This week I'm celebrating learning to swim with the fishes on Twitter. I'm not as intimidated as I was last week. After all, there's no real reason to worry about posting something dumb or messing up a re-tweet. It's not brain surgery. Everyone will live through it. And I've gotten over 600 followers so far. Yay me!
On the bad side, I've gotten a lot of followers for the Celebrate Hop this week, too -- but not real followers. They're horrible spammers who've been posting 30-50 links a day in the Linky. All to dirty pages in Vietnam and Indonesia. I have to go every day to the master Linky list and delete them -- but more pop up the following day.
BEWARE - The last true Celebrate link is #57 "Carole Ann Carr." If there are links after that - they are fake names and will take you to places you don't want to go. Sorry about this. There's no way to block who signs up on the Linky. I just have to keep deleting and hope they eventually get tired of posting.
Ever have a problem with Spammers on your blog or email? It should really be a punishable crime, right?
My kind and wonderful co-hosts of Celebrate the Small Things are:

Celebrate the Small Things. To be part of this blog hop, all you have to do is put your name on the linky list on Lexa's Blog, and then post every Friday about something you're grateful for that week. It can be about writing or family or school or general life. This is the funnest and easiest blog hop ever! (Originated by VikLit)
