are there lurkers here? seriously?

hello? are you out there?
i always figure there's like 6-10 people checking this thing on the reg.
then....receiving tips that there are people who read my blog and don't post comments?
quote-unquote-"lurkers"..
why don't you comment?
do you disagree with what i say?
do you hate what you see?
do you roll your eyes?
do you not have enough time?
it's ok. i don't mind. not at all.
but i must admit i am a bit curious.
i don't really care to keep up with tracking how many visitors, etc. come to this blog.
but it doesn't mean i don't care to know.
because i really. am. interested.
seriously.
i have loved getting to know people in this crazy scrapland. loved it.
and now, i must get some sleep.
so, if you're a lurker, post a comment. if you're not, post a comment.
i just wanna know. so sue me ;)

Thanks for sharing!

you know I'm always reading ;)
because I miss my Gen!!

Jewels said...

I'm here! I read, I rarely comment on blogs because I don't know what to say! (not so clever, I guess. ;o)

Tami said...

hi. i'm not a lurker but sometimes i just want to read not type. a lot of people are questioning why people don't leave comments on their blogs. i left one yesterday after i bought all your paper up and a few other things. and the note about the homeless person was touching.

Stacy said...

Hi Gen... I lurk for artistic inspiration and always find it here. Thanks so much for sharing what you do!

jills said...

Good morning girlie! Hey - I read your blog everyday - I don't post everyday though (so I guess I'm a semi-lurker) - probably for no other reason than I wouldn't want you to get sick of me! And if I have ever rolled my eyes at you it's been in the "oh my gosh - you're too cute" kind of way!

ArtsyMama said...

Hi sweetie! I'm here...but you probably knew that. I love your blog. Love finding out what your up to and gleaning some inspiration from your *fab* work. Waving hello!!!

hi Gen! lovely blog. I read, but am a bad commentor! :)

Arika said...

Hee hee...this is my first time visiting your blog. I linked over from the Dare blog. :)

staceyfike said...

i only comment sometimes, huh? so does that make me a bad or good lurker? lol!!

Jamie said...

Non lurker Jamie, checking in. :)

Anonymous said...

Total lurker, and you called me on it. Just nothing interesting to say, so i only read and leave.

see, told you so

Janine said...

I'm a German-lurker:-)! I love your work, you are so inspiring, that's why I read your blog.
I totally understand that you are curious, I would be, too!

Carrie K said...

**lurker**
i like your stuff, i like your attitude, i like your writing...so i check and read. I might have commented once or twice but its intimidating when you dont "know" someone and i certainly dont want you to think im a stalker (although i guess i sorta am...lol)

so, anyways, thanks for being interesting :)

Jennifer said...

Another lurker here! Not sure why, but I mostly read and don't write comments. :)

Lilyanna said...

I guess I'm a semi-lurker... Luv your papers...We met during CHA, I was the girl who gave you guys a ride to In-N-Out...So yeah, I read your blog, like, everyday..

gloriarose said...

Ok, ok I'm a lurker.
I only don't post commets, because I'm scared to.
But I have posted on yours.
And I won the free style book here!
Thanks for that.
I really love all your work.
I only lurk to see layouts.
And yours inspire me so.
Thanks for blogging.

I always read your blog but I dont comment much. Not because I dont think you have mad talent, you do! Not because I dont have anything interesting to say, I might. Mostly because I feel like the girl at the jr. high dance sitting along the wall, afraid to move onto the floor. Wow, does that sound like a layout waiting to happen or WHAT?!?!

Heather M. said...

i'm a lurker too! i mostly read while holding my 3 month old so i don't usually have the hands/time to type but still love to read and totally love your work!

Mandi said...

I lurk because I feel that if you don't know me, you wouldn't care. But I just reciently started my own blog and I LOVE to get comments, and I don't care whothey are from. So I am determined to comment on the blogs I "lurk" at. Thanks for all the great inspiration...love your work and your blog!

darl_jo said...

ok - you caught me... i'm the lurker. I come here constantly looking for updates... i know, i'm a looser.

I totally idolize your work. I don't comment, well, because i'm just the lowly peon stalking the awesome scrapper LOL. No, seriously, i just don't cause i don't know you and you don't know me and well..... i guess it's just so kinda weird.

