20 Followers?!? Sa-weet!


Holy awesomeness!  Thank you, thank you, thank you to all the Perfecting The Craft followers!  I'm so happy to have so many friends to perfect the craft with!  I feel like there should be some kind of contest or giveaway.  I'm kind of new to all this.  Is there some kind of protocol for having giveaways on writing blogs for the amount of followers?  I've heard of the 100 mark, but are there any below that?  What's your opinion?  Maybe I'll have to bend the rules if not at 20 then maybe soon!

Thanks again, especially to all those that visited today for Shallee's interview.  I'm getting ready to ask our next week's guest!  Be sure to come visit again :)

Have a fabulous fall weekend!


  1. I've wondered those things myself. Been blogging for over a year and haven't had many followers until recently. If there is a blog protocol, I'd like to know where to find it. And you're welcome. Reaching out to other writers shows you're not an introvert, a good writer's quality.

  2. I don't think there's a blog protocol for giveaways - just do what you like! When I reached 30 followers I threw an extra book in the mix for the contest I was already hosting. I've seen people have giveaways @ 50. 100 seems to be a general milestone too! I'm nearish to reaching that one, so can't wait ^.^

  3. Cool. Thanks for the advice. I already have a really awesome give away for my 100 planned. Seriously, awesome. I can't wait for it. I think I'll stick with a super 50 contest :)

  4. No general blog protocol ... that I'm aware of anyway. I had a giveaway when I reached 100 followers. And then that giveaway gained me an additional 70 followers in a few days. Now I'm very close to 200 ... but I think I might wait on another giveaway since I gained the followers so quickly (I'll be out of money).

    Congrats on 20 followers!

  5. I'm a new follower and fellow aspiring author! My blog has 26 at the moment, and I'm pretty stoked as well! I was planning on having a contest at 50. Stop on by if you'd like!

  6. Quinn, I totally know what you mean about being out of money with giveaway's. Do some critique's. Those are free and who doesn't need a fresh pair of eyes?

    Alexia, thanks for stopping by! I'm headed to your blog right now.


Thanks so much for visiting! I appreciate your comments and feedback.
