Hi! I'm ________.

It's come to my knowledge that I'm not super familiar with everyone reading my blog.
And that sort of bugs me.
NOT because I think you're a 50 year old man creepin' on me, but because I love to make friends and it stinks knowing that you may know me, but I don't know you!

Here's my little metaphor that will probably bomb and burn into flames (In the bad sense of the word. Not Katniss fire.)

Right now, I'm like Ross. Partially because he's awesome and dorky, partially because he can (apparently) lift one eyebrow and I'm jealous.
YOU, my lovely reader, are like Phoebe. See, we're essentially friends. We read the same blogs, drink the same milkshakes, etc.
But we're not sitting next to each other Monica-Ross-Rachel friends... yet.
(Yes, I understand that Monica and Ross are sister and brother. They're still close- who else would live within a 100 foot radius of their sibling for 10 years? Oh, I also understand that Rachel and Ross are an item. That's not really what I'm looking for either... just to clarify.)

Please excuse that verbal diarrhea.

What I'm trying to say is....

(sticking out hand)
My name is Allison.
I like dancing when it's not called for, grammar (because it's always called for), music- all of it, and family and friends and school and everything mostly.

What's your name?

PS- Please please try and help me not look like a lame-o. Say hello! I truly want to get to know your beautiful self!

Hi Allison! I'm Sam. I already know you (in the blogging sense) but I wanted to comment anyway :) I am not a 50 year old man creeper, but a 22 (23 later this month) girl from Missouri.

I hope you get lots of comments and learn more about your readers! :)

TeresaD said...

Hi, I'm Teresa! I'm a relatively new reader, and I also follow you on twitter. I started reading because I realized we're the same age, but I've come to the conclusion that you're infinitely funnier and more clever than I am. Let's be friends!!

Candice said...

Hello, Allison!
I'm Candice!
I'm also a fan of dancing..during actual dance classes and whenever else I feel like it; writing, reading, shopping and cooking could also be added to my favorites list. I know we kinda sorta know each other because of blogging, but this post was so cute, so I had to comment :)

Hi! I'm Elyse. I'm a first year museum studies grad student. I'm a big ball of quirk and I like to give thumbs up. It's kind of my signature thing to do when I get all awkward like. I've got my own bloggy at www.elysiepiecie.blogspot.com .

Hey Allison! I'm Erin. :)

I just subscribed to you today, and I think your blog is lovely.

Lauren said...

Hi Alison! I'm Lauren and we are SO already friends in the Monica-Ross-Rachel friends way :)

I do feel sorta like a creeper because I am almost 10 years older than you... but whatev.

Kia Ora, Allison!

I'm Yi Lin (linnykins) from New Zealand. Been reading your blog for awhile now, ever since you've popped up on mine.. keep it up :)

HanneeNz said...

Hi Allison!
My names Hannah and I love to snowboard, read, play with sparklers and watch fireworks, toast marshmallows, dance while cooking (and to great tunes in my bedroom) and travel! (I'm actually from NZ, althought I'm living in the UK at the moment). I love your blog and am excited about your yummy lunch ideas that you are going to send me!

Abbey said...

Hi! I'm Abbey. I've been reading your blog for a while but only recently started commenting. I'm a senior in high school in the middle of nowhere, Norh Carolina. I LOVE: everything 50s, Harry Potter (including AVPM!), graphic design, reading, Jesus, musicals, and generally being a nerd. Oh, and all things DISNEY.

I've also had a blog off and on for a while... but I end up being bad about posting since no one reads it so I always delete it.

And this is random but have you ever seen Newsies? I feel like it's something you would enjoy.

Jessica said...

You're so the opposite of LAME!! Haha
My name is Jessica and I couldn't tell you how I came across your blog... probably from stalking other peoples blogs. :)
I'm not fifty but and almost halfway there!

D'Rae said...

Hello, I'm D'Rae. Don't remember how I came across your blog. Probably by reading someone elses, then clicking on someone elses and so on.

Love the Friends analogy by the way!

Yelena said...

Hello lovely lady :)

God and my family and friends are my world and my support systme. I hope to accomplish great things one day :)
Haven't been by your blog in awhile so now I'm going to do some cathing up :)
