Followers!
*
Can we talk? I want to talk about "Followers" - do you follow my blog? If you do, thank you so much! I've never understood the concept of "followers" because in my mind if you were on my blog reader or list of favorites then I felt I was 'following' your blog. HMMMM - apparently I've been wrong. Big Sigh!!!!
*
I'm here to ask a little favor (OK, maybe it's a huge favor) - if you don't already follow my blog I'd love it if you would. I need YOU - I have 144 'followers' at this point but would love more. You'll find my "Follower Gadget" at the top of the right hand column of my blog.
*
Sign up to "follow" me by Saturday, September 18th and I'll have a drawing for something special just for my "Followers".
*
I appreciate your visits and your comments - would you 'follow' my blog, as well, please!
*
In Friendship!

Darlene, I am a follower of your wonderful blog :-) I too stand amazed at how many people follow my little blog. But blogging has been such a wonderful opportunity to meet new friends near and far.

As you always say -
In friendship!

Cindy said...

In friendship......

Actually, for this comment:
In FOLLOWERS.......

Love it, Darlene.....LOL

You're followed now, girlfriend !!

Yvette said...

Of course I am a follower. Who wouldn't want to be? :)

mcregan said...

I am new to blogging and don't understand "following". Why do I want a lot of followers? Thanks

Quilt Hollow said...

Hmmmm...could somebody be interested in a GO!? I've always followed you but will make it official!!

Quilt n Queen said...

I'm new at blogging and I thought just like you. All along I thought I was following some amazing blogs (and Quilting Daze has been on my side bar - Blogs I Luv to Follow - all along) only to find out I'm not. I'm learning about blogland bit by bit. I would love if you would follow me too. I need all the encouragement I can get.

Kim said...

Ok...I did it that way, but I was already following via my Windows Live email program. ;-)

CaraQuilts said...

Long time follower here! I know what you mean about the wording, it's always bothered me slightly.

Deb said...

Mary from Quilt Hollow sent me. You already have what you need, but I'll become one more!

Debi said...

Darlene, I read your blog every day, but just now became a follower!

Deb said...

I'm an official follower now....but have been viewing your blog for some time now. Love it.

call me crazy said...

I've always followed you too. :-) Good luck in getting a GO!

Anne Ida said...

Ok, ok, ok... I haven't been a fan of this follower stuff, thinking my reading of blogs via Bloglines kept me up to speed on what's going on in the blogging world (and as you know that has included your blog for well over two years now). But since Bloglines is closing down and the Follower system is connected to Google Reader, I have bit the dust.... I'm officially a follower of your blog!

Quilter Kathy said...

I don't get the whole 'follower' thing...I'm still not fully in this century of technology yet :)
Apparently I have followers too, but I don't know what that means. I am still amazed that I know how to blog!!

sewprimitive karen said...

I don't understand the "plus" of the follower thing...?

Dresden Quilter said...

I am a groupie follower! I would like to become President of the Darlene fan club!

Terry said...

I've always followed your blog in my Google reader, but now I'm officially follower #162! Woo hoo! LOL

Crafty Mama said...

Hehe, I must not be very blog proficient. I thought I was already following you, but I guess not. I am now though!☺☺

Nancy said...

Happy to make it "official" for you...

Thelma said...

I'm happy to oblige.

Susan said...

Lately I've found myself clicking the follow button on many that are in my reader so here's to one more...I am now an official follower. In friendship to you!

PunkiePie said...

I'm a follower! Have been for a while but rarely comment. ;)

paulette said...

Hi Darlene!
I have been following your blog since my first day blogging...after all you left a comment on my VERY FIRST posting!! You have been on my side bar ever since but I always forget to go through the motions on your blog...so I just did that!! Take care (does this have to do with anything GO!ing around?)
Paulette

Chookyblue...... said...

i don't understand the difference in followers and google reader when they all work in together..........but as I have everyone I read in google reader now bloglines is dying and I don't need to double them up again as I have them all organised in different folders.......if I start following blogs then that adds them in again to another folder in google reader........it is all so confusing.......does anyone know anymore........goodluck with your followers......I am a little confused like you...........

Ginger Patches said...

I too follow in my Google reader--I "followed" a couple people a while back because of a give-away but it messed up where they were in my reader (took them out of their usual order and moved them to the bottom of the list, where I never look). So I don't do that anymore. But I definitely "follow" you in my reader lol!!

