Lurkers Won't You Come Out?

I am almost up to 50 followers....How did that happen?

I still remember my first couple of followers (near and dear friends of mine). I also remember the next few people which I didn't know, that started following me- I thought "You crazy people!"

So in light of my new friends, I want to celebrate. Since it would be a logistics nightmare to have you all over for a party (Polly in London, Liss in Australia, Julie in Denmark, even Julie in San Fran... etc etc.... not to leave anyone out, but, you get where I am going here)

I have decided to keep up with the
"give away"
tradition.


So, I know there are more of you out there dancing through my blog than I have followers. This is your chance. (So, lurkers, won't you come out?) I will be giving away something fabulous for my 50th follower.

But, all of my faithful bloggy friends should not be left out either. So, I will throw all of your names in a hat and give away something to one of you too. I can't list what it is yet cuz it will kind of matter if a male or female is the winner... I have a few ideas swimming up in the vast expanse of my brain :)

Edit: So, I just walked away and thought of this brilliant idea.
Why stop at 50?
Anyone who signs up past 50 will be put into a drawing pool all their own. Plus for those faithful followers if you leave me a message on this post I will put you into another drawing.
That's right -
you will be entered into two separate drawings for two very different, yet fabulous, prizes! Because you guys have been there all along. Do I sound like an info-mercial or what?!

Bookmarked your site a few days back to come and read and picked today :) I too have been trying to find a way to get some faithful readers to delurk. So hope this works well :)

I see I am 49 in your list of followers, but hopefully that paved the way for someone to be the 50th today!!

Its fun to find fellow Minnesota bloggers, especially from Bemidji... was rooting for the hockey team to win it all at the Frozen Four!

Good luck on fifty!

Well...I can't unfollow and then follow again...don't want to! I enjoy your blog too much to miss every day! Glad I'm not a lurker (that is a weird name).

I love it! #50... fun.

Ok, everyone else, keep signing up to follow (if you want a doze of this everyday - yikes!) because remember there is a separate drawing for those that sign up after #50 too....

So much love and giveaways today.

Too funny. Lurkdom. I wonder about the lurkers too. For a long time I thought I didn't have any readers. Oh boy was I surprised!

Hey, I bet you'd have fun signing up on a Christmas card list...I did it and I got to send cards to strangers who jut needed to be thought of.

I really like your blog, very nice.

Oh... uh... about the missing diaper bag over on the sidebar there... (oh dear, hate to be the one to say it but...) are you sure you didn't lose a kid at Walmart? Happened to me once when I had a passel of kids. Major panic!!!(grin)

Pattern and Perspective said...

I found you on Julie's blog (julochka). I became a follower of your blog because you live only 1.5hours southeast from me! I've never been on another blog with a person so close to me:) (TRF-the most boring place ever)

Boutique By Bonnie said...

I came over to comment! I don't get to comment as much as I'd like on the blogs I follow, but then on certain days I play catch up! Congrats on the followers. I recently passed 100 and feel so amazed and grateful!
