100,000 views!!!

Wow! I happened to scroll down and look at my web counter only to discover that I have reached 100,000 views! That is pretty neat to think about. I have no idea why anyone would be all that interested in this little blog of mine, but I have met some pretty neat and inspiring people through my blog. I have also strengthened my relationship with some friends and acquaintances by our blogs. This blog has been a very good thing for me.

I would love to get to know all of you who visit my blog. I know that I have some lurkers. It seems that my lurkers are the ones that will take the time to write me an email either to introduce themselves or to ask me a question (not that I am a pro at anything), but it sure does feel good to be asked. There have been so many times that I have opened up an email from one of you and it has made me grin from ear to ear. So thank you again, and I promise to either have a post, or a couple of posts trying to answer some of the more common questions that I get.

However, for now, do me a GREAT BIG FAVOR and leave me a comment just saying HI! Let me see who of you are out there reading this little blog of mine. I promise to say Hi back, and to have a big smile on my face when I see each of your names. Remember you don't have to say anything profound in your comment, just a quick hi!

Hi Trina! I'm Sharanya, a 19 year old from India. I do not recall how I chanced upon your blog, though now I know I'll spend the rest of the day puzzling pver it :) I've been reading your blog for about half a year now, and everything about you is greatly inspiring. Thanks for sharing everything you did, and keep blogging!

Sonal said...

Hi Trina,

I am a friend of Sharanya(above commentor). Reading your blog and 'awwwing' about your adorable kids is my favourite thing!:) Very interesting insights and food-for-thoughts!
Looking forward to more!

Hi Trina, my name is Erika and I have a daughter named Arianna. I'd been reading your blog for a year or so. I'd found it trying to find help after having a bit of postpartum depression, do not remember exactly how, but you had some funny and inspiring posts that helped me when I needed. Now, thank God that episode is gone and I can enjoy my baby and I keep your blog closed to my heart. Thanks.

Marisela said...

Wow you have alot of on lookers! I love reading your blog...and it would be something I would enjoy reading even if I didn't know and love you. Keep those posts coming!

Tina said...

Hi Trina!
I must admit that I am another one of your "lurkers" guided here by Sharanya who also left a comment on here... I've been visiting your blog on and off for a little more than a year now, I guess.
Love reading about your happy house but mostly I love seeing you live out that verse in the Bible "As for me and my household, we will serve the Lord." (Joshua 24:15b)
In difficult times, remember that you are the apple of God's eye and He keeps you in the shadow of His wings. (Psalm 17:8)

Peety said...

Hey Trina, I think you could classify me as a lurker, mostly cause I like that title :) but you do get comments from me too...;p

Kim said...

My Dear Sister! You know I have been reading and commenting for a LONG time! Love you and keep it coming!

Trina said...

I must admit that I have been a lurker on a few blogs from here as well....hehehe Thanks for the comments girls!!

meNmykids said...

Hey Trina that is impressive. You always have been popular throughout your life. I also love your blog.

Kalisha said...

Hey Sis. Trina,
I must admit I read you posts, but rarely comment, of course I already admitted to that on my blog, I even have a Poll on the side asking if anyone else is like me. I just never know what to say, or am getting lazy. I don't know.

Hey Trina,
I found your blog through JoAnn, I think? Maybe? I don't remember for sure. Sometimes at night when I'm catching up my emails and doing my online banking, while something is loading I read your updates! Its very illuminating! :) I seem to be almost as busy as you and I only have 3 kids! Wow, you are a supermom. I love homeschooling too. There's nothing like getting to see your children grow and learn new things. My little Holly is almost 10 months, so I think her and your little Boaz are really close to the same age. Isn't it the greatest to watch them grow? It goes so stinking fast!! :( I enjoy getting to see your older boys now and then when they come down for church and other endeavors, lol. My Katie was actually bummed a little when she first met your older three and I told her that they were cousins! hee hee! Well, I gotta go, Holly is awake from her nap, and the other two need some prodding to get school done for the day. I'll probably keep lurking if that's okay! Love, Sis. Dixie

Hi, enjoyed reading your comments.lol

Liberty said...

Hi Trina, I enjoy reading your blog because you have all boys just like I do! :) You just have more. LOL

Steff said...

Hi! It has been a long while, but as you say life has a way of creeping in and taking control.

Geri said...

Hi Trina, I still never miss a post! And I love them all!

Francesca said...

OK, I am a lurker coming out of the closet :) My name is Francesca and we "met" on the pregnancy board when you were pregnant with Boaz (at the begining of our pregnancies). A few of us shared our blogs and I admit I have not updated mine since, but have always enjoyed coming back to read yours! I love it, you are a talented writer. I had 2 girls at the time and was pregnant with my 3rd. I waited till birth to find out I was blessed with another girl on March 4, 2008. She was actually born in our van on the way to the hospital while we were at a red light (and I wouldn't change a bit of the experience!) We live outside of Dallas. If you ever find yourself passing through here, I'd love to meet you and your family for real one day! Thank you for all the sharing you do. Some days it is just what I need to hear!

Laura said...

Hi Trina! How cool to see where some of your readership comes from! I visit your blog frequently and always love reading it. For anyone else's interest, since you know where I met you, LOL, I'm lucky to have met you on a pregnancy board four years ago (Roman and my Kyle).

Chantel said...

I'm not a lurker, but I love reading your blog! Love you.

Where is my Brain said...

hello, just me Tammy Easter.

Heidi said...

Hi Trina,

Roman and Steven are the same age and I have been following you and Nan since I left PW.

Cyndi said...

Hi Trina! Congrats!! That's a cool milestone in blog world!

Neena said...

Okay, so now that you've already written another post, I come to comment. Amazing that you've reached 100,000 views! Did you have the counter on when you first made the blog, or was it later when you added it?

Trina said...

This has been so great to see you guys leave me so much love...thank you!

Neena: I didnt put the counter on right away, but I would say it was close enough. I can't believe I have been blogging this long or that I have had that many views.

Keep bringing me the love girls, because we ALL need it, right? *muah*

Neisey said...

Hello.

Sister D said...

Hey Me too! My computer doesn't always let me on, but when it works I love to spend my morning coffee with you and all my Sisters :)

Tish said...

Wow Trina! I'm really impressed with all the comments you got on this blog! You really do have a way with words, and even if I don't always comment I always enjoy your blog. You have a wonderful way of explaining and describing things.

Hi there! I'm Elisa. I have no idea how I found your blog...but, I've been reading it since you were expecting Boaz. I think I was expecting my four son--and you inspired me that we'd be ok!

We are ok--busy--so I haven't checked back as often as I used to. And, for awhile, you weren't posting much! Fortunately, now was an almost six month old, I am finally able to catch up!

Thanks for inspiring me to raise my little boys!
