Time To De-Lurk

I didn't realize until I read it on Snoskred's blog that today is National De-Lurk Day, which is set aside for people who read but don't comment on blogs.  On this day you're supposed to come out of the woodwork and leave a comment to let a blog author know you're there.

De-lurking was actually one of my New Year's resolutions, and I'm doing a better job of remarking on writing that interests or moves me, but I have more than 150 sources in my reader.  When I get busy I tend to read what's there and move on.  Or I'll save posts as unread, and after a couple of days I figure it's too late to click over to the source material and let the author know what I thought.  

If you're a lurker, too I challenge you to reveal yourself.  Tell me how you found my little part of the internet, or about someone else's part that you think I'd like.  Tell me what things are going on in your neck of the woods.  Tell me anything

Comment on.

  1. I forget how I found you, somewhere in my blog surfing travels I stumbled on a link to yours, I think.. very glad I did! :)

  2. The same here. I was thinking the other day, wondering whose blog folks came from to find and like another blog. Another life mystery.

    1. It's interesting...sometimes I look at the blog lists of places I'm commenting and see many of the same authors as the ones on MY list.

  3. I often comment on your posts so this doesn't count. I sure get lots of views on my blog but very few comments so maybe someone will see this and post a comment today. But, I'm not holding my breath.

    1. There's one blog on my list that Blogger says sends me dozens of page views each week. However, I'm still waiting for any of them to let me know they've been here.

  5. I don't always comment on blogs I lurk because I generally can't think of anything to say. I don't visit near as many blogs as I did when I first started blogging in '98, but I'm always on the hunt for blogs that call to me.

    1. You may not be a frequent commenter, but I always enjoy what you have to say :-)
