(If I do not have your link, no, I certainly haven't got some agenda! It's either I can't find you, or your name is different than the one I see you commenting with. Do comment if I don't have the link, your name is wrong, I'm not following you, or Blogger says you're following but you're not listed above! Thanks!)


Don't forget that the Second Writer's Platform-Building Crusade has begun! This event is hosted by Rachael Harrie at Rach Writes.... and is exactly what it sounds like--a way of increasing your blogging platform through followers, comments, etc.

I joined up for the first (but too late for the challenge) and it's been fun so far; there are some great Crusaders out there!

Sign up and learn more HERE.

The Golden Eagle said...

Michael: Thank you!

And I'm excited to see more of yours. :)

Margo: Thank you!

I'm looking forward to learning more about you as well!

Pk: Thanks! :)

Margo: Thank you!

Another Crusader; great!

Simon: Thanks!

Will you be signing up?

Alex: Thank you!

I figure it's one of the best ways to tribute the people who follow me--a way of getting their link out to more people and, therefore, perhaps boosting their own follower count.

Heather: Thanks!

Old Kitty: Thank you!

The Happy Whisk: Thanks! :)

Thanks for commenting, too.

Liz: Thanks for the cheer!

Al: Thank you!

The Golden Eagle said...

Karen: The link thing?

I saw someone else linked to all their followers, and I thought it was a great way of thanking them; so when I got 10 Followers, way in the beginning, I gathered up all the links and did so for the next 10 and so on; now I do it every 100 because it's hard to keep up and I'd end up posting the list so often. :P

Laughingwolf: Thank you!

I never got "unfollowing" blogs. Blogger sometimes complains I'm following too many, but that's usually for Wordpress or other hosting services, so I don't see why they'd do it for Blogger.

Mary: Thank you!

Alison: Thanks! :)

Angela: Thank you!

Summer: Thanks!

I certainly agree!

Emily: Thank you!

It's been a lot of fun, too; will you join? :)

Wendy: Thanks! :D

Charles: It's the comments that really say people are reading blogs, so I wouldn't say it's much of an issue.

Kris: Thank you!

The Golden Eagle said...

Brian: Thank you!

Laura: It took me a little while, but I already had the names (and most of the links) of over 200 people.


Holly: Thanks! :)

Lynda: Thank you!

Emily: Thanks!

(Cool--confetti. :D)

Kulsuma: Thanks! :)

Michelle: Thanks!

Awesome; I'll see you on the Crusade, then.

Misha: Thank you! :)

Jules: Thank you!

Clicked on the little Follower icons, Googled the names if there wasn't a link on their profile, searched the names of the blog if I remembered what it was. :)

Clarissa: Thanks!

Are you Crusading as well?

The Golden Eagle said...

Lee: Thank you!

Ben: Hi, there! Welcome to The Eagle's Aerial Perspective!

I'm glad to meet you, too! Looking forward to seeing you around on the Crusades.

Kari: Thanks, on both accounts! :)

Rachael: Thank you!

I'm excited to find out what the next Challenge will be.

Tricia: Well, it's safe to say I hope they do! ;)

Lydia: Aw, thank you!

Amanda: Thanks! :)

Hello, Crusader!

Gail: Thank you!

I've got you on the list. I'm glad you enjoy your visits, Gail!

Sharon: Thank you!

Tracy: Thank you so much!

Janet: It's a way of repaying what all you followers are doing for me. :)

Jai: Thank you! :)

It hasn't been terrible here; it's snowing lightly right now, for example, but there hasn't been anything really heavy.

I hope things continue to go well for you!

Jen Chandler said...

WOW! Congratulations! That's awesome. And you're too cool to put a link to ALL your followers!!!
You rock :D

Oooh, I'll have to check out the Crusade. Thanks for the link!

Catherine Ensley said...

Hello fellow crusader. Wonderful blog! I look forward to reading it.

The Golden Eagle said...

Jen: Aw, thank you! :)

It's one of the few ways I can pay back all of you for what you do for me, and my blog!

Anytime! I hope you'll join me and the other Crusaders!

Catherine: Hi there, Crusader! Welcome to The Eagle's Aerial Perspective!

I look forward to getting to know you in the coming Crusades!
