One More Day

The blog fest is up to 175 people! I'm sure Alex hosts things with more blogs than that all the time, but I never do blogfests, so I'm a amazed, and maybe, just a little, overwhelmed.

It would be cool to see the list reach 200 blogs, but I think we're approaching saturation levels, so I don't think that's likely. I've got a lot of writing and critiquing to get done today, so I'm just going to say:

Thanks everyone for taking part in this! I really look forward to visiting all your blogs tomorrow and over the weekend, and meeting tons of great new people.

Have a great Thursday! See the post below this one if you have no idea what I'm talking about, or need to sign up on the linky list.

Sounds like fun, I'll see what I can do, but at the very least I'll go play with Mr. Linky and give the blogs a view.

I've only hosted one other blogfest that had more people than that (not counting the A to Z Challenge or the Insecure Writer's Support Group) and we're close to beating that one!

Kristen Pelfrey Faulconer said...

Frikken Brilliant!

Come visit tomorrow, I have Friday's Shoegasm and featured Friday Follower as usual. I wanted to do Fuck you Friday too but I think its a little overkill with the Blogfest happening too.

For one truly horrible moment, I thought it was Friday already. Now I really need a drink!

Hart Johnson said...

Ha! How did I miss this!? Man, I hate how busy I've been. Ah, well... rectified now!

Liz Fichera said...

Hi Matthew, great connecting with you today! And I'll be joining the blogfest tomorrow as well. :)

Carolina Valdez Miller said...

Hey, cool! Congratulations! I hadn't heard of this because my head's in the sand most days, but great job getting such high numbers!

Matthew MacNish said...

Dang. 184 now. That was fast.

Sarah Pearson said...

I just know my blog reading list is going to go up massively. Oh well, who needs sleep? ;-)

Jonathon Arntson said...

Yay!

Pat Hatt said...

Just came up with something for tomorrow's blogfest, so joined up too!

Michael Offutt said...

It's really not all that amazing considering that between the two of you, there are almost 2000 followers. These are like two titans wading through the shoals of Middle Earth asking for people to follow them. The inevitable is inevitable.

Nice! Hope all is well with you.

If I wasn't already invested in other blogfests, I'd totally be down for this one. But thank you for mentioning it. I'll check it out.

I launched a giveaway today! :)

Kristen said...

Ready, set...

Janet Johnson said...

I just upped you to 197. You've almost made it. :)

Kristen Pelfrey Faulconer said...

Well, I am going to post the Linky thing and see what happens. The more the merrier, right?

D.G. Hudson said...

Looking forward to virtually meeting new voices, and seeing new blogs!

I'll have my eye drops, and lots of coffee ready.

Rusty Webb said...

Hey - I'm number 200. I hope in some small way, I helped fulfill your goal there.

LynNerd said...

Okay, I'm all set!

D.G. Hudson said...

I posted a wee bit early(West Coast time), just in case the fog rolls in, the continental plates shift, or my laptop wants to take a hiatus. . .
like it did this morning.

I'll do my intense blog-hopping tomorrow. See you then.

Donna Hole said...

It'll be a blast Matt :)
