Anyone? Anyone?

The Great Mofo Delurk 2007



I made a button! Well, I copied a button, but it was my first attempt and it actually worked. So there it is! Pretty, no? Thanks, MotherBumper, for telling me it was easy, thus forcing me to figure it out what the "Edit Html" thingy was actually for. I couldn't handle the shame of coming back to you without a button on my page.

Ok, on to business. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE leave me a comment. I'm begging you! That was a little sad. Let me try again. It appears that throughout the blogosphere, people haven't been diligent about leaving comments on the posts that they read. I am guilty of this too, although I try to leave a comment wherever I can think of something relatively intelligent to say. I said "relatively", ok? The truth is, getting a comment lets me know that at least someone is reading, which motivates me to keep writing. Even if you found my site by Googling something else altogether, you can still leave a comment. If you are the person who wanted to know if it is a good idea to eat mac and cheese prior to working out, I could have advised you to go with something with less fat. If you are the person who wanted to know if it is ok to eat mac and cheese while pregnant, hell, I wouldn't have stood in your way! There is a whole wealth of knowledge over here! Kraft Dinner aside, it would be great to hear from you, so delurk already!

Well, Im not delurking, but I would love to know how to create a button. Can you point me in the right direction?

Suzanne said...

Well, alrighty then, I'll delurk! Hi there!

motherbumper said...

Cool! I'm so glad you put it up! Happy to help out (anytime girl, anytime). And while I'm not exactly delurking, I do lurk more often than not.

Honestly, relative intelligence is highly overrated. I wouldn't be able to comment on half the blogs I visit if I had to be somewhat as intelligent as the writers. Actually I'd be pretty silent... but I ain't!

Hi there!

I'm a terrible commenter lately.

It's OK to feed your kid mac and cheese too, right?

b*babbler said...

I like your purrrty button!

It was wonderful to meet you on Sunday!

Well as you know Mac & Cheese is a way of life for me. An old roommate and I had beer and mac & cheese taste tests and let me tell you that together they are not a good combo.

Today I had .99 cent KD microwave single serving. It was snack mac.

Hi. First time caller. From the look of your quick bio, you and I are living parallel lives. Almost. Spoooky.

Her Bad Mother said...

Motherbumper is pretty cool with da buttonz - and the one you made rocks.

I had no idea it was national delurking day, but what the hell - here's a comment to your health!

Gabriella said...

Hello! I just started reading you, hmmm I got here from HBM's site I believe.

Sandra said...

Delurking :)

I am the world's worst commenter. I get in this silly cycle of reading a long list of wonderful blogs (especially including yours) and then telling myself I'll come back and comment later when I have more time. More time? What is that?

But know that I read all your words and am a big fan. So jealous of the gals that got to meet you this weekend!

kgirl said...

I don't think I qualify as a lurker, and I'm also a day late, but congrats on the button mastery!

Redneck Mommy said...

So I'm a day late and a dollar short, it's the thought that counts, right??

I'm a lurker. Ya, I know. Shameful. But I'm uncloaking to wave my arms and say HELLLOOOOOO out there!

As for an intelligent comment...well, you expect a lot my dear...would you just settle if I bent over and gave you a glimpse of my spectacular rack? Works for my husband every time....

Wink, wink!

Bloor West Mama said...

Hello Hello...I am also one date late, but wanted to say hi. At the moment I don't have anything witty or intelligent to say besides 'how are you?'.

Thanks for stopping by and saying hi too:)

-K

p.s. love the button...Motherbumper has to teach too...I am useless on blogger.

Naomi (Urban Mummy) said...

Thought I'd say hi too. Not much to say, though, but my kids did have mac & cheese for lunch today...not the boxed kind, though - homemade!

deb said...

I missed you somehow, sorry. Now you have fifteen comments. Yay!

petite gourmand said...

I'm actually not de-lurking, just found you today.

hello hello.

must figure out how to do one of those button thingies.
