My First Follower!

Imagine my surprise when I signed on this morning, and discovered that I actually had my very first follower for this blog. I was delighted! Especially when I found out that it was Carma Dutra of the wonderful blog, Carma's Window.

What I meant by a "follower" is someone who has signed up to "follow" my blog, which just means that they like my blog enough to want to come back every once in a while and see what's going on. This way, if you "follow" it, you never have to worry about losing track of me, because it will always be listing on the back of your own blog, on the dashboard--it's like filing it for you. Hey--look to the right of this column and you will see a block entitled, "Followers." Beneath that it says 'Followers' again, with little squares that look like tiny portraits of people under it. Those are the people that "follow" this blog. All you have to do is sign in or click on "Follow" and follow the simple instructions...it's as easy as that...and I sure would appreciate it! Now back to what I was saying...

Carma's Window is a wonderful blog filled with loads of information about writing for children and young adults, which is a subject that is near and dear to my heart.

Carma blog has book reviews; offers a newsletter and a free ebook; contains links to other helpful sites; has book excerpts; and contains many useful tips that will help you hone your craft of story writing. It's a wonderful blog and you really should check it out!

Another blogger that you shouldn't miss is: Debbie of Ms Sparky's Mishaps & Misadventures . This is an extremely important blog site because it deals with things that are going on in Iraq that you might not otherwise hear about. Debbie has the inside track on subjects such as: Burning Toxic Waste Makes US Soldiers Sick, But The Pentagon Refuses To Admit It ~and~ KBR And Their Third Country National Slaves (i.e. slave labor of unqualified workers from countries other than the U.S. whose poor and unsupervised work is responsible for the unnecessary electrocutions and other deaths of U. S. military); plus other stories of this magnitude. You owe it to yourself not to miss this one. It is actually riveting and electrifying (pardon the pun) at times. I promise you that you'll never be bored if you check in with this blog; it's great!

Before I go, I feel that I must draw attention to at least one more of the bloggers that I'm following and this one has a blog that's a real "mouth full." It's Morgan Mandel's Double M's take on books, blogs, dogs, networking & life. Like the title proclaims, this blog has a little of everything in it, and it is so much fun! It's filled with the unexpected, as she interviews authors, visits Pet Expos, and fills our heads with lots of information on how to improve our writing skills. In addition, the other blog of hers that I follow is called: BLOGS THAT RULE - BEST OF BLOGS . This blog contains exactly what it says and more: hot blogs that you don't want to miss. It's an alphabetical listing of blogs that are updated frequently. It's almost like a glorified "Blog List," but even better. I think you'll really enjoy it!

Until next time...stay safe, stay well, and may God bless you all.

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.

Hi, Joannah!

Thank you so much for your awesome comment. I'm so glad that you like my blog, and I look forward to having you stop by to visit again.

If there is anything that you can think of in particular that you would like to see discussed here on Cynde's Got The Write Stuff, please leave me a note, ok?

Thanks again,

Hi Cynde,
Thanks so much for the nice comments. I am glad we are followers and what an honor to be the First!

I believe that followers is the ultimate networking group for writers.

Hi, Carma!

I totally agree with you that "followers" is an ultimate networking group. Not only do we support each other, but we also get to meet new people while we're doing it, thus expanding our network of support. It's great!

Words cannot express what a thrill it is for me to have you support me like this, especially because I'm just starting out and I need the support so badly. I will always be indebted to you and those that have given me a boost here at the beginning, while I seem to need it the most.

Thanks again, Carma, and God bless you!
