Look at this! How did this happen???
You are no doubt reading along enjoying today’s post, “20 Questions With Author Barbara Tarn” – as well you should be –
and LOOK what’s also happening today
(more or less).
What, you don’t see?
Step closer to the glass, Clarice.
We are almost at 1,000 followers? HOW DID THAT HAPPEN?
You remember a few weeks ago I was talking about this and saying we might have a party at 1000 and we’d probably get there in March (I hoped; maybe by the end of March)? It’s freaking February second! And I honestly questioned whether we’d ever reach 1000 followers.
And, to be honest, I’m still pretty sure WordPress has made some huge error in calculating all this. The real number is probably around a hundred, but
We will probably reach 1000 today! Or this week!
Can you believe it?
I can’t. I mean, I can, but I can’t. It’s crazy.
I don’t know why this has me so excited. Except it does.
My little blog that just over a year ago had NO followers except a spambot and a confused but sympathetic friend, now has almost 1000.
I’m probably jinxing myself for posting this now, but after I saw 994 I was pretty sure I’d miss 1000 when it happened and as a result you’d all miss the party!
Well, party on, people!
I think if a lot of you guys re-blog this to your followers, we’ll hit 1000 today. That’s kind of how this stuff works. Otherwise it’ll happen in a few days and we’ll all miss it. That’s kinda like missing the ball drop on New Year’s and watching it on the news the next day, or not seeing you car’s odometer roll over to some big round number. Not nearly as exciting. Hell, I’d gone dark, remember? I wasn’t even paying attention.
Anyway, we have a little bit of time to plan a party. If you want to come over to the house, I’ll be home most of the day compiling The Navigators into one file. (I should probably let you guys see a few sample chapters of The Navigators, too. Hmm… and the cover. It has a cool cover. And a really fun story. Remind me about that later and I’ll do it.)
I can run out and get some champagne but otherwise we have plenty of wine. Do you wanna bring stuff? We only have either two or four beers, but we have LOTS of chips for some reason. And a little leftover hummus. It’s red pepper style. Do you like hummus? The red pepper is good. We just opened it Sunday, so I’m pretty sure it’s still okay to eat. Oh, and cheese. We have a lot of cheese. because we have a lot of wine. And because we like cheese. But bring whatever you like if we don’t have it. I think there are frozen meatballs in the fridge, too.
Anyway, what I’m saying is it’s a party!
And it’s be cause YOU amazing people have read and commented and reblogged and followed and subscribed. (And because of me a little, too.) But now I get to stand here looking smart as a result of all YOUR hard work getting word out there about this blog. (And mine, a little, too.)
Let’s face it, you guys make me look good. So you deserve the cheese and hummus. And a lot more
(in advance, I guess, but still.)
You’re the best bunch of folks I’ve gotten to know on the internet. I love you guys.
No, really, you’re the best.
You really are. I promised myself I wasn’t gonna cry.
Thank you for being there. Remember, your blog can do this, too. And a lot more.
You guys rock.
