I know why you don't comment

I couldn't figure it out. So I signed out of blogger, went back to my blog as a visitor, and clicked on "comment". So you have to sign in. And in order to sign in, you have to use your google or your blogger sign-in. Oh, dear. And there's no link to click to create a user i.d. if you don't already have one. There are knots in your stomach. The room starts spinning. Wasn't it enough that you typed in the address from scratch again because you don't know how to manage your bookmarks?

Here's what you do. If you have a google account, use that i.d. If you have a gmail account, use whatever comes before "" as your username, and your gmail password as your password.

Okay, if you don't have a google account, create one. Go to and click "sign in". Then click "create an account now". Take a deep breath, it's gonna be okay. All you have to do is enter your current email address and then make up a password. Oh, and then you have to enter the crazy word verification letters as they are shown on the screen. Don't hyperventilate. It's just so that someone can't program their computer to create multiple accounts without a live person doing the work. Another post on just that coming soon.

So, you've created your google account, congratulations! You may put the paper bag away, you can be done hyperventilating. Now you can comment all day long on my blog. I know you're there. I have "statcounter". I can see that you are visiting ... I just don't know who you are!

Is it lame to beg for comments? Because I'm not proud. I'm shameless, in fact. Show me some love!!!

Okay....I confess I still check in on you every now and then. Now that I have 3 I'm sure can understand that sometimes these are the only adult conversations that are uninterrupted....HA!

I'm so glad to see you here! If you are ever my way, please let me know and we will meet you at Chick-fil-A! :) You have officially de-lurked. Do you have a blog so I can check in on you guys?

I check in every so often. Normally I just check real quick to see what you all are up to, I don't really get a chance to comment because one of my children interrupts. I hate that we don't keep in touch more often. It is difficult to keep up with everyone in the Lodmell family. It also nice to know other mothers' stories of the crazy things that go on with kids at home.

I am just learning about "lurking" protocol, sorry to have transgressed. You are so funny! I have to tell you that I nearly lost it on the target story. Take care!

Hi Crissy:

I check maybe every other day to see if there is anything new. I laughed so hard about the Target thing. You have a great sense of humor and great writing skills.

Sorry for being a lurker, but I am not very good at writing. I wasn't blessed with wit or humor.

I do enjoy reading your blog. I love the inspiration you give the rest of us through your family experiences.

Keep blogging and I will at least tell you hello and how much you made my day.
