I know many of us in the bloggie world have been receiving e-mails of our blogs being listed on "Top Blog" lists & such. It's fun to be recognized because blogs do take time, energy, and heart! However, I wonder sometimes about the motivation of such awards. Some may just be trying to increase their hits by connecting to our loyal blog followers. Though, I have had many hits come from these sites...so I guess it does work both ways!! ha ha I kind of appreciate the lists I find my blog on where the individual/company did not contact me. I just found one today from Canada! I'm thankful for Sitemeter. Lets me know a bit more about those visiting my site. I found one of my lessons popping up on several French blogs over the past month!!! That's kind of strange...and cool! What are your thoughts??
