A Call Out

This blog began as a way for me to document my family's life, our memories and important thoughts I wanted to share with my kiddos.  This is still it's primary purpose but it has also been a place to share photos, random thoughts of mine and an avenue for connecting with other moms and bloggers all across the world.  Thus, I have plenty of readers that I do not know personally.  This I do not mind, I especially love when my loyal readers comment, it's a way to get to know one another in this big 'ole blogosphere.  

I do however have one reader that I am calling out tonight.  This reader is from Bangalore, Karnataka and I know he/she checks my blog daily and comes directly to this site (not from a link up or random google search).  I do not, however, recall receiving any comments by this reader.  Who are you?  What is it about my little blog that you like?  I'd love to hear from you and get to know more.

As a mom and a blogger, there are plenty of concerns regarding how much information I put out "here" and the pictures I have of my children.  I would never want to endanger my children nor have their photos be used in anyway other than intended on MY blog, but I have also wanted this blog to be open, to be a place to encourage others and share with others.  I'd hate to make this blog a private blog, where only invited users could view it after providing a password, that just isn't me and to tell you the truth I'm not sure people would care enough to jump through the hoops just to see our little blog if it were to go private.  However I AM interested in WHO my readers are and what they like about my blog.  If you are a regular reader (or just passing through), would you mind leaving me a little comment telling me a bit about yourself (anything really) and what it is you enjoy from this blog?

And just because I don't care for posts without pictures - have you seen this one before?  I just came across it tonight and it made me laugh:



Thanks & Blessings,

  1. Hiee…I am Manya, a 27 yr old girl from Bangalore, India and I guess it’s me who you are talking about here!! I do check your blog at least thrice a week…I find it cute!!
    I don’t usually leave comments because I am not much of a writer…doing it today so just that you don’t get worried anymore! BTW, your kids are adorable.

  2. Thank you Manya for commenting and letting yourself be known - hope I didn't offend you at all, I just knew none of my friends and family lived in India and was wondering who this avid reader was. :) How did you first find my blog? Oh and thank you for your kind words about the kiddos!

  4. WOW!! Do you know how many times I've wondered who was reading my blog? I never imagined anyone would actually answer me if I asked. LOL So proud of you. I might have to borrow your kind but firm post to get an answer or two. How do you feel about that?

    It's nice to know you Manya!

  8. Hey Mindy,
    I love to read your blog, laugh with your Not Me Monday posts and to see all the fun photos of your sweet family. It's a tough decision to "go private" with your blog, but I would love to still follow you if you did! :o)

  12. I am me :)jen a. i think the only person you know in Denver :) I would still follow you if you went private. Our blog is private and many of my friends blogs are and i read them all the time. There has been some scary stuff that has gone on and for that reason I fully support people who set thiers to private.
