Getting Ready for 5-0-0-0!

Our Shrinking Violet Promotions blog site is just about ready to receive it's 5000th visitor! Hoo-yah! Robin and I are all a'flutter. It has been such a fun few months here with all of you. We've been having an absolute blast.

Since we can't actually "see" who the 5000th visitor will be, but we want to celebrate it all the same, here's what we're going to do. The first three visitors that wish the site a Happy 5000! after the meter rolls over will win a Shrinking Violet mug. You can watch the visit meter at the bottom of the site.

We want to thank each of you for dropping by these last few months, for your great comments,, and insights, and for sending your friends our way.

So, watch that meter, and good luck! And, have a safe and festive 4th--

Cheers, friends!

Happy 5000! I love this blog. I feel like I finally found a bunch of people who really understand us introverts.

My name is Rick Humphreys. I am the husband of Stephanie Humphreys, who won one of your mugs during the 5,000 visitor promotion. She loves her mug.

Stephanie is a writer and has just finished her first novel and is preparing it to send to publishers. We are very proud of her.

Stephanie's blog is shumphreys.blogspot.com

A week or so ago, I was fiddling around with an anagram generator program. In case you are not aware, anagrams are re-arrangement of all the letters in words or phrases into new words/phrases, using every letter once.

I entered "Stephanie Humphreys" and it immediately spit out the following statement: "I am the shy penpusher".

I couldn't believe it! How appropriate.

Though you'd get a kick out of it.

That is TOO funny about Stephanie's anagram! Who knew the program was psychic?

A good example of how one can't escape one's true nature. ;-)