But i'm like you, i wanna know who comes to mine too... so i guess i should speak up once in a while huh?

Hi! Lurker turned poster from Miami. Just wanted to say CONGRATULATIONS on making the Scrapologie DT. How exiting to get to see your wonderful pages every month.
Kudos to ranjini for choosing you.

Stumbled across your blog via the effer dares page. I usually don't post on any blogs I read just because I am usually feeding the babe when I am reading blogs :)

Kathy said...

Love your art that's why I lurk

Meredith said...

Lurker from Idaho here. New to blogging, no one ever leaves comments on mine either and I wish they would. So my new goal is to comment once in while and maybe it'll come back to me! Thank you for the inspiration, you're cool.

Alison said...

hey hey hey :)

JoAnn said...

I am the same way. Met you at Oasis- been checking your blog since...also- never realized that the group of seriously fun 20 somethingish girls that we were talking to (and ran into at CHA) were THE EFFERS. Wow, sorry 'bout that. I will have to say- I loved how friendly you were, and I loved watching you guys and thinking about my girlfriends and I in our pre-family days. I would have loved a hobby like this back then. I even wrote about it in my blog. Now I know you have a family though, don't I? That's the beauty of the blog- isn't it?

Cate said...

I'm a lurker. I started reading your blog just after Elsie's classes at TofM last March. My friend Jenn brought your books back for you (and you got me hooked on Compendium books because I read them on the way back *S*). I Absolutely LOVE all your mini books! I'm addicted to mini books.

Are you going to be at Artistry by chance? If so I'll introduce myself. And congrats on the Scrapologie design team! I look forward to seeing your stuff every month!! Hugs!!

*~*Jocelynne*~* said...

I read it all the time! I just usually don't have much to say on the topic, and when I do have something to say, I comment. So there you go! ;)

Tammy said...

Hello my name is Tammy...and I am a lurker. Just love to read about people and their lives, their thoughts. I too don't comment because never know what to say. Love your paper..fellow Canadian!!

dinah said...

i check out your blog almost everyday. love your work. you live in the lower mainland as do i. not many scrapper/bloggers from around here that i have come across on the net. just curious.

Araxi said...

Total lurker here! Love your work! Not sure why I dont post comments probably because I dont want to say anything dorky lol

amyk said...

Ok, yeah I check out your blog at least a couple times a week. Just love to get inspiration and get a kick out of your writings as well. I live in west Phoenix - don't hate me because I'm not cold... But, Mom's family is from (and still in) Toronto area. Maybe someday I'll have a blog and I'll let you know and you can "lurk" me back :)

Tammy said...

yes, i admit it - i'm a lurker. i love your pages and i like to see what you've come up with. don't really comment too much. i'll try to be more vocal. thanks for the inspiration.

Anart Island Studio said...

Hi...;-))

Another lurker here!
I love your work and mostly I go for the visual inspiration, meaning: I do not always read....but I do love your blog and come around on a regular basis...!!

And I know what you mean: I would die to find out a bit more about who is reading my blog, too!!!

Greetings from Berlin, Germany

Mari from Norway said...

Oh, I am so sorry!I have been here a couple of times, and look at the beautiful work you have been doing! I feel bad that i am just here "stealing" inspiration, without even thanking you for it...So THANK YOU!! I am obviously one of those blogger readers who just read without leaving a trace.(think I would have been better if a had a blog of my own...!?)

Please keep updating this blog, I love looking at what you have done!!

Love,
Mari from Norway

Carola said...

Hi, I don't lurk as often, but I do browse in the morning when I come in to work and I want some inspiration for the day. I found your page through Ali E -> Kristina C -> The Dares (I LOVE following each dare). Sorry if the lurking is a bit creepy, but I do like your layouts.

Well, this is the first time I am reading your blog... WHY and HOW did I get here?

Well, I have your freestyle book.. and I saw a page you made about PANIC... I loved it... the way you captured panic... I was curious if you are having panicattacks just like I do... it was very emotional for me to see that page... it's one of my favorites right now...

And ofcourse because you are a great scrapper...

have a nice day
Emine
