V.E.R.Y. I.N.T.E.R.E.S.T.I.N.G....

Treadmills
I don't know about you, but I find it very interesting that I have an average of 75 visitors a day to by blog but am lucky to get one or two comments! If that many people are coming back wouldn't you think that more of them would drop a line saying Hi or something? I do........I try to leave a comment almost every time I visit a blog just to let the person know that I was there and that I am back because I like what they are saying, or their art, or their links, or something! A person doesn't have to comment regarding another's talent, but just maybe a word that they stopped in.....I don't know....maybe it is just me! I just feel that those of us that have blogs put alot of time and energy into them and just to know that there are REAL PEOPLE out there visiting would be incentive in itself to continue.....What do you think!

Oh my gosh...I feel the same way. I know people are visiting, but not saying anything. I visit yours regularly and I have left comments...I'm the one who lived in Chesterfield before moving to Madison....anyhow, I will keep leaving you notes so that you'll know that I was here. Also, based on my name..seaside dreamer...I think I'm going to need that newest box !!!! (ps..how do you know how many hits you are getting...I don't know how to do that ???)

Beth.....I can't find your blog so I am leaving you a message here:) You can get a free counter by just going to google and typing in "free counter"....You should have several or many to choose from. Just pick one and they will lead you through it! That is if you have a blog? Where is it? Thanks for your darling note:)

Oh dear, I'm feeling the sting of a teacher's repremand! :o) I'm one of those that visit your blog everyday and I can certainly see the effort and love you put into this. Your work is something I have been admiring for several months now (when I first came across your blog). I love what you do, I just wish I could figure out your techniques! I enjoy collage so much but I don't have any training, so I tend to linger a bit and admire, much like I would at any gallery. I guess that's one of the reasons I don't leave comments; it certainly isn't meant to be rude but more out of respect. (basically I don't know what to say!) But I will now start leaving comments because they are important to you and if that will help sustain you and keep you posting your gorgeous creations, well, it's a small price to pay! Thank you for your generosity in sharing your work. I don't have a blog right now but will in January.

Debbie.....I didn't mean to make you feel uncomfortable!!!!!! I just would love to know that real human being are out there and their opinions about things! Please let me know when you start your blog.....and.....always ask if you have a question about technique. I am a teacher and would be MORE than happy to share. Ask away!!!! Thanks for your comment! Linda

It's me, your sis, I love how you always leave me a comment. I don't get a lot of traffic, that's for sure, and I always look to see if anyone has visited. It certainly helps reinforce our efforts/ you do have a counter, and keep track, though, and that's got to be rewarding......I love you, you nutty art fanatic!!!!

Linda, I'm one of those visitors who reads your blog often but doesn't leave a comment. I enjoy your work. I especially love your boxes. They are treasures!

I always comment when I see something I like on whatever blog. It's very time consuming sometimes, but I now how much I enjoy and appreciate getting nice comments so it's clear to me that others do too! And yes I also like the interacting! :D
