Come Out Come Out Wherever You Are

I am getting a lot of blog traffic lately. I am starting to feel uneasy about the number of repetitive visits I am seeing each day from several repeat IP addresses, and am considering putting my blog on private, invitation only for a while. If you are a regular visitor to this blog, would you please make yourself known - especially if you visit more than once a day.

  1. Hey, I'm a regular and I hope to be included if you have to go "under cover" for awhile.

  2. HA!!!!
    I get traffic from repeat people too that have never left a comment.

    Then I get people googling stuff and find me it's kind of weird.

  3. Hey Julie ~
    I think there are lots of people who don't subscribe to rss feeds or don't have the Blogger Blog List that updates automatically, and who also happen to be obsessive about not wanting to miss anything. I used to check my favorite blogs six or so times a day and just click back out if there was nothing new. Anyhow, I think that's a possibility. You know me though, right??!!

  4. I read you in my Google reader and only pop over to comment usually! Sometimes that is more than once a day.

    I have this problem on the UK blog! If I went just by the comments I would assume NO ONE read that blog! But....the statcounter tells me I have 50-100 hits a week, so I keep going.

  6. I'm with TAMI. Before you turned me on to Google Reader, I would check my favorite blogs many times a day to see if anything new had been posted because I didn't want to miss anything.
    Also, I know that I have several people who read my blog regularly, and keep coming back on a regular basis, but never leave comments because they don't have blogs themselves and they don't even know how the comment thing works. Sometimes they'll mention to me when they see me that they read my blog, or they send me an e-mail.
    So personally, I would not be concerned. I would take it as a compliment that there are folks who want to keep coming back to read and reread your blog. But that's just my opinion.

  7. I agree with Great Granny! I wouldn't worry about it. I used to have you on my favorites list for the longest! I'd check it a few times a day...I think you were the one that turned me onto Google Reader too!lol I read many blogs daily that I may not comment on.

  8. I read your blog often, just have never left a comment. (until you had the great offer for your planner if we left a comment) :)Thanks again for sending it!

  9. I read you through a feed so I come over whenever you post.

    I have been getting a lot of wired traffic too.

    A lot of people from Turkey and the Middle East, they usually come from a Google hit on 'Mature TV'.

    It was a post about Sponge Bob. Imagine their dissipointment! :o)

  10. I'm here and reading! I usually just nod in agreement, so don't comment much.

  11. Depending on the level of interruptions from the kids, I sometimes do pop in a couple of times a day.

    I love your blog!

  12. Hi! I too am a regular. Sometimes I pop in often, othertimes it's every few days. I love reading your blog but I have never posted. I haven't worked up the courage to make my thoughts public :)

  13. Hey, don't leave me out!! I'm still here!

  14. Ok, here's how backwards I am; Julie,you know I am such an ignoramus about all this blog and computer stuff. Can I just admit, right here, that I still don't know what Google Reader is, or about how to subscribe to blogs that I read consistently. I just keep checking in on the ones I like to keep up with.
    Care to help a Dummy again? Maybe you'll turn me on to Google Reader too.

  15. Guilty as charged. I often think of comments to post then don't do it.

  16. I read when I see you've posted something new (I added you to my bloglist on my blog. Is that too public for you, would you prefer I take you off?) I only comment if I think I have something interesting or worthy to share. I'd like an invite if you go private : )

  17. I read...but I usually only read in bloglines, unless I want to comment. Any freaky comments lately? or just admirers?

  18. I tried blog lurking, but I couldn't keep my mouth shut.

  19. Looks like you have a lot of lurkers.

  20. i'm a new reader to your blog. i don't use bloglines much or google reader so i just hope by to see when new things are posted. sometimes thats often or i might go days before checking on a blog. depends on my time and what else is going on in life.

    i have people showing up on my blog that never comment either. maybe i should send a shout out too!

  21. Hope you weren't talking about me!!! If I don't comment, it's 'cuz I am generally too brain-dead to put sentences together!

    I recently added you to my Google reader as a photog blog - my latest interest. So, hopefully, that makes you feel better about me.

    And feel free to check out my barely-started blog to reassure yourself that I'm . . . um . . . farily normal.

  22. I'm a few days behind on this, but I come around and read, sometimes daily, sometimes just a couple times a week, but rarely comment. I'm on an unschooling list with you, and enjoy what you have to say.
