Thanks, Kathy, for shedding some major light on something that has been puzzling me for days. I found the forum where you posted my blog url. I assumed that if people were finding it online, they would be clicking it. But apparently this forum does not allow for hyperlinks, so readers must be copying the address and pasting it into their web browsers. Thus, the "no referring link" trick.

I know this is a very tiny thing to have occupied my mind, but it feels so good to have gotten to the bottom of it! And even better to know that the people reading are finding it useful. Not that I've received many comments as such, but I have to assume they are finding something they like judging by how much they dig around.

Also, thanks for putting me "out there," so to speak. I would feel weird doing self-promotion, but for someone else to think my writings are worthwhile enough to share, that means a lot to me!


  1. Glad to have helped. You sound a lot like me - I just have to figure out how people are finding my blog. :)

  2. Hi my friend! I have caught up on your blog for the most part now that we are wireless at my house....can I hear a yippee????!! I PROMISE to update my blog and share all of the thoughts on life that have been hanging around in my head.

    :) Nicole

  3. Yippeeeeeeee! It's about time your household joined the 21st century. Welcome! Just be cautious, because the internet (especially blogging and reading blogs) will suck you in before you know it!

  4. Hi. I found your link at "the forum" you speak of as I'm looking for information about NC and so far so good. My husband and I are in Los Angeles but we are thinking about relocating to NC. Better quality of life, etc etc etc. Let's not even get into Los Angeles traffic ... yikes! Anyway ... Hope you don't mind me snooping around your site ;)

  5. Windy: I don't mind at all! I'm happy to be of any help. That's why I started this originally anyway. It's evolved into kind of a blab fest about everything in my life but first and foremost it's about relocating to NC. Do let me know if you have any particular questions and I'll try to address them. Thanks for reading and digging around (and posting a comment)! Best of luck with your research.

  6. Hi Melissa:
    So I went and read through your blog ... followed your travels out of Cali and into state after state - totally interesting and informative! From Pods, to cats, to dogs, to cities, your site has helped your fellow SoCal girl and I appreciate it. :)

  7. You are so very welcome! I'm thrilled that you found it interesting and informative. That's what I was going for!

    Take care.

  8. Melissa,

    I think your site is wonderful. Did you say you are looking into moving here? I relocated to this area from NY and love the south. The weather is awesome as are the people. So close to the beaches, mountains, best colleges and hospitals in the country. This area works well with families or singles. I'm glad I found Raleigh. If you ever need any info let me know. I am now a realtor in the Raleigh area just stumbled across your site.
