Delurking Day!

delurking-day

Yes, I know it says 2011. I couldn’t find one more recent than that. Give me a break.

One of my favorite days of the year – delurking day! By the way: if you’re like me and only get around to reading posts a few days after they go up, no worries, you can still play along! :)

I confess, I am guilty of being a blog lurker. Often it’s because, I may like a blog post, but I don’t feel like I have anything really substantive to add, so I say nothing at all. A few weeks ago, I read on another blog, someone said regarding commenting, “When someone takes the time to prepare a meal for you, at the very least you thank them for the effort.”

I won’t lie, I was convicted. Since then I’ve tried to be better about leaving at least a little comment showing I read the post, even if I don’t feel like I have some brilliant commentary to add to the subject.

And that’s what today is about – the no-pressure opportunity to leave any kind of comment: introduce yourself, tell me about what you had for dinner, or just say a quick hi!

  1. Oh I am such a bad lurker! Especially with reading blogs in Bloglovin I just go through a whole bunch every day and rarely leave comments. I rarely get them on my own blog so I should know better and be more proactive about it... oops!

    1. That's the only thing I don't like about Bloglovin, particularly the mobile app - it's WAY too complicated to leave a comment! Makes me more of a lurker than I'd like! :)

  2. This is me, I am a complete lurker. I rarely have anything to say so I just move on. She has a good point though, it wouldn't kill me to just give a little thanks for sharing your time/experience.

  3. I think the internet ate my comment. Boo. Anyway, I'm a huge lurker. I lurk everywhere. I even lurk on Twitter now.

    Thanks for sharing bits of your life with us. I enjoy your posts, especially about Baby G. She's just so darn cute!

  4. Hello! I found your blog after you tweeted about potentially moving to Hawaii, specifically with a pet! I hope you're having a great day :)

  5. I try to comment on people's posts as much as I can, but I read mobile a lot and that tends to slow down the process...but I should keep that in mind. I'll try not to be such a lurker!
