{Giveaway} $1200 Blogger Swag Bag / Celebrating 4 Years & 1,000 Posts!

It seems like only yesterday I decided to jump on the blog bandwagon, but in fact it was four years ago today that I started Hi Sugarplum! I didn't know exactly what I'd talk about, but I just knew I had a lot to say, and I needed an outlet to express all the thoughts and ideas swirling in my chaotic brain. (Mr. Sugarplum can only take in so much!)

I remember being petrified the first time I hit 'Publish,' and here I am today, pushing that button for the 1,000th time! (Pretty cool coincidence, right?!) I still get nervous, depending on the subject matter of the post. Because even though I do the projects and writing because I truly enjoy it, I also hope you guys will find inspiration and entertainment in them. Putting yourself out there, to the anonymous internet world, can be scary and vulnerable, but also so rewarding.

I have made friends, gone places, and been given opportunities I never thought possible...all because of this blog, and you! So I decided to give back some of that awesome!!!

Hi Sugarplum | Swag Bag Giveaway

I attended a blogger style conference a few weeks ago, and the swag bag was beyond amazing. I couldn't believe the stuff brands were gifting us, and was overwhelmed with gratitude for the cool experience. But I also kept thinking that it never would have been possible if it weren't for you guys. You read and comment and share, and that leads to more opportunities, so I thought it was high-time I gifted some of that back....and one of you lucky-ducks will win my entire swag bag!

Let's take a closer look at all 25 items you'll get!

But instead you'll just have to accept my genuine gratitude for your four years of friendship, support, opinions, constructive criticism, ideas and laughs. And believe it or not, I've got ideas for 1,000 more posts. Good luck, lovebugs!

You crack me up in every post and I look forward to each one.
