For the past few weeks I have been dragging toward three hundred. With all my new Crusader friends, I streaked up to 280, but then it had stopped. Slowly ever so slowly I had 292 friends and then nothing for a week.
By the weekend I had made five more new friends. I was thrilled. Yesterday all was quiet. Last night as I wrote my entry for Hart Johnson's Ides of March blogfest, I had hoped this would be the day.... and it was!
Yesterday afternoon my 300th friend joined my blog family. A special warm welcome to Laura Eno. I hope to see you often so that I may get to know you better.
Now I would also like to welcome my other new friends. This is something I do when I gather five to ten new friends. You are all special to me and I want to personally welcome each of you ...
Michelle Mclean, published author, I am honored, Jenny, Indigo(gorgeous name), Jo, welcome. Laura, Rosie, Tessa? I've known you forever ... I'm so glad you all joined my blog family, Gina, my new Italian friend, and There's Just Life... Thank you all, I can't wait to learn more about you.
SO, since our favorite Tart has brought me to the magic 300 plus, in her honor I would like to host another fun BLOGFEST! YAY! I became close friends with Hart since my first blogfest back in December. I hosted my first HARRY POTTER themed blogfest. I believe it's time for another. I know there are many of us HP freaks out there so I expect lots of you to join in the fun.
I just informed Hart about the blogfest and as soon as I hear back from her, I will post it. Hopefully by tomorrow's post.
I plan to do this before the exciting A-Z challenge that many of us are already participating in... If you haven't heard, it is a daily challenge to post a different letter of the alphabet Mon-Sat during the month of April. Doesn't this sound fantastic!
Many of our friends are hosting: Arlee Bird, Alex J. Cavanaugh, Talli Roland, Jen Daiker, Karen Gowen, Candace Granger, Jeffrey Beesler, and Stephen Kemp. Hop over here to enter.
ONLY ten more are needed to reach their goal of 500! SO GO NOW AND SIGN UP!
