A List

I'm tired...I don't know why but I'm feeling a bit depressed today.  Just one of those days I guess. Maybe because its "Friday Follow" and I have no new followers.  Maybe people just don't like me?  Maybe I'm just reading too much into it...which is extremely likely and oh so possible, lol.  These lists and questionaires used to be all the rage back in my LiveJournal days.  So, here we go, for old time sakes...

  1. You have way more followers than I do. Does that help?

  2. I don't see why you have google friend on your site? oh, and I think its funny you became my friend even after I posted on how badly we beat VA Tech :-)

  3. You have a great blog! Here are some tips to make Friday Follow better: Have you gone and followed other people? Everyone I have followed from FF has always followed back. Next week put the Friday follow up as a post on your blog and if you can, check the the three hosting blogs around midnight est and get your blog on the list right away. For whatever reason, the lower your number on the list, the more followers you will have come to you. Good luck!

  4. Don't feel bad...I've had no followers on Friday, Thursday, and some Tuesdays, and Mondays...LOL. I found if I follow someone first, they have followed back. If you don't have a Friday with any time to follow some, don't worry...there will be some followers and then you can follow back. You have a great blog!

  5. Hello there!

    I found you through the "Friday Follow" and decided to follow you through Google Friend Connect. I'm looking forward to further exploring your blog! Come on over and visit us when you get a free moment. Happy blog hopping! <3

  6. I like you and follow you.. Fun post to read..

    I do not always get that many followers either. I did a while back and got none. Or I followed and they did not follow back. It does not matter. You found me and now we can chat..

    I have a Round Robin this week if you want to join in..

    Have a great week.. You rock.. I gave out awards last night on my blog. Come get the Friend one it has two cute children on it. I want you to have it..
