Hmmm. I just read rumor that today is National Blog De- Lurking Day. I would have thought something with such an astounding level of cultural significance would have been documented on my calendar, however, 'tis not. 'Twas documented at Rage Against the Minivan instead.
Here's the thing. I really don't lurk anywhere. Truly, if I am reading I am commenting. It's just in my nature to communicate with folks through the artificial means of typing on a keypad into the air. The fact is, I usually have something to say. My brain churns out responses or questions to everything I read. I can't make it sit still.
My point is...... this deeply meaningful holiday honoring United Blog Lurkers of the World is not meant for me. This may surprise you, because it certainly surprised me, but there are about 500 people who come here and read a new post. No seriously, it's true! There might even be more! Soooooooooo................. whatcha' doin?
Whatcha' doin' right now?
If you are a lurker, I would like to formally invite you to briefly de-lurk. After all, it IS your holiday. A quickie comment to the effect of HI I am __________ and I read here would be just lovely. If you wanted to say something about why you read here, that would be even more lovely (anyone who is obligated to read because they know me IRL and I will quiz them when I see them, go ahead and refrain from that part). If you like, you may even comment as to the things you don't like about reading here, that's how serious I am about honoring National De- Lurker Day. Provided you keep in mind that I am extremely sensitive and it will crush my soul if there is a lot of bad stuff.
Bring it on!
