205 FOLLOWERS! I AM HONORED .... WELCOME FRIENDS! WELCOME CRUSADERS!

Well, it seems like only last week I celebrated my 150th follower.  But amazingly by mid-day yesterday Donna Weaver became my 200th follower.

THANK YOU DONNA! You made my day. Of course, without the rest of you I never would have made it. SO THANK YOU ALL.

We have a long list of new friends today....

Susan, Pixie, Doreen, Lynette, Margo, Nas, Tessa, Jaqueline, Katrina, Megan, Donna, Clara, E,J, Alyssa,
Angela, and L.A. Phew! That's a lot o new friends.... You guys ROCK!

Many of my new followers/friends are fellow CRUSADERS. SO a special welcome to them. I hope I get to know all of you and that we learn more about each other.

How fantastic it will be to read each other's work! A special "HAT'S OFF to our leader RACHAEL HARRIE!

I don't know if many of you know this, but I only starting my blog in late October. Before that I was just testing the waters and following a few blogs.

Now I have friends throughout the world and I can't begin to tell you how honored and happy I am to be a part of the AMAZING community.

Soon I will announce some wonderful giveaway, so keep an eye out for that.

Give yourselves around of applause....



I'd also like to tell you how much fun I had with all of you on Valentine's Day! Many of you had some fun plans, but the majority decided to do something special with the family. Sharing the love with the ones they love most..... You can't argue with that.

My favorite post was from a charming blogging couple from England. Margo and Tony Benson. They had an intimate luncheon and toured the Broomhill Sculpture Gardens. How lovely is that. If you have a moment you should check out their blogs. They are a fascinating couple to get to know. And they are fellow CRUSADERS! WOOT!

  4. I agree about both of them being fascinating! Congrats on so many followers! This crusade is going to be so much fun.

    I wanted to share an experience with you- I know you are working on your friday angel posting- My oldest daughter was my angel last night. She crawled into bed and my little one started babbling, so my oldest, Jas, got out of bed and started comforting her because I was doing homework. I reached a stopping sentence and went to check on them both. My youngest was running a 102 temperature and Jas says- mom can I sleep with her to make her feel better. She had no regards for her own well being because she was worried about her sister. My children are my angels.

  6. Michael, no worries for the "delayed" follow. It's a little crazy with all the new followers. I know I've picked up like 30 in the last week myself. It's going to be a ton of fun getting to know all these new people, but it can be a little tough keeping up.

    205 followers since October? Not bad at all!!

  9. Hi there fellow crusader! Just found your blog and so glad I did. I'm new to blogging (hoping to celebrate 50 followers one of these days :)) and the crusade. Looking forward to reading your blog regularly.

  11. Hi Michael, congrats on the followers. You're such a charmer! I too have only been blogging for a very short time, and I love the warmth that's shared around the blogsphere.

    Thanks for the lovely comments! I'm just learning to say Woot. I hope that sounded ok. It took me ages to learn to say 'dude' without sounding like an idiot, and I'm starting on Woot now. Actually I'm trying to catch up with Margo - she's said it twice already.
