A Celebration for 200 Followers!

Who thought it would only take a few months to reach 200 followers!? I am thrilled beyond compare and I wish to celebrate it with all of you.

In the last few weeks I have seen some blogs doing some truely wonderful things to expose their followers (in only the best ways, of course) and I wish to do the same. So, I propose this...

The very first "WYE? Weekend Wonders!" Every person on this planet is a wonder, a creature of strange curiosities, interesting characteristics, and enthusiastic opinions that they wish to share or we wish to uncover. Every Saturday and Sunday, I wish to introduce you to these kinds of people, but it is all up to you if you want to be featured in the first place.


Here's how things shall procede...

1. Tell me in the comments (or email me at RedMatinee7007@aol.com) that you would like to be a Weekend Wonder!
2. In that same message, give me your email address as well.
3. I will send you a questionaire. (Every questionaire will be just about the same for everyone (the main parts focusing on reading and writing) so that we may see the true diversity in each and every person.)
4. Fill out the questionaire as soon as you can and send it back to me.
5. I will set up a schedule and let you know when you will be featured. Then, watch every Saturday and Sunday to read the other features!

Does that sound like a good plan? I certainly hope so!

NOW, let me know if you want to be featured (and leave me an email) and I will get a questionaire out to you in tip-top-shape!

75 comments:

  1. Incidentally, I was going to make a comment when you reached 200. It must have just happened because you were at 199 30 minutes ago. You must have been waiting and ready to post this. :)

    Kudos!

  2. Matt...I definately knew I wanted to do something when I hit 200 followers and when I was at 199, I figured it would be really soon. I actually only thought of this a few hours ago though. Would you like to be featured?!

  3. I suppose, since you used an interrobang. :)

  10. So loving your new look! And boy you've been busy - how do you fit it all in. You must have more hours in your days than I do. ;) Congrates on 200 followers. I have too - though mine are spread out over google and network blogs, so i haven't seen the number 200 yet - which somehow makes a difference? Shah .X

  15. Okay, I have got everyone down on a list. I will be emailing you soon.

    Matt...I need your email again. :)

    ReplyDelete
  16. I've given it to you, like, three times before. :/

    Please save it this time.

  17. Matt...I KNOW! I just don;t ever write it down. I constantly am asking people for their emails because it is not something I keep track of. It's a problem.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Once you send an email to the address, you can add it to your contacts.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Matt...no der. I just never remember. Lol. I'm usually so organized too!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I will make you remember.

    *Cue plot to Inception.*

    Btw, what's the font you're using for this page?

    ReplyDelete
  21. Matt...Okay, I am getting ready to send out the questionaires to everyone now. I will add everyone's email addresses to my contact list :), I love the movie inception, and I think the font is Georgia.

    ReplyDelete
  22. On the topic of dreams, do you think it would be creepy to tell someone if you've dreamed about them?

    Also, how befitting as I am from Georgia.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Matt...I don't know. Sometimes I find it awkward if people bring it up. It's like you don't know wether to say thank you or ask more about the dream. You know what I mean. I don't tell people unless it was really funny.

    Also, check to see if you got the questionnaire

    ReplyDelete
  24. I suppose I would only tell someone if it were really profound.

    I've already replied to it.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Matt...Geez! That was quick! I have you feature all set up, I'll find a pic, and you will be the first feature this Saturday!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I sent in the questionaire a couple of hours ago AubrieAnne! I'm so excited.

    Thank you so much for stopping by my blog! I'm absolutely LOVING Inside Out, and can't wait to read Outside In! I've actually read the Poison Study novels and they're really good also. I'm hoping to have an interview and giveaway with Maria V. Snyder, so fingers crossed!
    Have a great week!

  29. dtwilight...Thanks! I got it!

    Kristin...That's so exciting! I have read the Posion Study books as well and I would love to have the chance to interview Maria Snyder. You are so lucky! I look forward to reading all about it!

    Matt...Thanks! I fixed it.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Congratulations, AubrieAnne! Two hundred followers is remarkable, and only achievable by those who are exceptionally interesting :) Dtwilight mentioned this to me, but I've been off in the stratosphere this week. I'd love to be featured in your blog, it would be an absolute honour. Poor moi, I'm relatively new to this cyber-frenzy called blogging, and only have six Followers (of whom I cherish dearly :D). Hope I make the short-list.

    Love, blessings and two hundred more to you!

  33. Wow!! You are amazing! I've been reading through your posts and could comment on each and every one!! Congratulations on 200 readers...that's so exciting. Your celebration is such a great idea. It looks like I am your 208th follower! I saw you on For the Love of Blogs...nice work! I have been working on our family's blog for a while and just started a writing blog, which I am absolutely loving (if I had known you when the poll was up, I would have voted "for fun" for sure!). I don't know how you feel about adding new followers to your Weekend Wonders schedule, but I'd love to participate someday. Anyways, I'd better post this comment before it turns into a novel! I can't wait to read more from you!

    Carla...That's wonderful and I am absolutley open to having new followers in the Weekend Wonders! What a better way to get to know someone, right? All I need is an email so that I may send you the questionaire. I'll check to see if it is on your profile. If not, I will leave you a message on your blog which I am going to chack out anyway. Looking forward to having you around. It's always nice to have another person in on the discussions. :)

  36. Matt...I am actually working on a post about all my classes thus far right now. I should have it ready for Thursday.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Matt...:)Nope. I just had to figure out how I wanted to do it. I knew I wanted to do soemthing on my classes since that's what I have been doing lately so I just fit it into that. Of course, if it doesn't answer all of your questions or if you want to know more, fell free to ask. I will definately have it up on Thrusday. It's almost done now.
