Better late than never- Delurking Day 2009

Better late than never- Delurking Day 2009

Blog lurkers are known as those folks who visit, read and then run. They are either too shy to say anything, they are blog stalkers who don’t want you to know they are reading or they simply have nothing to say about what you’ve just talked about cause it was a boring post.

Delurking Day 2009 was 1/12/09 but I missed it in my excitement over birthing at The Farm and all. Thanks to Hotfessional and Juggling Life I learned of delurking day much like how N and I realized we were being legally married on halloween, too little to late.

Anywho, the idea of delurking day is to get blog readers who don’t comment to fess up and leave a comment below so we know they are around here and in the loop.

Some of you are related to me, some of you see me in person from time to time or know me form the past, some of you have never met me face to face but have built a bond through blogging. Either way you are sharing in my life by being a regular reader of my blog and that is important to me. Now I am calling you out and challenging you to speak up and delurk just for this one day.

This blog gets anywhere from 200- 300 hits per day (except for Christmas Day) and an average of 5-18 comments per day. That means quite a few people are lurking, like more than 100 of you!

If you are reading this post expose yourself! Simply post a comment below saying hello, you don’t have to have a blog to comment, just type your name, email address (don’t worry it wont be publicly displayed) and your comment. Lets see how many lurkers come out of the wood work today…

Also, Donna B. tagged me for a meme this week:

On her blog she said it was “a very non-important meme. (Is that redundant?) Cassandra at Villainous Company calls it a crappy meme, but I’ll not go there.”

The rules are as follows:

  1. Link to the person that tagged you.
  2. Post the rules on your blog.
  3. Share six non-important things/habits/quirks about yourself.
  4. Tag six random people at the end of your post by linking to their blogs.
  5. Let each random person know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their website.

And now my 6 not important tidbits of info for you:

  1. I have a nice mole type freckle in my left armpit, so does my mom. We share many of the same freckle markings. Strange huh? This armpit freckle/ mole is hard to shave around without cutting the darn thing off, luckily since my mom has one too she showed me the shaving tricks at a young age so I am good.
  2. Speaking of shaving, I wasn’t allowed to shave my legs until I was in middle school and I had some long ass blond leg hairs that everyone teased me about. Heidi do you remember this?
  3. All through middle school and even high school I would have a package of powdered doughnuts (or chocolate if they were out of powdered) and a soda for my lunch. I would also have a soda and a giant warm cookie everyday for breakfast throughout high school. Right now I am craving powdered doughnuts but have none, I’ll settle for a bag of warm microwave popcorn instead. There is a glimpse of what I’ll eat when I don’t actively try to have a healthy diet.
  4. I dated a guy for 4 years back in high school, we broke up because he wanted to “experiment” and all that jazz. I am pretty sure he is still experimenting… with penis… Nice huh? Luckily I met N shortly after the breakup with the gay guy and the rest is history…
  5. I hate when my foods mix on my plate. The contaminating of flavor really bugs me. N likes to eat several things at once like a bite of meat mixed with some veggies. I think it ruins the flavor of each individual items when you combine them, unless you are supposed to combine them like in shepherds pie or something.
  6. I am a SAHM- to be and my daytime TV consists of Desperate Housewives. I am not caught up to the current season so I am watching like 2 recorded episodes a day to get caught up eventually. I DO NOT like soaps at all and can’t stand talk shows or reality shows (except The Bad Girls Club)… I am not much of TV fan, why do we pay $70.00 a month for satellite again?

Okay so there you have it my 6 not important tidbits of info for you to chew on. I am tagging: Heidi, Becky, Janelle, Krystal, Connie, N and Witchypoo. Now that I just shared all that info you need to delurk okay? Lets see if we can get the comment count on this post to exceede 20 comments!

    Ok so I’m a blog lurker. I find yours interesting and read it everyday. I don’t have a blog of my own…don’t think my life is that interesting right now. Good luck with your pregnancy.

  • I am thrilled that you and N had such a great weekend! 🙂 Sounds like that the Birthing Center is just perfect for you guys.

    I enjoyed your 6 facts, too…

  • That’s funny because I think 1/12 was a record low for comments on my blog. I guess it would help if I posted…

  • I thought I had shared just about everything about me on my blog, with the exception of family matters.
    Thanks for the tag. I might as well dig deep and find something, because I don’t have much to blog about lately.

    I am a lurker on sometimes.Most the time I try to cemment. But some randomness, I got my teeth debrived, I think that’s what you call it, today. My mouth was neglectedand it feels great. 2nd, Riley has gotten his first tooth!! It’s not all the way through yet, but you can see it!! He’s almost 5 months. I’m so excited. I’m going to try to take a picture of it and send it to Adam because he’s out to sea for 3 weeks.
    Also, how do I make myself a thing to where I can start blogging? I’m a little copmuter illitereate when it comes to that stuff.lol.

  • Not exactly a lurker here either but I have had trouble getting your site to load today. What’s going on with the internets?

    I can relate to the donuts, not being allowed to shave my legs, and hating soap operas, but I’m with N on melding the flavors of my food.

    I love Desperate Housewives. I am addicted. I am loving this season. I also like Nip/Tuck

  • Well, I’m NOT going to expose myself. Because, y’know. I’m 45 and a bit flabby around the middle and bald.

    But, I don’t lurk either. 😉

  • Hey- Jenni from Evansville BirthNetwork here. Just wanted to see how you and your baby were coming along and so every now and then I stop by to see how things are going.. the FARM:>) ????? So cool. The next BirthNetwork meeting is on Feb. 12 and the topic is birth stories..I realize you won’t have had your baby by that time, but I know the other women would love to meet you and hear about how you are preparing for birth. I am so excited for you, having never met Ina May myself but only reading her books. Not many women have done all the work you are putting into preparing for your birth and I wish you the best.

    Later..

  • Hi. I actually googled “how to delurk a blog” because I was planning on doing just that to mine and came across your post.

    Normally, I would have just read and run but in the spirit of delurking and all… 😉
