Hmmmmm.... (edited!)

Only one thank you for sharing the awesome directions for the spinning rack!!!! Yet - there was over 40 people that requested the information -so I thought you wanted it...

I guess I just thought I would have heard back from more than one person....Especially since I had over two hundred visits to my blog yesterday alone!!!! (I know - you must all be waiting til you finish your spinning racks and then you plan to send me a photo of it!!! Is that it??! LOL)

Oh- after reading some of today's comments, let me add - PLEASE don't feel bad if you didn't say thanks yesterday!!! That totally wasn't what I meant!!! I don't want anyone to think that it is, that I wanted you to say thank you. I didn't expect anyone too - I just normally get some kind of comments on my blog and yesterday I didn't!!!

Well - I guess I'm questioning - what is it that you want to see or read about here on my blog? Some days it is really hard to come up with something to blog about... but Ifeel like if I am going to take the time the blog - I want it to be worth the time that you are going to take to read it! If that makes sense!!

Why do you visit?!?!

Is it the Terms Restricted Files that you get to download (without having to buy them at Paperthreads? Is it the shopping tips? The product reviews? You like to hear about my boring life?

I guess in trying to keep your interest - the question for today is ~ "Why do you visit my blog??"

Hope to hear from you!
Until Next Time!

Cya ~

Wow, I guess I was inconsiderate because I didn't thank you. Thanks! I still have to print the supply list and instructions but I fully intend to make one.
Anyway, I visit because I think you have a great wit and humor about everything...you are REAL.

I look forward to visiting your blog because it gives me a sense of happiness. I smile when I see your picture with the camera. I know you have a glowing personality because it shows in that picture. I enjoy reading about the products you use. I live in a rural area, so that limits supplies that I can shop for locally. I love to hear of products that I have never seen and can order over the internet.

I would say it's all of the above. I like the files that you share, the great shopping tips (which is a huge timesaver for me), the product reviews and hearing about what someone else is doing (it's like a sanity check if you will!!!).

I have thought about a blog for myself, but I have no idea what I would talk about and if anyone would ever care, but I love to read others. I visit yours' and Chris' everyday.

Thanks for posting the link to make the organizer--it is awesome and so Amy's blog. As for what I like to see on your blog--I'm interested in basically anything. I loved hearing about your leaky ceiling--not because I was happy it happened, just because it is a good reminder that sometimes other people have chaos in their lives too! I just love reading your blog--it, like Chris', makes my day! Thanks for all you do!

I'm a daily reader, mostly for the terms-restricted-file for my underused wishblade. I'm a busy mom of 3 young kids so not too much crafting going on, but I like to get ideas and eventually I'll get going at it again. Sort of like hanging out with FIT friends, maybe someday I'll start exercising like them!! I didn't get a good feel or idea of what that stand was or used for. Don't think that I need one I guess.

I enjoy your humor! My blog is only to post photos of our kids for our parents, no humor there. I'm boring and I need to lighten up, huh?

Lori McDonald August 22, 2007 at 2:06 PM  

Oh - please don't think you are inconsiderate Tina - I totally didn't mean that!! I'm sorry if it seemed that way!!! Really!!!

I am just to some kind of feed back and then when there was none... I am like hmmm - what should I be blogging about!!!

Thanks for your feedback today though!!!


Tina August 22, 2007 at 2:56 PM  

No, I totally didn't get that vibe at all, please don't think I did. But, I am disappointed in myself for not being considerate (something I am trying to teach the boy, ya know.) I can't expect him to do it if I don't.
My point is, don't you feel bad for a second...this is my baggage, girl!!!

Lori - I have been stopping by your blog daily for the past month. I like your insight on life - it doesn't seem like you let anything get you down. I thought your tribute to your DH on his birthday was so kewl and I was hoping to hear what his response was. I also like the product reviews and your movie reviews. I didn't know you offered cutter files until this most recent one so I guess when you post one of those, I'll probably download them as well.

