10,000 Visitors - WOW

I started blogging on July 5, 2007 - thinking this would be a great way to chronicle my quilt making. And it has been - and so much more. I've met wonderful friends - I've done things I didn't know I could do - I've found great projects and patterns - I've "traveled" to distant lands through the blogs of those who share so willingly - I've discovered areas within myself that I didn't know existed and improved areas that have helped change my life immensely. And it has all been because of you - my good blogging friends. I've met friends far away and friends right here in my own town.

In honor of all the goodness and friendship and help and sharing I'd like to give something back. How about a give-away? Maybe some quilt blocks - maybe some fabrics - maybe, who knows, I'll have to dig around and see what I can come up with. I have constantly been amazed at how many visitors I have on my blog - and the places they come from. All over the world -as my feedjit shows on the sidebar. Sometimes I have to Google the names of the countries as I have no idea where they might be - and with that Google search I learn more about those countries - broadening my life experience through your visits. Thank you for coming - and thank you to those who leave wonderful comments. I have been so fortunate in the comments - not one grumpy or mean or ugly comment. I just knew all you fabulous people were out there.

I think there should be two give-aways. One for the 10,000th visitor - and you will have to tell me who you are as I have no way of keeping accurate track of who that would be - and one from a random drawing - because 10,000 visitors is such a great number. I don't have as many posts in those almost two years as some other do - but I think 130 posts is great for me. I am in awe of those of you who post every day - without fail - what an achievement!!!!

I've blogged about

It's been great pleasure - all this blogging and visiting blogs - so be ready for the 10,000 visitor blog give-away - and you never know which set of comments I will be taking the random drawing from - this one? a past blog comment? a future blog comment? Surprises all around - and if you are the 10,000 visitor - please let me know!!! I'll post more about the random drawing give-away soon - gotta go and hunt up some good stuff to give away!!

And thanks so much for visiting my blog - and for the wonderful comments I've receive from all of you!!! Thanks friends!

Seems to be going around, this 10,000 thing! I have noticed it on a few other blogs too. As for seeing who is the 10K-th, can you click on your feejit thing and see if they have us all by URL? Or your counter thing? I know I can click on my sitemeter counter and it gives me all kinds of info.
