Do me this favor.

Thursday, September 4, 2008

For the first time, I have to admit it and ask for forgiveness. I've been a bad blogger this week, from the lack of posts, to relative non existence of my commenting. It's really sad and there appears to be no end in sight,as Tony and I are on our way to Northern WI right now, to spend time with his group of friends from college.

Now the favor I ask is simple, and I'll be short, as this is the 3rd time I've rewritten this on my blackberry!

Please tell me who you are, how you think you found me, and why you read. I'm obviously very interested in the why, as I've struggled with this recently. Sometimes I just have no idea why you do! Lol.

I'd really appreciate your participation in doing me this favor, from the bloggers I feel that I know to the 50+ lurkers I know are out there!

I, for one, am new. And apparently I'm delurking.


I come here because I like it. Plain and simple, like jeans and a t-shirt. :)

Leah said...

Hi, another Leah here.

I've been lurking on your blog for a couple of weeks now. I found you through "My Life In Transition" and I just joined Twenty Something Bloggers (which I discovered through your blog).

Great blog!

Joi said...

I am a mostly lurker/sometime poster on the nest and saw your blog link there. Your posts on the nest always seem fun and sweet. And you seem like the kind of girl I could be friends with IRL!

I like reading your blog because of your sincere honesty you put out there and fresh perspective.

: )

ka1t_lyn said...

ha. i guess my lurking status has been revealed, huh? i think i found your blog through my life in transistion, or possibly wedding bee.

i like your thoughts. you and your husband are what i hope my boyfriend and i will be like in a few years.

plus, i strangely feel like you are easy to relate to. so you're on my reader. :)

Kelly said...

I'm not sure how I found you. Maybe you commented on my blog? Maybe through In Her Shoes or My Life in Transition? Not sure.

I like your honesty.

Dr. Erin and Mr. Heath said...

Hello, my love. You know how I found you. Because I'm a stalker like that. And, I read because I must know what you're up to at all times.
K?
Love ya
Erin

Hi there, first time to stumble across your blog! Lurking creeps me out so I always leave a comment if I plan to spend more than 5 seconds on your blog (I wish people would do the same for me!!!)I like your "about me" section! :) Similarities: I'm a wanna be runner...wanna be shutter bug for sure...married..I attempt to be Monica Gellar (Martha sorta freaks me out) and I'm a dog owner - no cats b/c allergic. I feel as though God has blessed me too! Nice to meet you! :)

Sara said...

Hi, I'm a lurker. I really dont know how I found your blog. Perhaps it was through blogger...like one of my other blogs has you on their blogroll..dunno.

I really like reading your blog because you show a really honest perspectiver on things. I was drawn in to your blog during the whole neighbor/fence fiasco!

Keep up the great writing and I will keep reading :)

AmberDenae said...

I think I found you through "In Her Shoes". I love your blog, it is very down to earth and many of your posts I can relate to. Not to mention, you're a great writer and you seem like a really awesome, sweet and talented person! So, do us all a favor and keep writing! haha I've been slacking this week on the poasting as well, guilty! It seems as though most of us have actually. Perhaps it has something to do with the long weekend? Hope you're enjoying your little getaway!

E & A said...

I am a lurker too. I found your blog through the msp nest. I like it because it's fun and real and gives me something to do when I don't want to do homework!

KG said...

Hello Dahling
My old Nestie buddy! I'm no lurker, but I am a stalker! :) Keep up the awesome blogging

Andrea said...

Hello lady!
I'm pretty sure you know me :)
I came across your blog because you commented on mine..oh..say 2 or 3 months ago.

I keep coming back because I feel as though we'd be BFF's in real life..LOL! Same beliefs, same sense of humor..you get the point.

Dunc said...

Hi, I'm Sarah (which you already know). I like long walks on the beach, holding hands under the moonlight......

I found your blog when I was on the D&R board on the nest, and have just loved it so much that I consistently read it! I love to hear what you're up to, about your relationship with Tony, and all of the other random and not-so-random things that you post about. One of these days I'm going to ask you for some running tips, too :-)

Julia said...

Hello there!

I found you after you commented on my little blog [and apparently I sent a few gals your way, too! Who knew?]

I like reading your blog because I can relate to you: running, newlywed, martha-isms, etc. Why do you read the blogs you read? Cause they are fun and you can relate, right?

Now go have fun in my fabulous state!

