Are you a blog lurker? I am, at times. I admit it. How about you?
What is a lurker? You like a blog, and you may even read it regularly, but you rarely (or ever) comment.
Maybe you want to admire the blog post from afar. You feel you have nothing to add to the discussion. I can feel that way.
Maybe you've taken a vow of Internet silence. Maybe you are shy. I understand. I'm shy, too.
This week, the blogging community asks you to break your silence.
It's International Blog Delurking Week and it lasts until January 13.
This year, a blog I like to read (Happiness and Food), has taken over from the originator of this meme, Melissa Ford of Stirrup Queens.
The badge? Go to Happiness and Food, get it and comment there, too.
Parul, the blogger at Happiness and Food, won't bite. She loves trees. In fact, I can tell you she loves trees, because the second and fourth Friday of the month, she hosts a meme called Thursday Tree Love. In fact, if you love trees, I invite you to come back to Happiness and Food tomorrow with your tree loving post.
I don't bite, either (unless you are made out of chocolate). I'd love to see you comment.
You can just comment below, where it says "Post a Comment", and say "I'm here!" (unless, of course, you're a spammer. If you are, go away.)
I know, Blogger blogs can be difficult to comment on. But, at least today, won't you try?
You can tell me where you live. You can ask me questions. You can suggest topics you would like me to blog about. You can talk about the weather, food, or chocolate. You can follow me on Twitter or Pinterest (see right sidebar), too.
I am honored by everyone who comes by to read my posts. Thank you, if you have commented before. And thank you for commenting
today, if this post moves you. (And thank you if you have delurked on your own!)
Commenting to bloggers is like chocolate for many of us.
I look forward to hearing from you today, but, most of all, if there are other blogs you like where you won't you comment on them today, too? A new blogger, especially, gives up if he or she blogs in silence. Won't you make a blogger's day today and comment?
