100 followers! Unbelieveable

My morning started out like every other morning.  I made coffee, turned the fire on and I signed on to Blogger like I normally do .... to see what all of you morning people have posted.  I usually enjoy reading your posts while sipping a cup of Italian roast coffee.  I sometimes find interesting posts that make me think, some inspiring photographs, yummy recipes and sometimes a friend in need of a prayer.  Sometimes I have an occasional comment.

I have to apologize to all of you.  I am terrible about taking the time to comment.  I really don't know why.  I read through and have intentions on coming back and posting comments to each of you.  Maybe it is just time consuming, maybe it is because Blogger drives me crazy with pop up blockers and verification codes...who knows or it could be I have a difficult time staying on task.

This morning ... I noticed that I now have 100 followers!  I could not believe it!  How in the HECK did that happen?  I haven't been blogging quite a year, just really started to journal pictures, ideas, feelings etc..and then I found all of you.  Wonderful online friends with great ideas, interesting points of view, support and it really has been fun for me.  I am blown away that anyone finds what I post interesting and that number of 100....just crazy!  I've learned so much from reading about all of you.  Reading about your lives, your hobbies, you loves, you hopes and dreams and your struggles.  I'm just really surprised...pleasantly...that I have so many friends, and a couple awards!  Cool!

Due to life throwing me some really hum dingers (southern saying) lately...I haven't been blogging as much as I would like.  I do read however, almost everyday..twice a day.  Anywhoo....I just wanted to say Thank you to those of you who do read, comment and care.  You mean so much to me.

I wanted to take the time to let you know that....virtual hugs!

  1. Congratulations!!!! It's a great way to wake up! I love hydrangeas and your header is gorgeous!

  2. Carol... in my opinion, you make it easy to read your blog.Your writing is always wonderful... unlike mine, which resembles the paintings of a blind artist... (with all sincere apologies to any blind artists out there).

    Thank YOU!


  3. Hooray for you! When I first started I wanted followers so badly and it seemed to take forever. Then all of a sudden it started happening and it feels so good to see the numbers grow. Congratulations!
