Awesomely Luvvie is 4! Let’s Celebrate!
*takes swig of Bailey’s*

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” 🙁 ).
* 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!
