My First Blogiversary!

Hello World, and welcome to K-town today! I can't believe that it is my first Blogiversary today - time flies when you're having fun, and it's been a whole lot of fun indeed!


365 days, that means 165 posts, 1404 lovely comments, over 130000 visits, and 475 followers. When I started this blog one year ago, I never thought that it would be so much fun, and that I'd meet so many lovely people out there in blogland and here in k-town. If it hadn't been for you, I wouldn't be celebrating this Blogiversary today, so to all of you out there:

♥ Danke ♥ Thank You ♥ Merci ♥ Dank je ♥ Grazie ♥ Takk ♥ Dziękuję ♥ Obrigada ♥ спасибо ♥ Hvala ♥ Gracias ♥ Tack ♥ Teşekkür Ederim ♥ Děkuji ♥ ευχαριστώ ♥

Now to the fun part you've been waiting for: The Giveaway! I've already mentioned before that this time you can win this garland with 19 little button-flowers:


Remember my last two Giveaways? In the first one, you had to guess the weight of the giveaway stone, in the second one you had to guess the number of buttons in a Whiskey glass. And guess what - this time I'd like to know:

How long is this flower garland?


I've found out that the length of the garland varies a lot, depending if it's stretched or loose, and I've decided to use the length of the garland when it's lying loose on the floor (that was the easiest way to measure it). If you'd like to enter my giveaway, all you have to do is
  • leave a comment and enter your guess in a common unit of length (i.e. centimeter, meter, inches, foot or similar).
  • Please make sure to make one guess only!
  • Of course you can score extra-points again: If you mention this giveaway on your blog (and tell me about it) you "win" a tolerance of +/- 10cm or 4 inches, i.e. if your guess is 320cm, you're in with any number between 310cm and 330cm (if your guess is 126", you're in with any number between 122" and 130").
  • The one who's closest to the right length (or enters the correct length first) wins.
  • This Giveaway will close one week from now, and I'll announce the winner one day later, on May 26th.
And since this is my Blogiversary, there might be another surprise in store... *gg*

Edit (a few hours later): I've replied to some of your comments now, giving you the bonus cm's and converting the foot and inches to centimeters - this makes it easier for me to compare the results later! :)

Good luck to you all!!!
