You Guys are the Best + Giveaway!





Have I mentioned how much I love all you guys?!  'Cause I SERIOUSLY do! 

Thanks so much for all the kind comments yesterday. It really lowered my stress and guilt levels (even though I lost a follower yesterday, he he). This blogging thing is built on give and take relationships, and I don't want to be a taker more than a giver. Ya know?

Anyway, as a way of saying thanks and showing my appreciation to all of you, I am going to select one random commenter from today's post to win any book of your choice. International bloggy friends are included too!

I will announce the winner on Friday.
Thank you for your support and your comments and your FRIENDSHIP. You guys are the BEST!!

I get so sad when I lose a follower! Well, I just discovered your awesome blog today, and I'm following you now, so you've got a new one to replace the old :)

HOw could you lose a follower??
Even though I'm just chiming in for support - I still think you are awesome. And this is a great contest.

Caledonia Lass said...

You know, there are times when life is a bit more important than blogging. Yes. I said that. :D
If you lost a follower, their loss as I am sure you will gain many! Have a great rest of the week!

Bloggers been acting up about the comments. Irritating. So, no worries on visiting or commenting. I feel that we've established a friendship. Enjoy your summer break!

Meredith said...

Aw, that's so sweet of you! And that monster is adorable. :)

Nicole Zoltack said...

The blogging community is awesome. I love you all! And that monster is just too cute! :)

Roxane B. Salonen said...

Shannon, I was so relieved to know you sometimes have to fall away from the blogging community, too. I honestly don't know how you keep up as well as you do. This year has brought change for me that has demanded my reading habits change. I've really missed being a more frequent visitor here, just because you're so awesome. Just know that I am still around and thinking of you and am glad you're still on my blog list. I still have hopes of an IRL meeting someday. Peace to you, sunny friend!

P.S. The baseball records you mentioned yesterday remind me of my soccer kiddos. One undefeated, one just starting out and nothing counts, and one, no wins I don't think. :)

Maidenveil said...

Thanks, Shannon! You are amazing too! :) *hugs*

Hilary Melton-Butcher said...

I really think the blogging community is quite a friendly bunch! Sure we have our moments but we generally get along you're right about the give and take factor, we're willing to give because we all share the passion for reading!

Beth said...

Sorry about the lost blogger, but hopefully you'll make it up immediately! And don't worry - it happens to all of us!

Carolyn V said...

OH no. You lost a follower? I'm sorry. But you really rock! And the others are right, it happens to everyone.

Susanne Drazic said...

Oh, Shannon, you are too sweet! That monster picture is just soooo cute. Glad you are feeling better after getting some blog love. You rock, lady! Have a GREAT Thursday!!

Grillyfish said...

You are lovely and whilst I am only an occasional commenter I am a frequent visitor! :)
