Followers Celebration

So, I'm doing the total cop-out with the contest idea. I've got too much going on right now (death in the family) and my heart's not in it. But I can't just let this momentous numerical magic go unnoticed, so I made some little signs you are free to partake of and put in sidebars... or completely ignore. I was going to make an 'award' but I'm still reeling from the last one that was half-success/half-failure. This time, these are simply a gift from me to you: my awesome peeps. Take one. Take all five. Take none. Up to you.


My first impulse was to show my enormous love for my followers, so I made this one:

but that seemed a bit boastful.

I decided to go with something far more believable:

but I worried it might set a precedent. I can't afford a thousand followers, after all.

This led me to think I should try something more subtle:

Truer words were never written. You're a writer, and that's incredibly sexy. Boy, girl, hey... I'm not picky.

After looking at these three beauties, I thought to myself, "Well, self, you sure are making this all about YOU, aren't you?" So, I decided to try something more universal among all writers:

To write is to be insane, yes? No? Oh... um. Just ignore this one then.

Although I'm still slapping my own knee at how terribly clever I am, I thought the above might not ring as true to the rest of you as it does me, so I tried a more simple approach. IN BRILLIANT COLOR!!! *AH MY EYES!!!* I forbid anyone to sue me if they get eye strain:

'Insanity is the new black'. Love it!

Priceless. My kinda humour :)

Terry Towery said...

So, um, may I borrow the "Christi thinks I'm sexy" one?

Unknown said...

I'm sorry to hear about your loss, Christi. Take care! Heh, cute badges :)

Christi Goddard said...

Wendy: Thanks. We need t-shirts.

Terry: Borrow? No, baby, that's all yours. Keep it.

Stephanie: Thanks a bunch. It was the sister of my step mother whom I never met, but she is taking it hard so I've been with her a lot, and loads of phone time, etc. I feel so bad for her. They were very close.

Mel Chesley said...

I want the insanity one! Muahahahahaha! Thanks.
Sorry to hear about the passing of your family member. Hang in there, kid.

Anne Gallagher said...

Hey I'm sorry about what's going on. The awards are great though. I hope everything gets back to normal for you soon.

Kelly@ JustWrite said...

Great awards, you really are very clever! Just put my check in the mail when you get a chance! ;)

Hang in there, sorry for all you've got going on.

Jemi Fraser said...

So sorry to hear of the death in your family -take time to be with your step-mom and the rest of the family.

Insanity is the new black is my favourite new line :)

Christi Goddard said...

Lass: Take it, chickadee. Use is wisely.

Anne: Thanks. I've been waiting for normal for years, though...

Kelly: Absolutely. No need to send the address. I already know where you live.

Jemi: Oooh... I contributed to someone's favorite something. I'm all chills now!

Tara said...

How did you get a picture of my brain? Love the Writer Zone :)

Sorry for your family's recent loss.

JE said...

I totally love the "Christi loves me more than you" one. Can I steal it and put it one my blog? They're all awesome, of course.


Aubrie said...

I'm sorry to hear about your loss. Those are great badges.

Mia Hayson said...

OOOh, I'm torn between "Christi thinks I'm sexy" and "Insanity is the new black".... If you let me put one of them on my blog I promise I won't accidentally call you Christ again :P Unless that is your real name...? Also, I think you just know I would LOVE a T-shirt with one of these slogans on.

*hugs* Sorry to hear about your loss and I hope things start looking up soon.

Anonymous said...

I love them all! I think it's a great way to celebrate.

So sorry to hear about the loss in your family. I hope you start feeling better soon.

Unspoken said...

They are blank :(. Have no idea what is is in them...

Charity Bradford said...

Christi, sorry about your loss. Way to keep moving forward with all these awesome badges. I like the insanity and the writer's zone. Is that a shout out for the butterfly effect (the idea, not the movie)? If not, that's what it reminded me of and I thought, cool. :)

Christi Goddard said...

Tara: I have my ways.

Justine: You can have any or all. Help yourself.

Aubrie: Thanks. When I can't write, I play with my artsy stuffs.

Mia: You're welcome to both, and t-shirts would rock.

E. Elle: I'm glad you liked them.

She Writes: I sorry. Refresh?

Charity: The entire image is actually a cyclone of airplanes zooming out from the middle with a butterfly in the middle. It's a remark on how butterflies still do it (fly, not have sex) better than humans do. :-)

Lola Sharp said...

I'm sorry about your loss.

Love the badges...insanity is the new black is full of win and awesome.

Christi Goddard said...

Thankya, Lola. I'm glad you liked it. I'm thinking of having a shirt made now.

Unspoken said...

Considering my recent posts Insanity is the new black is my fave! Blogger was off yesterday.

Unspoken said...

Ooops- Insanity It's the new black, that is!

Tahereh said...

ohhhhhh bestie... i hope all is well with you :(

perhaps this might help? i left you an award on my bloggie.

lots of love!!

Julie Dao said...

Sorry about the family stuff :( Hope you're okay and thanks for thinking of us with all of these great badges. Take care!

Matthew MacNish said...

So sorry for your loss Christi, you will be in all our prayers.

Congratulations on your followers they really seem to be blowing up - the number of them, not the actual followers.

I like your little badges, I would take and use one if I had any idea how to do such things to my blog.

Christine Danek said...

So sorry for your loss, I'll be thinking of you.
Congrats on the followers and love the badges --all of them. The insanity one fits my life right now. :)
Take Care.

Christi Goddard said...

Thank you guys so much, you're so awesome. The badges are free to everyone (except Lucy. She'll have to pay for hers).

It seems Insanity rules the post. Which is like pretty much any other post I have...

Oh, the irony.
