Reminders and Reflections

If you have won a giveaway from this blog and have not been either received your prize or been contacted from the company please let me know so I can see what the problem is. Also if you didn't receive your 10% discount code from the Kikou review let me know via e-mail because some of your e-mails weren't linked in with your blogger account.

And in regards to the Helping the Little Guy Project, if you have requested to be part of the project either in a comment, e-mail, or twitter I have you already written you up. Posts are scheduled at this point until October. I will notify you via e-mail when your date is the week of your scheduled posting. So it would be great if you could follow the featured blogger or comment on them at least this way we could build a great sense of community. There are 20-30 featured bloggers so that means everyone would gain some great followers and maybe some great friends.

I've also noticed something that makes me sad. In the past month I've lost some followers, I've also gained a bunch which I'm so grateful for, but it makes me really upset to lose followers both on here and on twitter. It may just be my insecurities getting the better of me, but it makes me wonder what I'm doing wrong? It's probably just a difference in tastes, but I rarely de-follow anyone so I'm not sure what might cause someone to stop following. If you hate me just send me an e-mail and tell me why so I can stop worrying if maybe I shouldn't talk about bowel movements anymore.

I'm still here, but my reading did go down a bit during vacation...so perhaps you have a lot of people on vacay or something?

No! Don't stop talking about poop! Lol...I get a little sad when I lose followers too but I think it's because they don't know what they are getting into. I don't unfollow, I just don't read because even though I may not care to read them I don't want them to feel sad.

I recently un-followed a bunch of people, not you, of course, or I wouldn't be commenting.

In my case it's simply that I couldn't keep up. I started following a bunch of people as I was trying to get into the blogging thing. I soon realized that there was no way I could read everything coming in and still function in my real life so I had to back off. There were a lot of people I followed that it turned out I didn't really have much in common with, so their stuff didn't really draw me in. And I don't like having to search through my reader to find the ones I like amidst the ones I don't.

I'm sure anyone you lost just didn't fit here. And isn't that a big part of the blogging world, finding others we fit with?

You're doing fine the way you are.

I knew that I shouldn't be worried about it- I got my shirt today. It was promptly stolen by Jeffrey who likes the big heart on it :)
