J-Blogs First Anniversary
We can't believe it's been a year since Janis Gore suggested we try blogging. Since then we have published over 220 entries, 32,000 words and 100 photos. Hopefully, our readers have learned a lot about parrots in addition to learning about our philosophy of raising them.
And we've had a lot of visitors...over 7,500 visits in the last year and our monthly total now exceeds 1,000. And not just from the U.S., we have had visitors from over 45 countries.
The search engines have also discovered J-Birds blog. We've gotten over 500 hits from Yahoo, Google, MSN and others. We now average 3 hits a day for some of the weirdest search words including "Magic Chef Convection Microwave Oven", "Paint The House Party", "Golden Orb Spiders", "Theodore Stephanides" and "Stargate Atlantis".
We thank you all. Even though you may not comment often, we know you visit. You've become part of our extended family which includes the hundreds of folks who have purchased parrots from us over the years.
The last year has been a very happy one for J-Birds. We've moved into the house of our dreams and can finally create a model environment for our birds. We don't desire to have hundreds of breeders and mass produce babies. We just want to create a lifestyle that allows us to enjoy our avian collection in a park-like setting while raising just enough babies so that each one is well socialized, gentle and healthy.
Most importantly, we love to meet "bird people". Those researching their first parrot or seasoned bird veterans, we find these folks (you) to be caring, sensitive and bright. Each weekend, you bring laughter and interesting conversation to our home. For that, we thank you.
Here's to you and the next year of blogging. Thanks. - Craig & Debra
and thanks again, Janis.
