Getting To Know You In Blogland!

Blogland.....oh, the mysteries of this amazing place where we can meet one another and share our thoughts, ideas, and whatever our little heart desires!! It is the modern day, "Dear Diary" and yet the big difference is that instead of storing our musings and secrets away from prying eyes with a little key, we welcome all who are interested and get excited by the growing number of "followers" we add to our list!

Today as I reflect on this, I find myself wondering who all of you are who are reading this right now......yes, YOU!!! I know you can find out about me because I put lots of personal info there for you to read, plus even a picture, so if you never met me before in person, you can at least recognize me in a crowd, if we happen to cross paths!! You have been allowed access into my "blog world" and you are most warmly welcome!! The sad thing is that you may come for a visit and I will never get the chance to know you were here, or who you are, or what you thought, or really anything about you! I can check my stats and see your email addresses, and for those of you I personally invited, I know you get a notice of a new post, but in reality, I never ever know who was here!! It makes me curious and wonder about you....that I would like to get to know you too!! Not just an email address, but a person with a name......YOU!!!

Here's a suggestion for you! If you stop by for a visit to read what I am up to, would you do me a huge favor and let me know you were here? How can you do that? I'm so glad you asked me that!! First of all, you can just leave a comment about the post! It is super easy and is right at the bottom of the post! Just click on comment and let me know what you thought!! You could also become a follower and then I could see who YOU are and get to know you that way. Or just say "Hi Julie!" I would LOVE that too!! Or, you could visit my picture trail and sign my guest book! In the future, I would like to do a Giveaway and if you leave me your name and email, I can sign you up for that! I guess what I am trying to say is, "Thanks for taking the time to get to know me, and now let me get to know you!" Simple! Easy! Pain free!! So many options!! All from the comfort of your home!!

Ah, Blogland! There is no place else quite like it!! See you there my friend!!!

I just deleted my earlier post - so many typos! Here's what I wrote: I love blogland too. I just signed up to follow your blog and so far I'm finding so much prim eye candy! Love it! I also have a blog, so instead of typing out all my info, I'll invite you to come visit http://stoneyhillcabin.blogspot.com and see my cats and read some of my ramblings. Your blog looks terrific.
