Looking Ahead

I just noticed my one year blogiversary is coming up in two weeks and in honor of this spectacular milestone there will be a giveaway!
Keep on coming back.
I've been feeling a little crotchety lately.
It seems, according to my sitemeter, that I have approximately
174 page views per day.
Then why are only like 2 or 3 people commenting?
I don't want to be a whiner (I put up with enough of that throughout the day) but why oh why aren't there more commenters out there?
Why why why? (Okay I am whining.)
I've heard the excuse "well I don't have anything witty to say."
Um, I don't care, just say "hey I'm here and I'm reading this."
or
"I really think you're the most fabulous mom
and the most talented crafter I've ever seen
and I would lay down and die if I didn't have your blog to look forward to every day."
I mean something like that.

Hey Jill. I really think you're the most fabulous mom
and the most talented crafter I've ever seen
and I would lay down and die if I didn't have your blog to look forward to every day.

I do check your blog each day just to see what wonderful things you have come up with!!!

Sara said...

I read! I read! Yes, I'm guilty of not commenting much (looks at shoes in shame). Know that you are loved! I crack up at your "Brooklyn/Porter says" posts. I too, wonder where my comments are...but then again, you have more followers than I do....great, now I'm feeling crotchety!

MiMi said...

This is GREAT! You're too funny and you are right! I think is someone views our pages, they should get a little teeny shock if they don't comment! It might sound mean, but we NEED comments. Hello? That's why we blog, right?
You are hilarious, and I wanna know what you're giving away cause I WANT IT I WANT IT I WANT IT. I don't care what it is, you have great stuff! : )

Seriously - I follow your blog like a fellow Willamette Valley resident should stalkerishly follow someone they know sort of and used to go to school with their husbands brothers - Yup, I've got your back girl - Love all of the "Porter/Brooklyn says" blogs for sure!

If I have anything to say about your blog I can usually tell you at work! But you are a awesome crafter and you have a very good vision for turning junk into treasure.

I love your blog and I will keep coming back! I love, love, love a good contest. (Hey, can you throw in a Starbucks card?)

Oh, and BTW, I love comments, too! I smile really big when I get a comment from my fabulous blogger friend Jill.

The Fun Fair said...

So I do read your blog everyday! I have you bookmarked even. And the days you don't post, I am super...well...let down. But hey, absolutely NO PRESSURE!

The Fun Fair said...

Ok one more thing...has it really been a year since I started reading this?! Ok, I'm starting to feel like I need a hobby...well a second hobby since my first hobby is stalking you!

Debbie @ The Shabby Bungalow said...

Hello - thought I had to comment - I read your blog through bloglines and I don't comment because I look at so many blogs a day! LOL I very rarely get comments on my blog and I know plenty of people are reading it. My hubby can't understand why there are never any comments to read but I told him we are all too busy blog hopping to leave comments. Anyway just so you know - I love your blog :) Debbie
