Delurker Yourself!

I totally forgot today was International Delurker Day!!Gah! I meant to schedule this post days in advance and here it just snuck up on me. Slacker me.

For those of you who don't know, a "lurker" is a regular (or semi-regular) blog reader who comes, reads, and leaves without leaving a comment.

Come on, we all do it. I do it, too, so no fear. There's no judgement here.

So, today, if you don't often comment here, if you've never commented here or if you're a brand-new follower, just drop a note and say hi! No pressure to write anything profound or insightful. Just a friendly "Hey, y'all!"

And please, for the sake of all that is good in the world, have your reply-to email set. If you don't know what I'm talking about, see the link at the top of my page. Every time you enable your reply-to address, an angel gets his wings.

Also, notice my sweet new blog header up there? Courtesy of Dirt and Lace Designs, yet again. I'm telling you, this girl is fabulous. Her button is in the right-hand column. Go, click and be amazed.
