LOL: The Final Tally

I hope everyone had fun with LOL day on Friday. I know I really enjoyed meeting new friends and getting reacquainted with old ones. Spankos are the best!

We had 83 fabulous blogs participating and 1444 total messages. Hooray for bloggers and lurkers alike!

I guess we'll have to do this again in 2008...

PS - Please be sure to stop by Cassie's Space and wish our dear friend Paul a very happy birthday!

Thanks Bonnie, for organising this and for putting up the stats, that is fantastic. It was a lot of fun and this community really is something else. I feel proud to be a part of it.


Paul said...

Bonnie, next year will be even better, thanks for the stats, I hope that it made the effort worth while.
Bonnie you are something else, over here that's a compliment.
Also thank you for your good wishes.
Warm hugs,

You're a peach, Bonnie. You put such a lot of time and effort into this year's LOL - thank you.

I'm sure a lot of lurkers are feeling a bit more comfortable with these blogs and what they represent. The first comment is always the most difficult. I visited a few new blogs that I intend to return to, and saw from the comments that other readers did the same.

We are truly one huge group of friends, geographically widely separated but emotionally very close.



Thanks so much for the great organisation Bonnie. I de-lurked on some blogs myself and so am looking for new blogs to lurk on. :-)

Already looking foreward to next year.

Hi Bonnie. Love your blog. It was awesome to find you again after all this time.


Bonnie said...

Dixie - You're very welcome!

Dove - I'm delighted to include you and your blog in our LOL festivities.

Paul - I think our effort was worthwhile. We made many new connections and got to know some old friends a little bit better. In the blogging world, that's a big success!

Hermione - Thanks. I hope our dear lurkers do feel more comfortable.

Prefectdt - You're welcome. It was a lot of fun.

Sabrina - Hi! It's a pleasure to hear from you again.

A somewhat belated "thank you", Bonnie, for organising this again this year. It's such a wonderful way for newcomers to take the plunge and introduce themselves, and for all of us to discover wonderful new sources of writing. Thanks so much.
