182 thoughts on “Going private”
I am not afraid to be a non-joiner 😉
Ive enjoyed your writing very much- and I find a sadness arrives at hearing this news…
Hi Carrot, I would like to be added to your list.
oh yes, please add me.
Greatly enjoy your writing. Please include me
I’ve never met you, but I enjoy your blog. Add me please?
i would love to keep reading!
me too, me too!
please and thankyou
Please include me as well.
I’d like to be added too, and I’m curious about who you’re hiding from, if not the abundance of strangers who will be commenting on this post?
Will there be an interview process to qualify? I would love to be asked a series of ambiguous questions with no right answers. (Does that sound sarcastic? I’m totally serious, in a humorous way.)
I can’t wait to hear what you’ll say in the private of your locked up blog. “I can write about whatever I want” is truly intriguing.
I too am intrigued. I shall sign on the internet dotted line!
Nothing more intriguing than the private thoughts of a good writer – count me in, if you please.
I’d enjoy being able to read future episodes in the continuing saga of your well spent life.
I found this blog too recently to lose it now. I would like to be added to the list.
I can has add?
Hm. Got this email address? ‘Cause it’s not asking me to give one, but maybe that’s an automatic thing. If you’re not saying whatever you want, then I’m looking forward to what else there is to say.
(Instead of going private, I just made my blog less interesting again. So maybe this is a good move you’re making.)
I really like reading your blog! i found it from your post on craigslist, and have been reading it since!
Count me in Carrot!
I’ve followed you too far across this country and back to lose you now….
I really enjoy your blog and your zine!
i would like to be added.

please add me also, I am in portland and without you and jasper here I feel an odd sense of empty, as if there was a puzzle piece cut out of the air with your name on it.
Please add me to your list… and thanks! You are an exquisitely talented writer.
Loyal reader, that’s me. I Love Gossip!!

Dear god, I am glad I saw this in time! I would love to be added to, so I don’t miss one step of your inspirational adventure. ^.^
But I understand and agree to going private. And that whole small-town thing, too (having lived in numerous small towns). If I had a bigger readership than say… three… I’d probably be paranoid someone I didn’t really want reading my blog might find it and figure out who I was, LOL! ^.^ I would certainly write less, too…
please for me!
add me please, Carrot!
i’ve been silently reading for months now…
steeping in your prose like an aged teabag.
identifying with you on many points, mystified on many others…
i’m fascinated, and hooked.
don’t leave me now.

if you want me to comment, i surely will.
i’ve just been enjoying you doing your thing.

I’m Ro, and I work with T-bird. I love your writing, it is so very beautiful and entertaining and prophetic and poetic and rhythmic and picturesque. I love the life I lead here but also love to live vicariously through your stories of wandering and adventure like the breeze, the wave, the soil. Thank you for sharing your journeys, musings, wisdom. You’re a precious soul! Add me to your list!
Please add me to your list so i can keep up with your vivid writing when the blog goes private!

I discovered your blog when it was nominated for the Lezzie, and have read it ever since! I read on google reader so add one to your counter for me =)
Please add me to your private roster, thanks!
I find myself curious enough about what might happen next to do something absolutely unthinkable for me, ask to be included. Please.

Please add me! Thanks for linking back to the post – I’ve been away and would hate to have missed it. 🙂
hi! add me.
i have gotten off track reading due to crazy work month (sexual assault awareness month) but i have been sitting her for an hour catching up.
are you ever coming back to portland?
also, have you seen any mystical foxes yet?
Hey! I love your writing. Please add me!
Please add me as well. I discovered your blog recently and it has hooked me.

