Would It Kill Ya To Say Something?

See the pretty button I have over there? That's because today is delurk day. Leave me a comment. I get just over 100 separate hits a day on this site and if I'm lucky, I get 10 comments. So come out of the woodwork and leave a comment. I don't bite (often). And sometimes I give away free stuff!

Besides, all the cool kids are doing it.....


The Scribe template I liked so much doesn't seem to be modifiable. I'm not highly enamoured of this one, but until I can scrape up some cash to get a new template, this one will have to do. All my bling in sitting in a Word document. I'm going to see if I can put some of it here, especially the diabetes stuff, but for now, the dots will have to do.

Thanks for joining in!

daysgoby said...

Yay! I can load you now!

Lili said...

I like...stuff.

sandy shoes said...

100 hits a day! Cool.

I liked the custom look of before, but it was getting hard to load, so I like the speed of the new one, and the dots are nifty.

sandy shoes said...

Ah. Just read comments on the post below... I guess I wasn't the only one with the loading issue. FWIW, my problem was the same as others described: template came up quick, then a lot of grinding away till the content appeared.

I've stopped reading a few blogs for that same reason, but kept at it with yours 'cause I dig it :).

Hi! Since we're in the same bookclub now and all, I thought maybe I'd say hi! I am articulate, no? Aren't you glad you're in the same bookclub with me? I like, uh, books. Because of, uh, the reading. And stuff.

Angewl said...

100 hits a day? wow! That is great. I am lucky to get 1 a day. lol

pinks & Blues Girls said...

This is great... I am going to do it over at our blog, too!

Jane, Pinks & Blues

Sweet - definitely loading faster. And happy delurking day!

bec said...

For the record, and it won't help you now, but I had no problem loading your site at all. Have you looked at Miss Zoot? That's where my lovely old Ladies Lounge template came from for FREE!

Fairly Odd Mother said...

Good morning! I'm not lurking!

I loved your old template but it used to crash my laptop (which is currently getting serviced--ahem---so that this doesn't happen all the time).

100 hits a day?!? I hope to be you when I grow up.

Beck said...

Something!
What? My kids think that's HILARIOUS!

SUEB0B said...

No, why?

Kendra said...

Definitely loading a LOT faster now...used to be quite laggy. Hello, polka-dots :B

Cat, Galloping said...

i'm not a lurker but it won't kill me to say something either!

LauraJ said...

oooh now that was a quick load up. Sorta like it was too quick for me! I liked it when it was slow...well maybe not too slow but I sorta miss the impatience I had waiting for your page to load. Now I'm rambling! Have a great day!!

BookMomma said...

Very guilty lurker... love the blog!

bubandpie said...

I think "scribe" is the template I was using before - I've seen a lot of modified versions of it around (Novembrance is one; Denguy used to have one but I think he's switched). I don't know how they did it though, so I'm not much help. (At least I delurked - that's something!)

Kate said...

Hey ya'll! I've been lurking from way down in South Carolina! Luv ya!

Miguelina. said...

I'm not a lurker...but I wanted to say hello today. I'll miss your little monkey.

Let me know if you want a banner. I can hook you up.

Amylia said...

Yay! I like that I can download it.
I had this template before on my blog and liked it, but changed to my new format--still just a Blogger template.

I'll be reading more regularly now...I used to have to "save up" and read a bunch of posts at once b/c my computer couldn't handle "the scribe." You were just too damn powerful!

Polka dots--much more lady-like (hah! J/K!)

Mamma Sarah said...

I have to say that I was shocked to see the Monkey gone, but look forward to the new and improved. :-D

Shannon said...

Hello.

Paula said...

Happy Delurking Day!

Jamie said...

Hey there :) I'm here too - and yah, it was taking me forever to load your pages on the old template for some reason ??? Now it's nice and fast. Although now you're missing your custom look :(

Hope you find something that is more "julia" soon :)

Marie said...

I used to have the Scribe template also. I loved it, but the background started to look more and more like funeral home wallpaper to me.

ali said...

i'm here! i'm here!
not a total delurking for me, since i DO comment sometimes...

anonlurkermom said...

happy delurking day. i am sorry for o and her disappointment. my son and daughter each had birthday parties where only one kid showed. they still talk about it.

Karly said...

Happy De-lurking Day!

jennie said...

the new look is just fine, and the loading speed is much improved. Bravo!

Josi said...

I thought I was reading daysgoby for a second. I'm always here but don't always post because you have such witty and amazing other readers, my comments seem to be blah. So I just sit trying to think of something that will set me apart. Never happens. So, here I am, de-lurking.

Chrissie in Belgium said...

It is me Julia!

Andrea said...

Not that I'm a lurker, but hello!

Yay, I can load you now!

Bernard said...

I know I've commented in the past, but in honor of the day - hello.

Josie said...

Hope you're feeling better!!

The Hotfessional said...

Yep. I'm here. Commenting and stuff. Only you know I'm probably one of your 10 commenters right?

Snirk.

Yea, the dots? Not exactly my cup of tea, but it does load faster.

Allison said...

I'm also in the process of figuring out a new template because apparently Wordpress doesn't like me anymore than Blogger did. Oh well.

Whirlwind said...

*waves Hi. Did you change the layout as well?

Lara said...

i'm at about a hundred hits a day, too, and nowhere near as many comments. i don't comment enough, but know that i love you and i'm always reading! :)

Paige said...

I'm definitely not a lurker, but I'll say hello anyway.

hello.

Kerri. said...

I'm not so much a lurker (I'm more of a regular reader!), but saying hello anyway. :)

in search of balance said...

i'm always around. hooray for julia! :)

gina said...

de-lurking

Mrs. Chicky said...

Somethings different about you. I can't quite put my finger on it...

Did you get a haircut?

WI Mommy said...

I'm not lurking - it's just 5:30 in the morning and my Vicodin wore off (they need to make some time release Vicodin! any medical people out there? good business idea here!)

Sarah, Goon Squad Sarah said...

Sorry I'm late.

mamatulip said...

I love polka dots. :)

Anonymous said...

Julie! I admit...I'm a lurker...because I can't seem to find my freakin' list of usernames and passwords...including those for Blogger. So- I feel like we are keeping in touch, when in reality, I'm just lurking in your life/blog. (which I adore by-the-way) Let's get together soon. I'm in need of sushi...and perhaps a nice day of girl-time will help clear that Mom-stress/PMS. Love- Kat

Sara said...

Not a lurker - just wanted to say hi and remind you to pick my name for your contest (turn down the corner on the entry or something if you have to)!
