Interesting Data...

I've been attempting to entertain for a few years now.  People come, people go.  I have endured.  I have reached 401 here and 199 on Familiar Spirit    Low numbers to some but to me these are whopping numbers, amazing milestones I thought I would never reach.  When I began I stressed about it, I took comments personal, then I loosened up and had some fun. 

All in all it has been and continues to be loads of fun.  I have written some good stuff, told some secrets and written some pretty crappy stuff.  I hope it has been entertaining.

Having been neglectful in my reading I plan to remedy that as soon as I get my s**t together.  Now what are the chances of that????

I was just viewing some stats. I discovered I was featured on uglystat and also some place called Gay Tony.  Amazing!  Anyone reading this from there, speak up, I just gotta know how the heck you found me.

Eleven countries have viewed me so that may be why they think the great USA is going down the toilet.

Anyway, I said all that to say this.  THANK YOU.

To celebrate, I am having a giveaway October 1st just because that is an easy day for me to remember.  All you have to do is tell me you want to enter on this post and be a follower.  I'm not sure what will be in the box of prizes but I do know it will be different than any package you have ever received.

I think your numbers are great, too.

I actually started my blog to keep up with family. It has grown a little bit, but I'd prefer to not get too big. To each their own, right?

I am very happy for you and would love to enter your giveaway!
Have a wonderful week! ♥ :o)

OK Gail - I picked "Next Blog" one foggy morning and the sun came out when I found your Blog. I have laughed, cried, understood, shared and continue to read - WHY? - cause it's honest and from the heart - like I said you should run for governor or even President - no ticks on your hinney. I like your frankness and you are not afraid to speak up - we need more of you. Thanks for the entertainment thus far and yah, sure, sign me up - I never have won anything in me life, so maybe this is it :)

Oh Gail I am certainly glad I found you, I was looking for farm blogs at the time and up you popped. I have enjoyed reading your (Strange:)) humour and cry when I read things going on now. You are a fighter and a scrapper my Dad used to call it and I am glad I get to read about it. Now with both of us trying to figure out that stupid Fibromyalgia thing I know we have a lot in common. Congratulations. I also have weird named blogs reading me. Take care Gail HUGS. Maybe it will be a rock I like rocks:)B

DesertHen said...

I have followed you for several years now and you have never failed to entertain!

I would love to join the giveaway!

Dar said...

What I love about visiting here, is you are genuine, for real, honest, no longer up tight about a darned thing. Heck yes, enter me in your giveaway. Who knows, maybe I will finally win something for the first time 2nd time in my life. The first thing I won was my hubby~~~he was a good enough catch that I kept him...

I am a selfish post-er and typically only post responses to others who enter the same prompt response sites that I do. Sometimes, though, I read more on a site. I don't have a desire to follow anyone, nothing personal, just that this is an outlet for me and to be responsible for reading everything and responding in a relationship type manner is more than I am seeking in posting anywhere at this point in time. HOwever, your site has some amazing pictures and some very good writing! Keep up the good work and do it for you, not for those who read or follow you. Your happiness comes from within, never from without. :) Have a super week!
