I don’t know of a blogger that does not like having followers. Readers. Friends.
I know I like having followers. There is something special about knowing that a fellow blogger or friend likes you enough to put their little tiny picture on your sidebar and get updates of your every word on their blogger dashboard. It makes me feel all warm and fuzzy to think about it.
There is one follower on my sidebar that I feel particularly warm a fuzzy about (Although I love you all). This follower has been with me from the beginning. Okay really from about a week into my blog. I would like to think that she started following me because of my wit, charm and good looks but I am pretty sure it had more to do with our common love of NPR and Mexican Chicken Stew. Either way she was my very first follower and I will never forget the excitement I felt when I signed in and noticed on my dashboard that I had 1 follower! Since that faithful day when she stumbled upon my blog she has returned frequently always leaving comments.
Who is this wonderful blogging angel lady? Why, it’s Ali from Home of the Lazy dog, of course! I am sure that most of you are already regular visitors to Ali’s place but just in case your not if you pop over there you’ll find beautiful poetry, recipes, pictures, and posts on random stuff that makes you think or laugh out loud. She’s great and she holds a very special place in my little blogger heart.
Thanks for giving blog love to a brand new clueless blogger, Ali.
See guys you never know what the little things you do will mean so someone else. Now go visit Ali and check out her great pic of her son “Big Pup.”
