The big 5-0!! How do you feel about your number of Followers?

Hello to my growing list of followers!!! I now have 50! Woo Hoo!!!!!

I have to say, I never ever thought I'd have 50 followers. I remember those first few weeks, months of blogging. It was so new to me. I had read other blogs before...occasionally wrote a blog on Myspace. I designed a free website at Freewebs.com and kept a blog there, but they were few and far between. Then I discovered Blogspot and the HUGE world of bloggers!! I made a commitment to do this blog thing and maybe it would help me. It would be really cool to meet new people, writers, share, commiserate...maybe make some connections. To quote HSM, we're all in this together, right?

So anyway, I started blogging, and of course my first few followers were friends I already had in real life, then a few of my friends that I met online through communities. I browsed and found a few blogs I liked and became a follower. Then I got my first non-friend follower...someone I didn't already know. How cool!!! Someone out in blogland liked what I had to say and wanted to read more!! As the days and weeks passed...I got more.....I remember feeling so good when that spot was completely filled with faces....poeple like me...they really really like me!

Now I'm up to 50 and I am so grateful!! I admit I am not the most interesting blogger. I read posts by others that are far wittier and give great advice. I'm so new...I have no advice to give yet!! I don't post as much as I'd like...because quite frankly...I have no clue what to blog about most days.

So a huge thanks to my first 50!! Thank you for following me! I truly apreciate it!!


  1. I'm all new to blogging so I'm not sure how to raise my numbers or anything like that. I don't even really know how to "add" stuff or make my page more "me." I'm so NOT computer savvy.

    I just started blogging to write. To maybe write something that would resonate with another individual. I didn't really care if only my friends read it or more people.

    Now that I see other blogs that have cool pics and designs-it has me more interested.

  2. I get so excited every time I have a new follower. I'm up to 28!!

    YAY 50!

  3. I'm happy to be in the group. Congratulations!
