A moment of profound realisation passed over me last Saturday: I'd made my 85th post and I had 85 followers. Okay. Maybe not that profound, given that this is my 87th post and I have 87 followers. Maybe spooky is more appropriate. Or she's-been-spending-too-much-time-on-her-blog-again.
Anyway, as it seems to be customary to celebrate your 100th follower and 100th blog post, I thought I couldn't let either pass without doing something. So I decided on the following for each milestone, and which one comes first will be up to you:
- When I've reached 100 followers, I'll put everyone’s names into a draw via random.org and one person will win . . .a surprise! Evil laugh. It’s a nice surprise, honest.
- When I reach my 100th post (only 13 to go), anyone who comments on that post will get a special new blogging award. Hint: it has something to do with commenting.
Just so you know, when I reach my 1000th follower, I’ll post a short video of William Shatner and I acting together. Seriously, I will. Trekkies honour and all that.
As you may remember, part of the prize for the first place winner of my recent competition was to have a character named after them in one of my short story submissions. I sent the winner an email last night letting her know how that part of the prize is progressing. Currently, Jen Daiker is lost in a post-apocalyptic world and her boyfriend is desperately trying to find her. He's given up the chance of one kind of survival with aliens because he can't live without her. Where is she and will he find her? I don't know yet.
I'll let you know more as the story is written!
