A Big Thanks for those who Comment on Old Posts and a "tsk tsk" for those who Copy and Run
A couple of days ago I got a comment from Linda regarding an old post I did about my childhood doll.
I notice that quite a few people find that post by searching for the doll's name.
Linda is only the second person to take the time and effort to let me know she enjoyed reading that old post.
Thank you, Linda. I loved getting your email.
For those who don't know, I do get an email on all comments, so if you feel the urge, but think the post is too old, please reconsider. Your comment will get to me.
I enjoy getting feedback from the posts I did three years ago, just as much as the current ones!
I bought a new ornament yesterday. I need a new ornament like Imelda needs a new pair of shoes, but is he cute or what? I love snowmen and I love candy ornies. This one is both. I just adore him!
Since I am writing about old posts, I may as well throw in my "old post" rant, too.
Last year I did a step-by-step post with a bunch of pictures about how to make a bow out of wrapping paper. That post took a long time to do (as anyone who blogs knows taking the pics, uploading, sizing pics, etc. takes some time). Anyway that post has garnered quite a lot of attention. Last year a couple of people found it and offered a nice thank you for posting it. That made me feel good, like it was worth the effort.
This month I've had hordes of people popping in from search engines to get that info. Not one of them has left a "Hey-Zoey-thanks-for-giving-us-that-info" comment. The same thing is happening now with another craft post how-to. They copy the how-to info and run.
Sometimes that bothers me--just a little bit..................what can I say? I guess I am just a sensitive girl.
I am so glad you stopped by to visit my garden. I garden in lower northern Michigan (zone 5) in far less than ideal conditions. I have too many pine trees, too much shade, too many rocks, herds of hosta-munching deer and rabbits who think my lilly buds are gourmet appetizers. I am by no means an expert in horticulture or garden design--just an amateur with a shovel and a passion. My garden changes daily during the summer and I will be updating frequently.
During the winter months, I blog about my favorite cold-weather hobby--quilting and just my everyday musings.
I hope you enjoy your visit, and that you will come back soon.
