"15,000 Hits Giveaway"


Hello.....Why didn't anyone tell me that I hit 15,000 views? I am almost at 15,500. Wow, I can't believe it. It was only two and a half weeks ago when I was at 10,000. Thank you so much to everyone who checks out my small piece of cyber space. I would like to thank you by giving away these two mini scrapbook kits and a pack of chip board embellishments that match. They are made by Nancy's Boutique. I have a couple and they are pretty neat. They are 6 x 6. You can keep it for yourself or make it for someone else. I haven't decided what to do with mine yet. I don't have any good questions, or any clever contests so maybe you could tell me if you have a blog and how many blogs do you visit. I will use the random counter to pick the winner on Saturday at midnight West Coast time and announce the winner on Sunday. Thank you again for visiting my blog and for all the wonderful comments you have made.

I have a blog at SunnyWL.blogspot.com which I update from time to time with cards, not much though. You are giving away nice blog candy, thank you for sharing! I look at approx 30+ blogs a day (GoogleReader informs me when they are updated)

Hello! Congratulations on the hits! I just started a blog and I only have 300 hits! :) It's at www.cakvd2.blogspot.com if you want to check it out. I love looking at all the scrapbooking, stamping, and card making blogs out there. There is just so much to learn! Thanks for a chance at the awesome prize!

Steph said...

I do have a blog and I'm pretty sure you've been for a visit. :) As for how many blogs I read....far too many but it is so addicting and inspirational at the same time.

Heather Leech said...

I don't have a blog...I don't have enough time 'cause I spend way to much of it reading other people's blogs!! Congrats on the hits!

Heather said...

I do not have a blog and I spend way too much time reading other's blogs, but can't help myself. I just love the ideas that I get this way -- besides it is comforting to know there are other stamp crazies like me out there!

Keep blogging -- love your creations! :)

Lilian said...

Melissa said...

Congrats Rochelle!

I have a blog and I'm embarrassed by the number that I frequent every day. Let's just say Google Reader is a life saver!!! :)

Linda SS said...

I don't have a blog, but if I were more computer-saavy and could figure out how to do it, I would. I really enjoy reading others. I have about 15 favorites and spend much more time link surfing from the recommendations of my favorites.

Snuppeline said...

Hi! Congratulations on that huge amount of hits!
I have my own blog, it's a cardmaking/what-is-going-on-in-my-head blog from my little corner of the world. It's a nice way to share my style of cardmaking with others and even better; make new friends all over the world.

I spend more and more time looking at others blogs. It is a way of getting new ideas and inspirations and see whats going on in the different parts of the world cardmakingwise. Have a nice day!

Shannon said...

Hi, I visit about 10-20 blogs. I jump around a bit from those and I end up all over the place!! I don't have a blog and that is probably a good thing. I would never get off the computer!!
Great job on your blog and all your work. Thanks for the chance for that yummy treat.

Kirsi said...

Hi and greetings from Finland. I have a blog written in Finnish and English. I visit about 20-30 blogs daily and much more occasionally. Have a great day!

Jan Scholl said...

I have a blog and I get the feeds from over 260 now and always find more to peruse on a weekly basis. MOst are paper arts but a good portion are for vegetarians. I cyber dine at 2 AM.

rebecca said...

I subscribe to about 12-15 blogs, but visit others that are mentioned in those. I can spend all day on the computer just going from blog to blog, enjoying the reading and creativity. I don't have a blog and can't imagine how people find time to do them. It's all I can do to keep up with e-mails, housework, the garden, family, etc. I'm not Super Woman after all. Oh, woe is me.... Great job on your blog. I enjoy it.

Angel said...

I do have a blog...http://angel2stamp.wordpress.com/ and I am a huge blogger....in fact, I really need to cut back. I can't stop coming back to my computer even if I have deadlines looming....so I should start out saying..."Hello, my name is Angel and I'm a blogaholic!"

Jules said...

Hi there from sunny Australia!
I have a blog But am relatively new to the whole thing.
I am not usually a comment leaver. More of a stalker!!!
I wouldn't like to think of the amount of blogs that I visit daily. Too scary!!!!LOL
ENJOY
Jules

Denise said...

Oh my goodness, I DO have a blog (http://isittuesdayyetma.blogspot.com/) but the number of blogs I visit grows every day...I think I am up to 25 that I actually subscribe to and who knows how many I just look at a day!

KIMBERLY said...

Wow! That's a lot of hits! I'm pretty far from 15,000 but I'll get there some day! I love visiting your blog! I visit to many blogs to count! I do it first thing in the morning. It's like my cup of coffee.

Tami said...

I have a blog (which I believe you subscribe to) at http://journeyoflifetamijo.blogspot.com

I read too many blogs to count- I do more reading than stamping (however, now that school is out that will hopefully change).

scfranson said...

Congratulations!
I don't have a blog but visit about 30 every chance I get.

Lorie said...

