let's make a deal

So apparently today (um yesterday, now) was delurking day, and I missed it. Delurking day just means everyone who reads LEAVES A COMMENT instead of clicking away. I am super guilty of lurking on other blogs, which is silly because I know how much comments make this worth doing. I just don't have a lot of time and often read posts and feel too tired to think of something clever to say so I don't say anything. I do this. And I know you do it too.

So.

What do you say we do pretend delurking day, one day late (late is more my style anyway) and if you read my blog today you leave me a comment? Pretty please? Whether you're reading for the first time or you read every day, say hi. I would love to read your blog, too, so make sure you link to it so I can leave you a friendly not lurking comment as well. Deal?

And just to make you feel extra bad and guilty, I have been sick this week so your comments will super special pep me up, okay?

Thank you friends. You make this fun.

  4. I think we're all guilty of reading and running now and then :)
    Happy Friday to you!

  5. I'm a fairly new reader (couple months I think), you are on my Google reader. I leave comments even less often by reading that way, plus I am just a major lurker normally (I figure I am a stranger to most blogs I read as I don't know the people in "real" life so why would they care what I had to say?). I also have this issue with the first comment and whether or not I have to say it's my first comment. And I don't have my own blog, so there is nowhere for people to go to see who I am. Don't know why I felt the need to explain all that - but it's why I generally lurk! :) I enjoy your blog though!

  9. Hi!
    Not sure if I've commented before, but your blog is super : )
    (how's that for a super witty comment at 6:30am, before my coffee has kicked in!?)

  14. I try reallllly hard to leave comments when I read anyone's blog, but I am guilty of lurking too.
    Anyways...I love your blog, I really do.
    There's just something about you, your adorable family, & your pictures that always makes me smile. <3
    & by the way, the captcha for my comment is "ovenchik" & I just think that's weird.

  18. I love delurking day. I actually didn't read a single blog post yesterday, so at least I say I didn't technically ignore it. Perhaps I'll snatch your idea and do a delayed delurking day, too. :) Wouldn't it be sad if no one commented? ugh. maybe i won't. LOL!

  19. Hi! I read your blog regularly, and I think I've commented before. and I totally missed de-lurking day too - I try to comment on the blogs I read as often as I can, but yesterday I didn't leave a single comment!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I don't know if I have enough readers to ask for a de-lurker day! But I read yours (often on Google Reader like others have said), but I love your writing style.

  22. Hi Erin!
    I love your blog! I love that you love old movies and musicals just like I do. (Do you know how much I got made fun of for that in high school? SO nice to find someone like me in the blogosphere!!) I also love that you shop at the SA. ME TOO! And I like it. Not afraid to admit it.

    Also, I loved your Pandora Christmas station. Thanks for sharing.

    Happy delurking day!!

  23. I just can never seem to get a lurk together. I sometimes worry that I am too comment-y because that's the kind of worrying that is a good use of my time.

    Hi.

  24. Hi! I'm a day late. Guess that's what happens when I have a 3 month old and I work--too tired to do much! Hope you feel better!

  25. I'm officially delurking, and I need to know what shade of lipstick you're wearing in your profile pic.

    Here's to coming out of the woodwork!

  26. Hi Erin. I love keeping up with you and your family. It's always nice to read your voice on your blog. I hope to hear your voice sometime soon--lots to catch up on!

  27. I stumbled upon your blog about a week or two ago, and will now shamelessly admit that over the past week I've gone back and read all of your old posts. Hope that's not too creepy. You pretty much crack me up. The way you write is the way I think in my head, but I could never put it to paper (or blog) the way you do. My favorite so far: the super cute and hot "burlap sack." Anyway, I'm from LaPorte which I think is where you said you grew up? By the way, if you could see my laundry situation, you would DIE.

  29. Ha! I am totally guilty of lurking...not usually here though. If I wasn't so tired, I'd do a super duper late de-lurking post. I've been getting rather a ton of hits lately, and am very much wondering who on earth these people are.

  37. Hello, I forgot to leave a de-lurking comment earlier! Hi from Seattle :) Love your blog.

  38. Your posts always make me want to read more. I am sure there are so many ppl (incl me) that wish we got paid to read blogs and comment all day.

    Have a great one!
