Reader Roll Call!

I'd like to attempt, once again, to get a run-down of those who may regularly read my blog. Of course I'm familiar with those who comment often, but I'd like to know how many are here otherwise. Who's out there lurking? Braya? Robyn H? Mommy? Curious mind wants to know.

So leave me a note. It can be as simple as a "Yo." And you can even categorize yourself as anonymous, though I'd appreciate some hint as to your identity (like "I once called your daughter a pickle. In writing." Oh yes, you know who you are). Or, if you're a new reader, or one who's never commented before, do tell me your name and how you found me. Curious mind wants to know. Oh. Did I already say that?

*waves* Somehow it's therapeutic to read blogs from other writers. It's nice to know we're not the only ones going through the joys and woes of writing.

You need to get that sitemeter thingy. Then you can stalk your readers, like I do.

I'm kidding. But I can figure out who some people are who visit, if I feel like it, which usually I don't. My husband always seems surprised when I know he visited my blog from work. Hello...it posts your company's server name!

Cousin Josh Here! Yo

Melody said...

I'm out here reading your posts. : )

Janna Qualman said...

Yay, familiar faces! :D

Janna Qualman said...

Melody! When I try to use your link, it sends me to an error page. Help!

I read your blog often, because I'm subscribed to your RSS feed. Hmm... I can't remember how I found it, though. You may have commented on one of my blog posts and I clicked your link (I do this with everyone who comments to see if I'd enjoy their blog too), I might have been discovered it through someone else's blog or a social bookmarking website, or I stumbled upon it in my search for writers' blogs. Either way, I did find you, and I enjoy reading your posts.

Have fun getting to know the rest of your readers. :)

I always read others blogs before I comment to get a sense of their inner self.

If you get sitemeter, it's free and easy to put on your blog. Then you can see who referred the visitor or what they searched on the search engines.

Joanne said...

Hey Janna, Just me, having a coffee, checking in!

Anonymous said...

It is your good friend from high school. Checking in when I need a break from work. I drive Haley's Comet. Can you figure you who I am????

aaroncrocco said...

I think you know me but I'll say hello anyway! ;-)

Janna Qualman said...

Misti, thanks for letting me know you're subscribed. How exciting!

Barbara, I do believe I've seen you once before. Glad to have you back! Now you and Wendy have both suggested the sitemeter. I have it for counting blog views... so likely this information is already captured? I've never looked at my read-outs. It feels so... Big Brother-ish.

Joanne - I'm about to go get my morning's coffee. :)

"Anonymous." I've got you figured out. Glad you're here, George. ;)

Janna Qualman said...

Aaron, it's good to see you, as always.

Melanie Avila said...

Yo.

I might steal this idea. I have a stat thing but I'm too lazy to try and figure out who reads. Usually it's an offhand comment from my mom that my aunt mentioned something about reading, blah blah.

Yes, I think I'll steal this. ;)

Melanie Avila said...

Ok, I've copied you. :D

Janna Qualman said...

I checked my stat counter, and it doesn't tell me who visits anyway, just how many and whether they're "repeat customers." :) Goin' to check yours out now!

Travis Erwin said...

I too subscribe and read every post even when I do not comment.

virtualwordsmith said...

I love reading your blog. :)

Janna Qualman said...

Thanks for the loyalty, Travis, and I appreciate your visits, too, virtualwordsmith. :)

All of you rock!

Creative A said...

Hey. Just discovered your blog recently, thought it had a neat voice, have been popping in...I don't think I've commented yet, though.

*extends hand*

Nice to meet you :)

-A

Janna Qualman said...

Nice to meet you, A! Thanks for stopping by and posting a word. :)

*runs naked through blog*

I like biscuits, burritos, love in outer space and lurking.

Who am I?

Janna Qualman said...

I have one thing to say to you... PFFT!

You're oh-so-funneh, mister. ;)

WendyCinNYC said...

Look at all these people who lurk on your blog.

Man, I'm jealous!

Jes said...

I like pears too

Anonymous said...

Hi, I'm Pam, I noticed your blog when I saw a post you made on a writing forum.

Janna Qualman said...

Jes, pears? That flew right over my head...

Pam, thanks for stopping by! Hope to see you around the boards. :)

Anonymous said...

I read it fairly regular...you know me by my lack of commas...runon sentences and utter unpretentiousness (izzat really a word??)

Janna Qualman said...

Anonymous, I know you cuz of your fun, slangy words. :D
