STOP RIGHT HERE!

Alright people, you know I love you.. YOU KNOW IT! But the truth of the matter is.. I don't know you.. My readership has doubled.. (you KNOW I am obsessed with Statcounter)

I am up close to 50 visitors a day now (a mere pittance for most of you bloggers out there) But to be honest, I get only a wee fraction of commentors. I gotta know.. WHO ARE YOU, and HOW DID YOU FIND ME??? (and why don't you comment.. just wonderin')

Now, don't get me wrong... don't be scared. This is exciting! It is like meeting someone at a ward function for the first time! Just say HI! Even if it is the first time you are visiting! I want to visit you too! But, I can't, if I don't know who you are..

I don't have one of those crazy code thingys on my blog.. so just do it quick. I promise it won't hurt... THRILL me.. Give me 50 comments.. Just do it. Even a "Hi" is ok.. You don't have to be clever. I promise! Anything will do.

Just consider it a favor to someone who is moving to a new land next Monday. Maybe I am just feeling a little insecure... and, I want to know that even though I am moving to a place where I know no-one, and no-one knows me.. I still have a "world" of friends out there ready to support me.. :)

Love,

Lindsey

Boca Raton, FL: Cheater
Rochester, NY: Cheater
Irvine, CA: Cheater
Eugene, Or: Cheater (I probably even know you, since I used to live there! You even have me on your reader and you STILL didn't comment!!!)

HAHA! This is so fun to call you all out! (Even though I don't know your names, or who you are.. but I do have your IP address...so.. watch out!

Ft. Wayne, Indiana: Cheater
Ephrata, WA: Cheater
Spokane, WA: Cheater
New York, NY: Cheater

Now you cheaters are just making me feel bad! I don't get a comment, even if I BEG for one??? :)

Jahn, I KNOW YOU checked my blog.. you just wanted to be called a cheater on purpose!
And tell your friend in
BILLINGS, MT: They are a cheater too!

ANOTHER cheater from SLC, UT: Who knew people from there were cheaters?
ANOTHER cheater from Spokane, WA: I KNEW people from here are cheaters...

For those of you keeping track.. That is 19 cheaters, and 13 commenters.

MOM and DAD! You guys are cheaters!! Learn how to post a comment!!! :)
Ohhhhhh Brisbane, Australia: Cheater: But if I knew you, I would come and visit you.
Las Vegas, NV: Cheater: I know, you were just googling for cupcakes... Understandable.
and a couple more Spokane Cheaters for Good Measure.

Hey you know I check your blog. Thanks for coming to dinner tonight. I hope you had a good time. Let me know if you want to go for pedicures tomorrow. And if anyone else is reading this and wants to join, let me know.

I just clicked on your name from the sign-ups for Kelly's swap...I figure it's a good way to meet fellow bloggers.

I sure know what you mean about seeing your stat counter rise but not the comments. I don't know why people are so afraid to leave a comment...I always introduce myself.

Anyways, your site is beautifully put together...love the cherries! I need a complete make-over but will need to hire a professional for that one!

Good luck on your move. My daughter just finished up her first year at ASU in Tempe and loved it. She is home in CA for the summer but will be returning in the fall.

I've made a few wonderful blog friends with women who live in AZ...Gilbert area. I could always forward on your info to them if you would like.

Take care and have fun with the swap!

Hi.

Jan said...

Well your moving to where my son is on a mission right now. He loves it. I clicked here from Lindas site. I have met alot of bloggers just by checking out their readers too. AZ is a great place to grow your kids. My niece lives there in Gilbert and loves it. I still live in WA. Good luck with that and I like the look in here. You don't have to mosey on my blog and say thanks for commenting okay. If you choose to stop by, just look at our goofy life. But I do understand about the commenting thing. I have people constantly saying that they read my blog and I had no idea. Its fun just to meet new people. Have a great day and good luck with the move. Your family looks beautiful..

Melissa-Mc said...

Lindsey, I'm here for you and I support you :) Many people are shy. When I was new to the blogging world, it took a couple of people to "introduce" themselves before I realized how the social world of blogging works.

Hope your move goes real smooth and that you love your new city.

Nicole said...

Hi! I will finally leave a comment after "lurking for a few weeks". I found you from a long line (little sussy, stie, blogopolozza...)I don't have my own blog so I am always hesitant to make a comment. I love your sense of humor and your ablility to find joy in difficult things. Thanks. Glad to be one of fifty.

Jeanelle said...

You crack me up -- you and your 50 hits a day. I'm thrilled when I get 20. You just be grateful for what you got, missy! lol Hope everyone comes out of hiding for you today.

