Delurker Day 2011

Today is “Delurking Day 2011″.  What is a lurker? A lurker is someone who reads discussions on message board, newsgroup, chatroom, file sharing, Facebook, blogs, or other interactive systems, but rarely or never participates actively.

My husband calls me a lurker, ALL THE TIME.  He doesn’t realize how hard it is commenting on blogs, etc. on an iPhone.  I usually “star *” posts in my blog reader to comment later, or I e-mail blog posts from Twitter to myself to read later.  Most of the time, I do follow through and actually comment.  I’m trying to be a better commentor, and replier.  I did really great this week following up with my Wordless Wednesday commentors.  Now if I had at least 36 hours in a day, imagine how much I would get done.  I might actually have clean underwear.

So if you are a regular reader, or umm “stalker” of my site, comment, and let me know you are there. I appreciate the comments and I will know that someone is actually out there listening to my non-sense.  If there are more things you would like to see on my blog, or me write about, let me know.  I’m going to work on getting some guest posts this year, and some other fun things.

I'm a lurker sometimes myself, but mostly I try to either tweet or leave a comment when I've been somewhere. I am so excited to be a part of your newbie Blissdom tribe! Looking forward to meeting you NEXT WEEK! p.s. can I borrow this idea? I wonder if any of my lurkers would confess in the comments?? interesting.

I ♥ you!! I TOTALLY understand about reading on your phone- and never commenting. It's too much trouble- which is a terrible excuse. I really need to make more of an effort to comment.

Me! I read thru my Google Reader so I don't always take the time to actually go to the blog. But you keep me entertained!

Ya know, underwear is over rated. Yes I'm a lurker, but at least I'm not a troll. I love your writing & hope to one day get enough energy to possibly start a blog. I would also like to hear more about fashion & clothes....whenever the picture of you is up with your camera strap & DH sees it he always wonders if you are a real crime scene photographer LOL

I'm a bit of a lurker myself. I always mean to go back and comment, but never seem to actually do it. This is a really good reminder to actually click out of my reader and support the folks I'm reading!

Yup, I lurk here. Guilty as charged... and now feeling convicted to comment more. I know I should, but like you said - it's so hard from the phones! See you at Blissdom! :)

Oh no! I'm a lurker. I barely have enough time to read all the blogs I follow so I rarely have time to even comment. I will try and be and better about it. If you look at my blog, you will notice that I barely have time to keep that current. :)

I'm here. I understanding the lurking. I read a lot of things on my phone or with my children buzzing around which prohibits me from putting more than two words together. Phrases like "stop it" I can handle otherwise I am an incoherent mess. But I am trying!!!

well, i am not a stalker, but i would love to see you talk more about your fashion style and clothes. we don't get to see you on here to often, but when we do, i have always loved everything you wear, including the hair accessories you often wear. perhaps no one else is interested in that stuff, but i would enjoy it! :)

I'm not good at lurking... I'm afraid people like me are going to inspire a National Shut Up for a second Day.

I'm here...I'm a recovering blogstalker. I think it's a process. I also love funky headbands. Can't wait to meet you at Blissdom
