Abducted by Blog Hop 2.11.2011


Earlier this week I had a scare! You see every day I get on my blog and I look to see how many followers I have. I LOVE all my followers and I get excited each time I gain another. These last couple of weeks I have been stuck at 69 followers and each day I get online and cross my fingers that that will be the day I'll cross over to the big 7-0!!! And earlier this week I got on and not only had I not gained a follower, but I lost one! For a whole day I was back at 68! I went around the house cursing myself, wondering what I had done wrong to cause one of my followers to jump ship! I mean I understand I haven't been posting much lately, but that is no reason to leave me all together. I've just been really busy lately and I haven't meant to neglect the blogging world. I promise.

Alas, it was only a glitch, for the next day I got online and I was back at 69! I can't tell you the relief I felt! I love all of you guys and sure one day I hope to be at 100 followers...or pressure... But no matter how many followers I have I will always love you guys that have been around the longest! Never for a second think that I don't appreciate you. And please for the love of all that is good and decent in this world...don't you ever leave me again!

So today is friday and it is time for some blog hopping! Now I am at work so I can't add the images for the blog hop, but I will let you know that it is hosted by CRAZYFORBOOKS and if you click on CRAZYFORBOOKS it will take you to the blog hop.

The question for this week is to share about a blog post you did from this week, the only problem is that I haven't posted this week. I know, I know, I really am sorry! See here is the problem, I have been reading a lot lately and that has taken up a lot of my time. I mean it is no excuse, I know, but it really has kept me busy. I do have a whole blog post ready to go in my head about finishing Odd Thomas, which was fabulous!!! And I have another book I'm almost done with and another book that I am going to start this weekend and hopefully be done with by early next week.

I hope everyone hopping around on the blog hop is having fun looking at all the other blogs! And I hope everyone has a great weekend! Tomorrow for sure I will post about Odd get is coming!

Don't forget if you do decide to follow me, let me know! I always want to return the favor and I will send you a very special thank you message for helping reach 70!!!

I lost a follower this week too. But I just tell myself if my blog isn't what they are looking for, they will never read my posts and certainly not comment on them. I really try to make it "no big deal."

I totally understand the losing of a follower. It makes me very sad! Good luck getting to 70 followers today! I am a follower! Stop by and see me if you havent already -

Hey there! I'm your newest follower. Thx for stopping by on the Hop :) Love the blog.

P.S. I think you're at 70 now!

Looks like you're at 70 followers now! That's great.

After a while, you get less bothered about it. I realized last week I had over 200 followers and didn't even notice when I hit that magic mark. But it's not nice to lose followers.

So I'm wishing you a lot of new follwers.

Thank you guys so much for all of your comments and thank you all for following and helping me get to 70! Have a great weekend!

I am a new follower from the hop. I find followers fluctuate by one or two each week-- who knows why? Sometimes one may offend someone but well, you can't please everyone. Don't take it personally. There are always going to be enough readers. Sometimes people clean their blogroll. I am hosting a challenge for that this March. When I started out a friend who is a truly professional blogger, told me the most important thing was consistency. SO I have something up every day. If I am going on a holiday I schedule posts.

I try to think that any followers I've lost have either died or been forced into witness protection and that the first thing they will do after being relocated to Wisconsin or North Dakota, settling into their new identity of Mary Doe and their job at the cheese/button factory, they will re-follow.
