The Friday Gathering: Reader of the week

By glblguy

Wow, Friday already. This week has really flown by. I guess that’s the benefit of staying busy.

I know many of you are following our house situation and the move we are planning to make, hopefully sooner than later. No big update other than we continue to work on house to make it more attractive to potential buyers. We have new carpet being installed today and my wife is finishing up repainting one last room. Our realtor has a big open house scheduled for Sunday afternoon and we hope that brings some traffic through. Since school has started, we haven’t had one single showing.

Reader of the week

One thing I learned very quickly when I started Gather Little by Little is the importance of your readers. Google visitors come and go, but my readers are the one’s I truly write for and the ones that make Gather Little by Little the best that it can be. To say thanks and frankly to give you some of the recognition you deserve I going to start something called reader of the week. The reader of the week will be the reader who leaves the most “value add” comments here on Gather Little by Little the previous week. The reader of the week will be selected on Friday and featured the following week. I’ll feature the selected reader along with some basic information and hopefully a picture (yes I know some of you won’t won’t want to do that…that’s ok) in my sidebar. If you have a blog, you’ll receive a link too.

I think this will be fun and hopefully allow me to say thanks in a small way for reading Gather Little by Little. So get those comments flowing!


I once again remembered to participate in blog carnivals this week. I’ve set myself a goal to do this each week, we’ll see how it goes! I participated in the following carnivals this week:

    I didn’t think about trying to sell a home at the beginning of the school year… But it makes sense that sales might slow down. Hopefully this you will have a few prospective buyers this weekend!

    And I hate ATM fees too! Thanks for the mention. :)

    I guess most people with kids won’t even want to move locally until farther into the semester. Here’s to some rich DINKYs wanting your home! Or plain old DINKs.

    Hope you sell the house soon. Great idea on the reader of the week. Thanks for mentioning my article, glblguy!

    Hahaha I think it’s hilarious you looked up my first comment. And I corrected your grammar. Awesome. (And I’m terrible at grammar.)
