What I Love About You Wednesday

My new feature for 2011 is called "What I Love About You Wednesday". As of today 1/9/11, I have 87 wonderful followers. Each and every one of you has added something unique and wonderful to my life, and I want to reach out to each of you and share what I love about you and your blogs.

My plan is to go in order starting with my very first followers, and each week, highlight someone new. If you're a follower of my blog but haven't blogging for a while, I'm going to wait until you get back into it. If for some reason you are following my blog, but I'm not following yours, please let me know. I tried to make sure I was reciprocating, but there were a few people I couldn't find.

So without further ado, I'll introduce my very first follower:

Lisa Maliga: Notes From Nadir She also has a blog for her new book Leaving Nadir.
Lisa started following me when I was a baby in the blogging world and didn't even know what a follower was. She is a writer who has the courage to put her work on the internet. And now she's followed up Notes From Nadir with Leaving Nadir.

Thank you Lisa for being my first follower. Stop by and check out her blog, I dare you not to get hooked.

  6. What a great idea! I get stuck in the patterns of following the same blogs every day, so I'm glad to see a feature on new blogs to check out. Thanks!

  7. What a great idea. I've often thought of doing a spreadsheet of my followers so I remember who everyone is. I'm a big spreadsheet kind of person.

  8. Thanks for the feedback guys. I really feel close to my followers and want to share the love.

    I'm a big spreadsheet person too Patti, but I've been stuck with MS Works at home, but now that I have a new computer, I'm going to buy an office package. I think I'll do a spreadsheet.

  14. Hi Melissa,
    I think it's a lovely idea. Good blog karma! I visit your blog very often but was surprised to see I hadn't signed up as a follower :( you've even left messages in my blog. hmmm, I could have sworn I was in your followers list. Anyway, I will check out the "featured" blogger every Wednesday.
