Calling Goober #100

Okay, my blogging friends -- Gumbo Writer's Goobers (Followers), visitors, regular readers, and drive-bys/dropper-inners alike -- first let me say how much I really heart y'all.

Secondly, I don't condone bloggers trolling and begging for or otherwise applying used car salesman-like pressures to amass followers who probably don't wanna be followers. Gah-awww-lyyy (said in Goober Pyle of Mayberry RFD voice), I figure you're like me...if I dig a blog a lot, I'm gonna follow it without anyone asking. Right?

So, with that said, I've noticed my bloggy home is approaching the golden number of 100 Goobers! (Yeah, I know, I'm slow on the uptake with it.) And since Mars and Jupiter have apparently aligned in my cranium, I thought it might be nice to have a little contest in conjunction with the 100th Follower appearing out of the ether. How's that sound? Besides, I adore round figures (sorta like my own physique), and wish the same look for my full-bodied blog. LOL

Goober #100 will be awarded some jazzy snazzy blog bling to display in perpetuity. Said Goober will also receive some trashy little trinket (um, I mean highly valuable fantabulous prize) in the mail if he/she resides in the continental U.S. That's right...I'm cheap and quick like my favorite recipes!

Sidebar: Seriously, please don't feel pressured to jump on the Goober bandwagon...although I DO hasten to add that we have a good time amongst our nutty selves. And, of course, if you're a mercenary man or material girl and just want the goods, that's fine too. *wink*

Do I qualify? Have been and always will be a goober. Hope all is going well. Let JL know we are proud of him.

Jessica said...

I love it. What a great contest. :-) I follow you my friend, though my face isn't on the sidebar. So that means you have more than one hundred followers. How cool is that?

Janna Qualman said...

Fun! You'll hit it today, I betcha.

Debbie said...

I tried to follow again but it is just like that voting all. All these darn rules.

Terri Tiffany said...

What a great post with some cool words! Just reading it was an exercize in my mouth! Hope you get it soon!

Welcome, in advance, to #100. Come on, don't be shy. Angie won't bite you, at least I don't think she will. She will make you laugh, however, and smile and be generally all-around happy. So, if that's for you, climb on board the Gumbo Writer train - woo! woo!

Literary Nut said...

Yep, you'll definitely hit 100 soon! Congrats in advance!! Hope you have a great day today!

You are too absolutely funny! Good luck with the contest!

Chris R. said...

Way to go! I wish I hadn't signed up a couple of weeks ago so I could sign up and enjoy the thrill the chase all over again.

Good luck!

Y'all make me smile, Jessica & Janna. Love both your blogs.

Glad to make your mouth happy, Terri!
