I've just finished Winging My Way Around the World! This was the first time I had heard about Lisa's wonderful event. She had 876 participants this year and what an Event it was. I hopped around to meet as many of the bloggers that I could. I might not have left a comment everywhere but I had a wonderful time reading about all of the many bloggers who joined in. For me it wasn't about the giveaways....it was about seeing what made each one of us unique.
I was completely shocked that I had over 300 bloggers leave a comment on my post. I think the closer to the front of the list you are the more bloggers stop by. I was fortunate enough to be #39 but some of the first few on the list had 500+ comments. Amazing! I received so many wonderful messages from people from all over the world that I felt like my one little pair of Very Cherry earrings wasn't adequate for all the people who had stopped by. So I added a pair of Victorian Flowers earrings after I passed 200 comments with the idea that if I hit 300 comments I would add yet a third pair of earrings. Well on the last day I reach #300 so I added another pair of Very Cherry earrings to the giveaway since they seemed so popular. In addition to all the thoughtful comments I had over 20 new "Peeps" become followers of my blog. I am truly humbled and excited to have so many new friends.
Just in case you missed the pictures from my original post here they are again.
