Calling all lurkers

January 5, 2010

in Blogging

From UrbanDictionary.com:

1. lurk
On a messageboard or anything similar [i.e THIS BLOG], to browse very often, but without ever posting anything.
That guy is always lurking, but he never posts.
2. delurk
Entering an online discussion after a time spent lurking, esp. if suddenly prompted to do so.
Your ridiculous comments have forced me to delurk.












I know I’m beating around the bush. What I’m trying to say is, if you’re a reader who has never (or rarely) commented, won’t you please speak up today? Even just to say “I’m here.”

Thankyouverymuch.

I’m a semi-lurker. I read most posts, but don’t comment as often as I should. So consider this comment semi-delurking!

Happy Delurking Week!

I have put you in my Reader! And I have actually read before, but now I am here for good.

(And I stayed up way to late last night reading your adoption journey blog . . . you are a wonderful writer, and I am so glad that you shared your story – what an awesome inspiration to others hoping to adopt!)
