The Great Mofo Delurk

And I had no idea it was happening…

So leave a comment, will you? Especially if you haven’t left one before…

Profanity wasn’t my choice, motherfuckers. I just go along with it because if everyone jumped off the cliff, I would be diving too.

OOooh, I get to be the first?! I feel special!

I’m not really a lurker per se, but it has been a bit since I left a message besides ‘please add me’.

So, let me say Mel, THANKS for all you do. And the personal things you share with us. And all the hard work you put in to help this community help one another.

Ooh, rather than a delurk, let’s make it an all hail the great Stirrup Queen Mel in all her glory and goddesslikeness!!

3 Meghan { 10.03.07 at 6:54 pm }

I’ll third Queen Mel!!

4 JJ { 10.03.07 at 6:58 pm }

I saw this on another blog (outside the IF realm) today–glad you posted it!
Yes I agree, hail to the queen!

MoFo lurker de-lurking! Hi Mel,
I’ve recently added you and many other sister bloggers to my favorites… and obsessively check them for updates. I think I have a problem, haha. I want to thank you for all of the humor and wit that you provide for us (non-blogging) infertiles out there. I’ll try to de-lurk more often.

LOVE this idea. And All Hail Mel!!That’s even better!

Still working on the meditation thing…..

7 Steve and Jen { 10.03.07 at 7:13 pm }

Long time lurker here….finally delurking. Guess it takes calling me out as the Lurking MoFo I am to get me to come out into the light! Thanks for this site!

I’m not exactly a lurker, but I am a LIGHT commentor. So, hi!

9 Kris { 10.03.07 at 7:25 pm }


Love your list. πŸ˜›

Oh no! But I can’t follow Stephanie back to her blog. Everyone post a link if you’re delurking so I can find you too if I don’t already know you.

11 Paz { 10.03.07 at 7:42 pm }

Long live the Queen.

12 Cathleen { 10.03.07 at 7:54 pm }

I like the “ghetto vibe.” MoFo indeed.

All hail Queen Mel!!!

13 squarepeg { 10.03.07 at 7:55 pm }

hello! I’m a rare commentor.

… hail πŸ™‚

14 Stephanie { 10.03.07 at 8:26 pm }

Sorry I wasn’t clear when I said “sister bloggers” I meant all of you wonderful bloggers, as I don’t blog. I think you can see why! Although I think I just proved how obsessive I can be as a mofo lurker! LOL

Quick stats

15 Lori { 10.03.07 at 8:46 pm }

Don’t you just WISH I would only lurk?

16 mom2Travis { 10.03.07 at 9:16 pm }

A lurker saying hello, and thank you for this blog.


17 lori { 10.03.07 at 10:11 pm }

semi-lurker dropping in to say THANK YOU mel. i’m so glad i found you and all the lovely people you’ve provided a connection to. lord i wish i’d found y’all a long time ago.

-lori, a constant lurker and a sometime commenter (working on that)

18 Anonymous { 10.03.07 at 10:42 pm }

Another subfertile non-blogger delurking. Many rounds of IUI and angel maybe-babies… we’re currently on hold until IVF becomes a financial possibility.

19 Vee { 10.04.07 at 12:52 am }

Mainly a lurker these days with the occasional comment but I do lover reading Queen Mel ! Keep it up !

20 Jules { 10.04.07 at 5:48 am }

Hi Mel

21 Samantha { 10.04.07 at 6:42 am }

Fuck, I try to comment frequently! πŸ™‚ A little profanity never hurt anything, right?

22 Anonymous { 10.04.07 at 6:48 am }

Well, I’ve left a few comments on your blog recently, but thought I would say hello. I don’t have a blog myself, but love reading yours & others. Living childfree/less after infertility for six years now, and 9 years after the stillbirth of my dd in August 1998 when I was six months pg.

23 BethH6703 { 10.04.07 at 6:59 am }

I don’t know that I qualify as a lurker, but I can’t not respond to the use of “MoFo”!

Thanks Mel, for the support, for the community, for everything.

