CALLING ALL LURKERS

I just saw this over at Pea's and had to join in. Today is the last day, so I almost missed this!!!
I’ve just learned that January 7 - 13, 2008 is National Delurking Week. I looked up what “delurking” means. Apparently, “lurking” is the practice of reading blogs and comment threads without commenting yourself, or making it known that you’re a reader. So “delurking” is making your presence known through comments, etc. Come out, come out, wherever you are! Let me know that you're here reading this:-)Feel free to take any of these captions and use them on your blog to promote National Delurking Week!!
I would be so honored and pleased if you, who are reading my blog and have never left a comment, would join in and delurk!!! I know from my site-reader there are many of you. I would love to know and "meet" you so please who-ever-you-are.......come out, come out!!!
THANKS!!!!

Susan,

GREAT IDEA! Although I am no longer a "lurker" on your site. I used to be and I would encourage others who are to take a minute to get to know you...it is well worth it!

Take Care,
Melissa

I'm not a lurker but I can understand it for those who are extremely busy and pressed for time. I am just glad that my blog is apprediated whether I know it or not.

Cathy said...

Hi Susan, I'm not actually delurking, but I am here to say thank you for always leaving me such sweet comments on my blog and to bestow upon you the You Make My Day Award. If you'll stop by my blog you'll see just what to do. ;)

Wouldn't it be fun if all of our lurkers would make themselves known? My site reader has been amazing since I began the twin story, but may do not comment.

LOL! Great idea!!

groovyoldlady said...

I never lurk. I like to talk/type too much! (and this is one of my favorite places to do it!)

Nadine said...

What a great idea. I'm not a lurker. I always comment when I read. I love to comment. I'm a commentaholic. I do because I appreciate a kind word or two.

Now that I'm not posting I find I have turned into a lurker. I hit my bloglines and read away. I have really cut my reading down and only check out my favorites.

Since I'm here and commenting I guess you know where you rate on my list of the people I love.

Thinking about you daily as well :o)

Kathleen Marie said...

Well, I am not a lurker by any means and I did miss posting this but I am sure it would be interesting to know who all read our blogs. I know when I look at stats once in a blue moon, compared to those who leave comments that they are a lot of lurkers out there. Hugs to you! Have a great day!

Susan said...

I don't lurk here...I usually comment. But let me use this opportunity to say that I love your place. It's a blessing.

:-) Susan

Lori said...

Just wanted to say hi! As you already know I'm not a lurker on your blog.
Have a great week!

Tina said...

Hi Susan, I confess to sometimes lurking, but you well know I comment a lot too! Sometimes I just don't have anything to say!

Jungle Mom said...

Susan, I try and get by here every day or so. I don't always leave a comment, but I am here!!!

Folded Wings said...

Hello Hello I am alive and well... but "quiet" because I am moving house - see my blog - I quickly did it because you were asking where I am :)

MightyMom said...

well, actually, I've left you a comment or two....but not lately as I'm just a bit busy...but never fear..I always stop by to read my favorite online preacher!

Pam said...

Well I'm certainly not a lurker but I thought this idea and button was a cuter idera. Plus I just wanted to come over and check on my blogging friend!
