Lurkers? Gotta love 'em!

I came across a few posts out there in the blogosphere pronouncing today "National Delurking Day"...  my computer does not like this word - it is underlining it in red and insisting that it is not a word at all... however, it's not MY word... it's their word.  (No, I have no idea who "They" are....  this is just the universal "they" who seem to know all and do all the research studies....  you know... "they")


"They" even have a logo...


a logo that might make my kids' eyes pop out... they're sheltered.

and that logo is supposed to make you, my dear readers come out of hiding and say a big howdy so that I can get a little ego boost for my day.

I hate rules.

What do you say we just don't play their game?  Yeah, go ahead - comment all you like - I'd love to see a b'zillion and 3 comments down there, it would make me smile... but to make me LAUGH (out loud even) I would love to see a b'zillion and 3 ANONYMOUS comments - all proclaiming their undying love of me.  Or your undying love of Hostess Twinkies for all I care.

Yep, I know there are lurkers out there, and I'm just saying for the record - I luv ya... you don't HAVE to comment to be part of the MoreInfo family (although you might have to wear a name tag at family reunions because it will be hard to recognize you).  Lurk, Delurk... whatever makes you happy - I might love comments like most women love chocolate... but in the end, it turns out I write for me...  whether I get 29 comments or 2 I'm happy if I've made myself laugh.

That being said... don't STOP commenting... because if I suddenly drop down to 2 on every post I might cry.  Big crocodile tears... which are bad for my complexion... and I'd break out like it was 1999... (trust me...  bad year for my skin)... which would cause me to stay home a lot... and watch Oprah...  okay, maybe not Oprah...  probably re-runs of Psych... or Monk...  and... oh shoot, that'd just cheer me up all over again... what was my point?

I anonymously lust after you...

oops did I just say that out loud?

Mommy Lisa said...

That is funny

Annette Lyon said...

I would have commented anyway, but now it looks like I'm doing it just to delurkify. (I'm claiming that as a word in spite of the red squiggles.)

Saimi said...

You're stuck with me. I can't NOT comment, if I read a blog, I'm compelled to comment it's my nature..Like I ALWAYS have something to say whether it be good or bad I can't shut up..see, I'm babbling already!

Z said...

I'm here. I just don't have anything to say. ... Wait. What is the difference between lurkers and stalker again?

Michelle said...

De-lurking for your pleasure. Well not really, I'm new here and wanted to say hi but we can just pretend I've been lurking for weeks now if you want.

"Their" logo scares me a little

does B'zillion get underlined too?

Anonymous said...

and what if you only get a B'zillion, and not a B'zillion and 3 (is there something extra special about those last 3?)

wv: uncol (is that like it's un cool to lurk, or "uncol, uncol, when you're getting your arm twisted?)

Are you laughing yet?

I think this might really mess up your end of the year stats when you are tyring to figure out how many comments you get, and for what reason.

Anonymous said...

Okay, I'll leave your comment box alone now! Don't stop writing, I enjoy your blog too much!

MommyJ said...

I'm not anonymous. I'm here. I love it here. And I'm proud to say it.

Michelle said...

Anonymous made me laugh. Please come out of hiding. I love to comment on other blogs because I love and want comments, why wouldn't they? It is sad we need to tell people to delurk.

Cluttered Brain said...

LOL. Wow!
You always beat me at comments ya know that T?
Gee whiz. What's your secret?
lol.

I'm a commenter and a lurker...
i LOVE the anony comments. did you guess who it is yet?
Sounds like Shelle....bwahahaha. Even tho she commented first...she si a sneaky one....

Lisa said...

I didn't know there was a National movement. I'm just happy to have finally reached the 100 mark. Low expectations, really, especially when I see blogs for girls taking pictures of themselves in skinny jeans, working into their 3000's. Whatever. I love your blog, and you're funny as hell, so I'm going to keep commenting. Lurk free.

When I did a blog on how much I adore getting comments you went out of your way to be helpful and commented five times (I just got my blog printed and so I could easily check). It was over a three day span. Does that mean that to prove I love you just as much I should comment at least five times on yours? This is long enough does it count as two?

Gwen said...

Here I am, quietly in the back, loving your blog.

Missy said...

I love to lurke...

Gina said...

I'm sure I don't count as a lurker, but I am willing to comment just so that you can get closer to your "billion and three" comment goal :)

Teachinfourth said...

I don't lurk...

Just to let you know that I'm still around.

Victoria said...

:) sorry, i know de-lurking day is over, but i'm finally commenting! I read your post before midnite.... But, like always, I kept running from the comment section! I sometimes {no, most times!} feel like I'm a stalker {is that the same as a lurker?} when I'm out blog-hopping....
So glad that I ran into yours today! I'll be watching you! {and following, too!} thanx for some great posts!

Sher said...

Here I am again! Just lurking around waiting to hear what you have to say next.

The Empress said...

This is what I found out. LOTS of people read, but cant comment, when they read on their smartphones iphones coolphones SO...lots are reading, just can't comment.

So, think on that. Not lurkers but just not enabled commenters.

See, you prolly have about 100 unenabled commenters.

Pretty cool, huh?

Lurkers rule!!!

Megz said...

thanks for not forcing the lurks to declare themselves. I lurk on several blogs and what fun would it be if I was guilted into letting them know I was there?

Sher said...

Have you broken your comment record yet? The comments you make about the comments count in my book.
