Bonus Blog: Follower Thanks

WordPress has started (probably just in the last two days!) a really cool thing. Its keep track of new followers and records days on which I break a previous record for new followers. I must admit I hadn’t kept as close an eye on it as I used to, but when I looked today I realised that the dashboard was telling me that I had 51 followers.Wordpress 50 followers notification51?!?!

You mean that there are 51 people out there who are nutty enough, not only to visit this blog, but to choose to receive my ramblings in their inbox?!

I’m honestly touched and flushed. I never expected to receive such a response to my words and it gives me a warm glow each time I see that little number inch upwards.

So… let me take the time to say,

thank you!!!

to each and every one of you who has decided to follow me in recent months. I treasure all of you and the comments you leave for me and the time it undoubtedly takes to read my lengthy mind dumps.

Please, all of you, have a hug this big:My hugs to you!and a massive plate of virtual cookies to show my love and thanks. (^_^)

About Ileandra Young

I'm a thirty-*mumbles* year old (purple loving, cheese worshipping) author of fantasy, juggling a pair of beautiful twin boys with my burning desire to make up stories and write them all down. When I get the chance, I play games, listen to music, and in days long past I even ran a radio show. Though I occasionally write non-fiction, my heart lives in fantasy and my debut novel, Silk Over Razor Blades is now available through Amazon along with part two of the trilogy, Walking The Razor's Edge.

    Now you have 52! 🙂 Keep up the great work!


  2. I can’t call you face anymore. You are way more bump than face, and I bet that’s just as soft. So you will be known as bump until you have the babies and then will be restored to facehood. X


  3. Yeah, those little milestones are great, aren’t they?

    I just got my 100th ‘Like’ on a post from a few weeks ago, my Toronto Comicon wrapup.

    Hi Illy

    I am not sure how WordPress are counting your numbers, but I am yet another enthralled fan who has stumbled across your blog in the past 10 days. I haven’t signed up for the inbox feed, but I have saved you in my favourites along with a few others just in case you will bring a smile to my face. I find myself checking in regularly.

    I am lucky enough to live in Leicester, so consider me part of your local fanbase.

    X Mary

    You’re welcome, hahaha. 😛 I can only hope one day I get as many followers on my own.
