Out of the Closet - Part 2


So I have done a post like this once before, but I think my reader list has grown considerably since then, SOOOOO today is Blog Lurker come out of the Closet day!

If you read my blog and comment every day, leave me a comment here...
If you read my blog and only comment once in awhile, leave me a comment here...
If you read my blog and have NEVER commented, leave me a comment here...
If this is your first time to my blog, but you think you might come back, leave me a comment here...
If this is your first time to my blog and you are NEVER coming back, first tell me why and then leave me a comment here...
If you fall into none of the above categories, but you're somehow reading this post, leave me a comment here...

PLEASE?! :)

Ummmm...it says "leave me a comment here..." but there's nothin' there to leave it on..right? So they are all going to end up HERE!! Anyway, I'm in the "I read your blog and only comment once in awhile" mainly because I see you just about every day!! LOL

Love, Mom

I guess I fall into I leave a comment everyday category ;). Cute idea. I hope you get a lot of comments. I'm sure you will though as usually you have at least 10 comments per post anyways.

Christina said...

Ok I read everyday, but I don't post a response everytime because we talk all the time! LOL You can always send some of your reader love my way...hahahahhaha muah! I was bored today without you!

South Carolina Mom said...

I read every day and comment once in a while.

Doing as requested....I read your blog occasionally (normally when I don't see you around another board we go to for a bit) but rarely post a comment...something to do with 3 kids, school out for summer and lack of typing time :) Will be thinking of Miss Kennedy in the coming weeks- and I may need to find out more about a halo brace too, but I'll track you down when/if I need to :)

I can't fail to leave a comment after that! I come by occasionally but came today to see how you were coping with the flooding as Clarksville was on the national British news so I guess the situation is pretty bad. How close are you to the flooding?

Placing comment here... I fall into the read your blog every day but only comment ...ummm, well, I've been taking my daughter back and forth to UVA for some medical problems that she has so that takes time out of ones schedule, ya know? Praying for Kennedy and her upcoming surgery on the 2nd, (we will also be making another trip to UVA that day). Praying that God watches over her and your family during the surgery and afterwards and that she remains free of complications.

Patty said...

Wave! I think I fall into one of those categories! ;)

Jana said...

Debbie Yost said...

I think I'd be too afraid to do a post like this and find out just how few lurkers I have. Anyway, here's my comment. Have a great day!

Michelle said...

I don't get a chance to comment every day, but I do try to at least read every day (thanks to bloglines!)

Michelle said...

I am in the "read my blog and have NEVER commented" section. I just started reading recently. I have a one year old with DS and live in East Tennessee. Overall - I just think your blog is entertaining and endearing! Keep up the good work!

Shari said...

I read up on you about every-other-day and I do comment, I think. Have a good day! :)

I read everytime you update thanks to my google reader, but I only comment on occassion. Kennedy is on my calendar so that I remember to pray on surgery day(yes, I have to write these things down!) & I'm also very excited that you and the kids are going to get to see your hubby again soon!

Becky said...

I think I told you I read your blog when I emailed awhile back, but I haven't ever commented, so here you go.

anyway, I have been thinking about you guys alot lately with Kennedy's surgery coming up so quickly and am praying for you all! (including Frank :)!)

Kim said...

I read ya everyday and comment every once in awhile--but leaving more comments recently.

Anyone who shares my love of Montgomery Inn Ribs is a good friend of mine!!!

StephthefutrRxDr said...

Read your blog everyday and comment sometimes, love your blog and your kiddos!

Sharon said...

I have read your blog through the link on the 'Gifts' website (which I found soon after having my son a couple of months ago). I have never left a comment, but enjoy reading your blog and think your children are all beautiful!

Mom of Army Brats. said...

I dont wanna leave a comment here, i wanna leave a comment THERE!! So there i left a comment

Cammie Heflin said...

Renee, I read it! I wanted to also let you know that I'm participating in our local Relay for Life tomorrow night and I have Kennedy's name on a Star supporting her fight!

Tess said...

OK, i confess I am a blog lurker, I dont even know how I came about your blog, but I loved reading it so came back for more and eventually subscribed to it!
I'm in Australia, so your blog is worldwide!

Meg said...

I came across your blog from your carepage many months ago and am a regular follower checking it everyday. So I guess I fall into the "regular" category, but have never left a comment until today. I love your blog, keep it up!

SunflowerMom said...

Hello! I read often and comment sometimes. I think of you and your family pretty regularly!

Debbie said...