Carol in E TN said...

I am following!

Susan said...

I was already subscribed to your blog through Google Reader, but now I'm a bona fide 'follower' too! :)

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

I'll push the button for YOU anytime Darlene!

Doodlebug Gail said...

I've been a follower for a while now! Wouldn't miss what you have to say for anything.

Hugs

Winona said...

Darlene, I have followed your blog for a long time, but I just officially became a follower. Have a great day. Winona

Jeanette said...

What is a follower anyway? I have never figured that out.

I read your blog regularly through my google reader. What does becoming a follower do? Is it going to send me emails with your posts, or is it just to have my picture listed as one of your readers and doesn't actually DO anything.

Shakerwood said...

Imagine, all this time I have been following you but not following you, do you follow? I'm officially following you now. If they could only count the number of people that had you on their sidebar!!

Vivian said...

I've been reading your blog for quite a while, but now I'm an official follower, and I'm happy to be one.
I always enjoy reading what you have to say.

Carol said...

I'll make it official right now!

Madame Samm said...

Hello Darlene...already had you on my blog list as favourites..so yes I will be a follower too...there..
will build that up in no time..
love coming here the door is always open..shhhhh closing it now..madame samm

Madame Samm said...

psst closed the door to quick..I invote you to follow me too..
there closing it again Ü

Joanna said...

I'm on the follower list now, Darlene:) And on the feed list, and on the 'wish I could quilt like you list,' etc!

Loris said...

I think I'm already 'official' as I see my little blog button/picture. Let me know if I'm not. Hope your # doubles :-)

Kim said...

I love your blog and have been following.
Hugs

Carol said...

Darlene I read your blog all the time but was not a follower. I just signed up to follow your blog.

Millie said...

Darlene, I am a happy follwer of your blog. Good luck getting more followers...LOVE LOVE LOVE your blog.

Christine M said...

I thought the same as you, that you are following someone if you have them on your blog list. Anyway, I've now signed up as a "follower" to make it official!

Pokey said...

I'm a follower! Love your stuff, always in friendship!!
:-}pokey

Freda said...

I'm a new follower and love your blog.

sunny said...

I have you blog on my list of favorites, but I just realized that I wasn't an official 'follower'. I am now!

Nancy-Rose said...

I follow you - and have for a very long time! But on bloglines.com

Just thought I'd let you know there's more quilters 'watching' you than your "followers" numbers can tell you - tee hee!

Becky said...

I thought I was a follower. Just I just had you listed at the top of my Google Reader. Love reading your blog.

Congratulations on winning the pattern at Bee in my Bonnet!

In Friendship!

Wendy said...

I just found your blog through Crazyboutquilts blog and am now a follower

Magnolia Bay Quilts said...

I have no idea where we're going, but I've been a "follower" for a long time now! :-) Yours is one of my favorite blogs!

call me crazy said...

Check my latest blog post~ I nominated you! And thank you for being such a sweet friend! :-)

Donna S. said...

I know!! I am not signed up on many blogs as a "follower" but have a number that I read daily. I now am an official "follower".

VickiB said...

Okay, now I'm Officially following! Read every day, but not officially, apparently.

I am now a follower. Was sent here by crazy'boutquilting. I had to delete my previous post as I had a big typo (crazy'boutquiting) which gives her blog title a whole new meaning :)I love having your blog now show up on my google reader on my smart phone!

tami said...

Done!

Kim D. said...

Hi Darlene, I've been a follower for awhile now and would love it if you would stop by and follow me also.

Wendy said...

I'm pretty sure I'm already a follower but I better check. I love visiting your blog.

Retta said...

Darlene, I to have been a follower for quite a while. While not a blogger, I look forward to seeing the updates and check every day to see what comes next.

Huisvlyt said...

Hi Darlene!
I am one of your many "biggest fan... folowers". I love your blog and it is a great inspriation to me. Elzaan

Pam said...

Hi Darlene

I don't really get the whole "follower" thing either but I certainly do read your blog on a regular basis - I don't always comment though. So I will add myself to your "follower" list. I usually follow through Google Reader.

Happy stitching

Piecefulafternoon said...

It wouldn't let me join - but I follow your blog on bloglines already.

Peg - Happy In Quilting said...

Already a follower Darlene and I have been for a long time, love your blog.

