Things I Love Thursday- YOU

TILT So I started this thing called a blog 3 1/2 years ago (can that be right? Have people seriously been reading my drivel for that long?) never knowing that it would become more than just this place I write random thoughts that only my mom and my husband read. And you show up every day. Or maybe not every day, but often. And you read and you comment and you link up to my silly Things I Love Thursday carnival. And you become my friends. Some only virtual friends, but some even real life friends. Either way, you become friends.

I am so grateful that you show up. I love every single comment even though I am not always good at responding to them. I honestly wish I was better at visiting all your blogs and responding to all your comments, but there are only so many hours in the day and these people who live in my house keep asking for things like food and clean clothes. I mean honestly. Don’t they understand I have things to do on the world wide interweb?

So I raise my glass to you my readers. Thanks for sticking around for 2010. I am excited for some new things I have planned for 2011. Hopefully you will stick around some more. I would love it if you would leave a little comment letting me know you are a regular reader. Consider it a belated Christmas gift. There is nothing bloggers like more than comments Winking smile

What are you loving this week? Feel free to link up a post about anything you love and if you would be so kind, link back here. Then hop around and visit the other TILT participants. Easy peasy. If you need more guidelines, all the Things I Love Thursday rules are here.

    Jill, I read your posts everyday and love your blog. You’re a great writer and I appreciate your honesty! This mom gig isn’t always glamorous, but it’s definitely worth it. You always bring a smile to my face! Keep up the great work :)

  14. I get your blog posts in my email now, so I don’t respond as much in comment form. I love participating in TILT though. Thank you for hosting it.

    Have a really great New Year! And keep it up. I love reading it :)

    • Oh I am constantly whining about not getting comments, but I rarely click over to comment on other people’s blogs either. Which is really, really bad.

  15. That is AWESOME! Congrats on 3.5 years! Woot!!

  18. Jill,
    Thanks for blogging and teaching me a little about it as well:) I am still learning how to link (which is why mine just says Heather) and to follow, I have no idea how to follow, but am learning along the way:)

  20. I don’t know how I missed your blog before since I follow some people linking up today, but I’m here now! I read a few posts and love your sense of humor! Congrats on 3.5 years of blogging!

  21. I keep coming back because of your honesty and sense of humor. I started reading lots of different blogs when you started blogging and you’re one of the very few blogs that I still read 3 1/2 years later. Congrats- and here’s to 3 1/2 more years :).
