Did you know it has been nearly four years since I launched Home Ec 101 with Ivy? Crazy, I know. Tuesday night I was quite surprised to find that I had been included in the 40 Bloggers to Watch in 2011 list over on the ProBlogger site. The post itself was written by Jade Craven and it’s a very meta kind of achievment -meta simply means that it’s probably only important to those of us who pay attention to what happens in the blogging world- but it was still a huge ego stroke, nonetheless. I had to share it with you.
Today is one of those odd little fake holiday days. Chris Cactus of Rude Cactus came up with Delurking Day. What does that mean? Well, a lurker is a reader of a site who never or only rarely comments. You see, comments actually mean a lot to bloggers. It’s a sort of validation, it shows that the daily effort is noticed. So just for today, step forward and say hi. If you want, tell us a little about yourself. Yes, I’m looking at you. It’s time to come out of hiding and say hello. Don’t worry, it’s not a long-term committed relationship, you can go right back into the shadows. It was nice to see you, however briefly.
All of you regulars who do leave feedback? Thank you, you really do make getting up and making the effort worth it.
What have you been up to lately? Have you made any progress on your goals for 2011?
I don’t do memes often, but I thought this one might be fun. . . hat tip to Sarah who let me know about the event.
