Audience Participation Requested

Today I unintentionally viewed our profile and I noticed that nearly 81 people have viewed it (I'm sure there have been duplicates) . Wow! I know that's not much in the blogosphere, but it seems like a lot to me!

My guess is that not all of you who read here have read the profile and that most of you are (gasp) lurkers! :*).. It's really okay. I lurked for a long time before I ever commented on a blog. At the time, I felt like I didn't express myself very well in such a limited space, so I lurked for a while longer before I commented again. There are still blogs that encourage me and I don't feel I have anything to offer, so I just lurk even now.

I feel a little more free to comment now that I have a blog--if people are interested, they can learn more about the strange person who commented on their blog and get a better picture. I also realize now how encouraging it is to blog and have folks comment.

So far, I haven't been very good at responding to comments. I am trying to remedy that. I am hoping that James' journey with leukemia will get a little less bumpy (no guarantees) and that we'll be able to focus on some other kinds of posts--like homesteading, thoughts on the Christian life, our family... I would also like to find a way to list an e-mail address without worrying about spam--we already get enough!

My request to you today is to ask you to comment. It doesn't have to be long or deep, but I would love to know who reads here and how you came to read here, if you don't know us. If you have a blog or a website of some kind, please leave us your address. I won't encourage you to leave e-mail addresses to post because of the spam issues. So, please, pretty please, with sugar on top, click on the comments link below and leave your name... and how you found out about us.

Thanks in advance. I hope to do more of these in the future, but thought this would be a good intro.

Love, Stephanie

Well, since you convicted me for "lurking" I'll say that Anna and I greatly enjoyed looking at the pictures of the family a few posts ago. They were beautiful pictures. We were saying how nice it is to see a family with so much love for one another. God bless each of you with more love and grace.

I guess I need to de-lurk as well... I just found the site, which is why this is almost a month late. But, welcome to the neighborhood, and the blogsphere for that matter. I run two, a political one ( and a more personal one ( Check them out if you have time with the wonderful internet service we have out here...
