A shout out


A goal I had when starting this blog was to reach 100 followers. Because I have been blogging for a few years with no more than maybe 5-10 (though I was very off-and-on about it), I felt that this was going to be a difficult feat.

However, there are now 92 of you on GFC, and I can't believe I've gotten so close so quickly. You guys are awesome! I hope to eventually make it much further than I ever anticipated, and to meet more of you awesome bloggers in the process.

As far as comments go, everything’s been pretty fair, though I haven't had a ton of return visitors. Unless most of you are lurkers; it’s okay, I’m pretty bad about that myself sometimes. But since I have seen a few of your names more than once, I’d like to point out that it hasn’t gone unnoticed.

So here’s a huge thank you to:
Kathy at My dishwasher's possessed!
Steph from Our Journey
And Jen, who writes A book, a girl, a journey!

I'm also going to mention Terri, Tracy, and MelissaAggie98 for actually commenting more than once, and saying something other than what's sort of come to be an obligation when you first follow a blog. You know what I’m talking about - "I found you [here]...following! Visit me back." But most of them never return and then that's all I have of them. So you guys rock for doing more than that!

This isn't to say that I don't appreciate the rest of you; I just wanted to let these bloggers know that they really stood out to me. To everyone else, I'm loving your blogs...and I'm sorry if I'm a lurker.

Just keep being awesome, all of you.

PS: Sorry I've been changing my blog so much. I have a lot of time on my hands right now, nothing to do, and a perfectionist personality...and I just can't decide I like anything. I'm not going to say it won't happen again any time soon, because I'd probably be a liar. Also, this blog is still new - that's a good excuse right? Bear with me!


  1. I hate when people leave those comments. Especially when they say, "i'm following you, share the love...?"


    I always wonder what they are blogging for.

  2. Right? I kind of feel like a jerk, but I don't even give them a comment back most the time. That, or they're given no more than they gave me.

  3. I love when they do that on an inappropriate post, like I just poured my heart out on and am half sick and I get a "Cute Blog! Following, follow me back!" Are they serious?

    I only follow blogs I like. I didn't know there was a rule that I have to follow someone just because they are following me. I'm out of the loop. lol

  4. I always try to leave a meaningful comment becuase why am I doing this if I don't like to read what other people are writing! I have never been into the "I'm following you now follow me" comment. I would rather have 10 great followers that coment and really want to be at my site than 1000 who only drop by once. Thanks for the shout out, so sweet of you! I do enjoy your blog, that is why I visit! I love this design, very cute! Have a great day!

  5. Wahoo! Thanks for the shout-out! I really like your blog :)

  6. No apologies for changing your blog... that's the fun of it! And I'm totally guilty of being a lurker on so many blogs and now I'll add yours to the list too! ;)
    Following you back now!
    Thanks for hopping with us at Mom Blog Monday!

  7. awwwwwww. thank you! :)

    as for changing the blog, i change mine ALL the time. from one perfectionist to the other, it is TOTALLY okay.

  8. Thanks for the shout out as I come back to visit via NOBH! Thanks so much for linking up again to NOBH! I co-host NOBH with the 5 other ladies because we wanted to encourage bloggers to get to know others (as best you can in blog land) by really reading the posts that so many work hard on and leave relevant comments. I know when I first started blogging a year ago, I left quick comments about I follow you, you follow me, but since NOBH I've been more aware of encouraging bloggers through relevant comments. It's great to read posts and leave comments that affirm the post's messages :)

  9. Hi, your newest follower here...number 94 8) Thanks for linking up this great post to NOBH! Welcome!

  10. Your blog is so cute and I love the design!
    The make sure to follow me backs will always be there, but they eventually die down and you stop seeing as many!! You are almost to 100, it is such a great accomplishment and feeling when you come and see GFC past 100!

    Good luck with your blogging!

    So beautiful! You are a gorgeous writer!
