The Big 50

Monday, 7 June 2010

No, not my age - I'm not quite that old yet - I'm referring to my tally of blog followers, which has just hit the magical 50. Many, many thanks to each and every one of you - it's very much appreciated. When you're a struggling writer, each new person who takes the time to start following you is a great encouragament.

So, 50. That's only half-way to 100 isn't it?


  1. Congrats Simon! 100 can't be too far away!

  2. Thanks Karen. I'm still some way behind you though!

  3. Yay! Congratulations. I helped! There will be many more. Keep it up buddy.

  4. We follow because it's fun, so congrats on passing the fifty mark!

    (Some of my followers don't now follow me but I know how hard it is to get Blogger to believe that!)

  5. Maxie,

    You did indeed and I'm very grateful.


    Well, one tries! I'm glad you're finding it fun.

  6. Well done, Simon. I'm currently on 49! Perhaps I can steal one of yours, lol.

  7. Yay!! Congratulations!!! Here's to your next 50 and then some! :-)

    Take care

  8. Donna,

    I'm sure you'll reach 50 any day now!

    Old Kitty,

    Thanks! I have some way to go to match you though!

  9. I'll make it 51. Now you're on your way to 100. Thanks for the tech tip on Casey's blog.

    I lost a follower last week. It's amazing how depressing that can be. I was almost to 150 and now the number is shrinking. Sigh. Don't we get caught up in silly status symbols on the Interwebz?

  10. Anne,

    And thanks for the follow! Yes, it is silly, but strangely addictive ...

  11. And thanks for following back. I only update once a week, usually Mondays, so I'm a low-maintenance follow.


I'd love to know what you think.
