10/21/10 is LOL V Day
The fifth annual Love Our Lurkers Day, that is. This is the day we spanko bloggers give an extra special shout-out to our readers, particularly the ones who read us regularly, but are too shy to post a comment.
Started and organized by the incomparable Bonnie, LOL Day is an open invitation for our readers to “delurk” and post a comment. It doesn’t have to be long, it doesn’t have to be Shakespeare. You can just say hello and introduce yourself. You can say why you like the blogs you do. Whatever you feel like saying, it’s a nice way to break the ice and make new friends in the blogworld.
I am especially pleased to be involved this year, because it’s my first year on Blogger (as opposed to my antiquated blog on MySpace). I feel so much more connected now and I hope readers will feel comfortable enough to step up and say hi.
Here’s the deal, folks — some people may have trouble leaving a comment. Unfortunately, because of one persistently nasty poster, I had to disable the “Anonymous” comments option. There are several other options for commenting, but for whatever reason, some folks are unable to make them work. And damned if I know how to advise them. 😦
So, here is what I suggest. If you would like to leave a comment but you can’t, then write it to me at the email address used with this blog: email@example.com. That way, I can collect those comments and paste them into another post, acknowledging you all. Bonnie loves for us to keep a count of all the “delurk” comments we get, so she can compile the stats.
And for those who CAN comment, please do! I’d love to hear from you. Thanks to one and all for reading my blathering. Without our viewers, bloggers would just be keeping an electronic diary. What fun is that?
Happy LOL V!
