A Celebration! 50,000 Visitors to Vintage Vonnie




 
A little over 3 years ago, I attended Virginia's Festival of the Book. I sat in on a workshop about self-promotion. The speaker insisted  having a blog was imperative in reaching readers. Unfortunately, what I knew about blogging you could have fed to a parakeet for lunch. Still, I thought how hard could it be? Right? Obviously I had a lot to learn. My first posts were awkward ramblings. Now, after 3 years, my posts are still ramblings, just a tad less awkward.





I've found I love blogging. What I adore the most are the delightful people I've met along the way.

So, here we are at a milestone: 50,000 visits!

We ought to celebrate, right?

 
Follow my blog, if you don't already, and leave a comment to be eligible for a copy of one of my books. Your choice. I'm chosing 3 winners. One for every year Vintage Vonnie has been in the blog-o-sphere.

My dear Rolynn of the famous Scottisf terrior, thanks for your sweet comments. I was blown away when THOSE VIOLET EYES won first place. I haven't been right since, as you can see!

Jannine Gallant said...

Congrats on your milestone, Vonnie. You always entertain, which is why people keep coming back. I also have to say I'm incredibly impressed by your sidebar list of WIP. 4 at one time? Go get 'em, lady!

Vonnie Davis ~ Romance Author said...

Thanks, Jannine! As for the sidebar WIP's, they are proof positive I must have ADD. LOL Characters come and insist. I start their stories and then add to them when I hit a wall in another project.
