Thanks a MILLION! A Healthy Giveaway Celebration



I alluded some time back that we had a big milestone coming around the virtual halls of Test Kitchen Tuesday, and that time is certainly upon us.image

Yesterday, this blog had its one millionth page viewer!  Most of these page views came in 2012, which is really saying something! This not only flabbergasts me, it makes me excited and energized to continue to share my crazy thoughts with you guys.

When I started this blog in late 2010, I had no idea the twists and turns my life would take in the following two years, and, I certainly had no idea the direction the blog would take.

In the beginning, I simply wanted to share my passion for healthy eating, and, I decided it would be better to separate that content from my existing “life” blog, which mostly chronicles home remodeling and sports stuff that we have going on. As a side note, my life blog used to be hosted on Windows Live Spaces, and, when that went away, I was introduced to WordPress. I loved the platform and that is initially what made me think I could actually run two blogs at once.

Little did I know that breaking my blender would ultimately lead me down the path of becoming a bit of a blending maven, thanks to picking up a Ninja Professional Blender. I do eat other things than come out of a blender, for what it’s worth, but it seems that my niche is firmly set in the “blending space.” I can wax poetic about any number of items around these parts, but the numbers don’t lie – people want to read about blending. I’m happy about that because it gives me direction about what you guys want to read, but also, having a specialty is kind of cool in its own right.

Now, with that little lead up over with, I want to share with you my plans for celebrating this milestone. When we hit 500,000 page views, I gave away a Ninja Pulse. I have come to realize that the vast majority of folks that read this blog with any regularity already have a Ninja Blender of some sort, so giving one away isn’t maybe the best way to go. So, I am taking another route entirely, and giving away some great, nutritious items you can blend up in your blender. These are some of my favorite smoothie add-ins, so I know you’ll get good results.

This giveaway is not sponsored or supported by any company. It’s just me, saying to you, thanks a million for all your support, encouragement, comments, and recipe requests over the last two years.
