"My Mum always taught me to say thank you," he says, "so I thought it was time I did by thanking some of the sites that have sent me traffic." And he invites the rest of us to follow suit. "Perhaps we should make this a semi regular event of acknowledging the places that keep our blogs going by providing readers."
Darren is right. Without readers, we bloggers are talking to ourselves. I do appreciate the traffic y'all send my way. Really, one of my favorite things about blogs and blogging is the sharing. Look! I found this fantastic book/website/quote/article! Check it out! What do you think?
There's a reason Show and Tell was everyone's favorite thing about kindergarten. It's as much fun to watch and listen as it is to show and tell. So: here's my great big thanks to all of you out there who are showing and telling such interesting, inspiring, and thought-provoking things; and thanks to the folks who have linked here when it's my turn to Show and Tell.
Here's a special shout-out to my top twelve referrers from recent months:
Big A little a
A Chair, a Fireplace, and a Tea Cozy
The Common Room
Jen Robinson's Books Page
Suitable for Mixed Company
I also get a lot of traffic from the folks on the Real Learning Webring, especially Bruggie Tales, Castle of the Immaculate, Cajun Cottage, By Sun and Candlelight, and, of course, my virtual home away from home, Cottage Blessings. Thanks, all of you!
