National De-Lurking Week

The week is almost over and I almost forgot to ask for lurkers to show themselves.

Are you out there? If you are, drop in and say hi. I'd love to know who you are.

And yes, I do allow anonymous comments. So far it hasn't caused any problems.

If you don't know, a lurker is blog language for a person who reads without commenting. That's perfectly okay but once a year we ask them to delurk. No pressure of course and no rules.

So far so good with Carol. We'll see how it goes day to day.

Thanks to all of you for the responses. Blogger comments have been acting up again so I'm reading as many of your posts as I can in bloglines but haven't had much luck trying to leave comments. It seems to be better now so maybe I can catch up with a few more of you.

Much love to all.

Glad to hear the update on Carol. I haven't posted anything on delurking, although I've seen it on a few sites.
Hasn't blogger just been horrid lately??
hugs!

Gawdessness said...

I hope you know that I am here almost always!

I was upset by reading your update yesterday on Carol.

It just smacks of wrongness.

Pam said...

Hi Ann,

Not really de-lurking as you know I am always around. Just been catching up with your blog as we have been away since boxing day.
Sorry to hear Ray has to go back into hospital yet again - is it the same thing?

Just came by to say hi so you know I'm not lurking ha ha. I read on bloglines too, so I don't always stop to comement. I was going to drop in anyway and tell you to come check out the link on my page for Pepperlady...She is doing a scavenger hunt which might be fun and I thought you could let your readers know about it. Her link in the the post I mentioned about it

Hi Ann,

I'm always around-here and there...Don't always leave comments and you know why! Blogger has been a pain for everyone lately!
Take care-always have your family in mind!

Hi thre. I've been reading since Thordora mentioned that Carol wasn't well. I didn't want to intrued, cause what could I possibly say. But now that it's apparently delurking week, shows what I know, well, here I am saying hi.

Merle said...

Dear Ann ~~ Glad to hear that Carol is going OK so far. I hope you are able to get some help in caring for her.
Apparently my last post showed up as symbols on some computers, so I hope that doesn't happen again. Love to all your family dear Ann. Love, Merle.

Gina said...

((Ann))

Here for you if you ever need me, even though I am a bit far away!

Peter said...

Not a lurker Ann, just have nuthin' to say at times.

J said...

I'm like Peter. Sometimes I comment, sometimes I don't. But whenever I come by, I am interested in what you have to say. I hope things get better all around. Happy Birthday to Rochelle. :) You seem to have a lot on your plate. I hope there are times when it doesn't feel so much that way.

Turtle Guy said...

Sadly, I have to admit, I've been much worse than a lurker. I've been a leaver. I've left you for some time, and I am sorry. I'm touring blogs right now and realizing WHY I haven't toured for so long. It takes so much time to read them! Thanks for the short post... makes it easier to keep up!

mo-wo said...

Ah you know me.. but I skulk and lurk sometimes I guess.

Puss-in-Boots said...

Ooh, Ann, lurkers! How exciting! Are they the same as flashers? You know, the guys in raincoats, lol!

Anyway, I promise not to lurk, but I can't promise not to loiter.

Glad Carol is holding her own and that, at the moment, things appear to be stable.

Take care

Janice said...

Hi Ann,

This is just the second thing I've read on the de-lurking, I may post something later.

I hope things improve, your still in my prayers and so is Carol.

Angela said...

Delurking (hahaha) to say hi! Does it count as lurking if you only say hi (on the blog at least) like once a month?

Dianna said...

I'm a long time lurker after finding you on Blogging Baby. I love hearing about your girls.

Kristen said...

The Zero Boss said...

Totally freaking de-lurked.

Kimberly said...

de-lurking here. And I'll try to do so more often. Bloglines just makes it so damn easy.
