Yoo-Hoo!

Yoo-hoo! Yeah, you. You...right there. Yes. I'm talking to you. Why do you come and read my blog and then not leave a comment? Are you shy? No blogger username to log in with? Stalking me? (hehehe).

Don't get me wrong--- I LOVE for people to read my blog. Anyone... EVERYONE! But I will also confess, I am a bloggy-comment-whore. It's true; and I'm told the first step to recovery is admitting I have a problem. So there. It's out.

Anyway, to ALL of my bloggy-followers... Thank you for stopping by and reading! But I'd like to know WHO YOU ARE!!! Perhaps YOU have a blog you'd like ME to read. And I am NOT selfish with the bloggy-comment-love. Trust me... I get the whole, "you gotta give love to get love" thing. I try to leave a comment on all the blogs I read.

So, please, come out of the shadows. Tell me about yourself. How long have you been following me? What brought you here? Did you run into me once upon a time over at SITS or BATW? Or perhaps I know you personally? From back home? Or maybe you found me through a blog of a blog of a blog of a blogger you know?

Or perhaps you had intentions of following me, looked once and then thought, "nah...not my cup of tea" and can't figure out how to "un-follow" me? It's ok... you can admit it. I am not naive enough to think that EVERYONE who stops by my blog will love it! (What's wrong with my blog? Why don't you love it? What's not to love?)

Anyway - I know other people do give-aways to bribe readers to come out of the woodwork and leave comments and such. Well, the only thing I really have to offer is ... well, er, um... not much, I'm afraid. I guess I could give you like all of my Subway points or my Cafe Rio card or something. I think I might have a crumpled up coupon for like a $1 off a frosty somewhere.

So, here's the challenge... Whether you are a frequent commentator or a Comment-Virgin, go ahead, and leave me some bloggy-comment love. Tell me how you found me (if you can remember) and what, if anything, you like about my blog.

And if YOU have a blog and I am not already a follower... PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE gimme your URL!!! I LOVE ALL THINGS BLOG!

It's true...I realize I am demonstrating severe attention-seeking behavior... so... sue me! (or better yet... leave me a comment and tell me! hahaha!)

oh - and By the way... it says I have 72 published followers... Geesh! Is that accurate? I only harvest about 4-15 comments on any given post... go figure.

purplehaze said...

I do leave a comment here and there and appreciate when you leave me a comment. I found out about your blog of course through nursemom. You are funny and witty and I love what you write.

Yaya said...

I know. I did the math and for every 1 comment I get I actually have 20 readers. CrAzY!

Deborah said...

I don't remember how I found your blog ... probably through some random other person's blog. I usually don't leave comments. I only leave a comment if I have something useful, encouraging, or thoughtful to say. That's because I get so excited when I see that I have a new comment, and then I'm SO disappointed if it doesn't indicate any thought at all--you know, if it's one of those comments that's so general or mindless that it could be posted on any old blog. Since I hate to get those comments, I only give comments if I can give better than that ... BTW, don't feel obligated to visit my blog unless you want to--I also don't blog unless I have something to say, which isn't always as often as I feel like it should be, so my blog still has the post up that you commented on last time. (I loved your comment, by the way, so please don't think I'm slamming you for leaving thoughtless comments!)

Susie said...

I couldn't stalk you more if I tried...or could I? Hee, hee, hee:-)

Kaye Butler said...

I'm not a stalker

Kaye Butler said...

I also do not always leave a comment, my excuse, sometimes I just have enough time to read my fav blogs

Kaye Butler said...

Other times, my mind is a blank. That happens alot since I'm old and not living in the 21st century according to

Harlow the 18 year old, who dreams of owning a boob implant company someday and oh, thinks I'm a fascist!!!

Kaye Butler said...

Loved PrettyPrincesses post. She's so smart and that picture for her profile? Drop Dead Beautiful.

Ronnica said...

I haven't a clue how we met. SITS, probably? It's been a while.

And yes, it's ironic that we both posted basically the same thing. Maybe we'll start a trend (not that this is anything new, but you know, restart it)?

Holli and Billy said...

The first step is admitting you are a stalker right??

TravAndToni said...

Your kid made me check out your blog! And I check your blog everyday. And sometimes I comment, but sometimes I don't because I don't want to constantly be sounding silly. But if you can overlook a bit of silliness, then I'll be more consistant about commenting. And I know how much bad grammar bothers you, but I like the and and and sentences!

okeydokeyifine said...

not much to say always

And you know how I know you. And you know that I send others to your blog. And you know I enjoy reading them. And you know I love you, what more do you want.

You almost figured out the glitter chick's confession!

Puphigirl said...

I found your blog because you're my sister and you told me I had to read your blog. You even sat me down at your computer and had me read pasts posts because I hadn't been following you. Now I'm all caught up and try to leave comments because you leave comments on my blog.

Julie said...

:) This is how I keep tabs on you!

Betty said...

You know me. The one from Paraguay... :) I´m just being lazy lately about commenting, but I´m still here reading.
And missing blogging....

The Days of JoDee's life said...

Alright, you caught me. I have read your blog a couple of times because Adam told me that it was entertaining. I have to admit that he's right. I was never going to post anything cause...oh I don't know.... seemed a little weird? lol. I don't know... but when you left a comment on MY blog, I thought that I could do it as well. Good luck with the running...I know that I'm going to need it myself! And I'm glad that things are going well with you and "Big-D" :)

Debbi said...

you already know I'm here....

andrew's mom said...

Hey Emma! I love reading your blog and even though technically I don't know you, I feel like I do! I think I comment pretty regularly... I guess I could be giving the love a little more often-I'll do better-I promise! I found you through our mutual hilarious friend Megan Hinckley. Keep up the good work!

Ruthykins said...

okay, i know you from the family. mrbusdr and nursemom told me i had to read your blog. it is really funny and i try to read it everyday, but sometimes somebody has already said what i want to say and they've said it better than i ever could. that's why i don't always comment.

greenolive said...

I found your blog because you're my sister. I sometimes have not left a comment because I couldn't think of anything clever to say. I suppose I could leave a dull comment if that's what you'd prefer. So from now on I'll leave a comment interesting or not.

mrbusdr said...

I read your blog because we do not have a circle letter. I do not always leave a comment because I can't always think of a 'smart aleck' remark. If I didn't leave a 'smart aleck' remark, you might think it was a stalker hiding behind my identity. hehehehe!!

lilianril said...

I do feel bad sometimes for not commenting on all your posts since you usually do to all mine. My biggest problem is that I can't think of anything else to say after discussing everything at work. Well that and I sometimes get several weeks behind on reading... But I do appreciate your comments!

Paige said...

I comment here occasionally--but lots of times, I cannot, because for some reason, when it fully downloads, the background is white and I cannot read the text. Yours is one of a few that I can NEVER read on my BB for that reason.

I read all the time though and love it.

I think you have been by mine, but it has been awhile--no wonder, I have been boring. www.strawnequine.blogspot.com

Hey! I only have 3! You should feel lucky you have that many!

Sorry it's been so long! been busy. miss ya!

Vickie said...

I think I found you through SITS. I think you were the featured blogger once.

I thought you were a hoot. You had me chuckling. Gotta follow a blog that makes me laugh:)