Calamity Jane's Cottage, Bonnie said...

I know Darlene...I go to blogs from my bloglist that has over 400 on it, but I try to follow also. I started a surprise giveaway to my followers. You've been on my bloglist but now I'm a follower. Boy, did you follow this post. LOL

Béa said...

I follow you from my blog list and now "officially". hugs.

QuiltSue said...

I come visiting every day, but have now made myself an official follower.

Anita in Florida said...

I don't exactly 'get' the following either...blogs I want to read are on my Blog List! I am 'following' you now, but you've been 'on the list' for awhile.

Quiltbenaco said...

Ciao, dall'Italia!

Quiltbenaco said...

Ciao, dall'Italia!

Marty G said...

Love your blog. I'm a follower now.

Country Log Cabin Quilter said...

I am now an "official" follower, although I was actually a follower before via google reader. I hope you are a follower of my blog.

Joyce said...

I always used Bloglines so didn't bother with following but now that Bloglines is about to disappear (sigh) I am using Google Reader and Following automatically puts you on that. Confusing? Yes.

Talin's Corner said...

Already a follower. Good luck on your goal.

Darlene B said...

I've been following your blog for a long time - but today I made it "official" !!!

Karen said...

I am back again. Got to thinking that I have your blog on my blog favorites but not actually as a follower. So now you have another Follower to add to the list. Your count has grown quite a bit since I looked yesterday. Good luck!

Stina said...

Same here. have followed you a long time.. I too need followers .. so we sit in the same boat..lol...

Stitched With Prayer said...

Wow Darlene, I have no idea how I missed signing up to follow your blog...after all, you are my 'Wonder Quilter' *wink* Must have been a 'senior moment' Anyway, I am now a follower. Sorry it took me so long! Hugs...

Angela - patch said...

Darlene, I follow your blog time ago and I'm yet follower

Karen said...

Girl...... how did I not know I was following you??? I had added you to my blog, and didn't know. But that's been changed - I'm now a follower LOL!!

Karen said...

Girl...... how did I not know I was following you??? I had added you to my blog, and didn't know. But that's been changed - I'm now a follower LOL!!

Monica said...

Ya know...I couldn't quit you if I tried. *wink*

MIRIAM said...

Hola amiga de internet,aqui estoy para seguirte,me encanta tu blog un abrazo desde Venezuela

rebecca said...

How remiss of me. i swore I followed your blog. took care of that error today!!

Marcia said...

I now follow your blog "officially" rather than as a lurker.

Janet said...

You can subsribe to a blog in google reader to keep up with it without becoming a follower. If you become a follower, you automatically have that blog put in the reader list. Those are the differences as I understand them.
I've been following along with you for a while now, good luck with the numbers and what your heart desires, could it be a Go?

rockgranny said...

I've been a follower for awhile now because I like what you do .Would love if you would stop by my blog and see what I do. Perhaps follow me also.Hope to get Go anyway.

Carrie P. said...

Yes, I am one of those that has your blog on my list and I read it all the time though I might not comment every time but now I am an official follower, just for you.

KQ Sue said...

Hi, I am now clocked in as a "Follower". I have been here before to read your blog. I didn't get the "Follower" thing until recently. I have a counter on my blog that has clocked in 14,000+ visitors, since sometime earlier this year, but only had 2 clocked in "Followers". I got the "Letter" as some of the other AccuQuilt GO! loving blogger did. So I am clocking in as I go to blogs I like to read. Have a great day.

Patty said...

Oh I've been a follower for a long time. Sometimes I'm probably more of a lurker because I don't comment very often. But I do enjoy reading your blog.

Sinta Renee said...

Looks like your request has worked out well. I love reading your blog and seeing your creations! YOU are an old-timer!!hehe! But I agree with Calamity Jane's comments. I was just thinking of having a special giveaway for those people who follow also. Following is like one step away from a personal email from you:)

Fiesta said...

Darlene, I am already a follower. I hope you meet yout goal.

Chris said...

Ok I signed up to be a follower. I stop by often and love all your inspiration. Really did enjoy your Schnibbles posts several weeks ago!

Leah said...

Just found your blog and I like what I see. I love to see what other quilters are working on. I am now a follower. :)

Carole said...

So, enquiring mind want to know, why follow in "followers"? I've seen it but never really paid much attention to it! Would you enlighten me pretty please? Cheers!
