Just a short little note today to say that of all the posts I have done, the last two...the one on redbirds and the one on chocolate....have received the most comments yet here and on Facebook. I have even had some readers stop by my office to say how concerned they were over the possible demise of chocolate in 2014! I must have really scared those chocoholics out there! And yes, it was for real, not a joke, although I admit that it is sometimes hard to tell with me.
So here's the deal....I am desperate for followers. OFFICIAL followers - Not just the ones that read my blog through the connection on Facebook, but the ones that click on the right side under the heading of, what else - FOLLOWERS, and join the ones that have already braved the stigma of admitting reading Late to the Party. Now, don't get me wrong. I appreciate and adore each and every one of you that read Late to the Party! And I love the comments, whether here or on the FB link, but I am trying to build a much bigger base of those who admit to reading the craziness I churn out every week.
With that in mind, in the spirit of giving AND in the form of an outright selfish bribe, I am having a giveaway. When I reach 50 followers here at Late to the Party I will draw a name from the "official" followers list. And since the chocolate post seemed to have touched a nerve, it will be for a bag of Ghirardelli chocolates, specifically the Pumpkin Spice Caramel Squares. These were only offered for sale this past October or November through New Year's. It helps to have a husband who works for Ghirardelli so we have our own private stash that I am willing to share.
So wake the kids and call the neighbors and spread the news!
Here's how to enter:
1) Just become an "official" follower and leave me a comment saying so. If you are already follower, you can join in by doing the same.
2) Leave a comment on any of my posts and earn another chance - Follow the prompts for comments under the specific post or tell me if and why you liked it.
3) Share this on your blog and come back and leave another comment!
Make sure you leave your contact information (email or blog addy) so I can contact the winner!
And the official count begins! Good luck!
