100followers + an award

Saturday, March 27, 2010

Before anything else, I just want to say how genuinely happy and excited I am right now! This afternoon, I logged on to see that I officially have 100 followers!
I know.. I know.. the follower count is just a number, but it truly is more than that for me. I have met a lot of amazing bloggers and book lovers just by doing this. Most have inspired me, sometimes without even meaning to, in so many different ways! Another reason: I think all writers would agree; the best thing about writing is the act itself. However, having your stuff read by others? Pretty priceless if I may say so myself. For me personally, it really means a lot! So... thank you to anyone who has stopped by, read, followed, reviewed, and commented with me!

As for the award..

  1. Thank you so much, I am incredibly flattered! :)

  2. Congratulations! I don't follow blogs since I use my Google Reader and Following would just confuse me more, BUT if I did follow blogs, I would totally follow yours. Does that make any sense??

    I lived in P.I. for a year as an exchange student. One of the best times of my life :) It's a beautiful country filled with kind, generous, happy people!

  3. @Cate: You're welcome! You & your blog deserve it!

    @Susan: Yes, you definitely make sense, and I get what you mean with following blogs on Google Reader. But thank you for that thought, that's always what counts anyway :)
    And how exciting that you lived there, where exactly? Is it in Manila or a province? I was raised there for 15 years, and then moved in California.
    Filipinos are indeed well-known for their kindness and generosity. It always amazes me how people are able to be, despite poverty and all the odds.

  4. Congratulations on having so many loyal readers, and on the award. You have most definitely earned both, Jillian!

  5. THANKS!!!! Congrats on your milestone!

  6. @ds: Thank you so much! I don't know if you remember, but you were actually one of the first five followers! So thank you :)

    @Mary: You're welcome and thank you! I love your blog, and the layout, gosh, so cute!
