In a month I will celebrate a year of blogging - I started my Blogger account before that, but I remember blogging seriously in September of 2010 with a photo record of our camping trip to Kahneeta, an Indian reservation resort in the high desert of Oregon.
This is my 170th post.
35,765 Pageviews since I began.
I've had visitors from 89 countries on planet Earth. (I don't know how many from outer space) :-)
I have 149 "Members" but I call them "Friends". :-)
When I have 150 Friends, I will have a "Giveaway". I'll post a photo of it when I announce it. :-)
My all-time most popular post was when I gave instructions on how to make my "Scandinavian Crochet Heart Ornament". That page has been visited 361 times.
But what I did not know, was how many fellow bloggers and visitors to my blog that I would call real friends. And that, my dear people, has been the "pot of gold" at the end of the rainbow.

I especially want to say *T*H*A*N*K* * *Y*O*U*!*!*!* to those fellow bloggers who have added my blog URL to their list of favorites. It means a lot to me.
