Last week the Cozy Chicks held a bit of a contest. It was our 2000th blog post and we asked readers to chime in with what they liked about the blog, and how long they'd been reading. In a totally random drawing the winners were:
But more than just giving out Goody Bags of bookmarks, postcards, and buttons, we were the winners of lovely notes from our readers, and from all over the world. Here are a brief sample.
From Terri from South Africa: "What I like best about your blog is that it is a collective representation of such a diverse genre of cozy mysteries - you all have such interesting lives, and everyday I get to live vicariously on a different continent through your blog posts."
Barbara from New York, NY: "Congratulations on the 2000th blog. I am 75 years old and have read most of your books, especially those which take place in knitting stores and/or include recipes and instructions for knitting patterns. I've just gotten over pneumonia and your books have given me much pleasure and keep my mind from atrophying as I try to find out who done it."
Nicole from Haywood, Manitoba, Canada: "I was beyond excited to find a web site that included so many of my favorite authors and especially appreciate the interactions we, as your fans, can participate in. It humbles me that you take the time to read my , at times, crazy comments and still have time to create such captivating books."
"And what happens when we write on the blog is that we end up supporting one another! We're total strangers and yet through that act of responding to your suggestions, questions, concerns, we become bonded on a particular issue. I think that's what I love most about the Cozy Chicks Blog: it's humanity. Thank you all for being willing to share parts of yourselves with your devoted readers."
And now we'd like to thank you for joining us every day of the week.
Thank you, dear readers. We love you.
