Some dude I just clicked on named Rude Cactus decided that today is Delurking Day, but after doing some quick research I realized that according to some other blogs, it’s actually Delurking Week! And according to Dad2twins – if you don’t delurk – you’re a commie! Greeblemonkey picked up the thread and made this graphic. Well, it was so cute I just had to put it up!
Its funny, I’ve been thinking about lurkers recently, so this is very timely! Just the other day, I hit 3,000 views, and today it’s 100 more, but do I have 100 comments? No. Are my posts so unfriendly that I repel your comments? I look at my feed traffic stats and see familiar towns and cities, but nary a note from a long lost friend or even a whassup from a new acquaintance. Why, Santa Barbara, California don’t you say hello? I grew up there, we might even know each other! Bothell, Washington – who are you? Do you live anywhere near the first house I bought at 18% interest back in 1980? Cedar Rapids, Iowa – we have relatives there, are you one of them? Edinburgh, Scotland – hi! We’re coming to visit you this summer… we should talk! Irmo, South Carolina – if you are not my niece Michelle, then you certainly must know her!
As usual for me, when I am inspired, a limerick is usually not far behind, so I’ll leave you all tonight with some spur of the moment, homemade delurking culture, and honestly, I think it’s pretty good, but – what do you think?
And comments, the ultimate perk
Then get off of the fence
Put in your two cents
But please don’t continually lurk!
