I'm Almost Famous

OK, here's the deal:
I put a new hit counter on my blog. It's in the eighties now. Only I don't have the comment volume to match. What's up with that? So, for those of you who come by and never comment (Carlina), you should say "Hi" so that when I'm famous- and it's going to be soon, folks- you can say you knew me when.

**I just heard that I'm going to be famous on Monday, so you may want to get on the "I knew her when..." train before it pulls out of the station. Just sayin'.

Okay, okay I'll leave a comment. I have no idea how I found you but I've got you on my feed reader now and have been reading for a few weeks.

christie said...

ooooo I like famous people....

Debbie said...

Ms.Gina...you are about to be famous once you are the SITS queen for the day!

Kat said...

I am so obsessed with all my stat counters. I actually have 5 of them. They all say different things. I think a lot of people land on my blog by accident. Like the people in India. And Malaysia. And Czech Republic...

Mama's Losin' It said...

I don't think my comment/hits ever even out either...

mer said...

Look...you're in the 200s now! Way to go!!!

My comments average to be about 15% of my total daily traffic. Interesting. There was a big blog discussion going on awhile back about blog comments. Want me to find a link for you???

Cookie said...

Famous! At least you can start your week off right! Don't forget me! :-)

Debbie said...

And I'm going to be cheering you on the entire time!

Memarie Lane said...

Why are people so reluctant to comment? WHY??? And the people most reluctant to comment are RL friends and relatives. If only they knew...

Jill said...

I'm from SITS, too! Your blog is So funny and real. I just added it to my google reader

Jen said...

Congrats on getting feature. Nice blog.

Carrie said...

I noticed you were playing "the circle of life" when I came in ...

How's this for you:

In the Handful of Life
It's the coins in your dryer
It's the leap of faith
Into Yakima River
And the absence of Sparkle
Till we find our place
In the Handful, the Handful of Life

See, I am a regular reader ;)

Gina, I don't know if my counter has ever gone up to 80 in one day!!

I did get 74 visits on Friday, with 20 comments. I never match either. I do have a few Aunts, Uncles and my dad who look at my blog, but don't have blogs, so they can't comment.

I'm just hoping I can keep up. I like to always comment back when people comment. I never want to have so many that I cannot have a friendship.

So far so good. Have a blessed day, and yay, I knew you before you became a celebrity!!! Hugs, Kathi

Z's Mom said...

Hi, I'm here from SITS, enjoying your blog. Congrats on being featured today! From what I've read so far I'm really enjoying your blog. :)

Feathering My Nest said...

Gina, Please fill me in. What's SITS? I've never heard of this.

Kathi

Gina said...

Kathi- Yes, you knew me when.
Click on the cute pink and brown button on my side bar and it will take you to SITS- The Secret's In The Sauce- a place where they feature a new blogger each week day.
Carrie, you knew me when. I've seen you around.
Debbie, Cookie, Mer, Kat- you knew me when.
The rest of y'all are hoppin on the train as it pulls out of the station- welcome aboard.

THAT is a funny post! Love it!

Val said...

Came on over from SITS!

Your blog is great! Thanks for a good read!

Mrs. Parks said...

Can I exagerate and say we were "friends" before you were famous? I know it's kinda pushy, but I don't know any famous people and would like to start out slow ; )

Love the blog, have a great day!

Your New Friend,
M

Scary Mommy said...

I am sooo waiting for my SITS day of fame. Lucky you!!

Dapoppins said...

I guess I am going to have to get to know you, because I don't know any one famous...and I really really want to.

Gramma 2 Many said...

Never forget the one who labored for HOURS to give you life. I think it was about two hours. It is fun to read your take on life.

Mercedes said...

I have noticed the same thing on my site! I am just curious who is stopping by.

Charlie said...

I'd say you are way past 80 now :)

LisaPetrarcaBlog said...

Hi,

I just found SITS and YOU all in the same day, it must be my lucky day...can you say "LOTTERY TICKET!"

I love your humor, or should I say survival tool?

Off to buy my ticket!!

Take care,

Lisa aka...(Mom of the "Orange Co. Brady Bunch")

Parker said...

Hey there.
I hope you get lots of comments. I always wonder why no one comments but then again I'm too lazy to get a counter thingy. YOU ROCK.

KC said...

Came over from SITS!!

Can I say I knew you when too???

Tara R. said...

I want to get on the 'knew her when train,' where do I get a ticket?

(via SITS)

laurie b said...

LOVED this post!! Just helping with the comment count!!! Remember me when you're famous! With gratitude, Laurie B.

Feathering My Nest said...

Thanks Gina, I am now a SITS member, I think. Do I sign up or just put the picture/link on my site? Have lovely Wednesday, Kathi

-Bridget said...

Lol, I hear ya. Before SITS I had less than 10% of people that visit leave comments. At least with the stat counter I know a lot of people are reading. They just like to be lurkers.
