It's Delurking Time

While scouring the blogosphere today, I found out that it's Delurking Day.


Other blogs are sticking with Delurking Week.


Either way, it's exciting.

So what exactly is delurking?  According to Net Lingo:
delurking: slang for coming out of online "lurking mode"; and
to lurk: to read messages on a blog without ever replying yourself

Which means, if you are reading this (whether today, tomorrow, or even next year), you should leave a comment.  It really doesn't matter what you say.  I'm just curious about the people who read my blog.  SiteMeter gives me the statistics – how many people stop by, where they're from, how long they stay, etc.  But that's just so…impersonal.

And guess what?!  You don't need an account or a blog to leave a comment!  Honestly.  I can walk you through step-by-step.  (If you already know how, just skip ahead.)

1. Go to the bottom of the post click on 'Comments'.


2. This will open a pop-up window.  Type your comment in the box.


3. Then click on the little circle beside 'Name/URL'.


6. Type in your name.


6. Click on 'Publish Your Comment'.


7. You may be asked to do word verification. 

That's it.  Very, very easy.

Happy Delurking!

Thank you for such detailed instructions on posting a comment. I just felt so lost before- I had so much to say, but no idea how to say it.

So today my pet turtle rolled over. It was fantastic. He should join the olympic rolling team.

The stamp collection is going really well. Only twelve more and I'll totally win first prize at the convention this year.

You should email me your address and then I will write you letters. I know you have a fetish for them. I could also send you care packages, because god knows you're probably hideously deprived up there. Denny's corner store can't meet all your needs.
