National DeLurking Week.

It’s All About The Comments.

Did you know that it is National DeLurking Week?

What does that mean? It means that those of you that read this here blog (all seven of you) and those of you who don’t normally leave me any comment love, MUST DO SO this week.

In fact, you must do so on this very post.

Delurking was designed to draw out the people who haven’t commented.  I have always enjoyed delurking week because I usually *meet* new bloggers and new readers I wouldn’t have otherwise discovered.

Every blogger I know loves to receive comments. It makes our 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 worth reading. I absolutely LOVE it when a fellow blogger / reader can identify or connect with my words. That gives me a feeling I don’t know how to describe.

I have often wondered ‘how many comments’ I would /could get, if every reader of  this blog left a single comment, on the same post?

I think the highest number of comments I ever received for one post was 108? (That number included some of the lurkers that visit daily, but rarely leave comments or any evidence they were even here.)

Not to be an ego maniac or anything like that. It’s just that believe it or not, after reading someone else’s blog, I learned they think the comments they write might be better than their own blog posts.


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.

I would love to see THIS POST filled with COMMENTS from EVERY single: blogger /reader / friend / family member / stranger / lurker or passer by.

-Even if you have never left a comment-

What say you?

C’mon Make My Day!

    Still lurking:

    Damn you.

    Hey YOU! Its about time you left a comment over here

    No YOU are the best!

    You rock.


    Thanks doll

  • LeAnn

    I’m just a stranger and reader. I ran across your blog reading a friend of mine’s blog M-F. I really enjoy your stories. I’m too a single mom and still looking for love. Glad the magic words were said to you recently and hoping will happen to me someday soon. Your a fanatastic writer and will keep on reading.

  • Better late than never !!
    I hope that you reach your goal Meleah!

  • Jeez. I didn’t know anything about this. I toadally need my 2 lurkers to unlurk themselves. But a better idea? How about a day where the bloggosphere celebrates the person who consistently is the LAST to comment on a post. You know — the second before the author pushes the “publish” button on her next post? Yah. That would be sah-well. Muah. No lurker here, ever. Promise.

  • I lurk sometimes, but mostly I leave a message. Have a terrific day. 🙂

  • Always glad to leave a comment at one of my daily reads.

  • Meleah

    Nice to *meet* you.

    Its never too late to comment over here!

  • I have tried to get the lurkers out of hiding and they just won’t do it. Every blog has them as you know. I think this is a great idea. Why lurk? Why do people do that?

  • Meleah

    Its NOT too late!

    Your signature is CRAZY!

    I dont know why people lurk. Maybe they are shy. I think I managed to pull a FEW people out of hiding. But, I suppose I will never know ALL of the people who read this blog.

  • I’m so with you on this. I’ve found that I like receiving comments. My highest comment posts happen to be my Wordless Wednesday posts. Go figure. 🙂

  • i only *do* it for the comments. i sat down, one day, and said ‘i need more comments in my life, and what’s more, i want to keep myself up to 1am working to *get* those comments’

    oh it’s so worth it.

  • Hi It’s me Betty!!! lol!
    I don’t know what else to tell you about me. lol I’m always on twitter. I’m sure you know way too much already. Poor you! 😉
    I love chocolate, I enjoy a good glass of wine and I enjoy reading your blog. Tomorrow is mine & Joe’s 10th Anniversary.
    So happy to have met you on twitter. 🙂

  • I’m no lurker, but I’ll say howdy doodie anyway 🙂

    Thanks for checking on me, by the way.

  • Meleah

    Thats because you have posted some AMAZING photos!

    Oh Im so excited about your anniversary!
    Thats such a huge deal.
    Im glad I met you on Twitter too!

    Totally Worth It

    You’ve been on my mind a lot lately. You know I had to check in on you!

  • Comment. I’m with The girl it does sound perverted! I’m delurking…. he he
    I guess it fits since that is probably what the sickos do anyway.


  • There seems to be a holiday for everything. I hope we can come with a National Meleah week!

  • Meleah

  • Meleah

    Aw. I guess so.
    But, I only see a FEW comments from people I didn’t know read this blog.

    Thank you.

  • A bit late but I’ll delurk myself. I’ve recently started dropping by to see whats going on.

    So I guess I’ve officially delurked myself! 🙂
