calling all lurkers

So count me Late To The Party, but I just found out that today is Official Delurking Day!

Delurking Day 2009

According to my stats tracker and my Feedburner subscriber stats, I’ve gained a few new readers lately, and I’d LOVE to get to know you all. So please- leave a comment and say hello! Whether you have a blog or not, whether I know you in real life or not (because APPARENTLY THERE ARE LOTS OF YOU IN THE FAMILY READING, I’M LOOKING AT YOU SHERRY AND TOM!), whether you’re shy or not… just let me know you stopped by. It will make my day. Seriously.

    Hey! I think I found you through Kelly. Love your blog and recipes, even though we differ on football teams (Go Ravens!)! Loved the chicken taco recipe.

    Hello, hello! I linked to you once upon a time in my blog – you had fantastic Flickr advice that I shared with the world. Happy de-lurking day, as well.

    Google Reader recommended you to me a few months ago, and I’ve been reading ever since.

    I was a lurker, but I think I’ve rectified that over the past few months. :)

    Hi! I’ve been a lurker of your blog for about 3 years now. I’ve commented only about 3 times before. ;) I love reading your blog. You’ve got a wonderful family, especially Maggie!

    Just because I’m delurking, doesn’t mean I have to be wearing pants and eating ice cream out of an actual bowl, does it? You can’t SEE me, CAN YOU?

    I’m not a huge lurker, but I don’t comment as often as I should.

    I thought I would say “hi” anyways!

    I don’t really consider myself a lurker since I have commented on here before, but I guess I don’t very often, now that I think about it.

    I read your blog right before the Steelers game and was excited to see what a good game it was. I bet that was fun to go to. I bet it’s fun to have a good team. I wouldn’t know, being that I’m from Kansas (chiefs) and I currently live in Cincinnati (bengals).

    I always read and never comment! It’s lazyness, I know – Google Reader is just easier to read and harder to click over and comment on!

    Here you go! Officially delurking :)
    Maggie’s tales are reassuring for me as a mother that there are crazy days and good ones too with a toddler. Keep them coming..

    Oh and “dress my blog” is neat.

    So I’m late for delurcking day… what else is new- I always seem to be late these days! I hate to do it, but this weekend I have to say, “Go Steelers, beat the Felons!!! (I mean Ravens!!!)”

  32. Cristina

    January 13, 2009 12:32 pm

    I just started reading your blog, and I don’t remember if I ever commented or not. I don’t typically comment, but that doesn’t mean I don’t read. I sometimes feel weird “commenting” on someone else’s life, especially when it’s not my situation- but if I have a thoughtful idea, I’ll share. Otherwise, I just read instead.

    Hi there! I’ve been reading your blog for some years now, but I think I’ve only commented about 3 times so far. :) I really enjoy reading your blog, you make me laugh, especially your videos. :) So thanks for that!

    I so want to try the Chicken and Red Peppers – but I may have mentioned that already.

    Hi! I’m delurking from down here in Frederick, MD where we have Steelers fans, Ravens fans, and Redskins fans. But since I’m born & raised in Baltimore I have to say Go Ravens!

    Oh, and not only do I remember the days, but I remember Ari. Yes, THATS how long I’ve been lurking. Well, on and off of course. Does it freak you out? ;)

    Hi! I was a fan a million years ago and then later ended up back here. Been reading all for the past year… I believe I may have commented a few times, but little enough that I’ll classify myself as lurker. I am luker-ish, anyway. I enjoy your blog =)

    Wow, I’m slow on the uptake. I’ve been reading your site for many years, since the days. I used to comment, but have been lurking like a creepster for the last few years. So here I am, delurking. (=

    Not exactly a lurker but I don’t comment often and am fairly new… but I’ve been reading almost daily for a few months at least ;) I love your chicken taco soup (crockpot) recipe!
