Every day I look at the numbers at the side of my screen to see how many followers I have; and for a pretty long time now, those numbers haven't changed. I see ten followers through Google and 67 through NetworkedBlogs, and I'll be honest, I guess I really hoped that somewhere along the way, I would have picked up more; just like Julie did in "Julie and Julia."
I know that on a couple of occasions I've asked for your help before, as increasing my readership has always been one of my goals; but sadly, it just hasn't happened. So, at the risk of seeming pushy, I'm gonna ask just one more time; since I'm nearing the end of my 366 day commitment and it's more important to me than ever that more people read my blog. Think of it as an early birthday present for me if you will. If each person that follows "The Bumpy Ride", could recommend it to a couple of friends that they think might enjoy it, and if even just one of those friends signs up to follow this blog, then I could actually double my followers. Heck, I'd just settle for making it to 100 followers by my birthday.
Making this plea, somehow reminds me of the Tony Orlando and Dawn song "Tie A Yellow Ribbon Round the Old Oak Tree." If you're familiar with the song, and you've been a rider long enough, that MAY just make some sense to you, but if you've never heard the song (it's an oldie but a goodie, so take a listen.) With that being said, if you know anyone that you think might get a laugh from my nonsense or may be interested in my suggestions for the (say it with me) "GREATER good", then I urge you to share "The Bumpy Ride" with them, and encourage them to sign up to follow either through Google or Networkedblogs (on Facebook.) If you yourself are a regular rider but you've never signed up to "follow" then I implore you to do so now, just so I will know that you're really out there.
Till next time...
