In case you just stumbled upon this post, I’ll tell you upfront that you’re too late! It ended today and the winner chosen was Cowgirl. Congrats Cowgirl – you won!!!
The day before I left for my Boston vacation I had 499 followers. I called my sister, Michelle, and burst, “I need one more follower and I’ll hit 500!”
Instead of answering me, Michelle yelled to her partner, Linda, “You have to follow Celeste’s blog right now!”
Then I learned that Linda told Michelle that she was going to be my 500th follower. My sister laughed at this not believing that Linda could manage it. Amazingly, it looked like Linda was a shoe in. She took her sweet time, however; and Fig and Basil, a wonderful plant-based food and photography blog, beat her too it.
You snooze, you lose Linda!
It touches my heart that 500 people are following my blog. I love you all! To show my appreciation I’m having a contest and will randomly select one of my followers to receive $25 dollars cash.
All you have to do to enter is leave a comment below and tell me how you’re following me (email, WordPress, Twitter, Facebook, Bloglovin). That’s it! It doesn’t matter if you’ve been following me forever or if you sign up right now, or where you live or anything. If you’re following me and you leave a comment below telling me how you’re following, you’ll be entered.
The Winner Will be Announced on September 21st
I will announce the winner on this blog post as well as on another post titled “And the Winner is…” on September 21st. If the winner I select does not email me with a mailing address by October 1st, that winner will be disqualified and I will select another winner.
Thank you all a million times and good luck!
