I wanted to address both of these topics a couple of days ago, but I’ve been both sick and busy. For those of you who read this blog regularly, the busy part will come as no surprise, and since I was outside working on the ambulance during the worst of Snowageddon or Snowpocalypse, the sick part should be expected as well. Anyway, on to the fun stuff.
This past Sunday I got my one hundredth follower. As of right now (Wednesday morning) I’m at one hundred four. Don’t ask me how that happened. I’m still amazed that anyone would want to read my little ramblings. When I started this blog four months ago and I stared holes into my single follower, me, I wondered what the magic formula was to generate the kind of readership I saw elsewhere, what potion or spell I could use to conjure a triple-digit following. I still don’t know. Maybe it’s because I don’t know, or at least because I haven’t worried about it. This blog is a much for me as for anyone else, and the fact that even one person would want share in my personal musings can counteract even a thousand impersonal form rejections. Thank you all for taking this ride with me. It means a lot.
Now onto the Crusade. Rachael Harrie at Rachael Writes is hosting her Second Annual Platform Building Crusade, which is in full swing now until April 30th. The idea is to have a list of like-minded blogs that we can link to, make connections, and build our platforms. It’s a great idea, really. Click on the link above for what to do (not much, really) and then sign up. Really, why wouldn’t you?
