So I guess you should just show yourself already

Today is DeLurking Day.

I would create a link for you to see what that is, but I am too lazy. And too busy. And too tired. Basically it means that if you read a blog but never comment, you are a lurker. So, today would be the day to out yourself.

I am definitely interested in who you are. I see over 450 of you in my Feedburner Subscriber number so I know you're out there.

I can hear you breathing on the other end of the line.

And, for the sake of keeping my sanity, if you don't ever get a reply from the comments you leave on my blog, it's probably because you are a no-reply commenter. PLEASE FIX THAT so I can be all friendly and nice to you. 'Cause I'm like that in real life. Pinky swear.

Come on out & show me who you are. Not in a trench coat, preferably.

Haha, so true about the lurkers. This is the first time I have read your blog, so I am not a lurker (see I left a comment).

Delurker Day, huh? Hmmm, maybe I should mention it over at my place (especially about the nocommentreply thing! that drives me crazy).

Obviously, I'm not a lurker - but don't put me in the stalker category either! I just love coming here. :-)

Hi! I found you via the comment section of Ravings of a Mad Housewife. When I saw you were also a mother of 5, I stuck around to compare notes. I started working full-time when school started last Fall and my blog shows the neglect. But you're welcome to stop by and visit anyway.

I'm only a mini-lurker, because I've commented a couple of times! But I promise to comment in 2011!

I love reading about your life and your family and I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your photography. :)

I'm a Pro Lurker I'll admit but I have commented on one of your posts before so I'm not too Lurkey here I hope! I just always feel like i'm walking into a room full of life long friends and feel weird about jumping in on the conversation. But you gotta start somewhere right? Oh and what's a "no-reply commenter"?

Aubri said...

Well guess I should have clicked that convenient link you provided to find out what a No-Reply Commenter is! Doh.

Now I'm definitely NOT Lurking!

Ok, I know I'm not a lurker, but just wanted to say HI!

Karen said...

Cassie CH said...

I am so guilty of lurking! Sorry! Or as my two-year old says, "Soddy!" I'll try to comment more b/c I do love your blog :)

I only lurk some of the time, but it's not my fault, it's the ipad's fault and the stupid auto correct. It changes half of what I write so it takes five minutes to write a two second comment. Like this one. If anything is misspelled or crazy sounding, not my fault. I always comment when using the computer. Off to check my google account settings!

Sarah said...

I'm half a lurker...I comment - just not every day...but still...even though de-lurking day is "over"...here I am commenting :D

Now to get some clothes on...sitting around my living room in nothing but a robe is a bit...um...cold

Jennifer said...

HI! **waves** I'm not a lurker- just that weird friend that won't leave.

I've been pretty lurky the past few months, but starting to get back in the swing. Can't believe I missed posting on delurking day when I was on my trip.
