The More Cowbell Posse ~ Y’all Amaze Me!

Hopefully all the readers here at More Cowbell know how much I appreciate them ~ y’all  are my posse and you brighten my day. Today I wanted to send out a huge THANK YOU.

It’s a pretty rare thing to see a Wednesday post from me but I’m starting this new feature where every so often I do a shout-out to those of you that have taken the time to be the top commenters here. (WordPress tells me these things…it’s AMAZING.)

Currently, this list of stellar peeps includes:

K.B. Owen
Zack Kullis
Pauline Baird Jones
Renée A. Schuls-Jacobson
Julie Glover
Natalie Hartford  

I keep up with them and I think you should too. These people take time to have some seriously groovy discussions and they all make me laugh, and think, depending on the day. I could say that about a bunch of you, but these were the six that WordPress highlighted  today.

Click their names to see an amazing recent post of theirs.
Follow them on Twitter.
Find them on Facebook.

I promise you’ll be glad you did. I know I am.

Many, many thanks to all of you who make this blog so fun. You’re the ones who keep me coming back for MORE COWBELL. 🙂

    Jenny, wowzers, I’m getting a little verklempt here…BIG-TIME thanks for the fab shout-out! I’m honored to be part of such a wonderful group of peeps. I didn’t know WordPress did that kind of analysis. Of course, our uber-techy Jenny is all over it, LOL. Cool beans!

    Can I just say (and I know everyone else will agree on this) that it’s your personality, quality of writing, generosity, and oh-so-welcoming atmosphere that draws us in? Think about it: 40+ comments on a Sunday blog post about coffee mugs? Seriously, who else draws that kind of response? 😀

    Hope you all have a great week,

    What a great group of people! Everything is better with More Cowbell. Fantastic idea, Jen 🙂


  3. What a wonderful idea, Jenny. Now that I know that you know…

    Oh, never mind.

    DITTO what Kathy said. It’s your voice and your snark that bring your Cowbell Posse running each time More Cowbell rings in my inbox.

    Thanks for the links. I already follow some of these, but this is going into my Nifty News folder for access after I finish my self-imposed write-a-thon count for the day.


  4. See? And this is why we adore you. The joy you bring to all your topics — and the time you take to make sure to respond to every comment. You are a delight, m’dear. Guess I’d better get some new content up there, eh? 🙂

      And I like your content!! I completely dug your Happy Birthday post to your brother…I just thought your other one was more powerful. (I’m glad August is done too! Although it does have National Underwear Day going for it…)


  5. I am with everyone here…it’s your bodacious blog, fabulous friendship, powerful personality, and witty writing that just keeps us coming back for more….and more…and MORE! We love you! You have a way of making every single reader feel like you are their BFF and it’s a one-on-one convo…and that’s utterly awesome!

    Thank you for the uberlicious shout out – YOU make a difference in my world!

    Jenny, you do a great job with the blog, and it is a reflection of you personally. It’s kind of like something that my grandfather used to say. “The apple never falls too far from the tree.”

    Thank you for including me in that list. I feel like a small fish in a big pond when I look at the other peeps in this group.

    Please keep writing and posting the wonderful things you do, and we will continue to follow.
    Love what you do.


  7. I have a half-written reader appreciation post on my computer right now. Great minds think alike 🙂 (Mine won’t go out until October though when I go back to three posts a week.)

    You managed to list some of the kindest people on the Internet, and everyone you’ve named deserves to be recognized.


  8. Jenny! thank you so much for the awesome shout out!!! What a fun thing to wake up to! I love more cowbell and will get a picture of mine! LOL!


  9. Julie Glover says:

    Good gravy! Every time I see a list like that, there’s someone on it that makes me think, “Why am I not already following him/her?!!!” I need more hours in the day to read blog posts because there are some truly awesome ones that I miss. Thanks so much for including me in this bunch. (I feel especially blessed to be in the company of Kathy Owen, who uses a word like “verklempt” so handily and casually.) It’s always my pleasure to come here and shake my cowbell.

    Have a fab week, all! Love ya, Jenny.


  10. Gilliad Stern says:

    Thanks for the list! I’ll have to check them out.


  11. theinnerwildkat says:

    I absolutely love that you did this. It gave me the opportunity to find and follow some very interesting new people. Thanks!


  12. So awesome of you to highlight others in the blogging community! I think I already follow all of them, but I will double check 🙂


  13. Jess Witkins says:

    Aw, congrats to all the top commenters! I love posts that celebrate their readers. And you’ve got some great ones on that list. Happy wednesday!


  14. Cowbell has a Posse!!! Zack was new to me, but I’m following now. Thanks, Jenny! ❤


  15. Those are all fantastic blog and bloggers! And I agree with all of the comments. A fun blog draws a fun crowd.

  16. Jenny, you are the one who ultimately makes the Cowbell Posse tick. You brought us all together and started a community that continues to expand and rock the blogging universe. ~cheers~

    This is a lovely idea Jenny! Thank you for pointing these peeps out cause I don’t know Zack Kullis, or Pauline Barid Jones or Renee A. Schols-Jacobson. (Okay, a couple of these people must have shortened their name in order to fit on Twitter. LOL!) But I’m off to check them out and make sure I’m following them. We definitely need More Cowbell! I believe your posse is increasing leaps and bounds! 🙂


    • Jenny Hansen says:

      Sweet Karen! I can’t believe you’ve never met Renee – she’s who I met first, via Clay Morgan and Kristen Lamb’s blogs. Renee is heaped in fairy dust and glitter.

      I put these 6 up because WordPress told me too AND (a) they earned it and (b) they deserve many follows. 🙂


      • I’ve been following the comments all day and into the next and just so thrilled to have made your list and thank you for your kind words! I’m learning so much from the posse and having a great time doing it. I wrestled with the “where I’m from” blog post yesterday. I’ll revisit it in a couple of days, but have it planned to go live on the 17th. It was both lovely and hard. So many memories. Thank you for bringing it to your blog!

    I nearly follow all of them. Soon to be fixed! What an awesome shout out.
