Today I reached over 3,000 hits to my blog since February! When I began blogging in January, I had no clue what I was doing. I was simply responding to the request of a couple friends who wanted me to post my work (and I didn't want to continue to post on facebook ) In February I decided to add a counter. I'm one of those obsessive/compulsive people who likes to do things precisely. For example, if I say I am going to ride my stationary bike for 45 minutes, riding for 44 minutes doesn't cut it. Or when my husband and I walk together and he wants to stop ten feet short of my usual turning point, I look at him as though he has just suggested we shave our heads...not going to happen! Obsessive/compulsive or not, I chose sitemeter (http://www.sitemeter.com/ ) for my counter because you can set it to ignore your own visits...that way I would know exactly how many VISITORS stopped by.
I am very grateful for all of the kind words and for all of the blogging friends I have made in the past few months. I love seeing your artwork and sharing bits and pieces of your lives. To celebrate, I am going to offer blog candy (took me a long time to figure out what that meant!) For the next ten days, if you leave a comment and link to this post, your name will go in a drawing. On June 18th I will have one of my children draw a name (unless I figure out how to use one of those random drawing thingies :-) ) The blog candy will be one Close To My Heart stamp set of your choice...any size! (Up to a $22.95 value for the stamps) In addition, you will receive one paperpack of your choice. ($12.95 value) To see the various stamps and papers, you can check out my website: marieisom@myCTMH.com
PS All of my followers will have their names put in a second time so that they have TWO chances to win.
Marie with a big :-)
Another PS I just realized that not all of the people who visit my blog regularly have their own blog. Soooo, if you e-mail me a comment to let me know you are visiting my site, I will include your name in the drawing. And finally...my actual numbers for card sales since April 4th is 272...I thought it was closer to 300 but I was wrong!
