One World One Heart is a worldwide event for bloggers only. It gives all those who blog a chance to meet and mingle and form connections with those they may not have otherwise met from all over the world. In the past 4 years this event has grown to over 1,000 participants with lasting friendships (and even one love connection) formed along the way. Think of it as a GIGANTIC open house allowing you to travel without ever leaving your home - going from blog to blog (in various countries) seeing the wonder each one has created and meeting all the fabulous people behind those blogs. As a bonus each blogger participant will offer up a "door prize or prizes" - just for dropping by, saying hello and seeing their world. It's really that easy. By the way, I took this paragraph directly from the post about this event. It describes it too well for me to mess with it.
I found this event while randomly blog hopping and it sounds absolutely beautiful. If you follow the link above (or click on the logo in my sidebar) you will be directed to the main post which explains the event - should you decide you want to participate. The event runs from January 30 through February 17, 2011. You may sign up until February 12th.
Now, a little bit about myself (as that is part of the event - talking about ones self LOL). I am Sheery, a very proud stay-at-home mommy to two amazing children who (along with their Daddy - my husband) mean the world to me, of course. I am an avid reader. I am never, ever without a book - or two. I am also a writer. Honestly, if I don't read and write on a daily basis - I am a bit of a grouch. It is my dream to be published and I am working on that goal. I'm a bit of a procrastinator on the submission and querying process but I am getting better about that.
I used to scrapbook regularly but that was put on hold for a while while my children were really small and into every thing. I'd like to get back to scrapbooking, though. I love photography and have many pictures just waiting for the 'perfect' layout. I'd also love to learn to crochet but I'm not sure where I'd fit that in just now. Maybe someday soon.
I have a real life book club with one of my closest friends. We keep trying to get more people involved with us - but it has just been the two of us for almost a year. That's all right though, we have so much fun with it. Although, I have to admit that while we do talk about the books (she's an avid reader/blogger just like me) we go off on other tangents. Always.
One last thing about me - I LOVE to travel. This is another thing that I haven't done too very much of in the past few years but that's all right. I make sure I travel through the books I read and all over the internet. The international quality of this event is part of why it appeals to me so much. I hope I have the chance to meet many of the people participating in this event.
Now, for the 'door prize'. I will send out one blank journal for the purpose of writing or drawing or whatever the winner may want to use it for. I will also be certain to choose one that I think suits the personality of the winner. All you have to do is leave a comment to this post and I will use a random number generator to choose a winner on February 17th.
Thank you for stopping by my blog and have a wonderful time the rest of the month. If I haven't been to your blog already - I will be there soom.
Anyhow, thanks to everyone who has already stopped by. I will be visitng you, as well. I've already been to a lot of amazing blogs and met some really neat people. Thanks again to Lisa for this amazing event!
