*The winner of Jenny Goebel's Grave Images is listed below*
Okay, so I haven't been the best at leaving comments lately, and I know I've missed out on some great posts by you all. Part of that is due to juggling two little ones at home, which has significantly cut down on my computer time.

Part of that is also because I don't check Blogger every day to scroll through posts. And if I miss a day or two of doing that, chances are, I won't go through enough of them to see older items (kind of like when you follow a ton of people on Twitter, it's easy to miss a tweet here or there).
Now, what I DO check every day is my email. I love, love, love when bloggers have an easy-to-find FOLLOW BY EMAIL button (which is exactly the reason I added one to my own blog a month ago). That way, post titles show up in my email box. Even if I don't have time that day (or even that week) I tend to save posts that catch my eye and read them when I have time to play catch-up.
My big suggestion (and it might be a no-brainer to some of you savvy bloggers out there, but it's a new revelation to me) to increase blog traffic is:
*Add a FOLLOW BY EMAIL button to your blog if you don't already have one
*Put it somewhere highly visible on your blog
