ONE YEAR OF POSTS AND 100,000 VISITORS


Painting of my beloved Shih tzu Odie


Just recently I posted no. 365 . Never in my wildest imagination would I have ever dreamed of having 100,000 people visit my blog when I began it two years ago. I have Blogger's Blog of Note to thank as well as Stuart at Blotanical and Garden Voices.

It's been an incredible experience and I've met a lot of wonderful garden bloggers along the way.
I'm hoping that if Chicago gets the 2016 Olympics I'll be able to meet some of them here in the windy city.

  3. Hi Carolyn Gail, it's been awhile since I visited and want to congratulate you on this accomplishment. Your wonderful art is still amazing and I remember well you winter spent in Florida away from your garden. When the garden bloggers meet up next fall, ask Mr. McGregor's Daughter when that will be, we do hope to be able to meet you. Well done.

  5. Congratulations!

    I don't think I'll ever be able to boast of my blog visitors, because during the summer most of my hits are from searches for a zucchini bread recipe, LOL! I always know when the zucchini is ripe because my hits increase dramatically.

  10. Congratulations on this milestone!

    (For some reason, by the way, I can't get your feed to show up for me on Google Reader. It worked at one time, then I thought you had stopped posting, then realized the feed had just stopped working. Any ideas?)

    I had my computer geeks check my feed and he says its fine and that it must be from your end.

  13. Congratulations, Carolyn! 100,000 visitors is quite a milestone.
    I haven't been here for awhile, but I do enjoy your posts and especially the Muse Day on the first of the month. I always look forward to reading all the poetry that everyone posts.
    I just read your last post about dieting--I can relate to everything you said! For me, though, the last 10 years have been a time of putting on a few more pounds each year without eating more. That's hard to deal with when you grew up as a "skinny girl," as you said. I don't believe in fad diets, either, but The Good Calorie Diet sounds like a sensible one.

  16. I'm not surprised at your readership at all, Carolyn! Your blog is wonderful and I need to visit much more often instead of playing catch-up all the time! (Seems like that's all I've done all summer with everything!)

    Congratulations and here's to many more years!
