That DOES have a nice ring to it! De-lurking 🙂
It strips away the facade of stealth and welcomes you into familiar territory. What a lovely word! On Laurel’s blog yesterday, I heard about International Delurking week for the first time. Naturally, I was curious!
(This badge was created by Melissa, and she has kindly given permission to use it to anyone who wants to do their own International Blog Delurking Week 2015 post.) Thanks for this, Laurel!
What is International Delurking Week?
International Blog Delurking Week traditionally takes place in the first full week of January, and is an opportunity for bloggers (in this case, me) to find out who reads their blog. (From Laurel’s blog)
It’s on till the 10th of January, by the way, for those interested in doing so 🙂
As it turns out, it is the day when you call upon all those million readers of yours (who am I kidding! 😉 ), to come out of the ‘Like’ zone and leave a comment on your post. I understand why most of us don’t have the time to leave a comment. I mean, hello! We have lives in the real world, am I right? Clicking ‘like’ on Word Press is infinitely simpler. It also seems to say, almost without saying so, ‘Hey, I read your post and I liked the way you said whatever you wanted to say, but I just don’t have the time to leave a long comment right now, so kindly excuse me, but I will follow and love your blog forever!’ Or something along those lines 😀
So, just for today, I have a request. If you have liked or followed this blog and have read my posts and maybe even enjoyed them (gasp!), do leave a short and sweet comment for me, please? Just so I know where I have to send this year’s Christmas gifts when December swings around 😉
