My life is about living with nature – here you can live it with me!

100,000 views and then some!

It just seemed like yesterday when I reported 10,000 views and it is hard to believe that I am at 100,000 views already. THANKS EVERYONE!

With so many new visitors . . . . I find myself struggling keeping up with the new blogs of those who now regularly visit this site. Some are getting added to my RSS feeds but not to the blogroll! Please feel free to use this post to let me know if you would like me to add your site to my blogroll or maybe any new changes you might have to your already posted url.


Just before going to bed last night I was only within a few visitors of reaching 100,000 views. I kept watching my stats and when I finally reached 99,999 . . . . I found that Grace (ninehtotoo5) had “just” comment on the Nature Haikus by E post. I continued to wait and 10 minutes later the blog reached 100,001 views (two views, sweet). I quickly checked to see if anyone commented and I found 2 new comments in my spam filter! As expected my 100,000th and 100,001th views went to spammers! ! ! I sure hope those spammers have learned something on my site and since I started blogging I have deleted almost 10,000 of their unwanted comments!!!  Uggg

THANKS EVERYONE! You all are soo special to me and it is YOU who have helped make this blog as wonderful as it is!! Many more thanks to the many guest bloggers who have helped me with this site (which most . . . not all are under the age of 15)!!

  15. Congratulations!! Your blog is worthy of such popularity. Keep it up, you are making naturalists out of all of us. We just joined the Erie National Wildlife Refuge. Our interest in nature and birds have really piqued since reading nature blogs, especially yours.

    yay Mon@rch! wooooo!

    This is such an interesting blog and what I love best is you have a new post for almost every day. You actually inspired me to start my own nature blog, not that I can out-do yours. You also inspired me to learn more about naturalists and bird banding. I signed up for a local organization but they don’t do anything till spring.

    I didn’t even know about that spam thing and I checked mine and I had 13 already…most of them about “enhancing pills” if you get my drift. *sigh*
