Goals

I am a list-oriented kind of person.  I feel so accomplished when I've got a list with boxes all checked off.  Sometimes, when I'm writing a list, I'll write down things I've already completed...just so I can check the box, you know, gaining momentum...feeling the adrenaline rush of completing a task?  You don't know?  Oh.  Moving on then.
 
So, I've been thinking.  
I'd love to do a giveaway.  
They look like so much fun, and who doesn't like winning something?  
I mean, really, winning something cute and free and fun is pretty much the best thing ever.

Here's the thing though: I need to set a goal before I go ahead with this awesome giveaway I've got in the works.  

100 followers.

That's doable, right?  I totally think so.  I think 100 would be just lovely.  So if you're reading this and you're not a follower, you might just want to consider clicking that little button, 'cause this giveaway is something I'm super excited about.  
 
I'll give you a hint:  One of my closest friends has some seriously mad crocheting skills, and she might just have her very own little business crocheting some of the cutest, most darling, lovely, little goodies out there.  And she just might have agreed to be in on this little plan of mine.  Just.  Might.  
 
So, spread the word, click the button, sign up 'cause it's the cool thing to do, and you might just win something awesome too!  
 
 Check back soon for some more crafty action!
 
Be blessed,

one thing that i have found really effective with getting more followers is commenting on other people's blogs and following them. it gets them aware of you and what you have. it also ups your google search-ability. AND if you participate in a group thing. example: 30 days of blogging. i did that through another blog, signed up on her blog saying i was doing it so other people could check mine out and then i went and followed everyone else that was doing it and commented on their posts about it and told them i was doing it too. i got i think 20 followers from that alone. i'm not saying use people; i wanted more blogging friends too! but i'm just saying it's a good way to get started! also have you heard of the sight total tutorials? You should totally submit some of your stuff to them! if it's posted you will get a lot of hits from that!

Thanks for the suggestions Amanda, I'll definitely have to look into some of those!
