I’ve reached 1,000 followers!

Today is a big day for me.  I woke up this morning and immediately clicked on my phone to see if I’d hit 1,000.  I knew I was close!  But it officially was at 1,000 around 4 pm this afternoon (pacific time) when I checked.  And trust me.  I was checking all day!  This is a huge milestone to me and is a goal I only dreamed of.  It seems like only yesterday I was at 400 followers.  Heck it seems like only yesterday I was at 4 followers!  At that time I had dreams of having a blog that people read, but I thought I’d be in the clouds if I reached 100.  Now I’m at 1,000 and my blog will have it’s second blogoversary this December.  The thing is, it’s more like it’s first to me because the first year I had the blog I didn’t post much.  I had my baby right after I started my blog and didn’t blog for his first year of life.  Then I started right after he turned one.  So to me this is like my first blogoversary and I want it to be BIG!  (I’ll be working on that!)
I really want to thank everyone who follows me.  I hope I’m doing something right, and I must be if your all following MY blog!  I want to reward you all for sticking with me by doing an amazing giveaway but I’m not sure what an amazing giveaway is anymore.  I can’t buy a kindle for anyone, I don’t have money to giveaway, and I have a stack of books I might be willing to part with if I could just get them read, but even when I do are they books any of you want to read?  I don’t know.  But I’m going to brainstorm this.  Maybe someone will offer up sponsorship and I CAN giveaway a kindle.  Or a Nook, or a gift card.  Or books.  We’ll come up with something!
The point is, I want to thank you all for following me and I hope you’ll all continue to do so.  And I will continue to do giveaways, they just might not be quite as amazing as some peoples, but I’ll be working on doing my best for you guys! 
Thanks for subscribing!


  1. Thats fantastic!!! CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am so excited for you! Then I looked and realized I wasn’t following you when I thought I was! So, you now have 1001 followers! haha. My goal is to have 1000 followers by the end of the year on my Single Parent Retreat blog and I know I’ll be as excited and shouting it to the moon, lol.



  2. Congrats on reaching that milestone.. I’m somewhat feeling that at getting to over 200 followers this week. It was mind-blowing to me, so I can only imagine what 1000 feels like. Anyway, thanks for having a great site! :)


  3. Congrats, Candace!

    I just found your blog not too long ago and I like it a lot. 1,000 followers is a huge milestone… I’m still in that stage of thinking… I’ll never make it LOL…
