If Your Friends Jumped Off a Cliff...

...would you follow them?

I'm hoping you're the kind of person that would say, "But of course."

Because I'm about to ask something of you. You see, I am...

It's pretty simple, really. I'd just like more people to admit that they actually read my blog. Or at least stop by periodically to see all my cool pictures, read about my wonderful Hubby, SNOOP, admire my dogs, marvel at my adorable grandchildren, follow our motorcycling trips and/or see just how boring my life really is.

Now I know there are quite a few people who read this blog. But only three have admitted to being followers. The funny thing is, I don't know any of them. But I love, Love, LOVE them just the same. Because they've stepped up and admitted publicly that they read my humble little blog.

Becoming a follower is easy. If you are reading this through Facebook (or perhaps on your Crackberry), the first thing you have to do is go to my actual blog. Look for the followers gadget (shown in the following image at lower right).

It's the little box that looks like this.
Click on the button that says Follow, and this window should pop up...

Use one of the designated account types to sign up and just follow the prompts that are presented.

It's that simple.

I won't know when or even if you are reading. So, you could sign up to be a follower and never come back again. If you wanted. By why would you do that? Then you'd miss out on all the fascinating and fun stuff I write about.

I ask this for a couple of reasons. One, it would just make me feel good to know I can prove the existence of more than three readers. Two, if new folks stumble across my blog and see that I only have a limited number of followers, they won't think it's worth hanging out to explore.

Besides, one day when I am rich and famous (as a result of what, I have yet to figure out), you can tell people, "I know ToadMama. I've been following her blog for years."

Please sign up to be a follower.

Pretty please?

Pretty please with sugar, whipped cream and a cherry on top?

Tell your friends to sign up, too. And tell them to let their friends know, as well.

Won't you please help? Click that Follow button now. Or click here.

As Oleta Adams sang, "I don't care how you get here, just get here if you can."

Thanks in advance!


  1. Ok, I did it!! Thank you for the instructions!

  2. Ok-I did it also, but I don't think it worked-says something about me and my computer skills.
    Thanks for the instructions. I enjoy your Blog

    Your Mom

  3. Oh, I so know what you're talking about when you say snoop. Hee hee.

  4. Yeah, having a blog sort of opens you up to snoopers. But that's okay. It's sort of satisfying in a weird way to know they're out there. (-:


Please say something...
