My readership has really taken off this year. Just this month, I reached the 40,000 pageviews mark. I consistently get comments on most every post (there are some really wonderful people who always leave a comment! I love it!) Linda's Lens has grown to 50 followers on Google Friend Connect, and 36 on my new Facebook page. Small potatoes compared to some blogs, but I'm absolutely thrilled!
To thank all you readers who faithfully follow and comment, I'm sponsoring my first-ever giveaway. For family Christmas presents this year, I printed up calendars featuring my favorite photographs from my blog over the past year. I happen to have an extra calendar, that I'd like to give to one lucky reader.
To be eligible to win this fine calendar, you must do the following:
1. If you don't already, sign up to follow my blog, either on Google Friend Connect or Facebook. There are buttons my blog's sidebar to assist you with this process.
2. Leave a comment on this post or the Linda's Lens Facebook page. What's your favorite Linda's Lens photo/blog post from 2012?
All comments must be received by 5 pm PST Sunday, December 30th, 2012. The winner will be determined by random drawing. I'll announce the lucky person's name on December 31st.
Due to large amounts of spam I kept getting this past fall, I've changed my blog settings so that only registered users can comment. Hopefully this won't hinder anyone, but if you have troubles commenting or getting registered, please email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Again, thanks so much to all of you for reading, commenting, and taking interest in my stories. Merry Christmas to you all! And stay tuned for my annual year-end recap "2012 in Photos" post coming your way on December 31st.
