Apparently, last Friday was ‘National Delurker Day‘. [As clearly stated via the date – on the logo below.]
And, sadly. I missed it.
Just like I missed it last year. This is becoming quite an awful trend.
But, since I’ve NEVER been ‘On Time’ for anything in my life, why should this event be any different.
What does Delurking mean? Well, basically, it means that I am inviting everyone – to open up on the comments of this blog post and let me know you’re out there!
[Whether you comment regularly – or whether you have never left a comment!]
Delurking was designed to draw out the people who haven’t commented. Over the last five years, I have always enjoyed delurking because I usually *meet* new bloggers and/or new readers that I wouldn’t have otherwise discovered. Sometimes, a comment from a long time reader or a newly discovered lurker literally makes my day. And not just for obvious reasons.
For me personally, getting a comment is more along the lines of validation that I wrote something other people deemed worthy of reading. I absolutely LOVE it when a fellow blogger, or reader, can identify or connect with my words. That gives me a feeling I don’t even know how to describe.
Anyway, I am curious to find out what the outcome would be, if I asked ALL OF YOU to post WHATEVER YOU WANTED in these comments.
What say you?
C’mon – Make My Day!
