Welcome VoiceBoks Visitors!
This past week I started getting a lot of comments that said “Visiting from VoiceBoks”. I checked my stats for referring sites, but there was no VoiceBoks 😦 (It’s still not showing up despite the traffic I’m getting from there. Weird.). So I went to the website to see if I could find my link. I didn’t see it anywhere just out in the open and I was so confused at how everyone found me. Finally late the other night I found my link here: List 2 May 16, 2011. Mystery solved. After I finally figured out where everyone was coming from I added my button to the blog directory and joined the community! Yay me 🙂
Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and commenting!
I’ve been really behind on the blog lately. I’ve barely written any posts and I haven’t kept up with responding to comments. Oops. I try to visit everyone’s blog who comments, but I just haven’t had a chance. So, let me tell you a little about my blog and then we’ll chat some more about who’s following who and who’s visiting what blog when. You know, really important stuff.
You can read more about me here and my blog here and here. Hopefully by reading my About Me page and glancing at my sidebar you’ll get a good idea of my personality and what my blog is all about. Buttons for my most popular posts are located in the right sidebar, along with the category cloud. If you’re looking for a drop down menu of categories or my archives you can find them in the gray widget in the left sidebar. There are buttons at the bottom of each post and in the left sidebar so that you can subscribe and follow me as many ways as you like. You can subscribe to receive emails by using the WordPress subscription button at the top right sidebar or through feedburner by using any of the orange buttons with an envelope on it. I don’t have Google Friend Connect, so don’t look for it. If you like me on Facebook, live a comment with your page link so that I can like you back. If you follow me on Twitter @ me to let me know so that I can follow you back 🙂
I follow a lot of blogs. Like, too many. So many that I’m often so busy reading other blogs that I don’t have time to write my own! That being said I’m always open to subscribing to more blogs. I like to read blogs similar to my own that talk about family, traditions, and making memories (it helps if you’re funny too 😉 ). I’m looking to make bloggy friends, meaning, you read my blog and I read yours and we comment on each others blogs and get to know each other that way. The more that I can see that you have an interest in my blog and comment to let me know that…the more I’ll want to read and comment on your blog. Some people frown upon this way of “following”, but I can only read so many blogs a day and I’d rather read my “friends” blog than someone else’s.
I personally like to subscribe by email. I never use a feed and I never check Google Friend Connect. If you don’t have email subscription chances are I will never visit your blog after my first visit because I’ll forget all about it. If you have a WordPress blog you should have an email subscription option in your Widgets section. Just drop it in your sidebar (right at the top!) and you’re done 🙂 If you don’t use WordPress or don’t want to use their subscription box, you can sign up for feedburner (for free) and add an email subscription box or link. I also like to follow everyone on Facebook, Twitter, Networked Blogs, and Blog Frog. If I see those options on your blog, I will follow you there too…but I still prefer email subscription in addition to that.
I do like real comments about my posts not just, “I’m following you, follow back.”. So, if you’ve already left me a real comment, please feel free to include your follow information in your comment. Tell me a little about your blog, let me know if you’re on Twitter or Facebook, leave your links, etc. I don’t mind a little shameless self-promotion if it comes with a genuine interest in my blog 😉 This means I can start following you even sooner 🙂
