What I don't get is the lurking. O.k., I know I have a rather sizeable mouth, and I comment freely in both my out-in-the-world life and my online one. Sometimes, rather more than is absolutely necessary, I'd wager. The upshot is, I have opinions and I'm not shy about sharing them. But it doesn't seem that my chatting proclivities are shared by your average knitblog reader. I ask you, how do 94 new web-surfers visit, and only 1 newbie comments? Thanks to Trish of My Merino Mantra, for being that person. Comments make me feel like someone out there is interested in my drivel. Maybe for the rest of you lurkers out there, I'll have a contest, with prizers, to bring you outta the woodworks. But thanks for at least visiting. End of rant.
If we travel int the way-back machine to when Velma's World was a mere babe-in-the-woods (not the mature babe of today), I joined the webring (got booted 'cuz I didn't write for 3 years; boy, are their rules tough! hee). At that time, their button looked like the one on the left. It has been replaced by the familiar button on the right. Although I used the old one before, I think I'll switch it up and use the new one from now on; more streamlined.
Edited to add: No offense meant to any of my Bloglines or Feedblitz readers, who don't necessarily visit the actual site and therefore don't comment. Thanks, Kari, for the heads up about this issue.
