Delurking Day, 2011

It’s that time of year again!

I love how Chris from Rude Cactus reminds us yearly about the time to let the people who read our blogs to pop out of the woodwork and say hello – even if you aren’t a regular commenter, to come on out just for the day and say hi.

I know that my writing frequency here is sporadic. I tend to try to STOP MYSELF from blogging when I have no real subject to talk about (unless it’s Thursday, in which case, all bets are off – I’ll ramble whether or not I have anything even remotely resembling a point).

I love writing. And I would probably write if there was only one person reading. I have always loved writing. I do it because without writing, without words, my brain is not the same (shush. I have a brain. I’ve seen it on an MRI. I know it’s there).

The thing about blogging is this… Though I could write solely for the sake of writing – and do – if I didn’t like the interaction I get from the people who stop by my little space in the internet, I would just write in a journal.

I don’t. I write here.

I love comments and the interaction I get with people who stop by.

So, if you ever venture into this space, even if you don’t normally say hi, please take two seconds today to delurk and say hello.

Pssst. Hi. Delurk.

I love how Chris from Rude Cactus doesn’t let us forget Delurking Day. Delurking Day, if you didn’t know, is a day to leave comments for the blogs you normally read and don’t leave comments for. A day to say hello and hi. I did a Google search and have seen several different dates listed for D-Day, but… since I missed the other ones and have this wicked graphic Chris sent (via Aimee of Greeblemonkey)… TODAY is the day.

So, while you’re reading your favorite blogs today – even if you don’t usually – leave a comment. You can practice here. Hi, how are you. Good to see you. Gosh, that shirt looks great on you. That color really brings out the little flecks in your eyes.

And tell me where YOUR blog is, so I can come by and say hello to you.

Happy DeLurking Day

Today is a very special day. Not as cool as Christmas but way cooler than Groundhog’s Day, today is DELURKING DAY. That means I encourage you – I strenuously encourage you – to leave me a comment to say hi and introduce yourself. If you’ve got a blog of your own, I’d love to check it out.

Happy Delurking Day!
