the mommyhood memos: who are you?!

who are you?!

Hey you! Do I know you? Have I visited your blog lately??

Recently I've been getting a few emails from people that have started something like this... "I've been reading your blog for a while now but have never commented or written, and I just wanted to let you know....... fill-in-the-blank-here......"

It's been really fun! But it's also made me realize that I probably don't have a clue about who is really reading this thing.

So, if that's you... if you're reading but have never introduced yourself... Come out, come out, wherever you are! I'd love to meet you. Please leave a comment to introduce yourself!

Also, if I've never visited your blog (or haven't in a long time) then please help me out and leave me a link to one of your recent or favorite posts. I'm sometimes organized when it comes to blogging... and sometimes not so much. So do me a favor and help me find your blog! I'd love to visit.

Oh, and one more thing, make sure your blogger account has an email registered as your "reply to" address so that I can email you back! (I've tried responding to so many people lately and have gotten a return message saying you've not left an email address. Makes you incredibly hard to reach ladies!!!)

Dear friends, I hope you had a nice weekend. Thanks for your patience with me as I try to check out your blogs!!

glad to meet you,

This is fun! I actually wrote a post months ago titled "Come out, come out where ever you are" Ha ha. I asked my 'silent readers' to introduce themselves. I met a ton of my readers that I could have possibly never heard from before. It was great!

I have to say I have the quietest bunch of readers around. I don't have as many followers as you do, but around 180. I see based on my analytics that people visit, but they don't comment. It's funny you go to some blogs and there are 400 comments on a post that is just a picture of a piece of cake. I could write that I won the lottery and hardly get a peep! Anyway, I read your blog often, and enjoy it!

Silent reader revealing herself! I found your blog a little while ago and was immediately won over by the obvious love and happiness radiating from every post. It's just so wonderful :)

Hi Adriel! Don't think I've ever commented here before. Anyway, my name is Ilze, I live in Cape Town, South Africa (but moving to Pretoria in April) and my first language is Afrikaans. My wedding is April 30th, so I'm very excited about that! I don't have a blog yet, but want to start one - I'm just a little nervous about posting in English but I guess I'll just have to get over that! Love your blog - even though I'm not a mommy yet, I've learned so much and just can't wait 'till I am! Your son is just adorable! :)

I'm a silent reader too! I just love this post. I may try this on my blog sometime as well. If you'd like to visit, the address is!

Nice to meet you finally!

Good Idea!! I haven't been following your blog for very long so I haven't commented much or at all?? May have to steal this idea sometime!
I love that you put becoming & being a mommy in such a real perspective!!

I am a sporadic commenter... I think it depends on how I read the blogs. If I am on my computer then I am more likely to comment. I really enjoy your blog!

Well, I am getting better about commenting (love the Google Reader "next" button!). I love reading your posts about Levi because he and Silas are so close in age (not even a week apart!). Thanks for your comments on my blog, and I'll try to be less quiet. :)

Me me! I read your blog. I comment (when I have time - in between being a mom to a teenager and toddler, a full time teacher, a wife, friend, daughter and sister). Love getting to meet new people and love being able to interact via social network with other moms.

Nice to meet you ;)

I was at RTO in 2001 and 2002! Found you through Ryan:)

Hey Adriel! I just love reading your blog. We are in the throws of wedding planning and exitedly looking forward to starting our family right away. I'm learning so much in advance! Your blog is a light in my day.

You already know me, but I'm just stopping by to say hi today! It's funny, I usually rush to read what you've written and see pictures. But today I just finally got around to actually looking to your sidebar and noticed your "Upcoming Memos". I love that idea!! It's exciting to see sneak-peeks of what you're working on for coming posts.

Hi Adriel, I come often and I do comment so I don't think I am new to you. But this is a great way to meet your readers. I will be interrested in how it works. Have a wonderful weekend. I can't wait to hear about how your Sunday goes.

I found your blog when I was pregnant last year. Someone had linked to a post of yours with tips for new moms, and I've been reading ever since. You have such a way with words. I'm glad I found you! Oh, and "hello!"

Those emails always get me wondering as well! ;-)
