Is it creepy?

It was pointed out to me this morning that "calling out the lurkers" was creepy, this is something I had been considering doing for some time, not wanting to scare anyone off I have held off doing it, but I wanted to say "hi" to the regulars, especially to those who visit on a daily basis. So, what do you think? Your thoughts and feelings are important to me, answer the poll and let me know what you think. The poll is on the upper right of the blog.

I truly do have the best readers! Thanks for everyone's responses, the poll ended up having 36 responses, 33 approve, 3 disapprove, so all in all, the majority of you think it was OK to say hi to my readers (and lurkers). I'll remove the poll. I was going to remove this message, but I have gotten such great comments, I decided to leave it in place. Thanks again everyone! :)

  1. I think I have only commented once or twice but I read all your posts!!! I usually have 3 or 4 kids crawling on me and driving me nuts while I am trying to think of something to say lol. Love reading your blog and great job!!!! Michelle frugalredneck.blogspot.com

  2. I don't think it's creepy at all...great idea and I hope a lot more folks will post here. :)

  3. I'm a lurker and it doesn't seem creepy to me. I try to read your blog as ofter as I can. So what you are doing is fine with me.

  4. Wretha, I check in everyday and appreciate you sharing your life and adventures with us. Keep up the great work! -K-

  5. I say do what you want! I personally like what you do...and say to hell with anyone that doesn't...just my 2 cents!

    You go, girl!

  6. Hey - I am "Reynolds" and I do check in most everyday to see what updates you may have posted - I love your blog!

  7. No Creepiness at all. I guess i'm a lurker. My family and I are trying to do much rthe same thing (albeit in the high desert of California). I look to your site often for strength and motivation when it seems the planning stages are never going to ennnnnnnd!!!!

  8. Its different. How do you like it.
    Read here as often as I can. Don't always have a computer tho, so sometimes away for several days.

  9. Thanks Tango, Jude, anon-K,
    HJ, that's probably the same advice I would give too, thanks friend!
    TAMMY!!!, so you are Reynolds, well my smile will be even bigger each time I see your name. Thanks!
    Betty, thanks, and don't give up, keep going toward your goals, let nothing stop you and you will get there. :)
    AnnaMouse, thanks for stopping by.

    Thanks to everyone, I feel a lot better, about this whole thing. :)

  10. Guess I'm a lurker, too. Found you thru Hermit Jim. I enjoy your blog, don't get to come to it every day, but come as often as I can. I think it's great to say 'hi' to everyone. It actually makes me feel good when someone acknowledges that I wrote on their blog. I don't have a blog as yet, tho am working on it.
    So, 'hi' to you from the south plains of Texas.

  11. Hey girl! I check in and catch up-as-catch-can, always love reading your posts when I stop in here! Congrats on your new pressure cooker!

  12. CottonLady, glad you are here, I enjoy reading JH's site too. Don't worry about coming every day, I rarely write everyday, more like a couple of times a week at the most, I only write when there is something of interest to post.

    Robbyn, thanks! The pressure cooker isn't new, although it had only been used once before, it's in pretty new shape, it's probably over 20 years old! Works like a charm... PB bought it years ago to use as an autoclave, he says he thinks he remembers using it once to sterilize a pair of tweezers.
