Happy 1st Blogiversary + Giveaway


Today Ponder ‘N’ Wonder turns One!

It feels like yesterday when I opened this tiny slice on the internet with absolutely zero clue on blogging. I definitely read tons of articles titled ‘Blogging for Dummies‘ and still continue to read them. The funny thing is that it took me the most time (almost a fortnight) to create a name that said ME. When I think back on those several proposed names, I now know why they didn’t click (Spoiler Alert: They sounded so lame). During a 1 20 am pre-Monday emergency laundry session to my basement was when Ponder ‘N’ Wonder was born (for real!). And that’s when I knew, she was mine!

During the past one year, I have learnt a ton from some fantastic bloggers and readers (aka YOU!), built bonds with some beautiful humans, gotten to know what makes people special and no matter how mature we all seem, we all are simple strong humans trying to find our ways and means in this lovely journey of life. Doing things that I love (writing) has most certainly freed up some space in my heart to love all that I do!

Now, let’s get down to why you really hopped over here. It’s Giveaway Time! First anniversaries are special and I believe in celebrating all the little joys in life. My baby blog wouldn’t exist without my readers. On this special occasion, I have not one, but TWO gifts of love for you.

Nuun Hydration Kit

Nuun is a hydration product packed with electrolytes and clean ingredients. Their four major products Nuun Active, Nuun Energy, Plus for Nuun and Nuun Vitamins, cater to the needs of everyone alike. Let’s not forget to mention that these products come in a range of yummy flavors. My favorite ones are Lemony Lime, Grape, Ginger Lemonade and Blueberry Pomegranate. You can check out their website and also follow them on Instagram and Twitter for more info. Word on the block is that they have a new product coming out soon. Stay tuned!

And you thought I had enough Nuun products?

Momentum Jewelry

Momentum Jewelry creates athletic jewelry, that are stylish as well as inspirational. You guessed right! The inspiration behind this line of jewelry was during one of those challenging workout sessions, when Amy (the founder) was looking around for something to distract her mind and motivate her. That’s how their several products ranging from motivate wraps, foot notes, sparklets, necklaces and many more were born. You can check them out on their website, and also follow them on Instagram and Twitter to find out more.

Had this cute motivate wrap on my wrist every single day during my first half-marathon training and race day.

    Congrats on your Blogiversary!! How exciting 😀

    My best blog advice I’ve taken to heart over the years is to keep blogging for YOU… trying new things and taking specific advice from others on what a blog should be is a-okay, as long as it’s something that still feels like YOU and what you want to do with your blog.

    Happy blogiversary! I’m not a blogger but one thing I really appreciate as a blog reader is when the blogger takes the time to respond to the comments other people leave. I feel like it builds a relationship and makes me want to read more of their blog posts. I’ve seen some bloggers with 35k followers who just don’t take the time. I don’t even bother to comment on their stuff anymore because what’s the point if it falls on deaf ears.

      Amen to that. I agree! I appreciate people who respond back or at least acknowledge my comments. Those are blogs that makes me want to keep going back to read. Thanks for stopping by and good luck on the giveaway! 🙂

    I am not a blogger so can’t give you advice in that realm! But, from a reader’s perspective, I always enjoy posts with real-life pictures. Congrats on a year and keep up the great work.
