A new comment and a new reader

Two new commenters today and One of them a proper reader I think ! Always so exciting for a blogger like me with a small but loyal ( I think , judging by my figures ) readership , or should it be visitorship , maybe people come to look at the pictures ....
Im always intrigued as to how people find me in the first place . Many arriving by accident having Googled something odd by chance and landing on the site and moving swiftly on . And most people don't comment , either because they dont care to , they dont know how , or they're lurkers by preference .
I read a number of blogs myself , most of them American and find that most of them have many many regular commenters , and many of them have vast numbers of visitors too especially the famous ones which have been featured in the press which is how most of us knew about them in the first place .
I've concluded that we Brits are very reticent about leaving comments so I am just so happy when someone passing through and hopefully coming back ( like Joan from the Midlands ) leaves a comment and introduces herself . I love the feeling of knowing that someone is reading and something about her life , and next time I'm in Berwick I will know to post a picture .
And of course I stay ever grateful to the continuous support of regular commenters like the wonderful Bette Jo who is always here ....

HI thankyou I think I got your link from Blog awards website, I adore animals pets and wild animals, Your pets look so well loved, and bobbijo (Bj to her friends) is very much apart of our family
we have fond memories of Northumberland, stayed in Berwick and near Alnwick (also a week in Newcastle General when my husband broke one of his neck bones!) So was pleased today when our son mark was told he was going to berwick next month (thats our holiday sorted)
All the best and carry on with your great blog
Joan

Y'know, I can't remember how I found your blog. Probably by clicking on one of the blogher titles, but I really don't know.
Of course I was attracted by the cats, but I love the way you talk for them, and now Alice.
And too - since I am American, I am intrigued by people and places that aren't.
One funny thing, I simply love the word "whilst". Silly, right? But I don't know an American that uses it and I just love the sound of it. :)
