Apparently I am more in tune with the rhythms of the blogging world these days than I realized.
I don't worry much over blog stats anymore, but this morning I happened to notice the little badge over there to the right - the "turq-green" (as Nadia would say) one that currently shows "248 Readers." That means there are 248 people out there who subscribe to this lil ol' blog, 248 people who read whatever gibberish I happen to throw up here. WOW, that's a lot of people!
And then, as I was marveling at that and skimming through my Google Reader, I came upon a few posts that referred to today being National DeLurking Day. Heh, who knew?! Obviously not me. ;o) But how serendipitous is this timing?!
In the blog world, a "lurker" is anyone who reads but doesn't leave a comment, and today is the official day to come out from behind the corner and say, "hi! I'm here!"
This made me wonder what other wacky "official days" there are, and look what I found!! Haha! Apparently today is also National Dress Up Your Pet Day. Get ready to celebrate...Bubble Wrap Day, Rid The World of Fad Diets Day, and Inane Answering Message Day are all coming later this month!
Anyway, that makes now the perfect opportunity to ask -
Who ARE all you people?!
This place is just the simple, often uninspired, journal of our lives, and it amazes me that so many people are along for the ride. I'd love to know who's out there, and why you read. I'd love to get to tell you thanks for checking in.
Will you please click the comment button and say hi?
And a couple photos, because no post is complete without photos. :o) And yes, Nadia does love to pose these days.
