PLEASE READ

I’ve received a comment that suggests my #2 standing on Best Freebies is based on votes that I requested of those who download my freebies and that this type of popularity is fleeting, which, of course it is, if true. I don’t think voting has anything to do with the standings; however, I’m not too sure. As far as I can determine, the standing is based on the amount of traffic, numbers of page views, and averages determined over a period of time. Being listed on BEST FREEBIES is just a bit of fun for me; however, PLEASE DON’T RATE OR REVIEW LILYBELLE SCRAPS ON BEST FREEBIES ANYMORE. I think your usual, regular visits will be more than enough to give me a decent rating. Let’s just let LILYBELLE float and see where she ends up! :)

It was also suggested in this comment that the popularity of LILYBELLE SCRAPS is based for the most part on traffic from DIGISCRAP DEPOT. Let’s test this theory - I will no longer be listing my freebies on DIGISCRAP DEPOT so, if you are relying on this listing to be advised of freebies, just enter your email address in the FEEDBLITZ box at the right and, hopefully, you’ll get an email whenever I make a new posting. If my downloads decrease, then so-be-it. As I’ve said several :) times before - the reward is in the giving – whether to a few or many is irrelevant. Sorry to sound so glum but I guess I feel like a small child who’s had their fingers smacked; but, perhaps not so strange – I’m certainly old enough to be in my second childhood! :)

Hey! I have your blog hooked up to my Google reader, so I won't miss your posts. It's so weird to me that folks want to spoil someone having fun. They get nothing from their actions except the knowledge that they have ruined something for someone else - and here you are, graciously sharing your time and talent to give out freebies to visitors to your blog, even when they don't bother to say thanks or, worse, leave negative comments. (((Hugs))) to ya, and kisses for the boo boos on those little fingers!

Wow.. it never ceases to amaze me how petty some people can be. For some reason making someone feel BAD makes them feel BETTER. I just pity them since they obviously haven't figured out what's really important in life. Chin up, lady! We love ya!

You know people that leave comments like that are jealous.I've been downloading your kits since I saw the first one at Rak scraps, and when you decided to start a blog I came here.

Your items are great and dont let one person tell you any different. I just wish i had the talent for designing that you and all the other designers do. I check your blog every day and will keep doing this as long as it is here.

Don't let the negative comments get you down! They are just so unhappy with their lives they want everyone else to be as miserable as they are. This is a great site!! The items you are giving are beautiful and are appreciated!!!! Delete the negative comment, forget it and continue having fun with everyone else. Thank you so much for all you do. Have a great day.

Remember when someone tries to bring you down and you are not at fault...it just really brings you UP! It makes them look small and you stand tall with honesty. God knows the truth and really that's all that matters. Funny how He has made you #1 today even with you asking no one to rate or review your site! You can't keep a good woman down. So, "Get your girl back on" and keep those fingers where they belong.....designing beautiful digital kits! If you share them as freebies it is a big bonus for us. But, even if you sell them....just don't stop making them!

There are just some really mean and petty people in this world! List your freebies everywhere!!! The gal that does Raspberry Road has nearly quit a couple of times due to mean people griping about missing a freebie. Do not let them get to you!!!

Isn't it entertaining that there are people walking around with pins just waiting to pop balloons!!!?? Who really cares HOW you got to number 2...you're there and it's fun for all of us. I haven't voted anywhere...I know you from RakScraps and just saw that you had a blog and started popping in here everyday because I enjoy your work. I'm glad you are the person you are and secure in that and can take these people for who they are.
Thanks for your work and your generosity.

Sounds to me like these comments are coming from a few jealous people!! I can never figure out why some people need to belittle others to make themselves feel big!!

You have a wonderful site and I visit because I like your blog and your designs.
Thank you for all the wonderful kits you have shared. I appreciate all the work and time that goes into your designs.

whether you requested the votes or not, people will only vote for you if they like you, so whether the #1 or #2 place comes from the votes or visits it's because you do such great work and people like it..
