because sometimes i actually follow directions

I hear today is National Delurking Day. Or International Delurking Day. Perhaps even Inter-planetary Delurking Day. I don't often follow the crowd on things like this but I have to say, this one intrigues me. Because if I don't know you are reading me, I will never know how to find you and start reading you. And then we will forever be like two lonely people on the subway, two ships passing at night, two mismatched shoes. Ok, I'll stop with the melodrama now, because you get the point.

So give it up, internets. On earth or otherwise. Let me meet you.

I've visited your site many times. I don't know what it is, but I have a hard time getting into and out of your site (I think it's this piece of sh** computer of mine). It takes forever. So, sometimes I click your site and get up and go do the dishes or dust the house and then come back to see if "you're there". Same goes for the comments - hense I've never left a comment. But ... today, I got in! Hi - nice to meet you.

Lawyer Mama said...

Well, you already know that I stalk you relentlessly, but I had to say "HI!" anyway. Oh & thanks for not getting a restraining order.

*Mwah*

liv said...

um, I've been lurking and not commenting for the past 2 posts. I am outing myself, saying 10 hail Marys, and sobbing into my pillow for the evil that I have perpetrated on your blog. I'm back. :)

Kyla said...

Let's pretend I'm a lurker.

Hi! I'm Kyla. I read your blog religiously. You amaze me every day, friend.

Wait, would a lurker say "friend"? I don't know. Dangit. I make an awful lurker.

Janet said...

You know what? I used to lurk on your blog a bit, because you had so many commenters, I felt shy about leaving a comment. Then you wrote the post asking where people would go in the world, if they could, and I remember you specifically sort of invited the Silent Sams to speak up too. So I commented. Now I stalk you. Sorry, yet? :)

Magpie said...

Dude. Can I delurk if I'm not really a lurker? My mind reels.

Kelly said...

I don't think I'm a lurker, for you are on my reader. And usually I don't put anybody on the reader unless I've felt compelled to tell them how brilliant I think they are. Of course, you could be the first!;)

Jennifer said...

Not a lurker, just a stalker. When is the Stalker Day?!

thirtysomething said...

JoeG said...

OK, Delurking from the shadows.

mitzh said...

Hello! I wish I could lurk but too much a good stuff here not to do that.

margalit said...

Longtime reader, first time commenter. I use bloglines. I'm a terrible person. I'm sorry! :-)

Jenny said...

Obviously I don't follow directions because I'm commenting a day late. What the hell is wrong with me?

Gwen said...

I'm delurking for NEXT year. So, see, I'm not late. I'm EARLY.

Nancy said...

Hiya.

Redneck Mommy said...

A day late and a dollar short. Story of my life.

But I'm here sweets. Always here.

Smooches.

PunditMom said...

You know I'm here!

Christine said...

just me here--not a lurker!

Gill said...

Hello, I've been known to leave the occasional comment, but the rest of the time I'm a lurker :-)

nomotherearth said...

Hey Jen - not delurking obviously, but I wanted to same that I read more than I comment on. Sometimes everyone has already said what I wanted to say, and I just feel dumb.

Ally said...

Hiya, friend.

meno said...

Hi.

<3

Susanne said...

No actual need to de-lurk here (though there are blogs where I only lurk). You are right, when people don't comment one doesn't get to know them.

bgirl said...

always here...
and oh how i love it here

Eve said...

I don't comment often, but I read and enjoy your thoughts. Sometimes I feel to inferior. Thanks for all the work you do.

PA said...

I just found your site today. It is making me consider how little I give in comparison to what I receive. And I think it is time to start changing that. Thanks.
