Yesterday, big son said to me, 'such and such's' Mum reads your blog. Little one piped up and said, 'yeah, so does 'thingamy's' Mum. I pondered this concept.... that I walk into school and people (if they read my blog) know stuff that I do.... the latest goss at Casa A-M.... that Brian is on his last 'leg' :(
It's a funny feeling... because I am a rather private, insular person in real life... hence the 'A-M' ..... a feeble attempt to retain some anonymity. The boys will sometimes ask to look at my site meter stats behind the scenes, "oh look, someone from New York is reading your blog Mum. "They must be reading about our lizards. Why?" Hmmm, good question son.
YOU know me and I don't know you, my reader, at all. Except for my regular commenters (love you guys) and my 'lurkers' (who come out at 'Home Beautiful' times!), I don't know you... and I want to.
Inspired by the ever so stylish Faux Fuchsia, who asked her readers' how did you find me?', I want to know 'who are you'? You're just a little blip on my site meter at present.... the person from 'Oldenburg, Niedersachsen; Istanbul; Brattvg, More og Romsdal, Indre Arna, Hordaland: Austin Texas and Cleveland, Brisbane!
So who are you? Where do you live? Do you have children too? Do you have lizards? Are you building a house? Did I put you off building a house? Does your house have gables and wainscotting and cornices and all that stuff that I love? Or do you live in an apartment like me? Do you too have storage issues? What do you do? Do you have a blog I could visit? I would love to know more about you.
I would love to hear back from you, my readers. I know you're out there because I see you visiting me sometimes... well I see your country pop up anyway! Oh and I don't have a prize for you, like FF (who never knowingly 'undercushions' by the way... go meet her, she's hilarious!) but if you have a blog, I will put it up on my side bar under a special category 'My Readers Who Have Outed Themselves'.... no.... how about 'My Reader's Bloggys'?.... or just 'My Readers'?
I need a bloggy break too.... good timing for this post... stuff to do...can I leave my bloggy in your capable hands this week please?
Over to you.
Miss you already.