Tina said...

Hi! I am no longer a "closet" visitor and I'm so glad! You even come and read my blog....as insignificant as my life may be. Thanks! I'm glad I found you through "Travelinoma, and Gab blog" I think it was the interview Gab did of you...
You're great! Good luck on the move.

Christie said...

I always have a ton less commenters. I think of them as secret admirers.

Lindsey said...

Doing pretty poorly still only about 1/2 and 1/2.. But to those who commented.. THANK YOU! Especially Nicole and Linda.. for de-lurking.. I admit, I have problems with lurkers! Maybe I should be more like Stie...

Bridget said...

Be flattered so many people think you're so cool from afar. I wish I were a lurker. Then I'd come out of the lurking closet right now and declare my admiration for you.

abbyandcompany said...

You are a total freak show.

Lene said...

Hey Lindsey.
I have left a comment before -- so technically I am not delurking. I really don't remember how I found your blog, but you make me laugh. When you get down here to AZ and settled in we need to have a blog party so all of the AZ bloggers can get together and meet. I am in Queen Creek.

aric & jess said...

You are HILARIOUS! You go girl with your 50 hits! I'm still not to your celebrity yet, but when I am, I will totally call people out!

Tami said...

Hi. I found your blog from Groundhog Day. It's fun to read and I love the cherries. Good luck in your move!

Tammy said...

I guess I can help you in your quest for more comments. I usually read your blog on my reader while I am at work, but it blocks out actually visiting your site.

Ilene said...

Ha, I am no lurker. I have always wanted to do something like this but have been too chicken.

Hmmm. Eugene, Oregon? I lived there for six years before moving to Spokane (and now Boise). A lot of my friends still blog from there. Perhaps you should give me their IP address so I can see if I can find a match with and of my friends'?

Eugene, you will be de-lurked.

You are so funny. I love calling out the lurkers. I did a post on it once and had a picture of girls peeking into an abandoned house. It was funny.
It cracks me up when people say they don't dare do a post on it. Why not!!?? It's awesome!!!!!
Good luck with the snoop-doggies out there :)

Lauralee said...

too funny.. hello.. I just found you last week or so, after gab blogged about you and your tall self.. so I think I have commented before.. I need to put you on my google reader, cause I forget about blogs I don't have listed..
anyway.. hi and good luck with your move.. look forward to hearing how it goes..
enjoy the sun!

Lorena said...

I just saw your comment. I love AZ! Where exactly are you moving to?

We can be friends, but I heard you are really tall and I am only 5'0.

Email me at seeleyfamily5@gmail.com and we'll figure it all out.

Penny said...

You crack me up!! I can't believe that you are moving on MONDAY!! That's sad :(

Melissa said...

Too funny. I don't want to be called out, I came over from Celia's. (who I don't know from Adam. LOL.

Tricia said...

This is my first time to your blog....found you from cJane, thought your comment about "too many kids not to be mine" was funny.

And then your blog name was a delightful surprise....my sister is a Lindsey Long Legs, too.

And I love the cherry background. Haven't read more than this post, but sure didn't want to be called a cheater. :)

Tiffany said...

You are a RIOT!!! I, myself am somewhat of a little blogstalker. So when I see comments on my blog I LOVE it! I'm with you...if you're going to take the time to read my blog...LEAVE ME A COMMENT! But then again I guess you have to consider that there are probably some real weirdos out there! BTW I'm friends with Amy Jorgenson.

Elizabeth Caldwell said...

I know I've commented before... but by golly, I'm not going to allow myself to be lumped in with the unseen masses...

:)

i'm kelly said...

you know i check... i almost always comment. i'm the one for irvine. and how did i find you? probably christie, or who knows one of the blogapolooza gals probably.

The Grant Family said...

Hello! My name is Stephanie and this is my first time to your site. My friend Leah Fotheringham from your stake told me how you called out all the lurkers and she thought it was pretty funny. She had been luring on a few sites and I'd just explained to her about the sitemeter works and how you're not always totally anonymous. I just got into blogging recently and I must admit that I am so addicted! I get far more hits than I do comments so I am addicted to checking the sitemeter too.

Good luck in finding all your lurkers and getting more comments!

PS...VERY cute background!

The Grant Family said...

PS Leah said you love the Bachelor/Bachelorette....I'll have to check out your entries when I have a minute. I love those shows too!

Gwen Christensen said...

Did my last long comment post? This blog stuff is so complicated. Congrats on #4- I'm jealous, but Seth cut me off after the last one (the 12 pound baby experience freaked him out). I'm not as organized as you anyway, so maybe it's for the best.
