Holy Crap...I have 50 followers!

I am blown away by the fact that people enjoy this blog. I'm absolutely giddy! If you didn't know, I started this blog for my scrapbooking friends who liked hockey. I got a new camera for Christmas in 2006. At the end of the 2006-07 season, my husband said "why don't you take it to the game and take some pictures?" I was shocked..."I can do that?" Well in Atlanta you most certainly can. So I started taking pictures and posted them on this scrapbooking website for my hockey loving buddies. My photobucket account started filling up fast, so I was looking for another outlet and started this blog.

At first I didn't even share the blog with my friends on the Thrashers message board or my hockey friends. I was embarrassed. I thought they would laugh it off the world wide web. Finally I had a picture I wanted a few people on the message board to see, so I linked it. They liked it. I put the link in my signature there and the rest is history! People started coming up to me in the arena and telling me they liked it. I met some AWESOME people that way (Sonya, Ally, Lacey to name a few).

So thank every one of you guys that are "following" me. It makes my day and I appreciate it big time. Thank you to those who stop by and aren't an official follower as well. I understand I'm your guilty pleasure ;) Here's to many more seasons of my 1/2 assed pictures and dumb comments!

Your pictures are awesome. Just sayin' ;) and you seriously inspired me to start hockey blogging so thank you! I love your pics and your sense of humor.

Holy Crap, of course you have 50 followers, and I'm surprised it actually isn't more, and it will be!!!! Your blog rocks, and not only us girls love it, but several guys do too! And I love it when I get a chance to be one of your guest photographers :-) Very flattered.

Don't change a thing, keep it coming!

PS: Hey ALLY!!! You got your blog going? I'd love to take a look. Remember meeting me at the Turco game, and you thought I was Virginia? V is a great role model.

I'm so happy I found my way to your blog! I love your pics, comments and, of course, the "dialogue" between players. Plus, it's great running into you in person!

Ally April 23, 2010 at 12:04 AM  

MICHELLE! Hey! Of course I remember you :) My blog is at I don't post often because I'm so busy with school.

Beth I was so excited to meet the "Slayer/Slater" girl lol. My husband loves Slayer and thought that was the coolest thing ever! And then you won my contest and I knew you were awesome!!

Michelle April 23, 2010 at 7:00 AM  

Hey Ally, I'd love to watch your blog too! Congrats. And Beth, I have to tell you, we've always seen your great big Slater Slayer sign. We, and especially JB, are major Slater fans too, we always say "Slater for President" thru V, it's been nice to know who made that great big sign, and you probably don't know this but that was me that was with V at the last practice that morning where we were getting a few things signed. I wanted to say hi and tell you I love your sign but at that time things were happening really quick and it was loud so I figured I would say hi later. HI :-)

And, I'm like everyone, I LOVE her verbal exchanges between the players, cracks me up!

V, you Rock!

Michelle, I'm sure we'll "officially" meet next season! If Jimmy gets resigned, I'm totally making Slater Mafia tees. Feel free to join the Mafia with us!

Virginia, you do know we're relying on you to help us survive the off-season, right? :)
