Anyway. I appreciate those of you who stepped forward and introduced yourselves.
Hi Donna! I'm your UMKC reader and I have a list of about 8 favorite blogs that I open in tandem each morning before I start working and occasionally at lunchtime. I'm not a teacher or the janitor, but a staff member who works with graduate students . . . I'm the thesis/dissertation format checker! I live in Independence so I like that I recognize the places you talk about in your blog and I was raised in rural Kansas so I enjoy the stories of your cows and gardening. I sent you a recipe one time for squash fries. I think I found your blog through a comment that you made on the Midtown Miscreant blog a couple of years ago. I really enjoy that you update nearly every day. I'm also big fan of the Pioneer Woman blog--I think I found her blog from yours, so thank you!
I remember you sending the recipe, Nancy, and I made those fries more than once.
I may show up as unknown. I found your blog on PW a long time ago and follow you on my blogger dashboard. My dh and I live in SWMo and have horses, garden and ride an HD Roadglide. I like the way you write and enjoy your stories. It is like visiting you and Cliff. Thanks for sharing!
I read somewhere that only 9% of your readers will ever comment. I'm not sure if that's true or not, but there are some people out there that will LOVE your blog, but for various reasons, will never let you in on it.
Let me say I'm surprised to see a comment from Candice, because she has such a large following AND works as a nurse. Oh, and has a couple of young children. So I'm amazed she has time to comment on any blogs! She is hilarious and outspoken. I will warn you that her blog is not G-rated; if some curse words don't bother you, then you might want to read her views on child-raising HERE. Get ready to laugh.
If any more of you silent readers want to come out of the closet and introduce yourselves, feel free. If not, that's all right; I appreciate every one of you, even the silent majority.
