One year of blogging

Today marks the one-year anniversary for Bringing Along OCD.
In my first post, I wrote the following:

“I have never talked a lot to others about my OCD, at least not specifically. With this blog, I hope to finally be truthful about the effects of OCD on me and on those around me.
I also want to use this blog to consider the questions I ask myself about OCD. I hope by writing and especially by receiving comments from you, I will gain some understanding.”

Those are still my goals, to be truthful about OCD and to gain understanding by listening to others and making connections with them. I am trying to do the same with depression and anxiety.
  I appreciate you so much, dear readers. I appreciate that you read my posts and make comments and come back for more.
To show a little of my appreciation, I am offering a $10 Amazon gift card to one reader chosen at random.
To be in the drawing, you just have to leave a comment by Friday night (Nov. 16) at 10 p.m. EST.
If you win the drawing, I’ll email you the code for the gift card. And I’ll announce the winner in a post on Saturday (Nov. 17).
This is not a requirement for the drawing, but if you haven’t already joined the blog through Google Friend Connect (at the top of the page on the right, beside my photo), I’d appreciate it if you did.
I love blogging. I love interacting with you and learning along the way. I love knowing that I’m not alone in having OCD, depression and anxiety. And remember: you’re not alone either.

  What is your favorite thing about blogging and/or reading blogs?

  11. Don't include me in your giveaway. I just wanted to congratulate you on your anniversary. Isn't blogging great? And to meet so many people who either have the same issues as you have or at least have concern for you ...I think it's awesome.
