Birthday & 100 Followers Giveaway

Because it's my birthday and because I apparently have over 100 followers, I am having a little celebration with a draw for the 100 block Quiltmaker magazine! I have never really understood what the follower thing is about,  but I did some research on it and think it has to do with people who read my blog regularly? It's so funny to me that I can write a blog for so many years, and yet am so computer illiterate in many ways!!
Anyway, thanks for checking out my quilt adventures here and for all your comments, advice, laughs, and encouragement over the years!  If you would like to be in the draw for vol. 2 and vol. 3 of this great magazine, leave a comment on this blogpost. Unfortunately we have rotating postal strikes here, so your prize may take a while to arrive, but you'll have lots of time to anticipate it's arrival!

good afternoon Kathy,
I am and will continue to be a loyal follower of your quilting adventures!! I love seeing your finished quilts and your UFO's!

I would love to win :)

Krista said...

I haven't figured out followers entirely either. I put my faves in my blogroll, and follow from there (which is what got me here :)

sophie said...

Followers are readers who add your blog to an RSS feed reader (google reader is one example) which pulls in your new posts and allows the follower to see all the new posts from all the blogs they follow in one place. Blogspot also allows you to see new posts from blocks you follow.

And yea, I've been a follower for a while.

Happy birthday and congrats on being so popular ;-)

Debbie said...

I always enjoy seeing what you are working on...lots of variety with your projects.

Pat said...

Happy Birthday and I'm like Krista, I follow you thru my blogroll. Thanks for the chance to win the books! postal strike and all. :)

Oh, yes please, yes please! I have been playing with the idea of purchasing a copy, so this Giveaway may be Fate's way of intervening :0)
Plus, I dare say you have even more Followers than you think; I "follow" you regularly, but am not a "Follower." (I don't think anyway)... ;0) I simply put all my daily-reads directly on my blog sidebar rather than tracking my Follower list as some do.

A dedicated reader :0)

Happy Birthday!! I follow you through my favourites but should work out the google follow thing as I comment through google. I have not seem any of "Quiltmakers 100 Blocks" where I live and would love to see at least one.

I have your blog address on my blog to watch for postings and I just realized I wasn't a follower, but now I am!
Thanks for the giveaway!
Take care, Leslie

A rotating postal strike sounds like a very polite way to protest. I already have the 100 block issues which are great. But have a happy birthday!
