Come out , come out, wherever you are


I just read that today is National (or has it reached international status by now?) Delurking Day. I am actually not too fond of the words lurker or delurker for that matter, it sounds like something you could be charged for. A lurker is someone who does not leave a comment, but reads your blog regularly.

I have a loyal bunch of blogging friends who read and comment with such tender care that I have never really give it much thought as to who is reading and not commenting. Lately though I have noticed that there are several regular visitors that are in the shadows - of my Sitemeter at least. Maybe they are too shy, maybe they just enjoy reading, whatever the reason I don't really mind at all.

Here is the but part, if there are any of you who do want to comment and say 'hello' please feel free, I don't bite (unless provoked) and I would love to hear from you. If you wish to remain behind the scenes that is fine too, I myself read many more blogs than I comment on...so no worries.

Hmmn. To make this all a little easier here are some weird facts about me and a few other random bits to make the introductions a little smoother.

reading day, delurking day, JP day. Sigh. It can all make a gal weary.

I'm officially de-lurking! Not that I have seen your blog before today, but since I visited on de-lurking day, I figured I'd introduce myself! I found you on Gwen's blog... everyone seems to be on Blogger these days... and I'm still stuck in Xanga-world. I didn't have much luck with my Blogger site back when I attempted to launch it. Maybe I'll try again. Anyway, love your site!

Hi Jennifer - delurking to say Hi!

Mimi said...

I'm soooo not a lurker, but HI anyways :-)

Gwen said...

Does it count if I'm a whole day late? I hope so, because this is the only place I've de-lurked.

Happy Friday!

Apparently I was lurking on this post! Hey!

I know I've commented before - but I'll bet lots of readers stay silent.

I wonder why that is??

I installed a sitemeter and was kind of freaked out by the number of visitors compared to commenters - who the hell are the lurkers??

not a lurker, but it's been a while since I've had a chance to visit, so...hi!
