I'm Having a Give Away....

...when I reach 300 followers. I am nearly at 300 followers and I thought once I reach 300, I'll give away a special prize to one lucky follower.

I see lots of blogs out there who have more than 1,000 followers and I wonder if I'll ever have that many followers? I also see other blogs who have far fewer followers than myself and I know how hard it can be to get noticed out there in blog land. It's taken me about 5 years of blogging to get close to 300 followers, while others have acquired thousands of followers in far less time. Who knows why some blogs get more attention than others? I'm just so grateful to have so many fabulous followers (yes each and every one of you), so I am not complaining, just making an observation.

Keep a look out for when I announce the give away...it may be soon or it may take a few weeks, or months to hit the big 300 followers...you just never know.

  2. Hi Daryl - I've been following your blog in my reader, but just became an "official" follower! I know what you mean - I've been blogging for a couple of years and just got to over 100 followers this year!

  3. Well Daryl, like Denise, I've followed your blog in my reader but never officially joined. So today I did. I see you're going to be featured on November 13 and it's your birthday. Mine is the 15th and I don't care how old I get, I still enjoy my birthday. So early Happy Birthday to you!

  4. You'll hit 300 in a blink. I have found that there are a lot of followers that follow in different readers or choose to read by linking from another follower's blog. You have gained a lot of readers quickly!

  5. Hi! I would not worry about the numbers. I see blogs with 3000 followers and they don´t get much more comments than you do. Give aways are usually a good way to gain followers, specially when you ask people to announce it in their blogs in order to be allowed to participate. But Tutorials and free patterns are the other thing that make people come back to the blog and follow it!
    I am sure you will not have any problem reaching the number! Good luck!

  8. I'd just be happy to get comments from all of the blogs that I comment on. I never ask for followers, but a comment every now and then would be nice. :)

  9. Daryl, I have come to the conclusion that the most important are the followers who are always behind us. Those who visit us often and leave us lovely comments. I've seen some blogs that have more than 1000 followers, but when they make a post there are only 1 or 2 comments, and that makes me sad. We all worked so hard to create and share projects, just a comment to say thanks would be enough. My blog is small, but I'm happy, I said to myself that I do not mind the quantity but the quality, you understand what I mean. Your blog is quality and I love it, I appreciate each one of your post and especially I appreciate the inspiration you give us. I'm sure you'll reach 300 followers without problem, I'll be following your adventure here. Thank you for your lovely blog, Marisa
