goals are good

Everyone should set goals for themselves. Most people do so at the beginning of a new year. Today I am setting a goal for my blog. It is a short-term goal that is to be accomplished by the end of this year, and I need YOUR help to achieve it!

As of this very moment, I have 976 comments posted to my blog. These are an accumulation of 15+ months of blogging and a total of 442 posts. Nearly half of those comments are from me (me, commenting back to you – the kind and thoughtful souls who leave me messages and questions).

My goal is to have 1,027 comments by midnight, December 31, 2010. That averages out to only about 1 and 1/2 comments per day. Since almost half of those will most likely be from me, back to you – I only need 26 comments left by you, my faithful and very valuable readers, in the next 32 days.

Can we do it? Yes, we can! I know you won’t let me down, I know you care about me and the importance of this, my lofty goal. So I shall thank you in advance for your continued kindness and support!  Oh, and if you are in the Phoenix area, you can watch my S’Mores Party clip on Channel 12 Valley Dish today at 3:30. It’ll only be a couple of minutes long, so don’t blink or you might miss it! Thanks again! xoxo

I bet you will blow your goal out of the water! You have the best blog out there. Have a wonderful week.

2 Carol { 11.29.10 at 11:19 AM }

I love your blog and I wish that I could eat at your house every night!!!

3 Mrs. Tuna { 11.29.10 at 12:32 PM }

Sure I’ll leave a comment, I was actually surfing looking for cooking lessons for my 13 year old niece.

OK, I’m helping you out here. Since I didn’t comment about your Black Friday party right away, I’m now saying it sounded like a blast. You are some party-giver gal. Love you.

I’ll give you lots of comments too. And Carol – it is definitely great to eat here every night. I never want to move out.

6 Marissa { 11.29.10 at 9:03 PM }

P.S. I love that picture of the kitten.

7 Bonnie F. { 11.29.10 at 9:26 PM }

Of course I will support you!! I think that each time we make one of your recipes we should comment on its success/not quite success. I find myself coming to your blog for advice on a very regular basis. I usually need ideas for what I should do with the goodies I get weekly from bountifulbaskets.org.

OK, I’m one of those lazy people who reads your blog every day and never sends a comment (even when you offer us prizes at cooking class!).So thank you Linda for helping me start my day!

9 Linda Hopkins { 11.30.10 at 6:55 AM }

Thank you Amy, Bonnie, Carol, Sharon, Mom, Mrs. Tuna and my beloved Marissa, for all your kind comments! Even though they were heavily solicited I appreciate them very much and am grateful for your efforts to help me achieve my goal. But even more, I am so thankful for your time and attention to reading my blog! xoxo

Your blog is one of the highlights of my inbox! I so look forward to reading it every morning, even though cooking and I don’t do well together! You have given me many great suggestions and helpful hints to pass along to Trent! As an added bonus I’ve gotten to know the Hopkins Family even better! Thanks

11 Audrey Larsen { 11.30.10 at 11:03 AM }

I always look forward to reading your blog, Linda, it truly is one of the best ones out there! A million thanks for all the recipes, ideas and inspiration!

12 Lisa { 11.30.10 at 11:31 AM }

I love your blog–look forward to it every day…and, for any of you who are making these fabulous recipes, I am available to be your taste tester:)

13 Linda Hopkins { 11.30.10 at 12:19 PM }

Audrey, (my newest BFF, and from the Pacific NW, no less) and Rainy and Lisa (just two of my MANY fabulous friends and neighbors – We do have THE best neighborhood!) I thank all three of you for your sweet, complimentary, and feel good comments! Love, kiss, and thanks! xoxo

14 Ronnie Jaap { 11.30.10 at 2:35 PM }

Linda — I love your blog too! But, like Amy, I don’t always leave a comment. I make a mental note to try this and that and love to surf your recipes and tips and ideas. I’m always telling other about your Blog and how lucky I am to call you friend! R
