Roll Call: Calling All Lurkers!


Last night, I had the pleasure of having dinner with Courtney of In(side) the Loop, Carolina of Carolina Eclectic, Paige of I*heart*you and Lauren of Material Girls. I always have so much fun when I get to spend time with the Houston bloggers and was so excited to meet Paige and Lauren for the first time. They were both so sweet and funny.

We enjoyed each other's company so much, that we talked for hours. The restaurant turned the lights out and the waitstaff started to leave with their belongings in tow, signaling to us that they wanted to close up shop. We talked about lots of things... blogs, fashion, interiors, trips, remodeling historic homes, our life stories, and LURKERS. Paige called hers out a while ago and got a big response.

I know you're out there! You know who you are...you read my blog, but have never left a comment. So now, I ask of you, please leave a comment. I'd love to hear what you have to say, really, I would. I think one of the most exciting things about the blogging community is the ability to have exchanges with all sorts of cool people. Like any good blogger, I love to hear what my readers have to say and I love a little positive affirmation, but then again, who doesn't? So, I am asking you to leave a comment. It doesn't even have to be on this particular post. I'm just curious about who you are and would love to hear about your perspective. Pretty please...with a cherry on top?

I'm not a lurker, but I sure do wish I could have been at that dinner. :) Houston has so many super-cool bloggers!

Hi Paloma,

Okay, okay - a long-time lurker here... Paloma, I love your blog and when I initially found it, I read back through every single post you had written! Now I check it every morning while drinking my coffee. Keep up the great work - you cover a nice mix of topics and it's always such a pleasure to read!

Hi Paloma!

I can't remember how I found your blog, but I read it whenever there is a lull between issues of my favorite design and fashion magazines (and those lulls are long!).

I have a healthy fascination with interiors. It's sort of my way of dreaming about my future home while I pass time in my could-be-cuter apartment.

Just so you know, your blog always cheers me up and gives me something to get excited about (the posts about fashion), something to get delighted by (your good taste in interiors), and something to get inspired by (your well-chosen quotes).

Keep up the wonderfulness. I'll be reading.

Cheers,
C.A.

I enjoy reading your blog so very much. I've been a lurker for years now....but today I've decided to de-lurke! Looking forward to more great posts.

Oh I use to be a lurker as well but that's just because I was really new and did not know that much about how to leave comments or do anything really, but now I have figured a lot out! Interesting post. Have a good day! Daisy~
