500th Blog post and a giveaway

Wow, 500 blog posts, thats a lot of rubbish sprouted from my typing fingertips over the past two and a quarter years since I started in January 2010. Bloggers statistics tell me that I have 126 followers, and that on average 30 people view (and possibly even read) my blog posts every day. Now I have no idea if this is the same 30ish regular viewers, or 30ish odd random people, so in an effort to find out I am having a giveaway.

If you regularly read my blog (I dont mean every day, but now and again) even if you aren't a blogger yourself, please leave me a comment at the end of this post, saying how often you view (read) my blog, and after a week, i.e. next Sunday, I shall put all the names in a hat and pull out a winner for a surprise giveaway - meaning I haven't decided the prize(s) yet, so it'll be a surprise for me, too.

Whether you read my blog daily, or weekly, or monthly, or only very randomly, I do appreciate it, thank you - and good luck!

Hi Joy, I read your blog every time I'm notified that you have published a new post.

Well, you know I follow both your blogs every day Joy and hopefully comment each time also - unless away on holls - just recently. I try, if I read a persons blog to leave a little message so that they know they are not blogging in vain. 500 posts - wow what a feat.

Hi Joy, I probably read blogs about once a fortnight now, I have had to ween myself off the computer a bit, and get some actual work done xx :-)

Joy, I always read all your posts as you are listed on my blog page, and because you have such great photos and interesting daily stories to tell. Thanks for the regular posting and keeping us up to date with what is happening in your world!

Congratulations on 500 posts, Joy!! That is quite amazing. Especially to me as I am a new blogger and have only posted about 21 posts. :) Very cool!!

I love reading your blog and catching up with your life. I am subscribed through GoogleReader, but try to actually visit your blog and read it about once a week.

Hope you have a FANTASTIC day!! :D

I'm a very fickle random reader - but then I'm pretty random at writing them too! I do, however, read yours more frequently than most of the ridiculously large number I follow according to blogger!
