Tooting My Horn Tuesday on Winning Followers = Savvy

I’m a winner!

Last month, in an effort to increase her followers, my writer friend, Gail, sponsored a giveaway contest. Her goal was to make it to 50 followers, which she did, and then some! And because she was giddy with success, she gave away a few more prizes than she’d planned. So guess who won a book and chocolate?

I won the award-winning book, Savvy, by Ingrid Law. I’ve already read Savvy, but I’ll be feasting on this wonderful juvenile read again. Because reading good books makes good writers. And giving away good books (and don’t forget the chocolate!) makes gaining followers a snap (and Gail a savvy blogger!).

Hmmm. I’m not sure whether I’m tooting my horn for me, Gail and her successful giveaway, or Ingrid Law’s book, Savvy. I guess I sort of threw in a toot for us all. And while I’m at it, I’ll throw in a toot for my dad, the Birthday Boy.

He’s 87 years old today. Wow. That can’t be right…’cause if he’s 87, then I must be, um, getting back to work. Those contest giveaways aren’t going to win themselves.
