Moving right along, last week I was thrilled to discover I had 90 followers. Yes, 90!!!! Big grin on my face. Had my time finally come for a 100-follower contest? The following day, as I pondered the contest question, I checked my blog and grin was wiped off my face. I was back to 89 followers. Did I jinks myself? Is this a new trend? Who was it, I wondered clicked the notorious un-follow button! I couldn’t tell, because my computer will not load visuals, pictures etc. I was in the dark…which is probably just as well because I might have stalked said lost follower in an effort to discover why they had abandoned me.
Today I am back to 90 followers again and even as I type have acquired my 91st follower. I am now feeling confident enough to introduce a 100-follower contest.
On Monday night I attended a talk given by Barbara Kingsolver in DunLaoghaire, Co. Dublin. I have a signed copy of “The Poisonwood Bible” and “The Lacuna” to give away. One will go to, fingers crossed, follower 100. The other will go to a follower who leaves a comment here and advertises this contest on their blog. Names will be drawn from a hat or maybe a bowl. Haven’t worked out the finer details yet. Contest ends August 4, 2010. It is a short one, due to fear I may become overly attached to these signed copies!!!
I would like to say a big thank you to all my followers. I really do appreciate your wonderful kind and supportive comments. Thank you for sticking with me.
