As my fellow bloggers can relate, it’s always nice to realize that you have readers — all three or four of you .. that’s right, you .. I love you all.
When I started this blog, it was a total secret. I wanted to try it out before I shouted it from the rooftops. Then I slowly started to leak the URL to family and friends. Eventually I posted the site on my Facebook page; added a twitter feed. And just the other day, I started calling myself by my real first name.
I’m always pleasantly surprised when I see comments from newcomers, and I get especially excited when I see names repeat — regular readers! In fact, in less than three months and 135 posts later, like a hamster on a wheel has hosted almost 3,000 unique visitors! Can you believe that?
Recently, I was out to dinner with lovely friends A, T and J, when T asked, “What did you do this weekend?” And before I could really answer, she pointed out, “because you didn’t post any new blogs.” I was pleasantly surprised to find that she’s a regular reader! And when T and I start to talk about recent posts, A promptly covers her ears, for fear we’ll spoil it before she has a chance to make her daily visit to the blog before bed.
Or like last week, when sister-in-law C gave me a huge grin, held up her purse, and said, “Look!”
I cocked my eyebrow at her … “What?”
“It’s last year’s summer purse!”
Incase you’re new here, I recently wrote a post about re-using last year’s summer purse, in an attempt to be financially responsible, instead of buying a new one.
How fun is that?! I’ve paid it forward!
So here’s the unique part of this post. It’s your turn! I want to know what you think — what would you like to read more of? I know this blog is a pretty random hodge podge of ideas, but if there’s one topic that stands out, let me know. Got a question for me? Fire away!
Thanks for stopping by!
