Would you give me this free birthday gift?

Posted by on Mar 30, 2011 in personal | 13 comments

So, today is my birthday. It is my forty-fourth birthday to be exact. The number looks bigger when I spell it out.

A friend of mine said a few moments ago, “Wouldn’t it be great if you had the most hits ever on your blog on your birthday?”

I said, “Yeah. That would be a pretty good birthday present. But, the day is already more than half over. I should have started that earlier in the day.”

But, he persuaded me, so here I am asking my readers… would you give me this birthday present? Would you help me get the most hits ever on my blog today (for my birthday) by choosing a blog post and putting it on facebook or twitter and encouraging your friends to check out my blog?

If you don’t know what to link to, here are a few oldies-but-goodies that you may not have read:

God loves you

Won’t get fooled again

A Cup o’ Joe or a Cup with Joe

Thanks for helping me with this birthday gift. (By the way, if you take part, please let me know so that I can thank you personally.)

    Happy Birthday. I liked your ‘Community Ingredients: Only Jesus’ post, so yes I’d be happy to share that. That was an easy gift to give. Sharing what you shared with us. 🙂 No need to thank us. Thank you!

    Happy Birthday a day late! I didn’t check my Google Reader all day, and only got to this post today. Sorry about that. Otherwise, I would have loved to have helped out.
