Tuffy says……

“Follow me, or else.”

And believe me, you don’t want to mess with the Tufster.
(Around here, we have to call him ‘Sir Hod.’)

I’ve always secretly admired those blogs who have “followers” with regular readers featured in a little box on the side of their posts. So I asked my amazing Web guy, Mike Dowden, if he could rig my blog up with one of those nifty “Follow Me” boxes, too. And as always, he came through!

I’d sure like to count my lucky stars to see how many followers will sign up to follow my blog. (So, if I ever have a sleepless night, I can count my blog followers instead of sheep……ZZZZZZzzzzzzz…....)

To make it even more fun, how about a little contest? When the number reaches 100 on my “Follow Me” blog counting box, I’ll put everyone’s name in a drawing for a little giveaway. And we’ll let Sir Hod pick a winner. Well, with a little help from someone with opposable thumbs.

So please sign up and become one of my blog buddies. Tuffy is a follower. (Of course, I do hold an added incentive for him: T – U – N – A.) After all, you don’t want to have to answer to himself, now would you?


 PS — I know, it looks a little weird that Mike Dowden and I are followers on my own blog — but we were testing the counter. Guess what? It works. But now I can’t figure out how to take my picture off! Sheesh…..


  1. Sounds like fun! I wonder how long it will take? A day, maybe? Have fun!

  2. Tuffy is one handsome feline! I’d love to have him follow me home, but I know you’d really really miss him.

  3. I was already following you in my google reader!! 🙂 I am sure you will be to 100 in no time!!

    In Blogger I can go to my dashboard and “Manage the blogs I follow” there I can un-follow sites if I want to. You must have that option somewhere in your blog management too??

    Good luck, and thanks for the give away 🙂


  4. i think a really easy way to get followers is to hold a giveaway, this way people who want to follow can enter, no harm done right you can get tons of followers this way.
    or maybe invite someone who has lots of followers to do a guest post.
    but i think most people will follow your blog if you post things they are interested in and if you come across as open friendly and innovative. and i tell u sewing/quilting blogs are hot right now.
    i for one, do follow your blog.

  5. Great idea! this is an easy way for folks to sign up to follow you. I wonder if I will now have 2 subscriptions to your blog in my Google Reader lol My Missy would turn up her nose at the tuna, she prefers chicken and turkey.
