70,000 Comments!


So my stats counter says
this blog has now received

70,000 comments

since its start almost 
14 years ago in 2008.

Yowza!

Thanks to everyone who has
ever commented over the years!

And special thanks to
all you regular commenters! 



I read and enjoy every comment
that is published!

And I appreciate that all you commenters
are so civil and well-behaved.

Your comments are always 
intelligent, thought-provoking,
insightful and often very funny!

Yes, every once in awhile,
there will be a minor
brouhaha or contretemps
in the comments section --

But even that is not without its fun.


Of course, it's pretty much 
always the same commenter
behind the flying fur (so to speak)
and I think we all know who that is.


But even HRH's contributions towards
reaching this 70,000 milestone
are appreciated!

Here's another. Thanks for your blog and time making us smile! I think my comments must be way up there. I didn't know we had such info.

Bob said...

Congrats on the 70K!!!
Onward!

Frank said...

You must have what it takes.

Boud said...

I went and looked at my own stats, and now I'm back, very impressed with yours!

Marie Smith said...

Congratulations, Debra. I roared laughing at the black cat this morning!

Travel said...

Congratulations! Keep posting and we will keep commenting.

Woot! Congrats on your amazing milestone!

Sixpence Notthewiser said...

Yay!
Wait, there's a counter for comments? I have to look that up!
And breaking up fights in the playroom is always fun.
Love your blog.

XOXO

Lady M said...

You are welcome - your blog is always a joy to consume!

Old Lurker said...

Civil? Well-behaved?? Well, I never...

Bill Lisleman said...

the comments are key to good post. They show your post relates well with the audience. I think it's like laughs for a comedian.

Liz Hinds said...

Well done! You are such a faithful commenter yourself you deserve all plaudits. (I nearly wrote pundits. Words on the brain today.)

Moving with Mitchell said...

Thanks for giving us so many things to talk about, to think about, and to laugh about! And thanks to HRH, as well. I know how much she helps.

Leanna said...

Congrats darlin. It's always fun coming in here when my day is going bad. Your blog picks me up when I'm feeling down. Thanks so much.

Deedles said...

I frequently read, but seldom comment. Should I do better to help you reach your next 70k? I'd do it for you hon.

Magaly Guerrero said...

Here's another one. I know, not very funny. But HRH told me that I must save all my mirth and smirks for her posts. And who am I to argue with the queen?

Congrats on 14 year of comments.

bobbie said...

Congratulations! Your posts always either make me smile or think ~

Bea said...

Your posts are very commentable, if that's a word. :D

Mike said...

Congrats. 100K here you come!

Tasker Dunham said...

That's exactly ten times more than on mine - 7027.

DVArtist said...

Wow that's awesome. Congratulations. Have the best day.

jaz@octoberfarm said...

congrats! i love your blog though we are all becoming dinosaurs!

DB Stewart said...

Happy to be a small part of the ongoing story of you and your life.

roentare said...

That is an incredible amount of comments and interactions you have on the blog. It is something I look up to as well. I cannot imagine that there could be an outbreak of argument in comment sections at all. I thought spam filter would kick in ruining every participant's life.

Joanne Noragon said...

An amazing number. Well achieved.

Tundra Bunny said...

Congrats on your blogging milestone, Debra! It's always a pleasure to sharpen my rapier-like wit on HRH and I must admit, grudgingly, that she is a worthy jouster, LOL!

Richard said...

You are welcome! I feel that i should be saying thanks. I love visiting this place. I always appreciate the altars you make and the things i learn. I appreciate the links i find here.
Without She Who Seeks, i would never be aware of Canadian Hockey Hair Gods, and i would never have made acquaintance with Yellowdoggranny and Spo-reflections, among many others.
You are very welcome.

Contrary Guy said...

Hooray!

peppylady (Dora) said...

I have always enjoy stop in.
Coffee is on and stay safe

River said...

70k, well done. And well deserved, your posts are great.

Kirk said...

Here's one more comment: Congratulations!

LL Cool Joe said...

Congratulations! You deserve every one of the comments you have received, as you put so much effort into your blog!

Adam said...

Congrats that's a huge milestone

pam nash said...

Happy 70,000 Comments to you! It is, of course, because your posts are (to quote someone I've recently read) "intelligent, thought-provoking, insightful and often very funny".

Haddock said...

There is a counter for comments? Never knew that.

roughterrain crane said...

Congratulations!

The Captain said...

Amazing, well done. 👏👏👏

Linda said...

That a lot of comments! Congrats! Your posts invite for a reaction, they are always funny, interesting, thought-provocing. Keep going, to the next 70000!

Mildred Ratched said...

I love to see success in others especially when it comes to writing. I guess that's because I hold writing so dear to my own heart. So CONGRATULATIONS on a job well done and keep writing...always!

Pilar said...

Well done and congratulations!

G. B. Miller said...

Holy cow! 70k comments, and counting?!

Congrats on doing 14 years of consistently way above excellent blogging.

I find it very hard to have a constructive conversation in blogs these days simply because of the very necessary need to moderate, but the few that I've seen have be very Canadian like in the give and take.

Again Congrats to you and HRH for 14 years of blogging.

baili said...

Amazing and witty dear Debra let me say that you are one of the fastest and brilliant commenter i ever saw .i am inspired the way you can do so and i wish i can learn and achieve the level you have as blogger friend and as a commenter :)
Congratulations on achievement my deer friend!
Hugs and blessings

Busy Bee Suz said...

LOL. I was reading your post then I started wondering who the eff was the offensive commenter...HAHA--of course, HRH!

Rawknrobyn.blogspot.com said...

Woot! Woot! You are the best, after all. Tell HRH I said so too!

Anonymous said...

"I read and enjoy every comment that is published." Since you moderate so well, you've probably reached 80k comments once you factor in the trolls and spam. Lol
Thank you for consistently posting content worthy of comment! And for always commenting on everyone else's blogs as well. Blogger Supreme!

That is a fair number of comments. Well done. I like that you have to approve them because then I can send you stuff that you can't post.
