Over 1000



I see blogs with 76 comments per post and I wonder how you get that kind of following. I don't quite understand how you judge the popularity of a blog, but my humble little blog is very proud to have collected over 1000 little bees in its hive. Thanks for pollinating this blog with comments and visits, I hope you've managed to scrape together some inspirational honey.

Saturday papers, market roses & chocolate sour cream cake - recipe here. Yum

I am totally with you on this one.. How do you measure? Then again, you (and I!) started blogging for our own sake, and I am just grateful others like what I do, as I find it fun and inspiring!
Congratulations to you on hitting 1000, that is indeed fantastic, I aim for the same, but love the journey, and truly appreciate all the support from everywhere!!
Is it not the most fun when you get a comment from one of the BIG HITTERS?? Those are (partly) what keeps me going :)

Congratulations:-) your blog is beautiful, I'm so not surprised you have 1000 followers.:-)

How do other blogs get 76 comments? Honestly and truly, its kind of sad really, in type, they (for want of better words!!) "sell their soul" to the computer and their faceless readers.

A few of the main ways are.....

They spend countless hours on their blogs for content and run around commenting on other's blogs, tweeting etc. so that they will have " return" comments, more often than not, to the neglect of their family and friends.

I've been there, I know. It's not worth it.

And the other thing is the age of the blog, often the longer the blog has been around, the more the followers/comments.

Keep your blog as it is its lovely.

Good for you - I wonder the same thing - I know people are reading my blog but they are not signing up as followers - which is frustrating - doing a new push though - glad I've found you and I am now following you - will enjoy coming back to visit
