I want to thank you all again–and again and again–for your support. I appreciate how you have stuck with me through this and haven’t complained a bit about the daily voting. Some of you have even told me that you enjoy it. (You guys are the best!) Some of you have also told me that you feel dismayed, and I don’t want you to worry. Be not discouraged for I am not. My votes have been steady and consistent and from my readers. I don’t have any powerful connections. I have readers. I’m proud that my votes have come from you, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. Remember also that the final decision will not be made on the votes alone. This blog is my resume and my readers are my references–and I have the best community of readers anywhere. If I am meant to have this job, I will win it. If I’m not, I won’t. (Crossing fingers I’m meant to have it!) Either way, I have been incredibly blessed by your support in this process, and for that, I have already won.
If you want to do more than vote, SAM-e allows comments here in support of contestants.
A while back, I asked you for your links. The community here is so strong and I wanted to find a way to share your links the way you have so selflessly shared mine. I was quickly overwhelmed by the process of gathering the links and putting them all together.
I tried to rally my staff.
They gave me nothing but fluff.
Others tried to eat my hair. YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE, POKY.
And others not only ate my clothes….
….but my hair, too.
Then there were the ones who just caused trouble.
With that kind of help, I started sharing one of your links a day on the Chickens in the Road Facebook fan page.
Then I came up with an idea! A way to gather up all your links in a quick, easy format! And here it is–this is a little link doohickey below. All you have to do is click to add your link and the name of your blog–and it will automatically go into the list on this post. All my readers, in one place, in a handy clickable list!
I’m also excited about finding this link-maker because it will give me more and more opportunities to share your links. I can use it to create lists for your blog posts on specific topics. For example, sometime next week when I post a Christmas cookie recipe, I’ll put the link-maker in here and ask for your Christmas cookie posts. (So go post some Christmas cookies on your blogs soon so you can participate.) Other times, it might be a link list for your blog posts on garden or craft projects. This is going to be fun! In this case only, I’m going to ask you not to link a specific post but to link to your main blog page.
Okay, go. Let’s see your stuff! (And thank you again for all your support. I love you guys!)
Visit each other–you will find some great blogs!
