Whoa, Nellie!!! We Maxed, AGAIN!

Once again all you AboveLevel users rule!  We beat our biggest day ever again yesterday with 2,123 views!!!  Today actually looks like it might be even bigger.  What is even more exciting to me is the amount of discussion (calm discussion, which is even better!) about all the various topics.  I love that this is becoming a place for people “gather” and talk about what is on their minds and share information.  That was our mission all along and it is outstanding to see it coming to fruition. 

 When my husband and I decided to start this we kept quoting a line out of one of his favorite movies, Field Of Dreams-”If you build it, they will come.”  And you did…and it is great!

    I am so glad it is an alternative to certain chat groups (aka vehicles to slam the AMHA) where show-people are not exactly perceived in a good light. On this blog, I don’t feel like I have to “tone down” my enthusiasm for the Morgan show horse!

    It is also nice to see everyone voicing opinions in an adult, civil tone…not attacking each other like bickering children.

    Thanks for building it.

    This is a great blog! I’m so glad I stumbled upon it. While I participate actively in some dog breed blogs, it isn’t the same. My dog friends listen to my horse issues but can’t do much else… This is a fantastic place for me—and a Morgan one at that! Way to go!!!!

    So I just called my husband and told him that I can’t clean the house today because I am stuck outside the house. “Why?” he asked. “Because I can’t get my BIG HEAD through the front door!!!”

    All kidding aside, thanks so much for all the wonderful comments. Just to let you all know, I always want suggestions and feedback (positive and negative, both). I really do want this to be a site where everybody is comfortable and gets the info. they are looking for. If there is anything you would like to see, please let me know and I will see what I can do.

    Congrats! I also think this is a fantastic site and I visit it daily, often more than once. It is awesome to see it grow, I shared it with my friends many months ago and they are starting to visit also.

    Congratulations! I just found you on a search for a Morgan Topic. I am excited, as the site has given me so much information already. I look forward to checking in daily.

    Congratulations! :) This blog is really getting a great reading – I think every time I step into the barn I get a new person (client, lesson kid, whatever) that goes ‘have you heard about this Above Level blog??’

    I have a suggestion, though – add forums to the site! That would definitely get the readership and comments up, I think. Think of some of the successful ASB and Arabian forums – ablackhorse.com, awhitehorse.com, trot.org. I frequent them just for show horse discussion since I can’t ever find a good Morgan forum :P

    Just a suggestion! :)

    I totally agree with hrhirene!

    I love the blog format for show results and classified and what not, but when it comes to actual discussions, a forum might be easier to navigate. It might make people more apt to start a topic as well!

    I also read trot.org and its a great forum… except there seems to be no Morgan people! It would be so, so cool to have a morgan message board.
