International Blog Delurking Week

It's that time again! International Delurking Week!!!! Okay, well, sort of. It may or may not have happened last week, but, I just found out about it now, and I reason, that if one forgot Valentines Day it didn't mean they couldn't give flowers and chocolates on some other day and make it just as special?  Its just a part of life after the 'RSS feed' that more people read your blog than actually leave a comment. Since there's a week set out out to delurk, I thought I'd ask if you're reading to stop and say hi! As the lovely Mel put it on her blog:
It is fairly easy. Leave a comment in the comment section below admitting you’re here. You can simply raise your hand and meekly admit you’re here with a simple, one-word “here”; or you can proudly raise your hand and tell us all a bit about yourself (my preferred method); or you can tell me what type of cookie you’d be if you were a lump of cookie dough. The point is I want to know about the people who read me.
Are you a blogger who also forgot about International Delurk-N-Say-Hi week? It's not too late to post this yourself! [and then I won't feel like the only one on date night at a fancy restaurant with a big pink bear on February 18th] Either way, if you're reading this [yes, you!] thank you for reading, and do say hello! please? pretty please? :)

I read a lot of your blog but I've only commented few times.
God, I'm feeling like a stalker now.

I didn't know there was an International Blog Delurking Week! That's a pretty awesome name.

I need to say something about myself? I'm a 19 year old student who should be studying for an exam tomorrow.

Hi My name is Aysha as well,a bloglurker from London originaly from Lahore. Love reading your blog and following it since you were a teacher, law student and newly married posting your culinary creation pictures on the blog. You wrote one about the chicken legging it from the non stick pots and pans fumes.Love your writing style, your simple observations said in a simple sentence but with deep messages. I wish you all the best in your literary career.
