Comments, Rather Lack Thereof

I know of a few people who read my blog, and I know that more than half a dozen that stop by every once in a while. I know this cause I have something called a hit counter, it counts how many times someone visits my blog. Well the count is now up to 11, 922. I know that every time I look at my own blog (I do this to use the links to friends' blogs) it goes up, so there are probably about 200 or so hits that don't count, but who is everyone else?

I can name a few; Lani, Jami, Gina, Neisha, Shaun, Helen and I recently found out that Bryce was here. Oh, and Janelle, sorry I forgot to list you. Other than that I don't know my other readers.

Granted that sometimes I don't have much to say, and I haven't been real faithful in updating with new posts this summer, but I didn't have any motivation. Why update if no one reads them?

So my point is, COMMENT, say hello, don't be a visitor that lurks silently in the electronic ether. And check in every once in a while, you never know when something exciting might happen!

hi! you guys beat us home! or at least you had less to unload than we did, haha. regarding your question on my blog, jonna does go to school all day, every day, except wed. i'm looking forward to tomorrow when both kids are in school and tyler can help me unpack in peace and quiet. =)

Janelle said...

I'm here!!! I like to check in on you guys now and then...see what's up. I think I comment on your posts....I'll try to do a better job. Keep blogging!! :) I definitely want to be in the know if anything exciting comes up in your life! ;)

I think that is a common blogging frustration. Hit counter was a weird coincidence.

Shannon said...

me! hi! i read you!

Lani said...

I know you already know I read, but thought I'd just drop in and say a cheerful "hi!". Comments are fun.

Nikki said...

OK, I"m guilty of stopping in occasionally but never commenting. I found the link to you through Lani's blog. I dont' think you know me personally, but hubby and I both went to college with Nate. I have a blog that I update very sporadically, feel free to stop by and check out what we're up to if ya want!

Jenny said...

I subscribe to your blog so I always know when you update! And I know how you feel about comments...

Jana said...

SG, we headed straight home and stopped only for fast food and gasoline. I need to unpack too, ugh.

Janelle, sorry I forgot to list you, I will keep you posted on anything exciting.

Shaun, agreed, very weird coincidence.

Hi to you too Shannon, I always enjoy reading about your comical experiences with your kids.

Lani, thanks for saying, "Hi."

Nikki, nice to 'meet' you, I will have to check out your blog.

hi Jana- I get you on google reader, so I doubt it registers on your hit counter (unless I open your page to comment, which I rarely do)- but I like to follow you 'cause I like to keep up with 'my kids'...did you know you're one of them?! ;) It just amazes me so much to see you all now and remember you as 'kids'- not that there's anything to be surprised at- just that it's such a neat thing.

Danica said...

Melanie said...

Hi! I may have commented before... Anyway, once in a while while I'm blog hopping, I see a link to your blog - I know there will always be awesome pictures and creative projects posted. I was excited to see that there's a new little project in the works now - so I'm sure there will be lots more pictures in the future! Congrats!

btw, I'm the Melanie that your cousin Amber hangs out with. :)
