Maggie’s 500th Blog Follower

I’m meeting a lot of great writers and experienced blogger by participating in the WordPress Blogging 201 course. When Ellen Hawley’s site catches my eye, “Notes from the UK,” I head over to read some of her posts. She writes books, and I read more. I love her humorous writing. It sparks me to add humor to my blog posts and books. I find a review by Maggie Wilson on Ellen’s latest book, The Divorce Diet.  So, I head over to Maggie’s site and right at the start I laugh at the title, “The Zombies Ate My Brains.” Now, I’m following Maggie’s blog post for almost the same reason as Ellen’s, but with an added,


I love Zombies too.

I write a comment to Maggie on her book review and get a response, “Well, hello and thank you kindly for stopping by. OK, stand back folks! Let the marching band through to announce my 500th follower! Whoo-hoo! C.E, it’s you! Thanks!” (C.E., initials for Christine Elizabeth).


My response back, “Whoo-hoo for me! That might be some kind of a good luck number. I’ll do a blog! Maybe precisely 500 words about being your 500th follower, and see what happens. I can assure you it will have a funny twist.

 Maggie’s response, “Now that I look forward to reading.” : D

Awkkkk…what did I get myself into? 500 words are two pages long, and with a funny twist? Right at the start I’m at a disadvantage. Think of it, in line with 499 others. I’m at the end, a heart wrenching thought. How can I be happy or funny with that? All I can hope for is that she gets followers following me (good idea, follow my blog site too), and I can hold up a half-way mark Success Banner as the proud 500th follower of 1,000. Then I can say, Whoo-hoo, way to go Maggie!  But that will be short lived; she’ll be on her spunky fast way to a million.

 That might be a funny twist right there. But first things first, let’s try for 500 facts, not the number of facts, just the number in the facts, from the internet. Some are fun, and some are just plain unable to understand stupid!

  1. Simpson’s 500th episode of “At Long Last Leave,” not awful but not spectacular.
  2. AOL Thinks it can Succeed as the 500th Groupon Clone. Whaaat does that mean?
  3. The 500th episode of Monday night WWE RAW Live. Wrestling anyone?
  4. The 500th Being Had Times! Vitebsk sold to Russia. From Russia with Love?
  5. Letters to an Unknown You. Part 15//500th blog post. Hint of a smile for this one?

Awkkkk again…don’t think 500 facts will cut it! So, Maggie, I’ll go with the 500 words with a funny twist about being your 500th blog follower. Love the Whoo-hoo, stand back folks for the marching band, and proudly hold up the half-way mark Success Banner, with the hope that followers follow me.

Picky! Picky! Word.doc word count is 500. WordPress’s like a jumping bean!

    • To think Zombies brought us together in Blogland! That puts a smile on my face…everyday! Whoo-hoo, I’ll still hold the half-way mark Success Banner as the proud 500th follower of 1,000. I’ll be the FIRST of many…you’re on your way to a MILLION.

    • Barbara, thank you so much for reading this post and making a comment. I checked out your site and I’m intrigued to read more of your writing. Seems we have some things in common. Probably not the love of Zombies! But, I’m also writing memoirs (in progress), my own and coauthoring one with a dear friend in Switzerland. My daughter-in-law has two published children’s books. I have a post about that on my site under Featured Friends. Happy writing to us!
