Follow Fest - Day 1

Welcome to Follow Fest! 
Today is Day 1 of a 5-day blogfest. If you haven't signed up yet, there's still time. :)

Each day, I'm going to post the Linky list for the current day and any previous days. Need to sign up for a day not shown? No problem! 
All the Linky lists are available on the Follow Fest information page. Just click, scroll down, and sign up.

Now on to the fun...

Let's all give a running high five to Carrie Butler.
To celebrate the opening of her new business...

 
...she's sponsoring the grand prizea coupon good for $30 toward her services.


How cool is that? Thanks Carrie!

To show my appreciation for all of you taking part in the blogfest, I'm throwing in a $15 gift card to your choice of Amazon or Barnes & Noble.


(International entrants welcome)
