THIS IS POST NUMBER 5,000!!!
I started this blog in 2005 -- mainly to help family stay up-to-date on our infertility journey. It was called "Life in the Polar North" then because we were in Minnesota and I was freezing my tooshie off like a crazy woman so my husband could go to medical school at the Mayo Clinic.
Life has taken us far since then. We moved to the panhandle of Florida, then Turkey, and now the Azores.
We went from a childless couple -- to a couple with a dog and then a couple with one, two, three, and now FOUR children!
So in celebration of my 5,000th post, I wanted to ask YOU the people who READ my blog to do me a favor.
You've been reading the details of my life for a long time. I have over 200 followers and get about 400 hits a day which is about 12-15,000 a month. But I don't often know many of the people who read my blog. So, even if you are only an occasional reader: Would you leave me a comment?
Yes, this means even YOU Mom. It means my best bud Kristi and to you, the person who only comes over once a month and scans and has never left a comment. If you EVER read, I am asking you to leave a comment!
Here's what I would like YOU to tell ME in your comment:
1. Your name (if you are okay with that)
2. Where you live
3. When you started reading
4. Why you have kept reading
5. Something interesting about yourself
6. And if you remember, tell me one of your favorite posts that I have written or maybe a subject matter or something else that you like about the blog
All righty folks ... ready ... set ... go!
P.S. I am attempting to respond to each commenter individually, so check back to see my response.
