100 Strong...

...and growing. This is totally sung to the Flintstone Vitamin commercials except it's not 10 million (see what I did there). I'm referring of course to the fact that I now have over a hundred followers.

When I first started this blog I had like 7 followers and they kind of had to follow me because they were my e-friends and it was poor form not too. I really never thought I'd make it to this point, partly because when I first started out I was a God awful blogger. If you want the proof you can go back and reread, but I wouldn't advise it. Just take my word on it...it was pretty bad.

It was all puppies and rainbows. I wasn't honest because I didn't know how other people would react. I've clearly gotten over that. Once Isabella was born things got good. I got honest. My blog got better. I found blog support sites and have "met" some amazing women who share my views.

I guess the insecure part of me also appreciates the validation. 100+ people give a rats patutie what I have to say and that's really nice. So I promised myself that once I had 100 followers I would do something cool. Like a giveaway or an ask me anything (although I'm not sure there's anything else you would want to know). So I'll think about it for a hot minute and come back at you.

Thanks to all my followers and commenters. It really makes my day when I get a new follower or a new comment. Here's to the next hundred.

Congratulations! 100 + is very impressive.

I am venturing down the same path as you! I don't know what I am doing with this blog thing, but definitely looking to connect with more women like me! As always, love reading your blog. It gets many a LOL from this mama!

Question: how did you put the "grab my button" icon and html on your page?

Take care!

Congrats on your hundred followers! I get excited when I get a new comment or follower too...but I do take pride in the fact that my followers really want to follow and read my blog. I hesitate doing the Friday Follow for that reason. Thanks for reading my blog today!