24 Artblog { 10.04.07 at 7:01 am }

OH go on, I’ll leave you one too! XXX

25 Grad3 { 10.04.07 at 7:11 am }

I haven’t been posting a lot but have been reading… my bad!

So glad to see Jane is back by the way- I have missed her!!!

26 Flygirl { 10.04.07 at 7:11 am }

Delurking to say hello. πŸ™‚

27 Caro { 10.04.07 at 7:27 am }

*pop* delurking – a bit late but hey.

28 Sunny { 10.04.07 at 7:49 am }

Well you know me, a day late and a dollar short. LOL

I love your swearing! Maybe I will make it my word for the day. Can you just see the kids faces as I say, “Mother Fer!!!”

29 Rachel { 10.04.07 at 8:18 am }

I am not technically a lurker since I do comment from time to time, but it’s been awhile. Thanks for bringing all of us together!

30 noswimmers { 10.04.07 at 8:53 am }

Queen Mel–we love you! Thanks for everything you do.

31 Soupy { 10.04.07 at 8:57 am }

Me , me , me
I try to pop in at least a couple times a week – not as good w/comments as I would LOVE to be…………

you ROCK! *hands up in rock star salute*

32 Fertilize Me { 10.04.07 at 9:20 am }

What a great idea. i was noticing I have ALOT of de-lurkers lately..comments are always so nice to get

33 Kristen { 10.04.07 at 10:09 am }

Haha, gotta love the mofo thrown in for good measure!

If your family is reading, they will love that I’m sure πŸ˜‰

34 journey to junior { 10.04.07 at 10:49 am }

i’m a lurker coming out and saying HI and thanks for adding me to the blogroll!!

35 Patricia { 10.04.07 at 10:50 am }


hello πŸ™‚
oh, and i’m totally stealing this post.


36 Beagle { 10.04.07 at 11:11 am }

I read more often than I comment but nothing so untoward as (gasp) lurking!

37 gold star { 10.04.07 at 11:46 am }

I’m not sure if I am a lurker. I think I post here but have a terrible memory. If I haven’t, shame on me, b/c I love your site.

38 Stacie { 10.04.07 at 1:02 pm }

New lurker here and I love what I found! Thanks for all you do!

39 ShannonRF { 10.04.07 at 1:25 pm }

I am finally delurking.

40 Michell { 10.04.07 at 4:13 pm }

This is a good idea. I don’t comment on all the blogs I read often enough.

41 TeamWinks { 10.04.07 at 4:34 pm }

I’m not a lurker. I comment from time to time. In fact, I count this as a regular stomping ground of mine. Thanks for keeping us all connected Mel!

42 Amanda { 10.04.07 at 5:00 pm }

little bit late… but hey, it’s something, right.

my first comment on the blog and this is it? sorry it wasn’t more memorable.

43 Anat { 10.04.07 at 6:08 pm }

Although I’m one day late for the great delurking, I can’t imagine that it’s too late to come out from l’yad ha’amud πŸ˜‰

44 Caroline { 10.04.07 at 6:15 pm }

Ok, after 6 months of stalking, I’m finally posting. Thank you so much for this site. I’m guilty of visiting at least once every day. Wow, I feel better already.

Now, I’ll go quietly back to my dark room . . .

45 Ally { 10.04.07 at 7:51 pm }

A part-time lurker am I. I think I like the idea of being called a delurked mofo, though. πŸ™‚ I love this site-I don’t know what I’d do without it. Thank you, Mel, for all your hard work, effort, and time spent on this labor of love.

46 Dreamer4agift { 10.05.07 at 12:01 am }

Not really just a lurker, but I guess I lurk more than comment. So, here I am, standing up off my fat butt to wave and say “hello everyone! I’m here!”

47 Baby Blues { 10.05.07 at 8:11 am }

Well you know me! Just putting in my comment.

48 Amanda { 10.05.07 at 9:38 am }

Am I a lurker…maybe…I think I left one comment.

So now I’m a delurked, even if I am late at it. πŸ™‚
