The Art of Building a Delicious Following

If you give a girl a blog,
She's going to ask for readers.

And you if give the girl some readers,
She's going to want even more.

And if you give her even more,
She'll want to read their comments.

And if she reads their comments,
She's going to want more fans.

And if you give her more fans,
She's going to want to post more.

And if you give her time to post,
She's going to make you laugh.

And if she makes you laugh,
You'll want to share it with friends.

And if you share the blog with friends,
You're giving the girl more readers!!!

A free virtual pan of freshly baked, still warm out of the oven brownies for whoever can tell me what book my little ditty is based on!!

At the top of the side bar, I've added a new Blogger feature to help grow my audience. Not only does it lend credibility to my blog, but it also tends to draw back return readers!

So please, please, please sign up to be a Delicious Follower! It's super fast! And an avatar (photo/icon) is so not necessary (as you can see by the lack of my own up there).

As I've mentioned before, the more popular my blog is, the more likely an agent or publisher will take me seriously when I'm ready to publish my book. I've already developed a tiny, yet dedicated readership base (thank you to all of you!), but you know.... If you give a girl a blog, she's going to want more readers!

If You Give a Pig a Pancake!
If You Give a Mouse a Cookie!
If You Give a Moose a Muffin!
We love them all.

Not Fair! Those of us who don't have kids and all those kid books around can't even begin to guess! And I was looking forward to those virtual brownies!

Just checking to see if I can leave a comment.

Ding! Ding! Ding! And Gillian wins the virtual brownies!!!

Mom, don't worry. I'll make some *real* brownies when I see you in a week and a day!!

There is a new one now, "If you give a Cat a Cupcake" I get at least one brownie for that one.
