200,000

Quietly, right around New Year's Day, this blog passed the 200,000 visitors mark. Since it began on January 7, 2007, that mile marker is also pretty close to the blog's 4th birthday. Who knew I would keep at it so long, or meet so many good friends along the way?

Thank you to all who have followed along with my daily small adventures, joys, sorrows and musings. I value each and every one of you.

To mark the anniversary, I will send a copy of my poetry chapbook, Lives Unheralded, to five people who respond to this post. Your names will be picked using the random number generator, to keep it fair and square.

Thank you again. And I hope you will continue to visit, read and comment.

This is my River of Stones post for today--a small thing suddenly noticed in my busy day--a tiny number at the bottom of the blog populated by people from all walks of life.

Thank you, Mamabug. I would not have believed that keeping an online journal would be so rewarding.

That's great Susanna! I would love to win your poetry chapbook. It's a coincidence,but I have pulled up some of my poems on the computer this morning and have been working on them.

Congratulations, Granny Sue! Such a milestone :-)

I'd treasure a book of your poems. And remember, your photos are gorgeous too.

Hugs,
Kate

Your blog is one of my escape places, when I need a little peace! :) Don't put me in the drawing...I am already honored to have your poetry book. Love you

Rebecca Clayton said...

I usually read you in my RSS feed, so I'll bet your counter doesn't catch me. Congratulations, and long may you blog!

Granny Kate said...

Too cool! I'm glad I found your blog. It's one of my favorite places to come to, one of my favorite reads.

Martha said...

Congrats! Your blog is one of my few favorites that I read late at night to bring a aura of peace and calm to the end of my day. I look forward to many more days, months, and years of reading this blog.

Granny Sue said...

Thank you all again! It makes me happy to see so many names I know in the comments, as well as some who have been reading but quiet. Let's start another good year together!

I get to read your blog on a more regular basis since I'm in charge of the computers during free time at the Club. I look forward to finish logging everyone in and sitting down, opening your blog and getting a chance to read it. Sometimes competing at home for the computer with 3 other people is hard.

In any case, I thought I said Congrats! at the Club on your 200,000 but I guess I didn't. I'm supposing someone needed help. Congrats on the 200,000 we are very proud of your accomplishment. This will also be a very neat journal for future generations in the family. They will be able to read what their great granny or great great granny, etc... was thinking, what she cooked, how she lived. In the meantime it continues to be a valuable journal for me. I'm constantly using it to find a recipe or a story I can't quite remember right. Congrats Susie!
