My Top 5 Commenters of 2013

One of the reasons blogging feels so rewarding is because I  know there are real people out there who are reading me. They leave their footprints behind on my page in many ways for which I am grateful.

I feel most grateful to those who comment because they have to read what I wrote a bit more carefully, think about it, organize those thoughts and then write the comment. I value their encouragement and criticism because those thoughts left on my page help me improve.

So when WordPress sent me the annual report for 2013 for bottledworder, I thought I should show my gratitude to all my commenters and especially the five people mentioned on the report.

So here are the Fabulous Five:

Top 5 Commenters, 2013
Top 5 Commenters, 2013

Many a time, her comments have hit the mark so well that I’ve had to exclaim “Wow! She got it!” in my mind. She is a very witty critical thinker and writes on a variety of topics.

Thank you all who read and comment.

  1. What a wonderful surprise to find myself on your list – I’m awed and honoured by your generous comments, and very touched by what you say. Thank you so much.
    I never miss your blog, even if I don’t ( always) comment!! I love your intriguing ‘take ‘ on things…
    Must check our your other recommendations too, best wishes, Valerie


      1. You will be fine. You are a great writer and informative, I would say add a few pieces this year to question the mind so people will ask questions or want to really share their opinions. That would be key. But I shall be personally on over your site though. 🙂


      2. I even want to feature in this mini project I am doing, in which I would so so so hope you will be apart of. It’s a 2 part thing, but I want to write all the details out first so you can see and hopefully agree or not. What may be your email so when done I can drop you a line. 🙂


  2. It’s true, I’m a blabber fingers 😉 Thank you so much! for the generous words, and the link. I love your blog, you’re an excellent, insightful writer and I always value your posts. 😀


  3. That was very nice for me to wake up here on the West Coast and see my name on this list. Yes, I am and continue to be a long time reader of your blog. Your blog is original and unique while being very relevant and relatable. I love that. And whether or not I comment, I always read ( or skim and save for later when life’s stresses get in the way). It’s good to know that bw will always be there, for me to read and peruse; skim and file; and smile. Thank you.