i like to listen to stories about your ventures and i’d like to be added too. is your blogspot also protected, or can i be added to the reading list for that also?
i am jumping on freights in about two weeks. maybe i will see you on the road, then.
I’ve been enjoying following your story for some time now and it brought a smile to my face to learn you’re up in Alaska. I lived there for all-too-short a time and hope to go back someday, in the meantime, it’s nice to hear some news from “home”.
You’re certainly an inspiration in my life, sedentary as it is at the moment. Take care up there, in Alaska.
If you’d care to add me to your list of readers, I’d be glad of it.
I would love to keep following your blog about your Alaska adventures. Please add me to your email list.
i would like to be added too,
yes please. add me?
please, let me in on the secretses too
add me add me add me
My, but you are popular and fancy now. Look at this! Everyone love Carrot Quinn! Hurrah hurrah!
I am on the East Coast again, Carrot Quinn. I am thinking of you right now and maybe next month as I hurry on and on. Soon I will be close to Asheville, where we last truly spoke and I was bitten by the groundhog. Making eye contact with you in a busy portland coffee shop three months later doesn’t count.
I would like your password protected business, and I would like some of your time one day, to sit and chat and discuss old things and new things.
I hope you are well,
I would very much like to read your story polished and whole.
You write with the kind of earnestness and character that far too many english teachers have tried to stamp out of far too many young minds yearning to be validated.
If you please, you’re an inspiration, I too would like to join the mass of people asking to be a part of your life, as unconnected as we are.
Thank you so much,
greetings! i adore your blog….and am grateful to you for your sharing and your heart. please add me to the clan of password bearers, i hail from canada.
thank you, with all my heart! xo crow
as yer friend, i want access to top secret information as well, if yer inclined to give it. if’n not, that’s okay too.
please add me as well! this is one of my favorite blogs.
Howdy! I dreamed about you last night! We met in San Francisco and it was raining, and everyone was sledding down an icy slope on cheap metal sleds. And you had this sideways eyebrow piercing. You were with another girl, presumably your lady friend, and you were famous and it seemed like you were over the novelty of it. I approached you and introduced myself, but you passed me by on your way inside a house. As you shut the door I shouted (a bit pathetically, I think) “But you’re my favorite writer!”
It was comically sad and senseless, and I hope you’re having a good day. If you wouldn’t mind me reading, I’d appreciate the password to your top secret words. Good day!
Because of your mis-placed post that was placed in correct order, i spent hours last night enraptured by your writing. Yay archives! i found out i know a few people in common with you, not just sweet genius Detail Collector….though i don’t think we’ve ever met. I would love to have the password to read your protected posts. email me: good and green at g mail dot com, if you want elaboration on mutual connections!
-your fan in Vancouver BC

Hello, Carrot Quinn. I would like to be able to read your secret posts. I like your writing.
I’d really like to know the password please firstname.lastname@example.org
also was trying to figure out how to read your blog from the beginning, had trouble finding the link.
We met once many years ago. We huddled waiting for a train, got questioned by the cops and criticized for the inspirational notes in my wallet, rode a unit towards sacramento… was this you i was with?, seems so long ago its a foggy memory. anyhow, i’d love to read your posts.
I’d love the password.

The password is “behonest”. Thanks for reading!
Can I be added?
I enjoy your writing. You paint pictures with words. Yes, include me in all your posts. And Thanks!!!
You write well. My kids are about 10 days behind you and I’ve enjoyed getting a picture of the trail and the emotions of thru hiking ahead of them. Their blog, if you’re interested is http://pctwimberger.wordpress.com/
Please add me.
Today, I went to the beach front with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it
to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell
to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her
ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but
I had to tell someone!
It’s great that you are getting ideas from this piece of writing as well as from our discussion made here.
Sad that its over, Glad to be home. And the trail never ends.
Really enjoy reading your posts! They’ve been very helpful for my own PCT planning. Hope you will add me to the list as well.
Thanks for being invited to read the pw protected blogs as well! GoWest
I’m slowly making my way through your blog, mostly backwards (as I do with most.) I’d love to read any protected posts when I get to them.
I can’t wait to hear about your ramp up for the CDT in 2015. I’m hoping that’s the year I’ll be able to attempt the PCT.
Getting ready to read your blog, would love to make sure I don’t miss any of it. – BigToe
Oh my! I just found you on another bloggers blog roll. WOW! You, darling, are a writer! Write it and they will come. I’d be honored to read every word. Thank you in advance if you share your password. LOVE your style, your heart, your spirit. Bravo!
Carrot, just finished your PCT blog. Loved it! I felt like I was with you and your friends the whole way. I have section hiked portions of the PCT in California and Washington and you’ve inspired me to start planning for a through hike of my own. Looking forward to hearing about your CDT endeavor and enjoying your writing in the interim….
Love your writing. Looking forward to PCT part II. You are inspiring me in so many ways.
I’d like to be added. Thanks.
Please add me, too. Thank you!
Hi Carrot! Love your blog, want to live vicariously through you! Really someday I would love to walk the Camino so I think your writing could help me with that! I want your password! 🙂
Greetings! I’ve been reading your blog for a while now and finally got the bravery to go ahead and give you a shout out from Huffman Texas!
Just wanted to mention keep up the good job!
I love reading your blog!
