200 FOLLOWERS!!!!!! WHAT!?!?!?


I KNEW yesterday my number of followers was perched precariously close to the big TWO-OH-OH. And this in 30 seconds ago...I saw it. 200!! REALLY! You have no idea how excited this makes me! Seriously.

I've been blogging since 2009. I've started and stopped countless times. I've started and stopped countless blogs *grin*. But no matter what I did, I KNEW that blogging was where I belonged. Widdershins has been a lesson in trusting myself and the blog community as a whole. And recently it has taught me to trust myself enough to be 100% myself -- no apologies necessary.

EVERY ONE OF YOU have made this possible! I know how tough it is to visit a blog each time there's a new post. The blogs I read are special to me and, though it takes a bit to make my rounds sometimes, I do my best to stop by, say hello, and catch up. To think that people do that for me is, well, humbling to say the least.

But enough of all that blabbering! It's party time!!!

I know people do give-aways and parties and blogfests for their 200th follower post. I was caught TOTALLY unprepared for all of that (not to mention my Humanities class has been a crash-course in correct formatting of papers for literary analysis and has forced me to do NOTHING but PAPERS for the past three weeks!).


I'm leaving it up to YOU. Yes. YOU.

What would YOU like to see here? Seriously. Questions? Answers? Pictures? You don't want to see me dance so I'll leave that off the list ;).

It's all because of YOU guys that I'm still here, three years later, and can now say I've passed that 200 follower mark which, to me, is HUGE!!

TELL ME! WHAT ON EARTH DO YOU WANT TO SEE HERE NEXT? And if you want a give away...don't be shy! Oooh! Maybe I could figure out a way to send you all a cup of coffee and a scone! Note to self: learn to apparate with hot beverages...

XO Jen


  1. Congratulations on your followers milestone! That's great!!

  2. Congrats! The post expressing your gratitude is enough for me! On to 300! Are you going to do the A to Z Blog Challenge? Bet you'll make 300 in a hurry if you do!

  3. Yay! That's so exciting! I'd definitely love to see you dance, but I'd settle for pretty pictures. :)

  7. CONGRATULATIONS!!!! I agree, no giveaway needed...just your excitement in this post is enough. Have an awesome day!

  8. I see it's 202 now :-)

    Being a fairly new follower, I think it's too early for me to say what I do and don't want. I must like your blog already or I wouldn't have followed it :-)

    Congratulations on all your followers!


Well, hello! I'm so glad you made it. Come inside and sit by the hearth. I'll take your coat and hat. The kettle is singing and there's cake and candles and good conversation. Settle in and make yourself at home. Don't mind the wolfhounds; they're friendly if you give them a bit of lemon curd.
