Woo-hoo! I reached 100 Followers sometime this weekend. Sorry, can't give you the exact time and date, since I have no clue. I don't really drop into the blogsphere much on the weekends, but, somehow, when I wasn't looking, I reached 100 Followers.
So . . . welcome to the new followers, and thanks to the old ones for sticking around.
Now, I know how I hit the 100 mark. Nicola Morgan over at Help! I Need A Publisher! had a birthday party over at her blog since she reached the 1 year mark on Sunday. As part of the celebration, she had all her followers leave a comment with a brief description and a link to their blogs in order to spread the writing wealth in the blogsphere. So, congrats to Nicola, and thanks for hosting such a fabulous party.
You might want to hop over here and check out the comments. You never know, you might find a blog or 300 to follow. On second thought, Lady Glamis and Elana, don't check out that blog. You two follow way too many blogs as it is, and giving you the potential of hundreds of more blogs might send you both over the edge. I'm just saying . . .
I was also going to do a great post today, but got sidetracked by Kate Morton's The Forgotten Garden. I can't seem to put the book down. Seriously. I can't remember the last time I just totally lost myself in a book, page after page, reluctantly putting the book down only when absolutely necessary. The book is a mystery, many mysteries, and the author effortlessly does some amazing things. I'd tell you what they were, but finding them out as you read is half the fun of this book. My only hope is that if I ever attempt something so grand, I can do it 1/4 as well as she has done. So, if you're looking for a good book to read, go get this one. It's an amazing read. I'm 60% through the book, so, depending on my schedule this week, I should have it done by this coming weekend. Woo-hoo.
I will post at least two more posts this week! I have some ideas forming, inspiration from The Forgotten Garden.
