

P.S. Also, wishing AFROBELLA.com a HAPPY 4th birthday!!! That dope eCrib turned 4 on August 14th. LEO BLOGS STAND UP!

    Congrats, honeybun! I’m so proud of you! **throws glitter**

  2. CEE says:

    I’m so glad I found you (your blog, that is). It’s one of the ONLY ones that I read regularly these days. Happy 4 years. While I profess to being a natural fool, I’m not one to vidjo tape myself. But anyhow, I look forward to seeing the winner. I’m sure that will be comedy as well. Congrats again.

  3. Dee Dee says:

    Luvvs! Congratulations! Without you and AweLuv, I might not ever laugh again! Here’s to you both! *dougies*

  4. Brittany says:

    So freakin’ proud of you. Happy 4 years!!! Now lemme run off to Bella and tell her the same thing!

  5. Cheekie says:

    Happy Birfday, AweLuv!! *throws confetti shaped like little lions* Leo!!

    Ahem.

    Anyway, when you first threw the wall slide competition idea out there, I knew I had to participate. So, I’m gonna throw out my procrastination-hat and do this before the deadline…because I must. It is law. DAYUM, I wish I knew how to leyomi drop in real life. Like, I can do it all up and through these internets, but in the non-Matrix world? Chile, my knees would cry. And I’d probably not be able to walk again afterwards.

  6. Nikia says:

  7. Capricorn says:

    • Luvvie says:

      Well, it’s better late than never. *whispers* Black folks just can’t be on time. I mean HEY GIRL!!! lol But yes, you can indeed buy a shirt. That would make me cheese! Thanks!!!

    Happy Birthday, Aweluv!

  10. Jenni says:

    Thanks for all the laughs Luvvie!

  11. Happy burffsday! Enjoy a box of Aretha Franklin’s wigs, red velvet fried chicken, Kat Stacks’ tweets, John Legend’s rogue hairline, a lacefront, a private Bo. Franklin meet-n-greet and a day of ratchetness. Don’t worry, I put it on the VSB’s credit card

  12. Congrats on your fourth year! As a blogger I know it’s a challenge to keep at this thing. With my current blog (I have 3) it’s only 2 years old, but the first year was sporadic at best.

    I think I discovered you when you were trying to teach Stuart McDonald how to “walk it out” LOL!

    Please don’t teach him how to ‘dougie’ I told him that dance is a little too *ahem* sweet. At any rate, I check this blog when I need some foolishness in my life.

    Love the wall slide! Congrats!

    • Luvvie says:

      Thanks David! And don’t worry. I don’t even know how to dougie so I can’t teach Stu. LOL. Glad my blog could bring foolery into your lifespace though.

  13. Alovelydai says:

    Congrats Luvvie! Me thinks we’re gonna need the “I’ve wall slid & I can’t get up” tee shirt if I enter the giveaway!

    *greases palms*

    I’ve been waiting on this moment my whole life. Practicing, demonstrating… Mayne, I eat, sleep, and BREEVE wallslide!

    Hey Luvvbug!

    Happy Birfday!

    Four years?! You’s a legend. If there was a legends ball for bloggers, you’d be there.

    We speak your name.

    Can’t wait to see who wins the Wallslide award and hopefully you snag the WEBLOG joint so I can see you Bro Franklin all over the place. LOL

    I am so tardy to your birthday party. I didn’t even have time to call up Sister O’Dell’s frenemy, Sister Wright to do her prayer and liturgical dance! And she cain’t come today cuz she’s getting her new wig styled.
    So here’s some *Diva Dust* and… a mini spray dance ($2.76)
    Sorry for the lateness and bootleggyness..
    Happy BlogBirthday!!
