Now, I know that the people who've signed up already won't take this the wrong way, but I don't want the rest of you to be put off 'because it's always the same people'. Do feel free to enter, even if you've never commented or visited before. The point of having this give-away is to share the joy and encourage participation.
Many of my fellow bloggers say that the real stats they pay attention to are the comments that posts generate - and it's true. Once you sign up to a blog and start commenting, it becomes a habit and it engenders a community feeling. This is why the best bloggers make a point of answering each comment (I'm not very good at this!).
So do join the couple in the picture and sign up for the ride!
It seems daft to do a new follower welcome for Jonathan Freitag as he's been a 'friend of the blog' for quite a while. Nevertheless, he's just signed up as a public follower, so he deserves a shout-out. Hello!
