One item of business: This week is De-Lurker Week in the blogger world.
What is a Lurker and why would I want to De-Lurk them? A Lurker is someone who follows and reads your blog but may never post any comments. Some people are old friends, family, people I know but have never met in real life, and others are people that stumble on my blog because they are searching for someone like themselves or with similar experiences and have questions, or just for the love of reading blogs. I keep my blog open to the public because during my pregnancy complications I wanted to find people who had experienced what I was going through and could share how they dealt with the many decisions and hurdles we've had to make. Along the way I've found an amazing support group of people and have received some wonderful feedback. I know I have helped people who've had micro-preemies, people who have kids coming home on an oxygen supply, kids who have feeding tube issues, and other parents of multiples, so I feel like maybe I'm doing something small but good for someone out there. It's the only way I can think to repay the kind favors that others have done for me in the same fashion.
So with that, I learned of De-Lerker week from my friend Sara over at Twice As Nice and so I'm jacking her post idea and throwing in the Q&A too. Thanks Sara!
To everyone out there: Here is your opportunity to step up to the mic and show yourself. Don't be shy! I would love to hear from every one of my regular readers this week, especially if you don't usually leave a comment. Just leave me a little love (aka-comment). If you don't have a Google account, that's okay, you can leave a comment anonymously. But it would be much appreciated if you could just sign your name so I know who you are :-) If you have a blog, I will come give you some blogger loving back too.
And for something new, I'd like to combine this post with an answering question session. I have never done this before so I know you all have lots of burning questions you want to ask. Maybe things like: How are you not completely insane? Why are you never in the pictures? Where did you get those shoes? Are you aware your kitchen floor is gross? How many vomited shirts do you go through a day?
Anything is up for discussion, I'm a pretty direct and open person.
So come on! De-lurk! Just stop in to say hi! Ask me anything! 'Cuz seriously...
