a few matters of blog business

dear readers,
as you can see i have finally updated my blog. you will notice many new pictures for your viewing pleasure. now i have a request for you.
who the heck are you??!!
i am not one to beg for comments, so don't think that i am about to do that - but it has come to my attention lately (thanks to google analytics) that people read my blog in states where i don't know a soul. also, sometimes people mention having seen something on my blog and i had no idea that they knew i had a blog! so... if you don't mind, could we do a little roll call?? just so i know who my audience is here...
i know my mom, clint's parents, and my sister are frequenters - and holly and tracie and JESSY(they always comment, so i know they are here!) but other than that, i have no idea!
so, i have made it so that anyone can comment - and you don't have to tell me how cute my child is or how amazing i am (although you may not be able to help yourself :) - just a quick "hi my name is..."
if i don't know you, no worries - don't be shy. i too am a blog stalker (see my updated list on the left). just a little howdy would be grand.
thank you. now get back to looking at adorable pictures of my beautiful baby boy.
sincerely,
jess

Jess, I am shocked and appalled that you don't know that I check your blog DAILY so I, too, can get my Owey fix. And, I would like to think that I am a frequent commenter, yet I got no credit. That is sad, sad, sad. I guess I just didn't make the all important cut. With that said, I am here, announcing my presence and letting you know that I am a checker of your cute, cute blog! PS I live in NY.

jess said...

oh yes jessy. you are good. i know you are there, and thanks for reminding me. i will be sure to edit:)

Lauren said...

Hey jess, you better do some more editing. It has been a few weeks since I've left a comment, but I too can't get enough of your little guy and I check your blog daily! Looks like you are having lots of fun with your new camera. Do you use it on auto mode or are you already THAT good at manual mode? Send me some pointers would ya! Anyways, lots of love from OHIO!

Hello my name is Becca B. and I read your blog. I hate when people don't at least occasionally leave a comment. I call people that don't, BLOG LEECHES. I have a bunch on my blog too. Some have come clean lately but there are still a lot out there. Good luck finding yours.

Amber said...

Ahhh, lurkers. I have many of them. In fact, most of the people who comment on my blog are not people I know. My family and friends are the ones who don't admit they read it. :-)

lelly said...

ha ha! i came to YOUR blog because i noticed you on my own bravenet statistics. hmmm.

so, i guess, TAG!! you're it.
:)

Tracie said...

I am glad to see that I made the list! I am always here.

amy said...

Jess, we're back in town! I am a definite frequenter of your blog...even though I get to see you guys most days of the week. :) I guess I don't leave as many comments as I should b/c I just tell them to you in person. I'll work on that. ;) Love the blog, love Owey...fingers crossed for the arranged marriage! :)

Annie said...

Hi Jess, I'm so thrilled to have a stalker. Thanks for commenting today :)

Here's a funny thing: I clicked on YOUR blog earlier this morning through clicking through a chain of various blogrolls. How perfect to have you pop up again today!

BTW, I'm headed to San Diego with my husband and some friends in a couple of weeks. Any suggestions?

April said...

I'm not a lurker...just found your blog this morning after you commented on mine...you're welcome to visit and or comment as you wish, of course. Congrats on the photography contest...how fun for you!

Jess,
I know that I haven't seen you in like forever, (at least since the Provo days) But I too,am a blog stalker. And I will just let you know so that when you see Washington show up on your blog thing, its probably me. :) I do check up on Owen every now and then. I am working on commenting more on peoples blogs that I don't know that well. So I don't feel so wierd. (Like a stalker) :) We'll see how that goes! Anwyay, you have a cute little guy, and feel free to check up on Tucker (the star of MY show)when you have a chance. :)

Keri said...

Jess, I too am a constant blog watcher! Keep the pictures coming.... I love it!

brooke said...

I am a TOTAL blog stalker, I look often but comment rarely! But you know I love you!

Everyone Has a Story... said...

I don't remember how I found your blog or why, but I do know I do check in once in a while.
Once I figure out the connection, I will let you know!
Oh, and your baby is adorable!

Hi, My name is Tuesdee from AZ. I found your blog through a couple searches, one Blue Lily photography. I know her sister we were in the same church in Chino Hills CA, and two I found it through my cousin Amanda and Jake Steele. i love photography, and I love the pictures you have taken of your darling boy!! I am always looking for interesting poses, and ideas. Check out my blog anytime! :)

Holly said...

You know I'm always here checkin out your cute little man. Do Suedy and Keri have blogs? I miss those girls! Keep the pictures comin!

Megan said...

I feel retarded Jess because I can't figure out for the life of me how you know who was on your blog. I need you to tell me! I always wished there was someway I could know that someone had visited even if they didn't comment. It sounds like I can't know who visited but I can know where they are living. Either way I need you to dish on your trade secrets!
