O.K. I only mention this because I noticed a change on my blog page.
On the right side bar, I have a box where readers can click and become a follower of my blog. I recently added the widget back to my blog because I saw that I had acquired several followers and wanted to encourage others to do the same. You see, my readers inspire me to keep blogging and get better at it. Letting me know you are a reader by becoming a follower is a really nice way to give me a pat on my virtual back and say, "Good job."
So here is that thing. I used to have 13 followers, but recently that number went down to 12. I know there are all sorts of superstitions around the number 13, so in my head I am thinking that someone didn't want me to have bad luck with 13 followers.
Just so you know, the number 13 doesn't really phase me. Sure, I was diagnosed with cancer on the 13th, but I also found out I was in remission on the 13th. So in the end, it all balances out for me.
So today I am asking my readers to be bold and become my 13th (14th, 15th, 16th...) blog follower. I dare you to click the button. Follow my blog and show me you care. I wish I could offer you a prize or something ... is my undying gratitude enough?
And while you are at it, if you are on Facebook, check out Networked Blogs and follow OMA&P! there too.
Thanks for reading Oh My Aches and Pains!
