Blog Followers!

Do any of you check this blog once a week, once biweekly, or even once a month and find it somewhat stimulating and profound? Why not take the plunge and become a follower. I have recently been pondering the reason why I have this blog in the first place, and I think it might have something to do with my sanity. If that's the case, then I likely have an unhealthy dependency on blogging. I only want to depend on one thing in life. On the other hand, if the true reason I keep this blog is to keep friends and family back home and here in China up to speed with life, then it's a blog not wasted. So, all this to say, I want to have at least 25 followers by the end of June. If this goal is reached, I will consider it a blog not wasted. If this goal is not reached, I will bid adieu to blogging.

I'm not going to become a follower of your blog, but as an FYI, you already have 20 people (myself included) subscribed to your blog and reading it through Google Reader. Consider your blog not wasted.

We check your blog almost every day and enjoy reading your comments and seeing the area where you live and travel.

How do I become a follower? I try to check once a week but sometimes I forget. I love reading it though. It's a picture into another culture and life that I have not experienced...plus then when you come home I feel like I know a little bit about what you've experiences. Keep blogging!

Hey, Portia. I don't think I show up as an official "follower" on Blogger, but I do have your RSS feed plugged into my Google Reader account. This means, basically, that if you've posted something new, the title of your blog shows up in bold type, and I can read your newest posts immediately.

So, count me as a follower.

I looked for a place to become a follower of your blog but couldn't find it. But I check your blog often ... like almost every day.

Love it!

I follow you Portia! I really liked blogging as it helps me reflect on all these 'new' situations as we travel and remain connected to others to share our experience. miss you!

Of course I read your blog. It's one of my breaks before I settle down to essays, grading, tests, etc. Love you and look forward to seeing you this summer. Enjoy your time with Dale and Ruth. Diane

I don't really know how to be a follower or what that actually means (I'm not blog savvy and have gone against the grain by not starting a blog with posts about our new baby!) but I catch up about once a month and your posts always make me giggle and miss you so much!

Portia - Not only am I an almost daily reader of your blog, I have listed your blogs as one that I follow on the "As the Page Turns" blog that I do for the Freeman Public Library's On-line Book Discussion Group.

I love your blog. Keep the reflections coming!
