anniversaries

bangsarebetterthanbotox.com’s Facebook page is four today!

The blog itself is much older and was once called Yogi Girl. I started it in 2004, while pregnant with Pooka. I deleted it rashly after someone left a scary comment. A few days later, I tried to recall it and someone had already taken the URL. All those words lost.

Back then I had a lot more readers and I sometimes mourn that relationship. Strange, huh? It was different than other social media; it had to be grown organically. Your computer didn’t willingly hand over your contact list and start making matches for you. When I shut it down for those few days, I missed them. They were international and living lives very different than my own. I was learning far more from them than they were from me. Every comment was treasured.

Here we are, though, at the end of 2015, and social media reigns supreme. We catch up with friends, get our news, and show off our moments with a touch a screen. It’s fantastic!

To celebrate, I’m giving away Joico shampoo and conditioner. Contact me and I’ll add you to the list of potential winners.

Good luck!
