I wondered what you thought of when you read this title.
Do you remember your first?
Did you think I was talking about your first love?
Or first kiss?
Well, that’s not what I was thinking about this week.
I was thinking about my first blog follower!
Do you remember yours?
I started my blog in Blogger almost 3 years ago. My 3 year anniversary is coming up in March.
I had nooooo idea what a BIG part of my life my blog would become in the next three years.
My first header looked like this….
I made it myself.
Does anyone besides my sister remember it? (Cyndi, do you remember it?!)
I wrote several posts before I finally got my very first follower.
You know, one besides my sister and my mom.
A follower that I had never met and someone who lived far away from me.
Cindy from Applestone Cottage. (Same name as my sister! How cool is that?!)
Over a year ago, I told her that I wanted to do a post about her blog someday as a thank you for being my first follower, and though I am a little late in doing it, I wanted to keep good to my promise.
She will never know how much it meant to me when she clicked that “follow” button on my blog, and her cute little face appeared in my Google Connect box.
Each of you know what I am talking about. Having a follower finally gives you an audience, a purpose, an excitement about blogging!
So thank you, Cindy!
Cindy lives in the most beautiful area of Wisconsin. Her and her husband bought a cute little stone cottage surrounded by apples trees on two acres. Doesn’t it sound amazing?
And look at that beautiful snowscape!
She creates some beautiful tablescapes too, and is always up to something fun.
Wanna do me a favor?
Wanna help me say “thank you” to Cindy for being my first follower?
I would love it if tons of my readers would pop over to Cindy’s blog and just say, “Hi!”
Maybe you could say, “Traci wants to thank you for being her first blog follower!”
Wouldn’t that be awesome?
If she got like over 100 comments on her blog today?!!
Wouldn’t YOU love to get that many comments on your blog?
So can you help me out?
Click HERE to leave a comment on her blog. And THANK YOU too!
Did you notice that my Google Friend Connect box was missing from my sidebar?
Google no longer lets WordPress sites show up in Google Readers.
And I don’t want to lose you!!!
