Goals and Following


OHMYGOODNESS - we are up to FIVE Followers. Yeah, I know the Evil Voice in my head is saying - Come on Patti 5 is kinda Lame isn't it? I mean other cake blogs have THOUSANDS - Geez O Bakerella has HUNDREDS of thousands!! You have 5.....and no matter how cool those 5 followers may be - 4 of them are directly related to you in some fashion. So don't get all geek'd out excited.

Maybe that is True I tell the Evil Voice in my head - but I have FIVE people who are remotely interested in actually seeing what I put up.........enough that they have clicked a button to follow it!! And that is the Beginning of the Positive End you Evil Voice in my head. I mean today 5 - four months from now maybe 7 - and then so on and so on and so on. Shoot - Mrs. Burns just pointed out that I have a typo on my Ipsy Bipsy Cake Shop card. Maybe once that is corrected (takes a teacher to notice a spelling error right? Because my IT husband who was hired to do the spell checking - he get free muffins (pun intended) - wasn't able to see it)the Cake Blog World Will Be Mine!!!

Now imagine my excitement when the Blog Reaches 10!! Shoot at 10 followers I think I will ask for EVERYONES address and send them cookies. Let's plan for that - what kind of cookie cutter shall we make the cookies in? What is a sign of success? Shamrock is luck......I cataloged my cookie cutters (yes I am a dork - I told you all this a million blogs ago) and it seems I have almost 200 cookie cutters - this is counting the tiny ones. So give me some suggestions of what shape these cookies should be in as a sign of reaching a goal.

Speaking of Goals........I have made enough profit off of cakes for friends that I bought my son a new mattress!! Okay I have bought other things too - like the payment of bills, but that is not nearly as exciting as a mattress right? Oh, it is? A mattress is kinda lame too? Hush Evil Voice - no one invited you here. Well I have also purchased a bunch of new bakery tools too. I could list them, but it would bore most of you to unfollow me - and that is working against the goal. Since we are Goal Oriented here let's not do that.

So in conclusion (because that sounds smart)......10 Followers and then Cookies.

Stars--they should be stars because you're a star ;). Actually, I'll take whatever I can get--yum!

You are getting closer to that 10 mark... I am "officially" following you now, too!! :)

If I check the site (nearly) daily, doesn't that count as following??

MJ: No, you have to click on the Follow. Lots more people are probably reading it, in fact I sometimes share on my FB page so I'm sure my friends are sometimes reading. I think it is the difference between just reading someone and "wanting" to read all new items. Following is more committed.

HP:
Don't feel bad, I have only 11 and 3 are related. It does make you feel sort of good to have followers.

Kathy I didn't realize you had a blog - I will find it now. MJ...I would send you cookies anyway and you know it - but following is fun! And you are all a hoot - we are at 8! And although I am still very close to 7 of you it is Super Fun!

You made your 10!!!!!!!!!!!!! SO.. . . Where are those Cookies? ( LOL )

ok, got it now, but I never look at my gmail account, so I'm not sure what the difference will be. Oh well, I have added to my dear friend's numbers and that's what counts.
