Who Will Be 50,000? Are You A Comment Queen? (How To Leave A Comment), And Happy Weekend!

This photo from Wag Reflex
A nice site for pet lovers

Do numbers mean anything to you?
My little counter says that I am nearing 50.000 viewings.
I guess it's a milestone of sorts, so to celebrate I'm giving a gift to the visitor who is number 50K!
I don't know exactly know how to determine this, but if you go to the bottom of the right hand margin of the blog, you'll see the little counter thingee. Drop me an e-mail, and tell me what number it was on when you stopped by. It's the honor system, so let's do our best ha ha!
The prize will be ONE Majolica pitcher from my collection.
One pitcher from this
collection will be the prize for
Visual Vamp visitor #50,000

Also some of you are having trouble leaving comments. It's really simple.

  • At the bottom of a post, click on "comments"
  • Write your comment in the little screen with the comment box, and scroll down
  • If you are not a Google member the screen will ask for your User Name, which will be your screen name (like Visual Vamp)
  • It will ask for your e-mail
  • It will ask for a password that you make up
  • If you are a Google member just type in your user name and password after you write your comment, and click on "publish your comment"

That's it!
Once you do that you can comment on any blog in the blogspot system.
Word Press (another blog publisher) has a similar procedure.
It's not that hard, so please give it a try.
While being a comment collector is fruitless, it still is nice to hear from readers.
And you can always drop me an e-mail at

How exciting that you're nearing the 50,000 mark! That's a major milestone in the life of a blog. It takes some years to get anywhere near it. Good for you!

Let's see, the counter says 49,192 right now, so it doesn't look like I'm the winner. Oh, well. Good luck to everyone else! :-)

I found your blog several months ago when I was Googling "Hollywood Regency" design. I had never looked at nor read a blog before, but I signed up for yours. I've so enjoyed everything you post for us, and you've made me want to visit New Orleans. Thank you for taking the time to put together such beautiful, interesting, eclectic messages. I'm learning a lot from you! Merry Christmas. -Carey

Mrs. Blandings sent me...or at least, her blog list did. Glad to have found you! Will still poke around, but glad to see you had a little snow...that your trees are upside down...and you've collected some fun majolica.

Congratulations on almost $50,000. I'm 49,847 but I must head off to bed. The Key West book you have posted in your right hand column looks very good.
