Am happy today - my chicken pox has nearly left me (oh happy days) and this is my 200th post!
I started blogging six months ago to get into the habit of writing everyday, keeping family and friends up to date and to become part of the blogsphere. I was soon taken aback at how many people took the time to visit my blog, and to comment on my posts. To be part of the blogging community, even in such a small way, stopped me from feeling isolated when writing at home.
I checked my feedburner stats today and I have 75 subscribers to this blog. I'm amazed to have even half that readership, mainly because I post about random stuff that I get a kick out of but that isn't deep, political, ranty, depraved and/or technical. To everyone who subscribes and/or visits - thank you. The fact that you like the same random stuff as I do, and enjoy timewasting to the same degree, makes me feel all gooey inside. But I'm also aware that I haven't had contact with some of you.
So...I think that I'm going to take this chance for a de-lurking ceremony, because it's my blog and de-lurking is pleasing to me. For those not familiar with the term, take it away random Google page:
Lurking: to read but not comment on a chat room/blog.So in other words if you are reading this post, either on the website, by reader or in an email, why not make a poxy girl very happy and leave a comment, for today only if you prefer. Doesn't have to be profound (like my blog in fact) just a simple "howdy" will do. Thank you.
De-lurking: To finally type in a comment after "lurking" in a chat room/blog for some time.
