With 61 days left until my 2nd Blogoversary, I noticed in this morning's email these 'stats' from SiteMeter.
       Small Reflections Site Summary

It's hard to imagine my Small Reflections blog has had so many visitors and page views, but I'm truly grateful my efforts to share have been so well received. What I've come to understand is that many more 'visit' than comment. With this in mind, I offer this token of my appreciate (in two variations) to all who visit & comment ... to snag, enjoy, and share with others as you choose. You're also invited to check out Blog Rolls & Bling where you'll find other awards I've created and shared previously. I'm not much for 'rulez' but I would enjoy knowing who accepts &/or passes the awards along so I can visit too ... just because ;--)

At left, Original's (straight out of the camera) and with Poster Edges on the right.

To all the 'lurkers' out there, I'm glad you've discovered my blogs and invite you to take a moment to say 'howdy-do' so that I can visit you in return.

Ms. Kitty is lovely (and deserves her own CC day)! I love her *dark auburn* fur!

Sara Chapman in Seattle said...

That is so fascinating of you to share the blogstats. Thank you for that. I went to the HRGal site to view the shadows, but for the life of me could not find where to leave a comment! I do like the regular version best, by the way. Interesting contrasts among the 3 and neat photos.

i beati said...

they contrast each other well

Sara Diana said...

I love animal pictures. WE have a black cat in our neighbourhood but she is alot smaller than yours. She is a mean mouse and rabbit catcher despite her size. She is lovely x

jabblog said...

Good to see Ms Kitty taking the stage - cats can be Soooooooo overshadowed by their canine companions ;-)

EG CameraGirl said...

I enjoy your collages. ;-) Today your blog is reigning cats and dogs. (Silly, I know)

Well, hello there, Ms Kitty! I have an all white momma cat named Kit! hehehe

You asked about the tree in my photo, it's a Dogwood tree & blooms in the spring - there's no blooms on it now, that pic was taken in the spring of this year.

Thank you for visiting & commenting - I appreciate it & your compliment on my header photo, too!

Congrats on so many visitors to this blog. I have been on Blogger since January 09--and have about 24,000 hits. That is amazing, isn't it??? But--I just have ONE blog, and I don't do memes -which 'they' say will bring even more visitors.. I have a hard enough time keeping up with the ones I have. ha ha

Your blog is GREAT.. I'm pleased to be part of it!

Cezar and Léia said...

Janie said...

Miss Kitty is a gorgeous critter. Molly looks so much like Daisy! I'm sure they'd enjoy playing together. We had a "Molly" for 14 years. She was a black lab, beloved by all.

Maude Lynn said...

In my next life, I want to be Ms. Kitty!

Pam said...

I really enjoy visiting your blog, so I can see why your blog stats are high.
I have many more visits than comments too. I really like those comments though! : )
Great pictures. Miss Kitty is "purr-fect."

James said...

Ms Kitty is a beauty. I used to have an all white cate named Mr.Kitty can you imagine the pair that they would have made. :-)

Wonderful pictures!

Beautiful animals.

Susan Cook said...

Hi to Ms. Kitty and Molly! I like that poster effect too. Congrats on your almost 2nd blogaversary. That's great you've had so many visitors. :)

Inday said...

Knowing that visitors keep coming to your blog is something of an impetus and makes us feel good, one way or another.

Ma'am I wonder if I could ask favour from you. I do have difficulty with tiny fonts and if it's okay to embiggen them?

To your Layout, go to Font and check the Text Font, highlight it, then to the right, you will see fonts option which is not a problem but you can enlarge it or make it small.

Easy for my old eyes ...:)

Thank you very much.

You have a great menagerie of critters! :) Blogoversary soon? How fun!