Well, I love your blog so I'm not surprised you are banking up the visitors. You know I have a blog but for everyone else come see me at http://www.live-love-laugh-create.blogspot.com/. I visit about 20 or so blogs as often as I can. Great blog candy. I REALLY hope I win...these will make great grandma gifts! :0)

foodpartyfun said...

No blog here, but love yours! I visit... let's just say quite a few. My stamping inspiration comes from all you wonderful blogging stampers.

Elaine said...

Hello Rochelle,
Thanks for the fun stuff you share! I do not have a blog (My camera cord is missing to transfer pictures - and has been lost for a long time)-- :(
I visit roughly 15-20 blogs a day sometimes I go to more if there is time.

Kristina Lewis said...

Congratulations! I have a pretty new blog http://kristinaalewis.blogspot.com/
I have blog candy going on now also. I love visiting blogs. I spend way too much time on this task, but it is so inspiring! I love your blog and blog candy!

L8ybug2 said...

Congratulations on the hits! I am subscribed to 100+ blogs. I read all the ones that are updated in my email every day. I have a blog at http://ritasstampart.blogspot.com
Besides card making I love to scrapbook....Thanks for offering the great candy.

Carolyn said...

I personally don't have a blog, I have been thinking about it and my 16 year old daughter thinks I should but I don't think I would make a very good blogger (too busy looking at everyone elses,LOL) I visit around 65 daily. Yours is great. Congrats on the hits.

Pam said...

Congratulations for over 15,000 hits! I don't have a blog myself. I love stamping and scrapbooking, spending time on SCS and visiting blogs. But I try to keep it to under 10 blogs that I subscribe to (I have to clean house sometime)and yours is one of them! Sweet blog candy,too-

Susanna said...

Congratulations! You do great work -- of course people are coming to read your blog!

I do have a blog -- www.barefootstamper.com, and I think it's really a fun way to share what you love.

I susbscribe to maybe 20 blogs -- some through feedblitz and some through the Google RSS feed. I waste a tremendous amount of time surfing when I should be doing other things. Stamping is definitely to blame for my dirty house!

Debi said...

Hi Rochelle, Contrats on all this blog hits! I found you thru Kim Howard's blog - I'm so glad I did! Your works is great! Thanks for sharing! Happy Stampin! Debi

Jenn said...

Way to go on your counter for your blog! Doesn't surprise me though, as I love your blog! I would have to admit to spending WAY TOO much time reading blogs throughout the day. Perhaps 30, and I do not have a blog. How could I possibly have time to read all of them AND maintain a blog?!

Melissa Roth said...

Nope - No blog yet, but I'm getting lots of inspiration to start one. I read about 50 on days when I'm not working.

Sara said...

You know I love your ideas and you have such a great blog, no surprise to me you have over 15,000 hits. Great job, keep up the good work.

Amie said...

I check out around 35 blogs per day, plus whatever contests Allison lists on her site. I've found some great sites that way! Great work! Thanks for the blog candy offer!

Rosella said...

Congratulations on your hits! You don't have to be surprised. We all enjoy coming here and seeing all the great projects you come up with!

Amy said...

That is cool. I'm getting close to 1500 (tee hee). You are a super star! Hope you have a great day and thanks for a giveaway. that is a fun bonus to your already great stuff!

Alex said...

Wow that is a lot of hits, I do have a blog it is www.sillybirds.blogspot.com and would love it if you popped on over and had a look and maybe signed my guestbook at the bottom - have a great day

Rhonda said...

Rochelle - WOW! 15.500 comments! What an accomplishment. Your blog is wonderful! I have a brand new baby blog called "A Work In Progress" at http://www.navywifearmymom.blogspot.com/ I only have one comment - YOURS!!

Pattyjo said...

I do not have a blog. Once I had a live journal and kept it for several years. It seems the older I get the harder it is to find the extra time to maintain a blog or journal. LOL
Your blog is wonderful and congratulations on the milestone!

Rhonda L. said...

Hi, I don't have a blog, but I have many programmed into my favorites, & read them as often as I can.

I love to read blogs and spend way too much time doing it...but it is so inspiring and so much fun. I have them on my blog, in my feeds, and email updates. I'm a blogaholic!! TFS

doverdi said...

I read way too many blogs these days and seem to do more reading than creating. lol Besides all my stamping blogs that I love, I also have a huge growing list of scrapbooking blogs too. I don't have a blog yet but I think it's just a matter of time before I start one. I have probably about 20 that I read faithfully. I so appreciate your sharing your time & talent with us. I get so much inspiration from blogs & have learnt so many new & amazing things. Thanks for sharing.

Patty from Ohio said...

I wish I could get brave enough to have my own blog! You do such a great job and I get so many ideas from all the blogs I visit daily! But how do you find the time?!?

Trini said...

I am a newbie but have a blog at sentsart.typepad.com. Your's was one of the first ones I found and continue to visit daily... thanks for the inspiration

Kraftin' Kimmie said...
