Say Hello!

My followship (yes, that's a word!) has increased a lot lately and I'm very, very grateful. However, Blogger won't allow me to see everyone's blog page when I click on the little images in the sidebar. So, could the ones I haven't followed back leave a short comment below (just a quick hello) so that I can click your names and repay your kindness!

The Second Crusade!

I hope all of you made it onto Rach's list of Crusaders this year (or this part of the year - I think there's another crusade later in the year). Last fall there were 50 Crusaders, but I have it from a reliable source that there are 200 Crusaders this year! Rach sure will have her hands full.

What is the Crusade? It's the "Writer's Platform-Building Crusade", where the purpose is to introduce blogging writers to one another and get them to communicate (and follow each other). There are loads of fun challenges and I made a lot of great buddies in the last Crusade. 

Unfortunately the application time has closed (so sorry for being late with this - I'll post earlier next time to give you heads up!), but I just wanted to congratulate Rach on her success and say to the other Crusaders: Can't wait to get to know you all!

But, I see you thinking, there are only 4 winners in this post, where are the others???

Good question, I say. You’ll have to pop over to Marieke’s Musings and Rach Writes to find out the other winners.

Good luck!

*Unfortunately we didn’t quite get to 50 entrants, but we’ll definitely have some books up for grabs in our next contest as well.
