More New Friends....More Inspiration!



Thanks to all of you who have kindly taken the time to send a quick comment on my recent posts. As bloggers, we know that a comment is the lifeblood of our blogs.

The other beautiful thing to watch are the followers who decide to get on board and take the ride with you. In the 'not so long ago days', it was called networking. As someone who has spent most of her career looking for ways to 'persuade' people that "this is a product you just can't live without", I find blogging a fascinating medium. You never know how you are going to meet people and what impact that meeting could have.

One recent meeting was with Paulette. She is from Long Island, New York and has a sweet blog you'll find at beedeebabee. As with all things technical, there was a glitch in blogland and all of our followers were missing from our list. Long story short....Paulette and I found ourselves in the same forum trying to find a solution to the problem. Before we knew it, our followers were back, we became blogging friends and have each been able to refer followers to one another's blogs.

So I hope you will take a moment to check out 'The Blogs I Absolutely Love', stop by a few and leave an encouraging comment. It's important for us to know you're out there waiting for our next post.

Hi Julie! First, I want to tell you that card is gorgeous! I can truly appreciate all the time it took you to cut those intricate flowers & leaves! :) You hit the nail on the head with your wording in this post! It really is truly rewarding when you check your blog & see a new face pop up! I always look forward to the comments as well. Do you post your creations on a gallery such as Splitcoast, Two Peas, or PTI? Have a great day! Hugs, Mona

Julie Ranae said...

I do post on Splitcoast. I probably should link my gallery here.
Thanks so much, Mona....

You really hit a homerun with this post...do you mind if I copy a few lines from it and post it on my blog? I get a lot of traffic but very few people take the time to post comments. By the way...I love the card...very well done! Have a great evening!

Julie Ranae said...

Hi Kelly....we still need to get you on as a follower. Did you get my instructions?

Sure....quote away. Glad to share with everyone when I can, where I can!

Thanks to everyone who commented on this card....it sold on Etsy as soon as I listed it there.
I may try to do another version of it, but if I do, don't expect a blog post that day...it takes awhile! :)

Wow, Blogger still had problems 2 years later with the same issue. Glad it all got resolved (both times) and friendships weren't lost!
