In the Blogging Tradition

One of the most important aspects of blogging has to be my followers who choose to give my blogsite their vote. Without them I’d just be talking to myself in the vast void that is Cyberspace. The comments of such like-minded people are the chocolate chips on my cookie and the marshmallows & cream on my hot chocolate drink and I savour every one.

Now that I am ¾ of the way towards achieving 100 followers
I have been reflecting on the Blogging GIVEAWAY tradition.
I agree that blogging can be incredibly addictive and time consuming
There will be 2 surprizes plus a few award nominations!

The prizes are along the lines of a Writer's Survival Kit:
Goodie bag includes:Things to pamper, stimulate and facilitate your writing muse.

Those who qualify will be a follower who comments on the posts:
Some have commented on every post, since joining,which is FANTASTIC Others comment regularly,since joining, which is FABULOUS
and others comment regularly, though don’t follow, which is also GREAT
and some comment now and then, which is SUPER
Others comment though don't follow which is also LOVELY.

So, when the 100 followers mark has been reached, the names will be selected by random-kittie.southdevon.uk  and announced.
