Bog of Note



It's going to take me awhile to sort through all the comments on yesterday's post. I'll remember December 31, 2008 as my fifteen minutes of fame. Wow. I'm used to seeing a new commenter here and there on the blog, but 53 comments? I'm overwhelmed. It's a good overwhelm, should say. THANK YOU everyone who visited the Gold Puppy yesterday.

Out of the 53 comments I received yesterday, there was only one from a person who felt compelled to insult me (I didn't bother to publish that one) and some spam from Asian industrial companies. Most of the comments were generous and appreciative.

Wow.

The holidays are over! As always I am relieved. Happy, too, to make myself at home in 2009. I love beginnings; January 1 is always one of my favorite days of the year.

Happy New Year to old blogfellows and brand new blogfellows. May 2009 be a year of great good health, good cheer and happiness. May it be so!

I wouldn't pay much attention to the individual(s) with far too much time on their hands to be posting abuive messages, they're not worth it.

Anywho, just another visitor via Blogs of Note, congrats. ;)

Congrats on being a blog of note! This video is AMAZING!!! Thanks for sharing!

The tone (blog-wide) of your photos is "find the most interesting thought available at the present moment and express it." I'm being really subjective, I know, but that comes through to me, and is refreshing. Keep up the good work. Your "mostly photos" preface, is however, belied by some pretty good writing.

Congratulations, especially on building some new links with kindred spirits over time.

The video reminds me of Marisa Monte's "Enquanto Isso",
"If we could only see fast enough
We could see everything
Dawns turnings nights..."
As if an ultimate understanding would be revealed,

Thank you and congratulations! I'm a blogger newbie. Thought about it for a long time but wasn't sure what I would write about. Got a gentle nudge from a friend a few weeks ago and jumped in with both feet. The holidays gave me lots a writing material but I wondered what I would write about after they were over. Also wondered about how to decide what other blogs to follow.

When I saw you on 'Blog of Note' yesterday. I was inspired and enlightened. Thank you. I even figured out how to add you to my 'blogs I am following'. Did it wrong yesterday, got it right today. I wish you peace, love, joy and many blessings everyday!

Jen said...

Happy New Year!

Nice blog :)

Gary said...

I don't know much about this Blog of Note thing but it seems to be a big deal, so congratulations! It certainly has upped your traffic - at least as evidenced by the comments (up to 61 on the previous post). And you certainly deserve the attention. I feel a bit like "I knew you when".

Love ya dahlink. xoxo

Well done on Blog of Note. Comment moderation sadly is needed - the price of 15 mins of fame I guess.

Happy New your too!

Beautiful.

You've created a wonderful cyber garden. It's hard to be around the ever expanding ego of DC. You seem to know how to lift your eyes up. Congrats. I'll peek in again.

Peace in the New Year!
