Say what?!

Holy cow!!

I just realized that I now have 104 followers! Who are you people and why do you care about my little mundane life?! That’s incredible.

When I started blogging, I had no idea what I was getting into. I thought I’d publish a few posts, then move along. But something amazing happened. I started getting comments from complete strangers. I started seeing visitors coming in from around the world: Australia, Spain, Romania, Japan, India, Germany, Canada, Mexico… I was hooked. I never thought I’d feel such strong feelings of friendship for people I’ve never met in real life.

So thank all of you who take the time to stop by each day and read my random thoughts. If you leave comments, you have no idea how much appreciate your kind words – they get me through the day sometimes! And if you don’t leave comments… well, that’s okay too. But I’d really like to hear from you! Even if it’s just a short hello.

Don’t be a stranger!

I have you on my Google reader - I found your blog after you referenced Sister Hazel a while back and someone posted it on their message board. I enjoy reading your posts, especially your weekly writing assignments :)

I LOVE reading every word you have to share with us Heather! Isn't it amazing the connections we can really make through blogging? It's pretty incredible.

So, here's something fun...have you ever taken the time to go back through old posts to see just where you picked up your followers? It's quite interesting and easy to forget when your numbers start to climb.

Congratulations on that big #!

It always amazes me that people read the meanderings I write. I'm sure you feel the same. Congratulations!

I know how you feel... why do all these people care what I have to say?! But I've met so many great people through blogging.

People love your little mundane life because you are WONDERFUL, silly girl! And the 2 posts previous to this one prove it. My fingers are crossed that Maverick is going to be A-OK, bless his little heart (and bless yours for taking him home with you!). Keep doing what you do, darlin'... we'll keep reading :) XOXO

Diane said...

And no, Sherri, you are NOT her oldest blogger pal... well... maybe in YEARS ;). She's been my bloggy little sister for eons! And you can't have her!

YAY! How good for you!!! It's amazing isn't it? I have only been at it for a bit and have followers-which I never even thought about when I started.

Thanks for stopping by my little bit of the world today!!
