saw your entry on AOL and you're right. Comments and visits have dropped horribly for me too. Even if you do a subscriber gadget the 'alert' only goes once a day so most folks won't see it until the following day ... and that is only if they signed up.

hey; I'm back LOL (so pathetically addicted to this journaling)

I haven't had a chance to poke around too much to figure out how to set up alerts, but I'm sure we'll figure it out soon and people will start visiting again

that was funny to see this entry from 2005 and to see my first journal listed there; I admire you for keeping and sticking with the same journal name all these years and not deleting them!!

enjoy the weekend and so glad you got one of the things on your list of things you wanted to see in a grandchild, and what a beautiful one you got :)

Glad to find you here, I will be back. I read a little ahead, or should I say back, and I love your story about following Pam's husband. How scary, how brave, how crazy can one person be? Sorry you didn't bust the scumbag with his mistress.

Oh, a meme. I may try this one later.
I've been using the dashboard for keeping up with entries, it shows the ones you follow in a newest to earlier entries. If someone figures out something easier, PLEASE, let me know.