GeorgiaC August 22, 2007 at 3:39 PM  

Lori, SHAME ON ME! I was so thrilled to get the info, I grabbed it, printed it and ran. So Sorry. Why do I come? All of the above...your humor, your ideas, your skills,your files, your reviews. Guess it's just YOU.
Hope to meet you on a certain upcoming cruise in February. True??

Hi Lori,
I love your product reports and your creativity. The way you see and use items/files/images, etc. opens my eyes to new ways of looking at/doing things.
And the files aren't bad either! ;)

I started visiting your blog when Chris promoted it. I continue because I enjoy your company, and ideas. AND the free files too. It is a fun way to share something that I love with someone that understands why! And, lastly, you (and Chris, and the wishbladers group ) are good medicine for me. Having something that I WANT to do each day helps with my depression, more than the pills that I am taking.
You didnt realize that you guys could touch someone THAT much, did you? LOL
You do. Thanks.

I check to make sure you aren't blaming me for anything over here. and that you don't have some product listed that I have to have.

See what you have started, tons of feedback.. I often wonder what makes people go to blogs. Most often you dont know the person. Could it be a cyber connection, being able to peak in to someones life a little with out the drama that goes with our freinds, or family. I just started reading blogs, when i found chris blog. I started going for the files and then became hooked, like a soap. Checking in daily to see whats going on in her life, how is the family, horses, ect. Now i have added your site to my daily read. I love your thoughts on movies, web site links. HELLO already bought from the $1 site twice. I will comment more often.. Thanks.. Angie

Hi Lori-

Thanks for the directions. I was out yesterday, but I plan on making the spinning rack. And I'm not waiting for my husband to make it!! And both those sites are awesome!!!


hamnrye August 23, 2007 at 2:06 AM  

Cause you're cool. That's my son's favorite phrase. I love the files, love the shopping tips, love the movie reviews, but especially love reading about someone who obviously loves life and always makes me smile:) (even when I lost my dongle and thought life was over) You are a very talented person with your cutter and your personality. So keep bloggin!
God bless,

Lori McDonald August 23, 2007 at 7:05 AM  

Thanks guys, I really appreciate the feed back....

Some days I think we all question what we are doing, and why we are doing it!!!

I will just keep on keeping on.... I know your time is vaulable - so I wanted to make sure I was giving you what you wanted/needed!!!

You are all the best blog readers ever!!!! :)

Well Lori, I missed your plea yesterday so this is a little late. I too was one of the girls who didn't say thanks....oooops THANKS! I'm not sure I'll ever make the spinning rack but I love both links RMC and Amy's Blog. I did give you credit for sending me there. But why do I come to visit??? I think that was your question. Well I LOVE LOVE LOVE FREE stuff,advice sale hints and files. I have Chris' Blog as my home page so I don't miss a free file. I haven't caught one of yours yet, but one day I will. The biggest reason I stop by is because I look for inspirations, you always provide pictures with your tips and links, very helpful. I LOVE your attitude, I remember when you first came to paperthreads and I adored your style. I used to purchase Shirley's files because they were SO adorable,and I haven't cut one yet! So I appreciate the free files. When I need a file I know where to go...Paperthreads designer's are the best!!! Another reason, as if I need more, Your picture up in the corner is too funny, it reminds me of the lady who hooked me into stampin' up and now into scrapbooking. Silly reason huh? It makes me feel connected I visualize your personality just like hers. And finally I have certain bloggers I just like to keep up with, I used to go to paperthreads just to hear what the girls were talking about for the day, I'm a stay at home Mom, I provide child care for 12 children who are not mine, and I get very little adult conversation. I turned of "Satellite Sisters" on the radio and tuned into crafty blogs on the web. So if I never say it again....we have a saying around our house "It Goes Without Saying" THANK YOU! Keep up the good work. Gee I almost forgot, I like the little tributes to your husband too. Not enough of us are in good relationships, it's refreshing to hear the positives.
