Apparently...'s De-lurking week, which means all of you out there (who like me!) never comment on other people's blogs, here's your chance! I've been desperately trying to break my bad habit of not-commenting with some small success... if you start commenting, so will I. Deal? :) I think it'll be very satisfying, as there a ton of great blogs I read, and everyone is going through something, and (nice) comments always cheer me up! To go along with de-lurking week, here's this blog meme, sent to me by Tasha:
1.Do you like the looks and the content of your blog?
I adore the look of my blog (Lindsay is brilliant, isn't she?) but if I'm honest, I don't like the content of my blog much... but that's just my self-doubt and poor self-esteem, I'm working on it.
2.Does your family know about your blog?
My husband has the link but he doesn't get a chance to read it often. No one else in my family or my husband's reads it (or has the link), but I sometimes write (guardedly) as if the families did read it. I have issues.

3. Can you tell your friends about your blog?
I've told a few friends, few read regularly though. (Becca, Shadowfalcon and Diane being exceptions! Let me know if there are others)

4.Do you just read the blogs of those who comment on your blog?
Not at all. I'm always looking for new blogs to read, and there are so many out there that are so interesting. I have serious blog-envy for quite a few people...

5.Does your blog positively affect your mind?
Sometimes. I feel better after writing certain things, but every time I go out on a limb writing about something personal, it always makes me feel a little sick. I'm not used to reaching out. I need to work on this.

6.What does the number of visitors to your blog mean?
Ah, I'd like to write some BS about how it doesn't mean much, but I'm shallow. It means everything!

7.Do you imagine what other bloggers look like?
Never. I guess I have a sort of idea in my head about the type of person it is, but I don't consciously think 'brown hair, brown eyes' or anything.

8.Do you think blogging has any real benefit?
For me it does, I guess that's why I've stuck with it for nearly a year (1 year anniversary 27 January, yay!) I feel a little more connected and I get to vent and ramble and no one complains (yet)

9.Do you think that the blogosphere is a stand alone community separated from the real world?
No, I don't think so, but it's not something I've thought about too much.
10.Do some political blogs scare you? Do you avoid them?
They scare the crap out of me, and yes, avoidance is my only option

11.Do you think that criticizing your blog is useful?
No. I've had negative comments before and they've just come across as hurtful more than anything else, and I'm a sensitive soul

12.Have you ever thought about what would happen to your blog in case you died?
Well.. no. Do other people? Isn't that a little morbid for normal people? Or maybe I just don't take this all seriously enough?
13.Which blogger had the greatest impression on you?
Hmm, tough one. I started my old blog because of my husband's funny, funny blogs, but it didn't last (his as well as mine). Then I was inspired to start this after an unlikely friend-turned-blogger sent the link to her new blog. Since then, there have been loads of blogs that have been touching, funny, inspiring, sad, uplifting... but I feel a little put on the spot to single any one of them out.

14.Which blogger do you think is the most similar to you?
That's what I think is great about people's blogs.. there are so many that I feel I can relate to, blogs that I can recognise the same feelings or reactions. (and I'm so not going to pick someone)
15.Name a song you want to listen to?
It's nighttime, so I was just about to put on some softer music, and for me that usually means Sarah McLachlan (how did this relate to the rest of the blog questions?)


  1. I have to admit sometimes I'm not the best commenter. Your blog is very cute! And you little one is adorable. Thanks for visiting my blog!

  2. Lurker here! I really enjoy your blog, thanks!

  3. I'm not a lurker, as such, because I comment from time to time. But Hello! anyway!

  4. I'm such a luker! I have no idea why I do it so much..

  5. I sometimes lurk but I sometimes comment too. I like the look of your blog :)

  6. That was a really personaly tag I don't think I could have done it.

    I do LOVE your new! Hope all is good with you.

  7. i seriously can't remember the trail that led me to start lurking on your blog, but i like to lurk and i like to comment too :)

  8. yay you did the meme~ Its nice. sometimes I have blog envy too, but then I snap out of it!

  9. I liked this meme a lot. I'm not exactly a lurker, but sometimes I guess I just don't know what to say...LOL.

    But here I am, not lurking!

  10. Since I haven't been here before, I can't exactly say I'm delurking.

    I saw your comment on Atasha's blog and wondered where the tornado was.

    England? Hope all are okay.

    Nice blog - I'll start reading backward through your posts now.

    Come visit anytime.