Hello! I'm subscribed and read every day, but don't comment as often as I should. :)

Kim said...

I obsessively read your blog. I check several times a day. I'm what you might call a blog stalker. Although, I'm not sure why because I usually talk to you every day, but sometimes I still get to learn new things.

Kathy said...

I read your blog every day, faithfully. I only comment when I feel I can be witty, supportive, or somehow add some value, but I'm always here, honest.
Hugs,
Kathy

Jessica said...

Hi Renee!! Just thought I would say hello!!

Michelle said...

Hi! I try to comment as much as I can, but you know things get in the way - I get stuck in my google reader a lot lately.

kntsmom said...

I read everyday, but have never commented. I am a Navy Wife and I found you while looking for Military wives. Thanks for keeping it real, you children are beautiful. My husband was in Kuwait for a year and is due home anyday now, so I pray for your family too. Hugs, Kim

TheAngelForever said...

Hey there - just wanted to say hello to you and the Special K's. Great idea to do this every once in a while to see how many people will be nice and cooperate.

Leslie said...

I found this blog from someone elses site..yIPEEE im coming back! I have 4 kiddos too!!!!!!

Many blessings,Leslie

His Doorkeeper said...

I've seen you comment on my daughter's blog and now you have left one on mine. I think you have an awesome family. Blessings!

countryjacket said...

I read your blog daily and think that your family is a true inspiration. :-)

Mindy said...

I read your blog 3 to 4 times a day :) (thanks to google reader) and I comment every once in awhile. I would comment more, but I always feared it would annoy you guys!

Laurie said...

I fall into the read your blog and only comment every once in awhile...but peeking out to say hello today!

disneydad2kj said...

Ok baby so you know I read your blog everyday i just dont leave comment i just immediately tell you lol. I love you

Jaimie said...

I read you from my reader! I might have commented once or twice before, but since I don't know you well - only from DownSyn posts...I tend to hang back :)

You sure do have some GREAT kids!

Jaimie (shimmeringstars)

Anonymous said...

I absolutely love your blog, always find it interesting, think you are an awesome Mom, your kids are all beautiful, I keep Kennedy on my prayer list. I have never commented before, I found you thru Kennedys Carepage. I read there because a very dear friend of mines 3 yr old granddaughter has ALL so I got introduced to Carepages, read Kennedys and the rest is history. Thanks for letting me peek into your life. Wishing you rainbows and sunshine.

patricksnona said...

Okay, I just posted above, took me forever to figure out HOW to post a comment, and now I learned how I can do it without being anonymous! :-)

Lynn said...

I think this is a shameless way to get comments on your site. But hey, whatever works! Looks like it worked!
Know that I'm here praying as always!

Lisa & Gerald said...

heheheh I read your blog every day but comment once in a while
I can't go a day with out reading your blog hehehhe
Hope you have a great weekend !

Joy said...

I read your blog EVERY day. Sorry that I don't comment often. I read and pray for your family every day!

Me said...

I read everyday, but don't always comment. Depends on my mood! LOL. And I agree with C...send some of your readers my way....but I'm WAY too boring!

Cynthia said...

I read here and on your CarePage as often as I can, (yea, Google Reader!) and have a special place in my heart for your Kennedy.
Of course I am including you all in my prayers as this surgery comes up. Can't believe the hoops you've had to jump through!
I fit in the comments once in a while group. Because I usually have 5 or 6 interruptions while I try to do it! (at least!)

Lori & Family said...

I read your blog and only comment once in awhile

Lisa Turner said...

I would fall into the category that I read your blog every day, and only comment once in a while. I love keeping up with your Special K's and you and Frank too.

We had a good time when you visited at the fire house...I hope you all enjoyed it!

Again, give Kennedy a big hug and kiss from us before surgery on the 2nd. We are always praying for you guys! Yippee, you get to see Frank soon! Give him a hug from us too, and tell him THANK YOU!

Oh, I probably fall into the read every day category and try to comment as much as possible category. LOL I need to get signed up for google reader though!

Stacy said...

I'm a reader, but have never commented. I think you have a beautiful family!

Tammy said...

Hi from Cincinnati! I follow your blog frequently. You are such an inspiration, however I have never commented. We did trade emails once regarding your CCHMC appointment. My prayers are with you for Kennedy's surgery.

i comment once in a while but read every day! you "K's" are all so very cute!!!!

~Melissa~ said...

I read every day and try to comment most times too!! I love checking in on you and your gorgeous kiddos.

