Have We Met?
To quote Rachel Berry from Glee: "I'm like Tinkerbell, Finn. I need applause to live." Only in my case, it's blog readers. :)
I have several tracking mechanisms on my blog including Google Analytics and a live traffic feed from Feedjit so I know how many people come to blog and from where, what they look for, and how long they stay.
It's amazing to me that I have readers all over the world.
But I would love for you to come out of obscurity and become more than just a flag on the live feed map.
So, let's introduce ourselves!
My name is Lara. I have been married for 9 years to an incredible man who knows not to take me too seriously. I have a 16-month old daughter. We live in Idaho not far from where I was born and raised. I have a Bachelors Degree in psychology but my profession is a copywriter. I work in-house writing marketing copy for an international wellness company. It sounds impressive, but it really means I write "lather, rinse, repeat" on the back of shampoo bottles. Oh, sometimes I get to name makeup colors and create slogans and headlines. It's a lot of fun and offers a creative outlet. I'm the youngest of five. I am 28 years old (for another 2 months). I am an adoption advocate. I hope to have a novel published someday. I have 2 dogs and a cat. And yeah, that's me in a nutshell.
Now, introduce yourself to me! All you blog lurkers...Jackie from high school, I know you said you lurked. Rene, you said you read religiously. Someone in Mississippi is a reader. Germany, who are you? Even if you think I know you read, please leave a comment (trust me, my ego needs it!).
And then we'll be officially introduced.
Another request...what kinds of posts do you like to read? It seems I get the most hits (and comments) on adoption and infertility posts. Which is awesome because I can barely shut up about it, but I don't want to alienate people. Pop culture seems to be, well, popular too. Humorous happenings. Guest bloggers. Links to the outside world. What would you like to read?
In advance, thank you for introducing yourself to me and I've very pleased to meet you. :)
P.S. This post has been up for like 15 minutes. I've already had 3 visitors and no comments! Come out of the blog closet, guys! I already know you're there.
