Well. That's That.

I find it interesting that the four people who commented on the post about The Bloggies were last year's winners. And most likely the only four people who read my blog.

I really think I'm a good writer. I am entertaining, charming, witty, cynical, and myself. I think I am better than cJane and NieNie and she was on Oprah!

What does it take to get your name out there!

Come one my four readers! Spread the word!

Want your name out "there". Do a giveaway- it gets LOTS of people to your blog!
AND it will get you in the Christmas Spirit :)

PLUS they're really fun and exciting.

THOUGH I do want to mention, giveaway or no giveaway I will continue reading your blog.

You could post a link to your blog on your facebook when you post a new one... and I GUARANTEE there are lots of people that read your blog that you don't know about. For instance, that video that I posted of Greta has been viewed nearly 50 times. That leaves me wondering, BY WHOM? I am a little curious. And I am sure some people maybe watched it more than once, but I also know that there are people that must read my blog that never comment (lots) and maybe don't have a blog of their own.

I feel the same way!! People used to comment on my blog a lot and then they stopped... Oh, well. I think when I post about how much my life sucks people feel sorry for me and post like crazy. Maybe I should do that more often. LOL

I agree with Jules. I think a lot of people read your blog, they just don't comment.

Patty, our whole family reads your blog and we are always talking and laughing about how good and entertaining it is. I don't always have time to comment because I am checking it at work sometimes, but keep up the good work. We love you and your blog!!! Give that little guy a hug from Aunt Jana.

Nat and I were talking about this very thing this morning. About how the people we care most about being the people who don't comment. My mom, dad, and Pooh read my blog religiously, but no comments. I think commenting is a language of love. I think, when you comment, you show that you care. I'm always telling them this, but they still never comment. Anyways, Nat says there's a new button called "stats" after you sign in. When you look at it, you can see exactly how many times your blog has been looked at today, during the week, the month, etc. Also, where your audience is coming from. I looked at mine today, and it made me feel a lot better. And I think you are a fabulous writer. Wayyy better than Nie Nie and CJane.

I'm a blog stalker. I don't want to be all, "HEY! I'm barging through the front door and seeing everything! I'm invading into your life! RAAAARRR!!!" More like, "May I peek into your window? Please?" Though, like Kar said, comments are a language of love.

Also, to get your name out there, join a group, like Mormon Mommy Blogs: http://mormonmommyblogs.blogspot.com/

Then write guest posts. You'll probably get a lot of new traffic and/or followers.
