Blogiversary, Birthday and a Giveaway!

Well, I missed the anniversary of Wonderful Wonderblog. On July 18 this blog turned eight years old! Wow! Whoda thunkit? It's kind of hard to believe I've been doing this for that long. I don't post as much as I used to, so I really appreciate everyone that has hung around.

Also, tomorrow (July 29th) is my birthday! I'll be 48 years old! Yikes! In my mind I'm still a little kid playing with toys and reading comic books. But, my body let's me know I'm not that young anymore. :)

So, to celebrate the blogiversary and my birthday, I thought I'd give one loyal fan of Wonderful Wonderblog some gifts. I'm not going to say what they are, because I'm not sure yet. I'll sort through some of my junk treasures and put together a prize package. It'll probably contain some toys, comics, trading cards, etc. All you have to do to enter is leave a comment below. Make sure your email address is in your profile or leave it in your comment. I'll randomly pick a winner in one week on August 4th.

***Giveaway is now closed. Thanks to everyone who entered***

Thanks for checking out Wonderful Wonderblog these past eight years! Now, start leaving those comments!

Oh, one last thing. If anyone would like to get me a belated birthday present, here's some toys that I owned in my youth, but lost track of over the years. LOL

Erick, As I am a whole year older than you (to the day, as you know), you should listen to your elder and celebrate both your (our) birthday and the anniversary of your blog by treating yourself to one of thosse grat toys. My brother had the Goodyear model and the giant Navarone mountain set. I have the shrunken head set. Nothing beats old toys.

Happy Birthday and Blogiversary, Erick. I'm right behind you in age at 47 and halfway behind you on blogging at 4 years. I missed my blogiversary on July 10th. I'll have to remember for my 5-year next year. Keep on blogging and I'll keep on reading.

I hope to still be blogging by Year Eight [i just passed my one year a couple months ago], and I definitely want to still be into toys and comics when I hit 48. Congrats on the anniversary and very happy early birthday wishes!

[also, goddamn, i had that Navarone play-set and absolutely loved it.]

That Marx Mountain of Navarone is on my list too! I am just as desperate to get my childhood toys back. I will be turning 42 this November. I think I have most beat in age here.

I poured all of my money into making Monster Cafe Saltillo and now whatever comes in I have to get my childhood back!

Yup! I had Navarone too!
Eventually it became a battleground between Micronauts, Fisher-price figures, Star-Wars figures, and other assorted toys.
Rag-tag armies, I guess!
Congrats, by the way.

Tony said...

Happy Blogiversary! Hope you have many more.

I remember having that Goodyear Blimp. Every so often I'll find a few pieces of the paper you make the signs with. I had the Shrunken Head kit as well. My mother got into a fender-bender when she was searching stores for it!

Anyway, congrats again on the annivesary!
