500+ FOLLOWERS!

You people are awesome. Absolutely fantastic.

End of story.

Actually, that's not the end of story. Because I really must thank you for following and commenting on The Eagle's Aerial Perspective and making this blog administrator beam and jump up and down when she saw the sidebar this morning.

It was only a month ago that I was heralding 400. Gosh. A month. If you had told me I'd have 500 a few months earlier I would have smiled but thought "Heck no". :P

As usual, here are the links to everyone (in the order that they appear on my Dashboard):

***If I missed you, linked to the wrong blog, spelled your name wrong, or otherwise made a mistake, please comment and mention it!***

This will be the last time I put all your links together in one post. I'll still link to followers, but only 100 at a time. These posts are getting rather long. ;)


*****

I'd also like to accept some awards I got. The Friends for the Journey award was given to me by Elliot Grace at So close, but . . .--thank you, Elliot! (He's an amazing blogger, and not only because his book is coming out THIS YEAR.)



And this time, I'm awarding this to all of you. No, this is not an absent I've-got-little-time-gotta-run awarding ceremonies. Really. You all encourage me to blog, and write, and continue on.

But I would like to mention a few friends who run fabulous blogs and who are some of the most frequent commentors here. N. R. Williams, Jules, The Words Crafter, Old Kitty, Summer Ross, and Mist of the blossom rain. Thank you for returning again and again, and for the support. :)



I also received the Creative Blog Award from Deirdra at A Storybook World. Thank you so much, Deirdra!




Isn't it pretty?!

*****

Once again, my thanks to all of you for following--and commenting, and awarding, and doing all those wonderful blogging things. You guys are awesome!
