3,000: De-lurk

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , — pprscribe @ 12:06 pm

At some point over the last 12 hours or so, somebody made the 3,000th visit to this blog. I do not know who it was. (Hopefully it was not one of my many spammer friends.) But I do thank you, whoever you are.

Also, I thank everyone who has ever dropped by this young blog.

I’ve been blogging long enough (my previous blog dated back to…2005?) to not utter the old line “I blog for myself.” I love the act of writing and posting and the whole creativity of it all. But I would just keep a private journal if all I wanted to do was write for myself. Seeing my little numbers on the stat counter go up at the end of each day is what keeps me typing. So—thank you to you all.

If you are so inclined, please take this as an invitation to de-lurk to just say “hi.”

Also, as I have just updated my blogroll, please feel free to recommend other blogs (including your own) that I’ve missed that you think I might enjoy.



  1. I really like your blog. It’s intimate and delicious.

      I’m a big fan of ladybugs. And I’m a big fan of your blog.

  2. Thanks,—and thanks for being the first respondent! I was starting to feel like a person who invites folks to a party, but then no one shows up. Well, there will at least be plenty of snacks and drinks for you and I if no one else shows… LOL

  3. Thank you, k. emvee! It is a stunning image, isn’t it. I wish I had taken it myself.

  4. Love the ladybug.

    As for comments, I think that sometimes it’s easier for folks to comment on the fluff or funny posts, rather than the posts that are of more substantial stuff! I’ve noticed that when I post about racism on my blog, I’ll often get fewer comments, and a lot of them will just be “good point” or something.

    I bet you get a lot more visitors than commenters – your blog is well written and on point. Plus, great photos.

  5. Thanks, More! I find that, too, about the racism and other “heavy” stuff. On the plus side, I do not have to deal with many of the out-and-out racist comments that some folks have to.