Sarah said...

You caught me...yes, I too, am a lurker. I don't really remember how I found you, but I think it was through the Nest (I could be wrong though).

I think your blog is great for the simple fact, it's real. It shows everyday life for a 20something = relatable (is that even a word?).

Even if your think no one is reading, just know that we are!

Heather said...

I am a lurker. I lurk on MSP nest too and post 1 or 2 times.
I love your blog because you have honest emotion, are from MN too and I can relate because I feel are lives are similar.
Keep writing, I love reading on boring days at work. I too recently starte my own blog because I loved reading so much. www.matt-peters.com/hedo

kari said...

Hey Leah!

Well you know that I'm always reading your blog. I like it because I think we are alike in a lot of ways. I can relate to you and so I like to read what's going on with you!

Have a great weekend :)

kpapa said...

I'm not a lurker, but I will explain myself anyway. Why do I read? Because it is fun and I think we'd be friends in real life. Where did I find you? Probably the nest, either that or from a comment you left on my blog... who knows!

Heidi said...

(raises hand) Hi, I'm Heidi. I'm pretty sure I stumbled across your blog via one of your Nest posts. Anyway, you play soccer and well that makes you ridiculously cool in my book. Plus, I love reading your posts because they remind me that my husband and I aren't weird, we aren't alone and plenty of other couples go through the same things we do. Yes, safety in numbers!

EK said...

I found your blog the the nest. I was on the MN board the same time you were on the knot and "ran in to you" again on the decorating and renovating board on the nest and saw the link to your blog.

I read beacause you provide interesting insight in to your own life that I am sure most of us can relate to on some level!

Jeannie said...

I'm a lurker as well!! I found your blog from the nest. I like reading your blog because I find it interesting and your a very honest person. You and your husband deal with some of the same issues that my husband and I deal with, so it's nice to not feel alone on things and just to get a different perpective.

Nice to meet you :-)

Sea Squared said...

Hey lady! You know how I "met" you. I read because I'm certain that one of these days we will actually meet IRL! And besides, I love stalking you. :P

Randi said...

Hey Leah!

I am a lurker!! haha. I found your blog through Bill, Miss and Broad. As to I know the glines and found hers.

your blog and life and thoughts are sooo interesting! I really enjoy reading it and how honest and respectable you are!

it's weird how life turns about, as to we were 12 when we first met!

you also inspired me to start my own.!

take care!!

Kristal said...

Hi Leah. ;) I found you through the Nest (at least, I think...) and I read because your faith is encouraging.

Lindsey said...

I found your blog on "My Life in Transition" and have enjoyed reading your blog as I am also a 20-something wife and find myself relating to your stories. Check out my blog if you get a chance:
learningtobeawife.blogspot.com, thanks!=)

Hanna said...

Hi there....I am delurking myself. My name is Hanna and I found your blog through Julia's blog. I like your blogs. They're really sweet and feel like you'd be a great person to know.

Katherine K said...

Hey Leah,
You actually found me on my blog so I started reading yours. :) Plus, you're a Minnesota girl and I am at heart too, even though now I live in Colorado. I love all the pictures you post and your honesty in your posts.

abby said...

Holler! I found your blog through the nest. I've kept reading because I was stunned to find out how much we could relate in our circumstances. And I love that you write about the "real" in life, good or bad. It can get exhausting (and annoying) to continuously read about how everyone else's marriage and/or life is always puppies and rainbows. Real marriages (and lives) have issues and I appreciate your candidness :)

chels43ie said...

I confess. I lurk. I fond your blog through the nest and have continued to read because I relate to a lot of what you write. Being young and married can be difficult at times and its reassuring to read that you guys go through the same issues that we do.

So please keep writing!

Jenn said...

What up?!?!?!

I'm pretty sure I found you through a comment you made on my blog - but I was destined to find you one way or another...you know like all true loves :)

I love reading because your faith encourages me, I love that you're real, and I read mostly because you're the kind of chick I could be friends with IRL!

Freckles Chick said...

Hi L! I wandered onto your lovely blog after you left a super sweet comment on mine. I also remembered you from my "Nestie" days! Like Joi said, I just adore how honest, refreshing, and candid your blog is =)

Erin said...

Hey Leah,
I think I found you through Mayday Girl- it's been awhile. I got hooked because I found it fascinating that Target HQ sounded so much like being in the stores- drama all around. Now I just stay because I think it's a fun blog.

