Boring Old Mole, or is that Moll?

Every couple of years, I put together a little survey for you, dear reader, to fill out. It gives me feedback from my readers which helps me decide which path to take with this little blog of mine.

But before we get to that, I thought I would share with you a few facts about WoogsWorld.

This will be my 2256th blog post published.

My first post was published on the 6th May in 2008, meaning we are turning nine soon! Send bubbles. That is a LONG time in blog-land.

I have been blogging profeshionally for five years and still manage to publish typos, even after I edit my words. Because SQUIRREL.

My stories, during these past five years, have drawn 20,267 comments, with most of them being lovely and helpful, and only a few from meanies. I know I shouldn’t tease them… This is an actual comment…

Mum! I told you not to comment on the blog… Taking back your Christmas Present. You would have liked it. It was a ceramic kitten.

I have met, via blogging and social media, some of the best people who I am lucky to now call close friends.

Blogging has opened doors for me in the writing field that otherwise, would have remained firmly shut.

I am grateful for every single reader that chooses to spend their time reading my site. Thank you. I also get thrilled when you take the time out to email me lovely, supportive things, or tell me that a particular story really resonated with you. I love people and connecting people and think that out of all the things I do in my job, this one gives me the most pleasure.

So thanks again everyone, for all the love and support that you give both to me, and to each other.

No, a favour if I may. Please click on the bottle of Philosophy’s Amazing Grace Fragrance, and if I think I am right (which I may or may not be because I am technologically challenged somewhat) it will take you to a quick, one page survey. Make sure you include your email address if you want to be in the running to win a bottle of this for yourself! Your feedback is gratefully received.

Do you feel comfortable commenting on blogs?

How long have you been reading my site?

    I feel very comfortable connecting on certain blogs. I supposed like when we connect in person, I need to be drawn to a certain something for me to connect with a blog and it’s writer. The interwebz are a pretty incredible thing and there are some people that I feel incredibly close to that I have only ever met via my computer screen. I’ve been visiting you for approximately 3 years now 🙂

    • Well I am pleased to have you here x

  • Donna

    Your survey needs a single with children tick box because its Vic school holidays and am I ever feeling the pressure of being a separated working outside the home mum of two young children.

    I read far more blogs than I comment on. Woogsword is one of the few where I can be bothered.

    Have been reading for years and years. I don’t actually remember when. One of my earliest memories was checking in for a dose of the mundane when I was socially isolated on maternity leave with my youngest. He’s now five but I still remember the pick up I felt by reading a post from a (some what) normal Mum. xo

    • Love that “some what” normal Mum!

  • It depends on the blog. I need to feel some sense of connection – which I do here, even though my boys are grown and gone now. I’ve been stopping by for some years now – three-ish, probably…

    • Well I am happy to have you along!

  • Heidi D

    been reading for years, comment a lot & have done survey 🙂

  • Will head over to survey now. Also, I wrote mole instead of moll on purpose, just saying…(and I’m sure it annoys heaps of spelling and grammar police types)

  • I have lost track of how long I’ve been reading your blog! I would say maybe 2 years? But that means it’s probably been heaps longer because time flies and I’m bad at maths.
    I love to comment on blogs because as a blogger myself, I know how much it means to have someone take the time. Except for that douche that can’t spell moll.

  • Claire

    I’ve been reading along for about 3 years I think. Love your writing, you’re very relateable and crack me up regularly. I’ve completed the survey (because I love a good survey!) and hope to win that bottle of Amazing Grace so I can give it to my mother-in-law whose name is Grace and is amazing! ?

    • Thank you so much Claire! Fingers crossed. Your MIL sounds amazing xx

  • Sally Rose

    Been reading a year, I think. Cover your eyes mrs woog , I find her friendly, funny, self deprecating, very Australian and easy to relate to. You may now look mrs woog.

  • I do. I will be commenting on yours forever and ever.

  • Tracey

    Been reading for a loooooong time. And I comment if I have something to say, particularly when it is not a judgmental something to say. I try to be nice online. Doesn’t always work 🙂

  • I think I have been reading since around the beginning – pretty sure we started around the same time, but you are much more fabulous and prolific than me. And I’m always happy to comment when I’m not being distracted and/or my internet is fast enough. (PS another single with kids here – also on school holidays!) xx

  • I’m much more comfortable now than I used to be! It’s taken me a couple of years to find my voice in the blogosphere and now that I have it’s having time to use it that alludes me. But I don’t think I’ve missed reading a post of yours in about 3 years. It’s your authenticity that inspires me to keep writing. Off to do the survey now. x
