International Blog Delurking Week

Okay Mel posted that this week is International Blog Delurking Week (Jan. 6th - 13th) and I thought: "How cool" is a chance to see those who quietly follow your blog.

Then Shannon also has a post this week urging lurkers to come out and say "Hi!" and I thought: "Still really cool!!"

Shannon posted about how people might come across her blog through a Google search on Bradley Cooper's abs because she posted about that 2 years ago...I remember that post!

I just find it funny because according to my stats people come across my blog by Googling: "universal pain assessment tool" because of this post "Making Eggs and Eggless in New Jersey!" and another Googled items that has people stumbling upon my blog is "legend of the dreambox" because of this post "My Dreambox".  You know what's funny...I even had someone email me asking if I distribute Dreamboxes to retail stores...HUH???

Now of course I am curious! So my lovely lurkers..."Come out, come out wherever you are!" and say "Hi!"

And of course, those that comment frequently please say "Hi!" too! You are my lifeline!

Lurkers and non-lurkers alike, tell me how you stumbled across my blog.

So, last night before I drifted off to sleep I was thinking about all the blog posts rolling around in my head that need to escape and what I was going to post about next and BAM!! The perfect post popped into my head.

I smile and thought: "Yes, that is what I will write about next."

And I drifted off to never-never land...

Well this morning...

I am sure you all know where this is going!

Well this morning...

Of course I am clueless!! I have no idea what I was thinking and can't remember!! But what I do remember is that is was a really good post!

How does that happen??


So lurkers and non-lurkers...does this happen to you? What gems have you lost while drifting off to slumber land?



  1. I hope the lost post idea comes back to you. That sort of thing happens to me constantly. Frustrating.

    I've been following your blog for so long that I don't remember how I found it. My best guess is that it was through another blogger's page.

  2. *waves* found this blog through a blogger's page maybe two or three weeks ago.

  3. I can't remember for sure how I found your blog but I think it was from a comment you'd left on Shannon's blog. I've been hooked on you ever since :)

  4. Hi! Been following a couple of years, not sure how I originally got here.

  5. Hi! I have been following you for a few years and I think I post comments occationally but I can't remember! I think I found you through someone else's blog. It has been too long! Hope your awesome post idea comes back to you and you get to blog about it!

  6. Hi! I'm one of your new lurkers!

    I can usually only remember my dreams for moments after I wake up. They are always wonky but have some sort of tie to things happening in my life.

    Sweet dreams tonight!

  7. Hi! I'm pretty sure we are mutual followers, as you have commented on my blog, and I have followed you for quite some time now.

    It is always funny to see how googlers end up on our blogs. For mine, it used to be the search words "babies with ESP" that directs them to my blog! Although, paranoia over IRL friends finding my blog led me to deactivate the google accessibility.

  8. I can't remember how I came across your blog...probably in someone's blogroll. Anyhow, I love it! Can't wait to see where your journey takes you. :)
