Isn’t that a cool picture? I told my dear husband, the Big Bison, the kind of picture I wanted for this post, and pointed out the microphone I wanted a picture of, and what background from his studio I thought would look cool, but that’s as much credit as I can take. My concept, his execution.

Putting words out there for people to read over the internet is what I like to do. And putting music out there into the world for people to hear is what he likes to do. And when you put sound out through a public address system, sometimes you get feedback. And that kind of feedback is generally pretty painfully bad. It makes your ears hurt. I can remember a time when my ears felt like they had been stuffed with cotton for hours after a particularly horrific explosion from the sound system at a live gig my husband was playing. And THAT, my friends, is not the kind of feedback I am interested in.

But I have noticed that my number of readers is growing, and I want to say, first off, “Welcome!!!!” It’s very gratifying to know that someone out there is taking their precious time to stop by to see what I’ve written. Thank you so much for that!!!” And secondly, would you mind taking a moment to satisfy my curiosity by letting me know where and how you heard of my blog? Sometimes I put up announcements on a couple of different forums I frequent, some of my facebook friends have found me through facebook, but I think others of you have clicked on my link from other sites, and it would help me to know how you found me.

So, if you have just a second, would you mind leaving me a comment in the comment box, and let me know how you first found me? If you want to leave a verbal vote for the kind of things that keep you coming back, I would love to know that, too! Are you drawn here by the personal stories, or the inspirational/devotional type posts, or the recipes, or what? What brought you here, and what keeps you coming back? That’s what I am interested in learning! I WANT YOUR FEEDBACK!!!

Thanks for your help! I so look forward to reading your comments!!!

And, as they used to say on the Beverly Hillbillies, y’all come back now, hear?

  1. You know where I am, and how I found you :-)but I will say what keeps me coming back, outside of being your friend, is the humor mixed with spiritual insight. I've told you this before, but you have quite a way with words and with word pictures.So, keep postin' and we'll keep readin'!Love you!Kristi L.

  2. Susan, I found you at SL and now at FCT. I keep coming back because I like how you look at the world and your faith and genuine-ness is inspiring to me. You are a lovely person and I enjoy what you write.

  3. Really – you want me to tell you how I found you? I stalked you. 🙂 First at SL, now here too. snicker, snicker. I'm KIDDING of course. Cool picture and I'm loving the Beverly Hillbillies theme…makes me want my hubby to get his banjo out PRONTO!!

  4. Hi Susan,I 'found' you on the Sonlight Forums and also on The Flying Cow. I was/am a lurker to afeared to post, but I do enjoy your postings and the humor and wisdom in which you participate in discussions. I also appreciate how you 'know when to hold 'em, know when to fold 'em' in terms of your involvement on topics where you know there's gonna be trouble. You seemed a wise woman and I followed you to your blog where your fulfillment as a child of God and your love of people and life shows itself in your writing. You also make one mean cheesecake. Enjoyed the panzanella too and I'm looking forward to reading and eating my way through future blogs. God bless.

  5. I was just clicking the "Next Blog" button at the top and it brought me here. Looks like a nice blog. Have fun.

  6. Well, thanks for your comment and your honesty, Rick, and, honestly, I have truly been wondering where all these readers and followers have been coming from, and if random it is, then, that's very helpful information to me!Wonder why mine was "next"?

    Well I found you on the SL boards. I was mostly a lurker there and have since gone poof, but things that you would post resonated with me so I came to your blog.Sarah (shera on the SL boards)

  9. Man this is crazy dude (in a good way). Lol

  10. I did the same as Rick. I have only just started a blog and really have no idea what I am doing. I suppose I will get there eventually!!

  11. I did the same as Rick. I have only just started a blog and really don't know how it all works yet. I will get there eventually!!

  12. Well you KNOW how I found you – unfortunately I had no choice in the matter…but sure am glad our parents did. What I can't figure is how you got all the talent in the family…SO not fair! Keep on posting – you do it beautifully – and they will come..

  13. I found you a couple of decades ago….lookin' forward to the next couple of decades….

I plan on coming back when I have more time.I am on a mission to find and follow 10 new interesting blogs a day for a month.I am your new follower and hope you can stop over to my blog and follow me back.My Journey With Candida

  15. Greetings,One of the things you'd like to know is how I found your blog. Simple, clicked "Next Blog" until I found you!Love the blog! So much that I wrote about it…

  16. I was just clicking "next blog" and stopped at yours because of the nice quotation at the top. I suspect we are rather different sorts of people (you seem to have a great deal of faith; I am a skeptic, more or less), and I appreciate your writing style, so I intend to bookmark you and visit regularly, if that's okay. (It probably is, or why would you be blogging in the first place?)

  17. Hi Susan!I've seen you on the SL forum and I just now found your blog searching for TN Sonlighters online! We just moved to Nashville 8 months ago (we currently are in Franklin) from Cusco, Peru and I'm looking for some homeschoolers to hook up with. Where in TN are you exactly? Do you know of anyone in this area I could get in touch with?I'm off to peruse your blog now!jaime 🙂

  18. Hi, Jaime! Send me a private message over on Sonlight!

  19. actually it's my first time here, I was bored so I started hitting the " next blog" button which in itself is a feat not for the squeamish I can tell you first hand. well I read the whole first page of yours, very nice blog. hope you will com visit mine sometime. I live in Florida, am retired, love to cruise on the big ships, play cards with other old women like me and generally love every day I have on this big round thing we live on (I know, never end a sentence in a preposition, right), so live on y'all, okay? smiles, beexoxo
