Lesley -

Thanks so much for this post. Your blog has been such an encouragement to me over the past few months - I just love visiting it and never leave without feeling inspired.

Thank you!

:-) Molly

Dear Lesley, I have been visiting your blog for a short time as I am relatively new to blogging myself. But I have immensely enjoyed my visits probably because I have felt your kind and creative personality through each post. I am sure I will be back many more times.

Kindly, ldh

Sounds like you made the right decision. Love ya, Stephani :)

No counter on my blog, Lesley. Similar to you, it never was or will be about who & how many people visit my blog. Kinda reminds me of the docu I watched a bit last night in horror. It talked about the sheer greed that motivates us humans to do unbelievable & most likely hurtful things to each other. I agree with you, let's enjoy this as you call it Land O'Blog & focus on the things that are really important to us. Have a wonderful weekend & keep up the great work! Cheers, Julie

I am so happy for sounds like your are finding your path. Good for you!


Lesley, there is something for you on my blog! ~Lori


This is my first visit to your blog-I found you through Lori and it is well worth the visit. I love your blog and will be back again. I also really like what you said in this post:)

Lesley, this is so important. My blog counter malfunctioned and I was going to reload it but decided no, why am I doing this? Is my "success" or better put my "happiness" based on the number of people who visit? No, and I was becoming consumed with looking at it too. I also gave up checking my hearts except once a week on the Heartomatic site for Etsy for Lent. And it has been so freeing!! I don't plan to start again. Thank you for being bold enough to share yourself with us.
