Delurking day: Come out and say hi!

Apparently, it’s Delurking Day. WHAT?

I know there are more readers of this blog who are quiet. Then there are those who leave comments (thank you very much). I totally get the silent readers. You come to read, liked/disliked what you read but still don’t say anything. I do that too. I lurk at other blogs (mostly because of lack of time to hit the comments button, etc).

But today is Delurking Day, time to come out and say hi.

I would love to interact with my readers so today, just today, I’m requesting my silent readers to leave a comment. Can’t be that hard. Just say, “Hi, I’m (your name) and reading from (your place).” I would love to know where my blog is read!

You could also tell me more about yourself if you like AND how you found my blog.

So if you have not commented on Sandier Pastures ever, why not do it today?

  1. Hi! Wendy, living in DXB. No idea how I came accross your blog but added it to my feeds quite a while ago now. Enjoy seeing your take on this city we call home, for now!


    • Thank you Wendy for being the first one to delurk! πŸ™‚
      It’s funny that my blog is based in Dubai but most who leave comments are my blog readers from outside UAE!


  2. Hello! I’ve just found your blog via your post on Twitter. I’ve lived in Dubai for years and have two small children. I’ll be bookmarking your blog on my iPad to read in bed with a coffee on a Saturday morning πŸ™‚


  3. Hey, I’m in the Philippines but I grew up in Dubai (was there till like 2 years ago). So I use this blog along with Gulf News as my window to Dubai, I soooooo miss that place.


    • Hey thanks for coming out to say hi. I know how you must be feeling missing the place. I know when we leave we will miss Dubai too. Hope you can visit again soon.

    • Thank you for delurking Shari. I have a blog friend from Oregon, Jennifer who has a blog called Diary of 1. Maybe you found my blog from there?


  5. Yes, I am one of the lurkers….. I live in the U.S. and the reason
    I found your blog was that I had a new co-worker at the time, about a year and a half ago that used to be a soldier in Iraq and then was working for a private fuel company in Iraq. Well he talked about his travels and also how he met his Phillipino wife while visiting in Dubai. I thought it was interesting, since I have never travel, and did a google search on Dubai and somehow found your blog and have been reading it ever since. I love hearing your observations of Dubai and seeing the pictures. It has opened my eyes to what it is like to live in other countries. Thank you so much for letting me lurk from here in Washington State, America.

  7. Hiya! I’m Mary, reading from Berkeley, CA. I get your email updates. I first found your blog because you were having a giveaway of some kind. I kept reading because I love Japanese culture, it is a very interesting perspective you give living as an ex-pat in Dubai, and also I am not a mom yet, but I enjoy hearing about you handling the craziness (I remember the post about Pr
