Hey - You There - How’d You Get Here?

In the beginning, I joined Facebook under protest and only with the stated purpose of creating a stronger internet presence for me and my books and my career.

Subsequently, I’ve found that if I write a blog and do NOT post a link on Facebook, this site gets significantly fewer hits.

So this is a little Friday night experiment. If you’re coming to this site for some reason OTHER than Facebook, please leave a comment below and tell me when and how you landed here!

Teddy and I thank you.

Before there was Teddy, there was Daisy, a one-in-a-million dog that knew me better than I knew myself. She was one of those animals that seemed more like a human than a canine.

Daisy got me through the divorce to my first husband Tom, to whom I was married for 24 years. Daisy would never get on the bed but would stay right by my side. Wed take long walks in the countryside sans leash, and she never wandered away.

Teddy might be a little jealous.

    I found out about you when you were having a relative exhumed in Lake Mills, WI.

    I live just south of there and followed the news story on this website. I do not do Facebook.

    I don’t do Facebook. I don’t need another venue for my deadbeat friends and relatives to track me down with sob stories about being broke.

    I’m a longtime blog subscriber. Originally found you on a Pinterest pin.

    I don’t think there are any Sears Homes here in Australia, but love your posts and wish you all good things for the future.

    I’ve followed your blog on my feed reader for years, love your knowledge of Sears homes.

    My home isn’t a Sears home, but an almost Sears Mitchell. And I don’t do Facebook. :-)

    Surprisingly – because I am ALWAYS on FB – I arrived here tonight via my RSS reader instead.

    I come here from a link from my own blog.

    I also use wordpress, I can see where people come from as a far as facebook or pinterest, flickr, another blog or even a hyperlink from another blog. I bet you have that feature too!

    You can find that under ‘STATS’.

    You can also see what was googled or searched to land on your blog!

    I think I found this blog through a google search.

    I was bored one day about a year ago and did a search for “Sears Houses.”

    I had read one of Rosemary’s books several years ago, and was delighted to find she had a blog.

    I found your site years after reading one of your books and doing a “binge read” on your posts to catch up.

    I don’t have time for facebook and only look at my wife’s when there is nothing better to do.

    By the way, I have a running count of 3 Sears Crescent houses in my area and numerous ones that must be a kit house. :)

    @Rebecca
    Some were built in Queensland during the gold mining days.

    I can’t remember the name or the author of the book I read back in the 1990’s that stated this.

    If I find out I’ll post again.
