Blown away.

Sunday, September 7, 2008

Thanks to google reader, I know that I have 96 subscribed readers, so I thought I was prepared for all of the lurkers to come out and make an appearance . . . but I was incorrect. You guys blew me away, and have provided me with ample new reading material! :)

Additionally, I thoroughly enjoyed reading all of your comments over the weekend.

I absolutely loved the time that so many of you took to humor me and provide insight as to why you read. Based on the overarching theme of my honesty, and using the weekend as time for reflection, I was able to see how the frankness that I live my life day to day, which can be abrassive, is actually a great character flaw when it comes to blogging. :)

So many of your comments produced a huge grin, while others actually brought tears to my eyes {what? I'm emotional!}, but from one of the few that could actually say it, AJ your's really choked me up.

Be jealous, other marital-bless blog readers. Yes, I have met the likes of this fabulous lady. She really is just the way she writes. When I read her stories, I can hear her voice and her intonations. It's totally Leah, and it's totally fabulous.

Whether it really is because you know me, that you can hear my meaning or know what I'm getting at, your comment justified that as a blogger I am accurately representing myself, something that I've been scared that I would eventually stray from. While I don't think I'm fabulous by any means, your comment meant so much to me.

As to those who challenged me to continue writing as I have been, considered it done! :)

I missed the favor request, but just wanted to pop in and say that I'm always reading and enjoying your blog. You obviously have a heart of gold, and it rings true in everything that you write.

Can you please tell me how to see how many subscribed readers I have?

I have also felt afraid I'd stray from my true self so I opened a second blog where I write anonymously so I can get it ALL out, LOL.

I'm glad to hear that you are going to keep up the blogging. Yay!!!

Thanks for your comments on my blog...I got my inspiration for my fall wishlist from you (you've got great taste!!) :)

Have a good week....

lisa - I can't comment on the heart of gold, but I'm glad you're reading!

cagequeen - if you use google reader, add yourself as a subscription, then select your blog, on the top right, you will see "show details." You avg post/week and # of subscribers are shown.

sarah - AE has great stuff!

AJ said...

Awww Leah. You made me smile. And that's exactly what I need. I'm just being honest, yo.

How can you tell on Google Reader how many people subscribe? I never thought to check that!

I'll answer your previous post's question in this comment: I somehow found you via The Nest or The Knot, but I can't remember how. I just got married and moved to the TC, so it's nice to read about a married local who is also a Christian!
