I feel like I am being followed…

12 10 2009
I just noticed that my followers are up to 64. Holy crap! So much pressure. I was thinking about it and wondering, who are all you people following me? I feel honored… but then I thought about those few blogs that I follow (or stalk, really, I don’t publicly follow) that I only read because they are complete trainwrecks. I never comment on those, I just read and then move on simply because they provide me with entertainment value. I wonder if I am some of your trainwreck blog?

At work the other day, I asked my friend how his weekend was. He responded (completely serious) that “it was a very interesting weekend. Our refrigderator went out and then miraculously three hours later is starting working again.” I had to try not to snicker. Interesting? Really?

So, maybe I am a bit of trainwreck. If I think back to the past year, my life has been pretty interesting. From getting certified, my SIL getting pregnant with twins and being crazy, bringing my puppy home, my sister getting pregnant with twins and ME being crazy, to going to therapy, to my dreams coming true in a matter of hours. I guess at very least, things have interesting.

So, what I was GOING to say, is “HELLO” to all of my new followers. Introduce yourselves and I will follow you back!!

I like your blog because it gives me hope….Our baby is out there. Sometimes it seems like I will never find them, but at the right time, it will happen.

This is probably one of very few instances when it's actually pretty cool to be followed! 🙂 This post cracked me up, thanks for the good laugh. I would say interesting, YES…but trainwreck, NO!! Now I'm curious to know what your trainwreck blogs are!! Melba

You're not a trainwreck. You have a very interesting blog. You know you can click on all those followers and find out where they lead you. Sometimes it can be scary but you never know what trainwreck might be waiting for you. :-)Oh and I hope I'm not one of those trainwrecks!!!

Oh, doll, you crack me up!I hope I'm not one of your train wreck blogs. 🙂 Well, I'm totally an old been-around-here-awhile reader but I thought I'd pop on here to say "hi". As you know I'm an adoptive mom to a busy toddler living in good ole Nebraska! Have a good day!!!

I am a momma to a newly turned 1 year old. I follow, but do not have a blog of my own. You will be pleased to know, I do not follow beacuse you are a trainwreck. 🙂 I follow because I enjoy your writing. I started long before you received the call and I rejoiced with you that day!

I think I have posted before, but I am a PCOS victim, failed fertility treatments, now adoptive Mama to two beautiful children. Our Princess just turned 3 and our Boo will be 3 in December…they are blessings! I have enjoyed reading your blog for well over a year, and it has been great to celebrate with you and your sweet one! I subscribed to your blog the very day I first found it because I know that pain you WERE going through, it was the pain I felt before Sept27th06.

Ummm….I'm afraid I might be a trainwreck that you stalk!Rachel, from Indiana. I'm not a "follower," per se, but I do have you on my "Adoption Blogs I Read" list on my blog. I'm not sure how to do the follower thing.I have 15 followers, though, and I understand the pressure to write 🙂

I've been following you for a bit now and enjoy your blog. I am Kelly from Texas and have a 6 year old son and a 13 month old that we adopted domestically. I do have a blog, but don't update it as often as I would like. Being a working mom with a very active toddler is exhausting.

I choose you for a reward. Check out my blog.
