Envy, coveting, greed, and other deadly sins found here!

If I'm going to be using this blog as a Lenten Discipline, then I might as well work on some form of confession.

A few weeks ago, I was perusing my Stats on the blog. (No, this is not the confession.)

I discovered that a reader had found me through this site: Top 50 Blogs in Atlanta, GA -

Go ahead and look.

It's a list of the top 50 blogs that are networked on Facebook. So, of the Facebook blog users, I was the second most popular in Atlanta.

Woo. Hoo.

I should have been thrilled - and really, I am. But I'm so close to being the #1 blog that I can't stop obsessing over this site. I've been as far behind as 20, but then that gap was narrowed to 2 readers. TWO!!

(This is where the confession part comes in.)

I need your help, readers. I need you to click that weird widget thing to the right that says, "Join my Blog Network!" or "Follow Reverend Mama!" I need you to do it because I'm giving up envy and greed for pride. I figure this is a two-for one opportunity. You've been loyal, devoted, kind, and witty. You leave comments and you forward to friends. I love that. I love you. Now, I just need this tiny little favor. I need you to help me triumph over the blog that is not as clever or witty or impishly adorable as Bob Loblaw's Law Blog.

Tobias Fünke: So what are your plans for this evening?
Bob Loblaw: I thought that maybe I would stay in and work on my law blog.
Tobias Fünke: Ah, yes. The "Bob Loblaw Law Blog". You, sir, are a mouthful.

Oh, how I miss that show...

I'm now an official follower. Not sure how I feel about that. . . But your "2 for 1" argument was very compelling.

My three year old son is actually not the follower, though I'm sure he would read your blog if he could read.

I, personally, choose to believe that George is perusing my blog while Lena preoccupies you with her tiny demands. Thank you both for reading! :-)

HEY!!! Readers!!!! You all completely, totally RULE!

Since posting this, I've launched to 4 readers ahead of LawBlog. I have traded in my envy, greed, and covetousness and for pride and a hint of gluttony. I can't get enough of your affirmation and support. Thank you so, so much.
