Merrily I creep along...


...toward a goal.  300.  Followers.



"Creeping"
Bucks County, Pennsylvania


When I first hit "publish" three years ago, I was hoping for one follower.  One that wasn't my mom.  Or Better Half.  Or someone I emotionally blackmailed to follow me.  Basically, I was photographing and writing into a big black hole.  I was "kinda" okay with that.  After all, I am a mom. I'm use to broadcasting into black holes.

Slowly I started to gain a few followers.  The numbers began to creep up.  And so did my feeling of value.  So THIS is what it's like to know there are people who are interested in what I have to say and photograph...who aren't forced to!  Kinda cool.  Not to mention I have met some pretty amazing and talented peeps along the way who truly inspire me.  I've been blessed.

But I'm also greedy. This "creeping" is pretty slow going.  I'm not known for my patience.  I've now been creeping and blogging for almost three years.  I don't think I've creeped at anything that long in my life before (except for maybe one guy in college I MIGHT have stalked creeped.).  I guess that is an indicator of how much I enjoy blogging and photography.  I'm okay with the creeping because it's not what the ultimate reason for this venture is.  However, goals are good.  

So if you want to help a gal out, I've set my sights on 300 followers by July.  That's only ten more I need.  So rare in life do I ask so little (the Better Half can vouch!).  So if you are a regular "stopper by-er" here and aren't an official "follower"...wouldn't you feel special being part of a milestone and consider joining the '300 club'?  It's easy peasy.  Just scroll towards the bottom of this page where it says "Join this site".  And join.  

Only TEN more freakin' followers!!!  It will make me feel like I've reached another plateau.  Like when I attained "Premiere" status at DSW! Except this will be a much cheaper creeper (the Better Half thanks you!).

How DO these blogs with 1,000+ followers do it?!?!  Merrily I creep along.




Here's where I "link up" today.

  1. I'm glad you've continued to creep along and share your photos and your words with us. I'm already a follower, so I can't help you there. But I agree that goals are good to have and I wish you luck in getting there!

  2. I love following you on this blogging journey! I've learned that I don't care about the number - since I have some high number and avg 10 comments on each post that it's quality not quantity. But damn girl, 300! You got this in the bag!!!

  4. I would say that 290 followers is a mighty following, Kathy, good on 'ya! I am way, way, way behind that number, but feeling the same way you do. It truly is an honor when people follow and keep up with our efforts. I have to honestly say that I am very wary to sign up anywhere with my email myself, just because I am already getting so freakin' many, and prefer feedly or such. But I'll think about it :)

    1. I'm with you Claudia, I very rarely sign up for emails. I prefer to use Googke Friend Connect. It just works well with Blogger.

  5. I do not know how people with the 1000s do it, but you know what? Those with a modest following usually are way more community minded, and I love that. Not that growth is wrong or shouldn't be sought. However, I love that feeling of connectedness that comes from being a smallish blogger. I know you will keep growing though, because you are such a fun gal! I'm already a fan! I remember when you started this fan page not that long ago and you are already at nearly 300? Way to go!
