Super Mom

Come have some coffees

Today is de-lurk day

Basically today you are requested to come out and play.  Join the party.  Have some coffees and cake with me.

I love blogging and I love that fact that people are interested enough to actually read the nonsense entries I write.  I know I have quite a lot of people reading my blog on a daily basis, yet there’s normally only about 9 that comment.  That’s about 10 % of all the readers (that actually click on the blog and not just read through something like Google reader.)

SO pretty please.  Leave a comment today.  If you want to stay anonymous then that’s fine.  We’ll call it a costume party and you don’t have to declare your real identity.  If you don’t want to say who you are, then at least tell me where you are from and how you found my blog.  Or why you keep on reading lol

Pretty please en so. It’s like my bestest friend Wenchy says:

Reading and not commenting is like coming into my house – drinking my coffee, eating my biscuits and not greeting me. Not proper that. ~ Wenchy

    I agree with you Mel I feel that way about my members in my msn group who pop in and don’t leave a note. So nice to know who has been in.

    Hi Melany,

    I am addicted to your blog! I just don’t always have time to comment. I have a mail in my outbox for you, but is is not even finished! I’ll try my best but are still enjoying your blog very much.

    Of course I will. Reading your blog is one of the highlights of my day! Feel cheated when it is not updated.

  5. I do occasionally comment, but more often than not I’m guilty of lurking. 🙂 Have a great day!

  10. Well I’ve left comments before, but I am not one of the best for leaving comments. Thanks for the offer of coffee and cake, but can I swap the coffee for some a soft drink!

    Happy delurking day!

  15. Interestingly enough I was going to put something very similiar on my blog. I have quoted Wenchy on my blog as she put it so nicely. I do have new commenters but the traffic says there is alot more reading. I am trying to be as good as you and update more frequently. I love to read the comments as you do and love reading your blog as I have two boys myself. Happy Delurking Day!!

  16. Howdy! Thanks for the biscuits, but way over here in the South US, we like our tea ice cold and sweet. And our biscuits with gravy!

  18. Not a lurker…just a friend and fan.

    October 4, 2007 at 3:45 am

  19. Hi Mel! Happy De-Lurking day from the good, ole USA!

  20. Hi, Mel!

  21. I am a wee bit late for “de-lurking’ day! Luckily I don’t have to de-lurk because I do visit regurlarly and do comment on most of your posts. Can I add that I love reading your blog. Can I confess, that yours is the first I read, even before I open my google reader!!!

    October 4, 2007 at 8:03 am

  22. As you know I am often here.

    I only comment when I feel compelled to. I am one who doesn’t agree with Wenchy’s comment, much as I love her.

    We put stuff out there, and it’s free for people to look at and read, they are not obliged to comment. That would be like HAVING to buy something just because you went into a shop?! Browsing is fine and if you like what you see you’ll likely come back, and may just end up being a frequent shopper. KWIM?

    Just my 2c

    your SIL is also guilty of just eating and then skipping out on you. SORRY!!
    You know how your brother is with the computer, I hardly get a chance to read before he is forcing me off the computer again. I will tell him how rude he is making me seem:):)

    I love reading your blog and keeping upto date with the boys and you guys.

    October 4, 2007 at 2:30 pm

  24. Hope this comment goes through. In fact, hope that previous five have attempted to send have not gone through, or I’ll look like an idiot. Couldn’t miss delurking day though. I have been SUCH a lurker lately. Google-reader has made me very lazy to comment. But I’ll try harder. That is after all, funnest part of blogging.

    October 4, 2007 at 3:57 pm

  25. Yay! It went through! Oh and by the way, you have very pretty feet. Wanted to comment the other day in appropriate post, but was on google-reader… lol.

    I read your blog almost every day and enjoy it lots. Thanks for sharing.

  27. Krystal

    I admit it! I’m a lurker. Sorry!
    I originally found you on a baby website that I had my daughter on. I started reading your blog and didn’t stop.
    I’ll start to comment – I swear!
    Love from Florida!!

  28. Lischka

    Yip, I’m a lurker. I have your blog as a tab on my firefox so as soon as I connect I immediately check out your blog (& Jane’s and Ashleigh’s for that matter) … but yip I VERY rarely comment, actually don’t even read any comments made by others either, just love to read your updates and what’s going on in your life. You make me feel sane as you almost always write about stuff I go through! BTW I totally agree with Jane re: Wenchy’s comment 🙂 So a bit late but Happy Delurking Day!!

    I still read too. Not daily. I love knowing it’s not just me. I also love hearing about SA. I like being able to talk about things to my mil and sil. Sometimes I know more than them he he! I should comment more. I’ll try.

  30. Hi, I love your site and need to say so more often. Your style of writing with the strikeouts never fails to make me smile.

    It is also a look at life in another part of the world. To be able to share from my small rural community in Indiana makes me feel as if I am really getting around.

  31. Wenchy

    You know how I feel about lurkers. Yay me for being quoted. That is just HOT. lol

    October 6, 2007 at 12:52 pm

  32. The delurking movement seemed to work, there are a lot of comments! I am not a lurker in your blog but in case you didn’t know, you were one of the first blogs I read since I started blogging.
