We bloggers wouldn't bother blogging if it were not for our followers. If no one read our blogs nor commented on them, it would soon become a chore with no pleasure at all. I love people and just love to talk, so blogging gives me a chance to chat with people that I would not otherwise have met. Of course I met a few bloggers who were instrumental in getting me started. I met John of "The Field Lab", and David of "Terlingua or Bust", and Billy Bob of "Billy Bob's Travels", and Penney of "pennys-tuppence" and since then many, many more. Also, the late Ben Woods of "An Older Texan Remembers" had a lot to do with it, too. I would like to meet all my blogging friends in person and hope to do that if possible. Some I may never meet, like Keith of "The Flying Tortoise, who lives in New Zealand and many more. I now have 76 followers and hope I can please all of them and want to thank all who take the time to read my ramblings. I have had 104550 page views and have posted 784 blog postings. That is an average of over 133 views per post. Yes, I know some are just automated search engines, but I am humbled by the numbers.
My wife has followers, also, even though she has never posted a blog nor even wants to. Let me explain, every time she heads to the kitchen she has three dogs that follow her. If they are all sleeping and she rattles a bag in the kitchen, they magically appear at her feet. You see, she cooks for our four footed fuzzy members of our household. They have never eaten store bought dog food except for Milkbone Dog Biscuits which they sparingly get as treats or bribes. Our pups are a major part of our lives and are with us almost all the time. So you see, you don't have to blog to have followers. Now, you all have a great day, you hear?
