You Like Me! You Really Like Me!

Yes, the title for this post is a bit dramatic, but I’m so excited to see that I have my first 20 followers!! I don’t know why, but that number always seemed like a milestone to me. And they’re not just family either; most of them are people I don’t even know! Heck, I even noticed that I’m on a couple of people’s blogrolls (meaning I’m one of the blogs that the person reads regularly, and there’s a link on their blog to mine) which is also very cool!

When I started blogging (just a month ago on March 16), I didn’t tell anybody for the first couple of weeks because I didn’t know if I’d keep it up. And then I was embarrassed to say anything because I didn’t think people would even be interested in reading it…I mean let’s face it, I don’t lead the most exciting life! So to have people that I don’t even know – who keep coming back – to read what I write (and even comment on it!), well it’s flattering and exciting. And it totally made my day!

So thank you for listening to my rantings and my raves. Starting this blog has been a great way to document my life, the growth and development of my children, and a way to keep family and friends in the loop on our day-to-day lives. It’s been something I’ve always thought about doing, but was too shy and afraid to do it. It’s been so much fun, and I’ve met some great people already.

Also, if you read my blog regularly (Mom!)…please become a follower! On the left hand side towards the top of my blog, click on the Google “Follow” button. I’ve had some non-blogging family and friends ask if it’s okay for them to share my blog with their family and friends…absolutely! I would be honored if my blog touched something in you enough that you wanted to share it with someone else. Feel free to share my blog with anybody that you think might get a kick out of the chaos I call my life!

I’m going to be making some changes today (hopefully I’ll find some time), so if you swing by tomorrow and it looks different, it’s still me!

And so it goes…

    You can make that 21 followers. :)
  2. so glad you're enjoying blogging! it's such a great point of connection...being online makes the world a much smaller place, in a great way :)
  3. Great blog! I see you have Stat Counter on your blog, I do too but have it hidden. Just wondering if you like it. When I first started blogging in January I went to my statcounter umpteen times a day and it made me crazy. Now I check it out once a week or so, just to see who is visiting and how sticky I am.
  4. I felt the same way when I started blogging, who would want to read about my boring life...But it's nice to have a community of other women and moms! Can't wait to see the new look.

    Congrats! :)

    It's tough being a newbie, isn't it? I'm with you . . . started at the end of January, I think. There's so much to learn, and it can be terribly time-consuming. But great fun too!

    Best of luck as you learn and grow!
  7. Thanks for the comment on my blog! I agree, sisters are the best. I can not imagine life without mine.

    Congrats on your first 20 (I see it's 25 now!) followers. i've been blogging for almost two years and only have 36. You're way ahead of me! : )

    I feel the same way! I haven't told anyone in real life about it besides my husband. Too chicken!
  9. Yay for you! Now you are almost at 30! For wanting to keep your blog a secret, you sure have been vocal about it. I think I'm ready to more global now too. :)

    I love you calling your mom out. I know at least 10 people that read my blog regularly that aren't official followers yet.
  10. I have felt exactly the same way. I started my blog as a secret and am still touched and amazed when I get new followers. I don't have a blog roll on my site but I do have a place to list people's buttons. If you get a button, I would love to display it.
    Your girls are super close to my boy's age. Mine were born August 19th, so they are 8 months old today. I loved reading their milestones. It gives me an idea of if my boys are on schedule or not since they were 6 weeks early.
    Keep up the good work. Before you know it, you'll be at 100 followers!
