Keep Those Cards and Letters Coming In

Wow, last night before I went to bed I went to check and clear my spam folder and I saw something that I hadn’t previously noticed. My blog, in its 27 month existence, has received 50,500 comments!ACDB98D0-10C1-43B2-836F-F0087097AADBOf course, 12,013 of those comments, or almost 24%, were comments I made in response to comments others had posted. But that still means that you folks have commented on my posts 38,487 times!

I have nothing to compare these numbers to, but they sound like high numbers. According to my stats, my average comments per post so far this year is 17, which doesn’t sound that high to me. But I suppose, since I post anywhere from three to five times a day, they add up quickly.

Whatever the numbers mean, I want to genuinely and sincerely thank those of you who regularly read my blog and I really appreciate it when you take the time and make the effort to leave comments on my posts.

I’ve been kinda of critical of WordPress and all of the glitches and issues that keep surfacing on the WordPress app for iOS (since I do almost all of my blogging from my iPhone). But despite my whining about the WordPress app, the WordPress community of bloggers is the best.

I love you guys!

    I agree with you, there really is a fabulous group of bloggers on WordPress – they make all it all worthwhile.

    I miss Teresa though so much!

    🙂 Hi Fandango, I am glad to know that you are deeply appreciative of your WordPress community (Those of us who are part of it are grateful).

    By the way, you did not thank Apple. You do all of your blogging via your iPhone; so you should thank them also.

    I have been here a month longer than you have and you got 5 times as many comments as I do.

    I agree the WP app for iPhone has bugs. You hear that WP, it needs to get fixed. I, too do lots of my blogging from my iPhone.
