Hey, That Sounds Familiar ...

I like to occasionally look at my blog stats. One of the best pieces of information they provide to me is how people are coming to the blog. Earlier this month, I noticed I was getting several visitors coming from Kathy’s Remodeling Blog.

Well, I love other people’s blogs, especially DIYers, so I had to check this out. I've found that it’s a fabulous way to discover new blogs and made many finds this way. (So, make sure you click that link and check out Kathy’s site!)

Boy, am I glad I did! Not only did I find a kindred spirit in the home improvement circuit, but I found out that both Kathy and I had snagged an award from InteriorDesignCollege.org. (Turns out when I checked my email the next morning, I’d been sent a note from the website, too.)

We were both named among their picks of the Top 50 Home Improvement Blogs.

Somehow, This D*mn House landed in the Top Five. Some of my favorite housebloggers are among “the rest of the best.” Thumbs up to all my DIY brethren and sisthren on the honors!

I’m always both shocked and humbled when someone nods at the blog. Both it and the house are labors of love and true extensions of me, so I take that stuff a little personally. Affirmation is always welcome.

Thanks so much.

Congrats on making it in the Top Five! I was amazed to see I'd made their list, although further down.

Thanks, Jayne! Like I said, a lot of MY favorite bloggers are on that list, too! ;-)
