I Love Meeting New Friends

My love affair with blogging continues .  The other day I hit a highest ever number of viewers for my post.  I got 139 views which is nearly a 12% increase over my previous highest ever.  (Did I actually just calculate the percent of increase?  Boy!  I’d better get outside and do something not involving a computer screen.  I don’t wanna turn into a geek!)

But that wasn’t all that happened that day.  I also got my highest number of “likes” and my highest by far number of comments and I got more followers, too.  Don’t worry–I didn’t calculate any more percentages.  Yet.

And that map they give you on the stats page?  Love, love, love it! I have traveled but I’m not what you would call a “world traveler.”  I am fascinated when I see there are people from Bosnia, Japan, Serbia–really?  Serbia?–who are clicking their mouses to read my words.  That map the other day had a long list of nations colored in.  I think it’s fair to say I’ve gone International!

That is fantastic!  I love getting comments!  I love “meeting” and “talking” to new friends and I found a bunch more bloggers that I want to follow too.  In fact, I visited many of you that same day.  Thank you so very much for taking the time to stroll over to my blog and stay a while.  Thank you for taking the time to say something and help make the post much more interesting than if it was just me talking.

I love that blogging brings us together no matter where we live and what else is going on in our lives!  Blogging cuts through a lot of complications and barriers and lets us simply communicate and be heard, even around the world.

This is very encouraging!

  1. Smiling at your bloggy enthusiasm. It can be so addicting, can’t it? We can get so passionate about it. Enjoy the ride…you’ve got a great blog here, Patty.

  2. But how do I keep up with it?
    I’m new to this and as much as I love it I’m finding it overwhelming because I have started following some rather interesting blogs and just can’t read them every day or even post to my own. Sigh….. just trying to figure out how to balance this with everything else and not feel I have to give it up….I love it so.
