Do you?

Do you ever blog stock? As in read peoples blogs that don't really know you and then don't comment? I'll admit it, I do. I'm so embarassed by it too. There are so many blogs that I read and they have no clue that I'm there. These are ordinary everyday people (not famous bloggers or anything), just people like me! Is that creepy? I don't think it's too creepy, but I think it's funny that I feel like I know their kids and their husbands but I really don't. Ok...so most of the blogs I read are links from blogs of people I actually know. And most of the time they are people I knew growing up from church or something - I may not have ever talked to them and wouldn't ever really keep in touch, but I know who they are at least. And I'm pretty sure they know who I am...and I wouldn't be surprised if some of them have stumbled upon my blog too. But here's where it gets awkward:

Last week I was at the mall with my mom...we were minding our own business, window shopping, etc. And then I looked up and saw a girl from one of the blogs I read and I totally smiled at her...almost waved...and then looked away quickly. Holy awkward. Seriously, I don't even know if I've ever talked to her, I know who she is (because she's somehow connected to a blogger who I actually know), but it's definitely not like we hang out or are buddies. But...but I do read her blog and totally feel like I know her. I feel like I should have said "Hi, how's it going? How's so and so? Is the baby doing ok? Oh...I love what you did with your place...and that shirt you were wearing that one time is so cute...was the holiday as fun as it looked...etc.etc.etc." Now that...that would be creepy.

So do you ever do that too? Or is it just me? Are you blog stalking me right now? If so, please let me know...just so I don't feel so creepy.

Ok, I admit I am a blog stalker. My sis-in law Erica (Spackman) Bourne knows you, and so do a lot of friends, although we have never met. I was going through a tough time recently, and they recommeneded your blog as you went through something simalar. It helped a lot, and I hope you don't mind my stalking.

By the way, Hailey is gorgeous!

I was thinking the same thing the other day when I was reading your blog, and I was wondering if you would care at all... I am sure if you knew I had one, or if it was interesting, you would be stalking me too. haha

I'm a stalker too... we grew up in west stake together.

I know the feeling, seeing people you know from blogs. It's funny when you know they stalk your blog too cause they are giving you the look you are giving them..

i am laughing right out loud. so... i randomly clicked on your blog through mindy francis (we're friends from high school), because we were in the same efy group like forever ago in calgary, and i wanted to see your baby and stuff... then this post comes up! nice!! i'm a total stalker... don't feel alone! so anyways, your baby is darling, you look amazing, and hopefully you somehow remember who i am, even though i had long blonde hair back then, and now it's short and brown. ha. happy stalking!!!

oh my gosh that is sooo funny, one of my friends told me a story about being in the airport in a different city and seeing someone she knew from blog stalking. ha ha ha. If you dont do it, you aren't officially a blogger. that is why i like to add the links.
I really have so many people ask me about a certain person on my blog all the time, like my moms nail lady, or an aunt,I think it is sooo funny! cause they dont know them but they totally follow their lives.
and yes I am a stalker, I love to stalk... I had someone at church on sunday tell me she checks my blog.... who knew! I have actually tried to tone my blog down ALOT based on this fact, I am scared of who might be reading it!! I could get into so much more detail. I have thought about starting another PRIVATE blog... but probebly wont!

Jeni, Brian & Natalie Rawlins said...

ps. I just clicked on everyone on this list who commented on your blog... I am sick.
