De-Lurk

So, Friday was the official de-lurk day of the blogging world. I am a little late in posting but I hope you lurkers out there will still post a comment! I know I lurk on many blogs so I would like to see how many people actually take a peek at our little lives. To help you along, here is a question. Do you think it would be weird if I put a girlie background on our blog? Since the blog is mostly about our kids, I feel it should match them. However, I am the one who writes it so...opinions please!

Here is a little picture to help you decide. It is Kale and his friend Smith with their "babies".

I am not a lurker but I will give my opinion anyway. As long as I have known you (quite some time) I have never thought you liked "girly" things. So even if you changed the background to something more "girly", I can't imagine it would be anything but wonderful. In fact, I would be interested in seeing what you consider girly.

I am a lurker for sure! I came to your blog via Addie's, and hers via Aubyn Nutting. I do not have my own blog, but enjoy reading everyone's...they are all like daily autobiographies. I think you should put up whatever background you enjoy looking at :)

I'm with Betsy (who is DEAR - I got to meet her face-to-face over Christmas, and she plays a mean fiddle). Girl it up, because it is YOUR blog, not theirs. Just not too girly, because blech.

Johanna said...

i LOVE reading your blog! ...and I think you should change it up to match your mood. Go big, Naomi!

I love you

Helene said...

Hey, Naomi!! Reading your blog is a delight for me. Being so far away, it keeps me in the loop - at least a little bit. Do whatever you want with the background. Love you!! Hug those boys for us!!

Lurker here....have been following you since before Kale was born, or just around that time -- as he is just about the same age as my grandson.

We share the large, extended families...but you guys travel a lot more than I do...;)

So...is the owl background the "girly" one?

Let them boys be boys. The background dont make a lot of diff. Could be owls, tired feet or toys. Or what you like since you make it.. change up now and then but let them boys be rough and tumble. Lowly mayor opine Do have fun with it.

I'm another lurker, friends with all the Meyers girls which is how I found your blog. Addie can vouch for me that I'm normal, well, ok, mostly normal. :) I think it's your blog and you spend all the time writing it you should be able to have whatever background you like.

I'm a lurker! I love little surprises like finding my nephews in your photos and posts. Deeeeelightful. :)

So funny! I saw that my friend Betsy Rivers commented on here! She is a friend of mine and used to be in the same small group as me :) haha! I am definitely a lurker (creeper)! I love checking out other people's creativity and especially like looking at other blogs that belong to stay at home moms! As far as the background...I agree with everyone else, you go for whatever YOU like! :)

Nomes, I vote for mixing it up, as each entry has it's own flavor and zing, so perhaps might the wallpaper. Live boldly, be yourself ever unfolding!
love, oma

Naomi,
Love your post on de-lurking. I might have to steal your idea sometime. It is always fun to know who is reading your blog. Oh, and my vote is to go with whatever color/background you like.

J and Raq said...

I always "lurk" on Addie's. Anyway, I enjoy looking at your blog and seeing all your travels and how brave you are! Your boys are so cute-we really need to get together so the wee ones can play and we can catch up! You always have great backgrounds -your taste will always be great!

No lurker here. But I often lurk on people's I don't know personally. Most of the blogs I read are from people I know, it's what I have time for.
Did Smith blindfold his baby?

Mike said...

Is a girly background like a girly magazine? Because yes... that would be weird.

from Liam and Elena's Grandma Bear ~ who is a lurker on yours and several others through "Bred from MOOO! definitely cute kids, but if you're the blogger guru of the site, create whatever YOU want to look at, or mix it up as the mood moves you, like Oma Becky said. goodness knows, having a bit of such fun when parenting can only be de-stressing!

Naomi- I have the same issue with my background. Glad to see everyone else's thoughts on the matter. I went for hearts this time... and I hate hearts.

aubyn nutting said...

Ill call myself a Lurk-er because its better than a creeper. he he he

I have only ever objected to one blog background on any blog, because it looked like a Magic Eye optical illusion and was soooooo difficult to read over.

Lindsey K said...

I am not a lurker, in fact I love leaving comments on your blog because they mostly involve telling you how much I love you and your family, and I feel like I can never tell my friends that enough :)
And I vote girly background but not like lipstick and high fashion brand names.

I'm a lurker, I love reading your blog!
