Thank You Dear Readers! #9.

Good morning everyone on this another beautiful morning here at Steve’s Country.  The sun is shining brightly.  There is a light wind blowing.  And it’s supposed to be another warm day before the temp begins it’s downward trend beginning tomorrow.  I hope it will be short lived and that warmer weather will return for a while yet.  But it is August and this is the month of change for us.  Moving from summer to fall, or autumn if you prefer.

But right now I just want to say thank you once again for making Steve’s Country so popular!  I must be doing something right since you enjoy coming back each week for more.  MEOW! 😼 Oops.  That should be ‘we’ must be doing something right. 😽 Didn’t mean to forget Muffin.😀😹

I was going over my stats just now and I went ‘WOW’, that is really quite amazing!  So I wanted to share them with you since all of you are helping to produce these amazing results.  Since January first to this morning there have been 31,594 views, 10,250 visitors, 11,998 comments, 11,797 likes!  I just never expected such amazing results, since last year’s totals were nowhere near these totals and there is almost 5 months left in this year!  I’m thinking now that perhaps I might achieve this year’s goals after all.

Clear and calm river.

But it’s all because of you, our readers, that is making this journey a success!  And we are both very thankful for all of your continued support!!  Plus, we now have followers from 58 different countries and regular readers from 26 more countries.  So that brings the total number of countries up to 84!  And as of today we now have 481 followers total, only 19 away from my goal of 500!

I know that a lot of bloggers don’t like to pay attention to stats, which is fine.  But for Muffin and I living way up here in the north, it’s exciting to check these results now and then.  This is a somewhat remote location with long cold winters.  Like last winter, we had snow on the ground from October 9 to the end of April.  That’s nearly 7 months of winter.  And it was a cold winter.  So stats can be exciting.  And we can see that we are traveling all over the world, that’s really exciting!  And meeting all of you wonderful people and friends, that’s the most exciting!!

So, once again, thank you all so very much for being a part of Steve’s Country, we truly enjoy all the great friendships we have made here!!  Enjoy your day and God bless!

Steve and Muffin.

    • Thank you Nina for stopping by again today, it’s much appreciated. I might stop by your garden again soon. Are you still away or back home again?😁😹🌞🌳🌼


      • We are here for a couple of days and then back out again for another adventure—still Smokey here. Not too bad though. The poor garden! How can weeds grow so fast? But my thumb is much better—took the stitches out. Trying to be careful with it. Yes, please do visit and we can chat. 👍🍦😊

  4. Congratulations! I tried to avoid looking at stats, but I can’t help but to gleam with joy when they increase. It’s a great feeling. I’m glad to see your work reach out too many. And I’m confident you’ll meet your goal with a bonus. Happy Tuesday.

  6. It’s great to see these stats dear Steve and this improvement that has been made 👍😊
    Stats are important, they mean people are actually checking your blog, because at the end we blog for people to read otherwise we can save our writings to ourselves
    Beautiful pictures and good to know that woodpeckers don’t kill the trees, insects do
    Hope your day is great and sunny and weekend will be great as well 🌞🌞😸

    • Hi Huguette! Nice to see you back here again, though I’m sure you would have liked a longer vacation too. Yes, that’s true, stats are important, I want to know if people are reading or not.🤔 Glad you enjoyed the pictures. Looks so nice outside with the sun shining, then I go out there and, wow, it’s cold. Yesterday I wore a jacket all day,😲 most everyone else was too. Much too early for jackets. Oh well. Hope you have a great weekend too!😄😸🌞🌳

      • Thank you Steve 😊 oh yes I wish it was longer but anyway I’ll be having some few days without work since weekend is coming and so 😊
        Jacket during August is really not so cool! Must be some good summer time I guess 😕
        Let’s hope you will have few more days before it gets colder and colder 😸🌞🌞

      • Yes, I like going out without having to wear a jacket, for me that is perfect weather.🌞 This is early to start with a jacket. Oh well. At least it looks warm!😂😂 I’ll be after more pictures today!😁📷🌳😸