AmberDenae said...

GOOD LORD- You have a lot of lurkers!!! haha

Dang, I wonder how many I have now ??

Bekah said...

Um wow 34 comments! I dont remember how I found your blog....I think google reader recommended it to be based on my other blog subscriptions.

Ummm....why do I read? I dont know...i like it. Ilike they way your write about tony, it makes me feel giggly about my husband. Does that make sense?

You write like a real person, which is good.

Erin said...

I found you through the Nest - and I keep reading because..... I want to! :)

AJ said...

My answer, which is so boring and predictable:
I'm AJ. I met you on the knot ages ago when we were planning our weddings. Then I met you IRL at that GTG in MG. And now I read your blog because emails just don't bring enough Leah into my day.

Be jealous, other marital-bless blog readers. Yes, I have met the likes of this fabulous lady. She really is just the way she writes. When I read her stories, I can hear her voice and her intonations. It's totally Leah, and it's totally fabulous.

Mrs. McB said...

I am on The Nest and started reading your blog b/c it was interesting and I loved to read it. :) I also have a blog I recently started.

Dr. Erin and Mr. Heath said...

dayum. 39 comments? You're so beating me :) But, I have 100 subscribers to your 96...so, Ha!
Love ya!

Rebecca said...

Hi,
I found your blog through a comment you made on Ashley's blog. And I read your blog because it's real and genuine and interesting. And, I have a confession to make, I like reading about married people because I would really like to marry my boyfriend. I know that sounds kinda weird :)

Aimee Jo said...

That would be me. A lurker...found you through the nest, maybe on the D&R board.

I keep reading because I love the honesty and reality of your writing. And I had to keep coming back to find out what happened to the fence neighbors!

Aimee said...

I'm Aimee. I don't remember how I found your blog. I'm addicted to blogs - I have a TON on my GR. I guess I like reading about people's lives! :-)

Aliya said...

Hey Leah, I'm aliya. I live in Mississippi and found your blog from Ashley Lancasters. I read because I absolutely love your humor. Have a great weekend.

L Sqaured said...

Hi Leah! I'm also a lurker on your blog! I stumbled across it when searching for other married couples my age! I Love your blog, and all of the pictures..and living in CA my hubs and I think you guys have a backyard to die for!!

Keep it Up!

Kathy said...

Hey Leah, I found you through my friend Leslie G. I like your blog because it seems so real. Leslie is the only one of our group of girl friends that is married so far so by reading her nestie friends' blogs I feel like I get to know her better.

Crystal said...

i know i'm a little ate in the game, but I'm just catching up on my blog reading! I found you on the nest on D&R. Your blog just makes me want to keep coming back, so I do! Now you are on my reader.

Bluebird said...

Hi Leah!

I am MarriedAMarine from the nest- which is how I found your blog.

I've been lurking for a few weeks now and always enjoy reading what you have to say. I think what I love most about your blog is that I can relate to you and your relationship with your husband because DH and I seem to be very similar to you guys.

Kelsey said...

Let's see... I'm pretty sure I found your blog through your Nest siggy. I read it because I like it, and because it's nice to have a MN nestie to chat with!

Sarah said...

I am a lurker, and I found you on the Nest. I enjoy your writing style and you always have something interesting to say. Plus, your photographs are gorgeous. Keep it up!

All Things Today said...

Hey Leah! I'm a lurker...sometimes commenter:) I found you through the nest, but I think I've been "following" your story since your days on the knot. Love the honesty of your blog and your writing style...you're inspirational:)

Desiree

Lisa said...

Hi Leah!

It's angel1015 from The Nest D&R and the MSP board. Our lives have a lot of similarities so I love reading how you and Tony handle situations. Thanks so much for sharing with us!

Katherine said...

Sorry I'm so late with this one! My excuse is that I was out of town for the weekend! I found your blog through In Her Shoes. I keep reading because I relate with a lot of the things you talk about and I love the honesty you bring to everything!

G+D said...

Hey girl! I'm a little late to the party as I've been MIA lately as well. But catching up on my google reader and couldn't resist replying to this one! I come here b/c I think you're just the sweetest, cutest thing!! Thanks for keeping me entertained! =)

this is we said...

Well I found your blog through the nest :o) You just seem like a genuine, sweet person. And goofy too! Gotta love the goofiness!

Jennifer said...
