Blog Appreciation

Why do you blog? Is it for fun? For sharing information? For finding friends? To have something to do? Why? Do you love it? Why?

I guess to the blogging world, I am a new blogger. I started this blog 2011, but didn't really get into the swing of things until May. I am fast approaching 10,000 pageviews and guess what???

I now have 200 followers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Starting on Monday, I'll be hosting my own party and Blog Festival! It's going to be in honor of my BEAUTIFUL FOLLOWERS! Yes, that's right! It's in honor of you!! There's going to be prizes and fun:) Oh, how I wish this could be more than a cyber party, but alas! We will have a virtual celebration!

I hope you all except my invitations, which will be going out Monday!

It's going to be fun.
It's going to be happy.
It's going to be fabulous.

and I hope you will join!

Yes. I will be visiting everyone who follows Ink in the Book and I will have a little something to give you.

  2. Par-tay! How exciting! Umm... I don't know if there is a link to my blog (and it annoys me when people don't have it because I can't follow back). How would I go about checking that out?

  4. Wow! That's a lot of blogs to read! I'll be sure to post something interesting for you to read. Then again, I try to do that on a regular basis, with varying degrees of success. It's mostly a fun little writing outlet for me when I have more to say than will fit in a tweet, but less than will fit in a novel! :D

    It's also a motivational tool, since I blog my word count, page count, etc. It keeps me working so I'm not publicly shamed by my readers for slacking off.

  5. Congratulations!!!
    And you can visit two hundred in a day. I did it last Wednesday. And I bet you read faster than I do as well.
    I began blogging to build an author platform.
    I now blog to support my online friends.
    Oh, and to amuse!

  9. Congratulations on 200 followers! I wish Wordpress allowed the Google Friends Connect thing in the sidebar, so I'd know how many real followers I have. They lump in my Twitter followers and FB friends for some reason, so my number of followers appears a lot higher than it really is.

  10. Hmmmm. Why do I blog? I've never been able to keep a journal going for more than three days, but I love writing down my thoughts. I have more incentive to keep going if I know other people besides me will be reading them. Yes, I love blogging. It's relaxing for me.

    Congrats on the 200 followers! That's a big deal. :)

    The virtual celebration...actually sounds like more fun to me than an "in-person" one. The idea of socializing isn't fun for me. Virtual is much more fun. lol

    God bless!

  12. That is amazing that you have so many followers. I've been blogging since Dec. 2010 and only have just over 100 followers, so you are awesome! In answer to your question on my blog about the WIP widget, there are several out there. I can't seem to find where I got mine, but here is a link to a blog with the HTML code available to copy:
    http://stackingpennies.wordpress.com/2009/03/17/how-to-make-progress-bars-for-your-blog/
    If you want the HTML code I used, shoot me an email at shell0flower (at) gmail.com and that's a zero between shell and flower.
