Getting to Know You

Hey Followers,

I know some of you from real life and "internet life" but some of you, I'm not really sure who you are. Would you do me a favor and leave a comment telling me a little bit about yourself, please? There have been some disturbing things happening on a few other blogs about stealing pictures and pretending that someone's kid is their own kid (I'm not sure if how I am phrasing that makes sense, but I think you will get the idea), so I'd like to know who my followers are. I really am not trying to be snarky or anything, but for the protection of my family, if you don't leave me a comment about yourself, I'm going to block you from following. I'm also going to be taking some other precautions in the next week, which I will write a separate post about.

I don't need to know your life story or any information that is overly personal - just maybe what state you're from, perhaps an interesting fact about yourself, and I'd definitely like to know how you found my blog. Please respond by next Saturday :)

Oh, and don't get me wrong, I LOVE that I have you as followers, but I hope you will understand that I have to keep my family's interest as my first priority and I am trying to keep from having to make the blog private because I really don't want to do that.

Thanks so much and I hope y'all are having a fabulous weekend! I'm out of town for the weekend and I'll try to post on Monday. If not, Tuesday morning for sure!

How scary! Thanks for the info in this post, Lauren. I have really enjoyed reading about your journey through pregnancy & now motherhood even though we did not know each other very well in high school!

Sarah said...

Hey Lauren! Hope that things don't get scary with blog followers... I'm not a creeper! haha... Hope you guys are having a great weekend!

Bekah said...

Hi! My name is Bekah and I live in Burleson, TX. I honestly can't remember where I came across your blog at. I follow a few different blogs and I like reading yours (it keeps me entertained at work! lol)! Anyway, have a great weekend!

Kim said...

Wow, that's so crazy. Last week must have been the week for internet drama. There is a girl on one of the message boards that I post at who we think has done the very same thing. Craziness! Anyhoo, I am not sure how I cam across your blog. I think it was via another one of the people that I follow. I'm Kim, live in east TN, married with a 3 1/2 month old baby.

Emerson said...

Hey Lauren! It's been ages since we saw each other, but I have loved following your blog! Congratulations on the new baby. He is adorable, and I know you and Tim are going to be (already are) fantastic parents! Just wanted to let you know I'm not one of the crazy people!

Not sure if I'm a "Follower" but I love to check and see if there are more pics of the baby! haha

Kaitlin said...

That is pretty scary that someone would do that. I have been a follower for a while (I think since I started blogging). I try to comment, but lets face it I am the worst commenter 99% of the time. I live in CA, and can touch my tongue to my nose. :)

Well we haven't met I found you through the nest, you read my blog too. So you know about Ian, Casey and The Bug.

Bethany Thompson said...

I don't think I'm a follower because I don't really know how that works, but I'm pretty sure you know who I am ;)

I hope to be able to still read your blog after whatever security measures you take. That's totally creepy. I got an email from someone wanting to link my blog to something but it didn't end up being a real website. Very fishy.

Take care!

Steven & Amanda said...

I found your blog through the DFW Nest board. I'm a newlywed named Amanda from the mid-cities area! I'm not sure that I was an actual "follower" before today, but I didn't want to seem like a creepy stalker! I'm just a blog addict :)

stephanie said...

Hi My name is Stephanie and I am also an aggie. I like looking at the bump a lot and saw your pregnancy story because you said you went to A&M. I found your blog there. We are living in MT now because of my husbands grad school. Hope this helps.

Sara said...

Hey, we've never met, but I live in Arlington. I can't even remember how I found your blog, but really do enjoy feeling like there's more of us in the DFW area. Hop you haven't had any issues on your blog.

Mel Ramsey said...

lauren! just like to keep updates on the MKCHS alum :) your baby is precious- hope you are doing well!

Julia said...

That is scary! Came across your blog on The Bump and we've exchanged a few emails as we are both Aggies too.

Courtney said...

Hey Lauren...totally understand the need for precautions. This is panarama99 from the DFW Nest board. AKA, I'm Courtney, 29, and I'm about to have a baby boy of my own in the next month or so!

Christin said...

Hi there! You know me! I love keeping up with everything that is going on in your life! And I am sooo happy for you and Time. My mom asked about you last night and I was able to fill her in. I love reading your posts and seeing pictures of the baby. I think Catherine is a follower too. I can't wait to see more pictures of the Baby! -Christin (Neichoy) Smith

MrsSandro said...

I am Stephanie Juric from thenest/theknot. I have a baby girl. I haven't met you personally but I believe you read my blog and comment on my blog occasionally. :)

Seth and Lacey mase said...

Lauren I love your blog! It's fun to watch our babies grow up at the same time. Brendan is sooooo dang cute! I hope you can get the creepers to reveal their identities so we can all keep reading!

cspurlock said...

You're so sweet, giving people a chance to come out. I on the other hand blocked everyone & then gave out invites. You wouldn't believe what perverted things strangers posted on my blog. Anyways, hope everything is good with Tim & Big B! Later gator.

LM said...

Hey Lauren, it's Laura Musa. Sorry to hear about all the crazy shenanigans going on!!

Ashley said...

Hi Lauren. I'm Ashley.You "know" me better as maybebride from The Nest. I can imagine as a new mom how scary it must be to think someone could be taking advantage of you and your new little guy.

Carrie said...

Hey Lauren! This is Carrie50 from The Nest. I think you've commented on my blog, www.ourchangingfamily.blogspot.com

Catherine! said...

Hi! I don't think I'm officially one of your followers, but I do like checking out your blog and especially seeing the pictures of your adorable little boy! I found your blog through The Bump, and my husband and I are expecting our first baby (a boy!) April 24th. Hope your family is healthy and safe!

Amanda and Anthony said...

I'm mandarod from the nest/bump (where I found your blog link). I love keeping up with other local moms.

Danielle said...

Hi Lauren,
I saw the link to your blog via facebook. I know we haven't talked since chemistry @ A&M, but I've loved following your pregnancy story and checking out the pictures of your baby, as well as hearing what it's like to be a mom! :)

-Danielle

Kim said...

Hey Lauren!
You know me from the nest of course, and I love reading about your life as a new mommy :) Scary stuff about creepy blog readers- sorta makes me rethink me blog as well...

Shelli said...

I totally don't blame you for wanting to know who reads your blog. That is creepy! I started following your blog since we both post on the nest. I'm a fellow Aggie too (a few years older than you though, I'm class of 03) and realized you know one of my friend's sisters. I guess you must have been at A&M at the same time. Her name is Adreane and she's pregnant right now with her first baby. Her sister and I are the same age and grew up together. Small world! : )

Jacqueline said...

Hi Lauren! Just like Melissa, I love to just see how MKCHS alumns are doing! Hope you're doing good.

T-n-T said...

It's Tanya---We definately need to figure out a time when we can get together. Maybe next time yall come thru Waco we can meet up for dinner/lunch.

Jolie said...

It's Jolie from BLS

Lauren Arisco said...

Hi Lauren! I've so enjoyed popping in every now and then to see your little one. I may not always be logged in and I split offices so I might be a creeper....but I don't mean to be!

Nicole said...

Hi! I found your blog through someone else's blog from TK. The name popped out at me and I think your blog is very intersting! I don't really know what a follower is or if you have to sign up or something for that but I like to read people's blogs.

adie said...

Very strange! Can't believe someone would do that. Not sure if your blog shows me as a follower. I love hearing about all of your adventures as a new mommy! Addison will be here in 3 weeks (or less hopefully). We should really get together soon! Hope Brendan's tummy virus gets better VERY soon!
