Official Delurker Day 2010

I see all the people coming to my blog every day via ip addresses and Internet Providers.  I think, hmmm, I wonder who that it is? Are they commenting? Do I know who you are? Why do you come back? Does the chaos of my life entertain you? Do you make a point to read my blog when you have time. Have you never commented on my blog, or other blogs? Well today is the day!!!

lurkI also read blogs. Some of these bloggers intimidate me.  I think gosh, I just have this little ole’ blog where I talk about my family and random stuff. I see all these men and women pour their hearts out with wonderful stories, questions, angst? What do I have to offer them? Well a comment, a “me too, I agree”.  People love that they have readers on their blogs.  Believe me, bloggers love comments.  It justifies what they are writing. Otherwise, it wouldn’t be public. I’ve been very brave lately, and left tons of comments. Believe me, this is something I used to never do. Even Angry Husband has said, “stop lurking, leave a comment…” He knows me too well.

So feel free to comment today! If you have a question for me, let me know. If there’s something you want to say, do it! Also, if you want to e-mail me, you can always do that.  My e-mail address is angryjuliemonday@gmail.com.  I might not get to you right away, but I will as soon as I can.

You are a great commenter! And I love this post and totally agree! Having any kind of comment gives you a pat on the back that what your writing is for a purpose! I'm always mystified by the random IP addresses and definitely try to comment back when someone leaves their website! Thanks for another fun post!!

I'll admit that in addition to being a poor blogger (if I could even still be considered one at this point) I've been an uber lurker. Claiming I don't have "time" to leave a comment. Obviously I'm committing some unnecessary time to lurk. Oops. Failed justification. Story. Of. My. Life. Viva Angry Julie!!

So true! I'm new to blogging and believe me when I say I would daily checks to see if I had any comments (okay, more than daily). Not that I really needed them but I really WANTED them:) They started rolling in, just a few, but enough to let me know people are reading my stuff and they don't think I'm nuts or stupid or a total geek (just a minor geek). I'll be back.

I'm trying to stop lurking so much myself. I have to admit, since I started twitter following you, I've read every post. I just feel stupid commenting "Oh interesting" or something...like maybe I am wasting your time with my inane babble? But then, I heart other people's inane babble on my blog, so I should take a lesson from that. I'm unlurking. And for the record, your blog intimidates ME for those same reason. I feel so plain and boring!

I'm trying to be a better commenter too! I'm the queen of the lurkers. Love my fellow OC girls.
