As you can see, it didn't come true. According to Feedburner, I have 442 subscribers. Sure, I could have paid to sponsor other blogs, requested to guest post for other bloggers, and done more than my favorite two link-ups, but I am so happy to have supportive readers and friends like E-Ho, and like all of you!
E-Ho, what can I say? You're awesome. Even though I'm 58 short of your prediction, I appreciate the friendship we've built over the last six months. Thank you! Send me your address. "Win" or not, you deserve a prize!
I guess I better start making bets with other bloggers and requesting prizes! (That Emily is so smart. Why didn't I think of this first?) Who wants to make a bet with me?
UPDATE: Erin made the point that "it's not about the number of followers, it's about the quality of followers...and I think we're pretty great," and she is abso-freakin'-lutely right! I hope you all understand that you are spectacular, and I love having you around this blog! Thank you for including me in your blog reading!