RK said...

Good idea, Renee... I'm with Debbie Yost, though. I'd probably get my hopes up for a big response and find there weren't as many lurkers as I thought!

Holly said...

Hello there! I'm a frequent reader, but have never left a comment until now. Don't really remember how I stumbled upon your blog. Maybe it was from Mimi's carepage (does that make sense? - if not, I have no idea). I found Mimi's carepage from reading the Because I Said So blog - everybody seems to read that one. Anyway, I continue to read because I think you have a very nice family and I enjoy reading about them. Take care!

Mary Snooks said...

I read mostly every weekday! Love catching up with my CBU pals - even though we didn't know each other tooooo well then I am glad we reconnected! I am always excited to read the Garcia family adventures!

LaForestGump said...

I fall into the "read every few days" catagory...this blogging thing is addictive! Thanks for the "Puffy heart" I love your blog too!

Jenn said...

I found you through a comment of yours on another blog I read , so I came over to check you out(well that doesn't sound right) and added you to my list I read!

waldenhouse said...

Awww, look at all your supporters! Add me to the list.

Mandy Greene said...

Renee, I met you at a Children's Clinic focus group. And strangely enough I found your blog through the leaf chronicle and recognized you from the focus group. I have been a dedicated reader since then. You have inspired me to do my own blog about my new baby. I check yours daily and enjoy it so much. I do not see how you have to time to do all you do. I am praying for your family to have a safe trip and a wonderful outcome!

rae said...

Hey Renee... just popping in... have a great day.

I love to read your blog and see what new things yall are doing! I am totally amazed by you Renee! You are super mom. So now I am commenting, and I may even do it more often:)

Cristy said...

I read a few times per week and I think I've commented a couple of times.

Jennifer said...

trying to comment, but it keeps giving me some duplicate error message.

Anonymous said...

I read your blog occasionally but have never commented. I have a son with DS and love reading about other families with DS children:)

Becca said...

Okay, I'd say, as of recently, I read your blog almost every day, and think I have commented a couple of times, so that makes me an occasional commenter. :-) Cool idea for a post, Renee--this way you really see who's visiting you!

Mallory Kennedy said...

Hey Renee. I read your blog everyday, but just figured out how to comment. HAHA. I love it. Sometimes I laugh, sometimes I cry, but everyngiht I have to check it. Goodluck with packing and traveling. And as always I am praying for yall!!!

I dont know how you do it!! your kids seem like great kids! good luck in Philly!

I can't wait until Kennedy get all better from this next surgery. I'm praying for all of you and Kennedy will do just fine.
Love from TEXAS,

Mary said...

I read your blog about five days a week and try to post a comment at least once a week!

Anonymous said...

Well....good idea. I read very frequently. I am pregnant with #3 and am wondering how this is going to work. I read your posts and know that things will be okay :) God has the plan not me but that's sure hard to let go. You're an inspiration to a lot of people. We will be praying everything goes well!

Yo Mamma Mamma! said...

You are on my Google reader and I hardly ever comment! But I sure do enjoy your blog!

Rebecca said...

Me too!

Stephanie said...

You're missing the "Other.... here". I don't comment everyday, but more than once in a while. LOL

Shannon @ Gabi's World said...

I guess I am a commentor occasionally since I read too many blogs to keep up with each of them on a daily schedule.Well that and 5 kids, 2 jobs and a husband keep me pretty busy, too!

Susan said...

Just started reading your blog and I just commented on the more recent post. Love your blog!

Rachel said...

I pop in on occasion, but NEVER comment - I'm more of a lurker :) Love your blog, thanks for stopping by mine time to time.

Christina said...

I read your blog through my google reader. I stop by once in a while to comment.

Hugs,

Blogging is fairly new for me and this post was my 1st visit to yours. (I follow you guys on downsyn though). Thanks for including my little blog on your blogroll.

Anonymous said...

I am a catchin'up reader of your blog . . . I don't visit daily but every once in a while I look and read through to see what I have missed. Thus I am always catchin' up! I envy your dedication and have even been inspired to start my own blog but my lack of discipline (and interesting tid bits or kids to tell about) makes my blog pathetic. So much so, I have not told anyone I have one or where to find it! - LOL I pray for you regularly that God will give you strength, encouragement and peace. Even though you are far away, we never got the chance to become really close, and you did not name one of your children after me ;- ). . . I am proud to be your sister in Christ, I love you and I hope our friendship continues even in the after.

Be Magnificent!
