Les Petites Choses . . .

Blogger, the site that hosts Just Jon, has a feature called "Blogs Of Note."

"Blogs Of Note" is like the holy grail for bloggers.

If Blogger picks your blog to be the Blog Of Note you can pretty much guarantee the number hits your site receives daily and the number of "Followers" you have are going to skyrocket!

I have often looked at the sites who have been chosen to be the Blog Of Note with a tinge of jealousy at their high traffic numbers.

Then this week I scrolled down my page and saw Just Jon's traffic had surpassed 16,000 hits!

Not to shabby!

So thank you once again for reading Just Jon!

I wanted to bring your attention to an update to the blog.

I updated the list of "Just Some Other Blogs Worth Reading."

This list comprises the web sites I read on a regular basis.  Some sites dropped off my list because they have not been updating for several months.   If those sites become active again they will probably end up back on my list!

New to the list are:

EDIT - a former co-worker of mine who shares her current loves in fashion and lifestyle.

The Style Safari - is also a former co-worker who gives fashion and do it yourself lifestyle tips.

Suri's Burn Book - is a comedic look at life through the eyes of Suri Cruise.  It is pretty snarky so you have been warned.

J-J jr. - in order for me to follow EDIT and Suri's Burn Book I had to join another blog host site called Tumblr.  J-J jr. came with the membership to that host.  It is a simple site that I am going to post sounds, words, and photos that inspire me.  This site has a more modern hip format and will allow me to do some things that I can't do on just-jon.

I also enabled "Mobile Just Jon."  If you are viewing Just Jon from your cell phone, the site will open in a modified format customized for mobile browsers.

Lastly, for those of you who do not speak French, "Les Petites Choses" translates to "The Little Things."
