ashleyrwatts said...

Yay! Congrats, congrats! :D
I thought I was a follower already...but if I was I think I just joined twice! ha!

The best thing about blogging is being able to find others who are interested in the same things as you are. Seriously. There is like, no one around here that I know who is even remotely interested in anything crafty, lol...so it's nice to find some great online friends! :)

oooooo Congrats!! How exciting! I can't wait to get to 500 posts. I think the best part about blogging is that it's like an ongoing diary. I'm loving the idea that one day I can share my adventures with my kids.

Keep up the good blogging!

Goat Creek Grandma said...

Congratulations Carrie! Wow... 500 post... I'm a little ways off from that yet. :)

I love blogging. It is such a great way to meet others with the same interest. I love how we all can share recipes, craft ideas and we can forget the support we give each other.

Take care and here is to 1000!

I love blogs for all the ideas of things I can do myself. I also love to see so much creativity from the ladies! What we can do with a little glue or thread. :)

Debra said...

First of all, I would like to say WOW you are sooo creative and I enjoyed looking through your blog!

I love blogging because it records the stories and pictures of our lives and I also get to meet new bloggy friends! I enjoy surfing blogs and learning things from all of you in blogland, like new recipes, photography tips etc. and it's nice getting a little glimpse of your lives! Unfortunately, I am not very crafty, but I keep hoping that some day I will be. lol

Oh and I just became a follower too! :)

Elise said...

500 posts?!?! Wow!! That is great!!
I have found that my craftyness has exploded since blogging. That is one thing. The other are the friendships. Didn't expect those as much, but I talk daily to a wonderful blog friend who lives in California. Never would have known her otherwise.

Congrats Carrie! Your Blog is Great and I love to pop over to see what you guys are always up to. The Second important thing is that YOU are a GEORGIA BLOGGER! YAHOOO! WE GA bloggers stick together like that...it is the way we ROLL!

NOW on to answer you questions about blogging. Blogging is cheaper than Therapy! NAh just kidding....I love blogging for many reasons. Since we are military people come and go so quickly in my life and this is a way to keep up with them. MY favorite part though became the fact that I started friendships with other bloggers and that has been the biggest joy of all. Like following your blog!
