Love Our Lurkers day

This is Love Our Lurkers Day, the day started by Bonnie at bottomsmarts.blogspot.com to encourage our lurkers -- those of you who read but never comment -- to come out of the shadows and join our community.

If you are here, you are interested in this lifestyle and bloggers love to have feedback. The more of us who share our thoughts, the better the community is.

This is a special day for me because I was convinced by Bonnie a few years back to stop lurking and sign up and start commenting. One thing led to another and soon, I was getting to know some of the people in our community and then was convinced to start my own blog.

So you have nothing to lose and much to gain. I hope to see some lurkers stop by and say hello. And maybe even consider doing your own blog.

I want to welcome you and encourage you to join our community.

  1. I don't qualify as a lurker. I started a blog then found other blogs! But I'll drop in and say hi anyway.

  2. FD, I don't always comment because often I don't have time to read the articles - but I do stop by and love that you take the time to find the articles you think we might read. Love that.

    Happy LOL Day

  7. Just recently found blogland and I'm really enjoying the ride. I love your set up to promote discussion. I think sometimes there are topics I'd love to discuss but have no one with whom to discuss them. I talk to a friend at work somewhat opening and now her husband's refers to me as horn dog. Good grief! Sorry, a little of track. I enjoy your blog.

  27. Its very difficult to come out of the shadows. Sometimes the fear of openness or being judged prevails. So let this be a first step. .....ms
