Data Collection

Hello! I was just noticing that I've picked up a rash bunch of new commenters. ("Rash" makes you sound like an outbreak of hives. No! I'm thrilled to see your faces and fruity drinks in the comment boxes.) Welcome to Mary's place! I'm curious: if you've started commenting in the past couple of weeks, where did you come from? How did you end up here? Have you been lurking for a while, or did you comment the first visit? Tell all!!!

Hi, Mary P! I haven't commented but this seems like a good time to delurk. I ended up here from Morphing into Mama, when you wrote a guest post over at her place. I've been lurking ever since you wrote that post.

I love your blog - it always makes me smile, shake my head, or laugh! (sometimes, all three at once!)

Hi there,
I got here thru a link on someone else's blog. I forget who, but she mentioned you in her post and so here I am!

I got here through Lady M. I have been blogging for awhile and would like to see some traffic on my blog so I figured the best way to get traffic is visit others and leave comments. I do love hearing your stories. Reminds me of my teaching days that I am missing since becoming a SAHM. It also makes me realize that if we ever need to do daycare that there are GOOD people out there.

I originally found you through Kittenpie and I am glad that I did. It seems we have the same taste in blogs :)

I found you through your post about spanking. I've only started reading momblogs recently since I'm more a part of another huge blogging trend: knitblogs. Thanks for reminding me again and again of what is possible in terms of discipline and patience with little ones.

I found you through a May 18th guest post on Morphing into Mama. I've been lurking ever since. I'm not sure if I've commented before. Love your stuff!

So, um, Mary, when ya gonna send me my kickback? Huh?

And the tally is:

Three long-term commenters - Peter, Mo-wo, and the (in)famous MIM. (No need to provide links to you guys, as your links are in your comments.)

Three from three different sources. Thank you, Lady M and Kittenpie!

And five - FIVE - from MIM. Kickback? Give me your address, sweetie, and I'll send you some of my husband's WONDERFUL chocolate chip cookies. He's a master.

Of course you may link to me, Momma to Ashley! All bloggers love that, of course.

(For anyone who is wondering, my blogroll is updated irregularly, but the way I decide who to add is by seeing who's been coming round regularly (mostly by checking comments; sometimes by site-meter), and adding them in!)

Wow! You had much better luck that I with the delurking/ say hi post. Maybe I'll have to wait until I'm as popular as you. And, when MIM had that controversial post awhile ago (you know the one that started everyone stopping) I was getting 10-15 hits a day, just because I was at the top of her blogroll!

I've been lurking for a long time but just recently started commenting. I can't remember where I discovered your blog though, I'm sure it was through someone else. I really enjoy your blog!

Hiya ... I have been reading for a while now ... and really can't remember how I came across you ... I think I was just stumbled across it ... but I started reading and now I can't stop!!! I am currently in England as an Au Pair ... I am only 17 and finished school in Australia last year. I have always wanted to do what you do and so listening to your stories makes me want to do it even more.

Anyway I am still going to hang around and tune in when ever I get the chance to catch up ... but thought I would take this oportunity to let you know I have been lurking for a while and will continue to do so!!

Jumping on the bandwagon late - I didn't get a chance to read this entry over the weekend.

I too found you from MIM's blog. Up until now, just a lurker, but I love your perspective on child-raising.

I have bookmarked a number of your entries in my "child-raising tips" file. DH and I are having our first child in November and need all the advice we can get. Um, let me rephrase that last sentence, we need all the GOOD advice we can get!

Umm ... I can't remember if I've commented, but I've been reading for about a month! Also a bandwagonner from MIM, and now I'm addicted. What can I say? I love your perspective for working with toddlers! I hope those cookies for MIM are good :)

I can't remember how I found you.

HEY, WHAT CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES?

Oh, I am so getting some of those first week of July.
