200 Followers Make My Heart Smile (and Some Updates)

Hi everyone!

The blog has just hit 200 followers and over 22,000 views. I am just super excited about that! I can't believe that this many people actually like my blog enough to add it to their blog list. Thank you all so, so much!!

To celebrate, here's one of my favorite songs EVER. It doesn't really matter where I am, or who I am with. As soon as I hear the start of this song, I have to break into a dorky mix of dancing and jumping around with a stupid smile on my face.

David Bowie - Rebel Rebel (A Reality Tour)

I try to follow back as much as I can, but for some reason, I can't always view full profiles from my dashboard. So, if you're a follower and I'm not following you back, please leave your link in a comment for me! :)

I'm also getting close to my one year bloggiversary! That's coming up in a couple of weeks, so look out for my giveaway!! I'm just getting together a few more things and I'll be ready to go!

Finally, here's a picture of my Bowie. I'm not a crazy stalker fan, I promise! I originally wanted a cat or a dog named Ziggy Stardust. When I got him I thought the name was a bit too feminine for him, so we went for Bowie. I then discovered that my cat is actually pretty feminine and Ziggy Stardust would've really suited him, but oh well! Bowie works too :)

Please excuse the messy room! You can read more about Bowie and his story here :)

Thanks again to everyone who reads my blog. I can't tell you how much I appreciate the support. Being able to interact with so many great women who have the same interests (obsessions?) as I do is insane. I've met so many great people and I really do consider a lot of you to be friends. I look forward to meeting as many of you as I can in the future! :)
