Hoorah! Today I logged in to The World from My Window to find I now have 800 followers. It's a great feeling, believe me. To think someone might be reading this, even if they're not. And to know that people land on this page - by choice - from all over the world. Now that is amazing.
Several new followers have asked me how they, too, can become a Blogger of Note. Well, for the record, I did not sleep with the entire Blogger team, nor did any money change hands.
It came out of the blue, it really did, and the only advice I can give you is to keep on blogging. Write regularly and make it personal and interesting, with photos too if you have them.
Oh, and it helps if you try out new Blogger features and include web links. My accolade came not long after I started using the new Blogger template, so how ever much I like to think it's the quality of my sparkling prose what done it, it's more to do with playing the game.
Anyway, my Greek road trip continues at The World from my Porthole where Mr Grigg and I will be swapping tyres for sails on Sunday.
That's about it.
