Apparently this past January 14th was Delurking Day, and although I'm only getting around to it now (at least it's still January), I'd still like to openly invite my readers to say hi or leave a comment below. As a recovering blog lurker myself, I now see the value in coming out of the virtual woodwork and tipping my metaphorical hat to the great blog writers out there... you know, with words, rather than silently in my head! As a result, I've become much more active in regularly commenting on other sites. If you have a blog of your own, leaving a comment is a great way to bring in more traffic. On the flip side, it's also really helpful for blog writers to find out who their audience is, and I think I speak for most of us when I say we really appreciate our readers and would love a chance to say thank you!
Don't be shy, and please don't let a lack of something witty to remark on prevent you from leaving a comment! I get excited every time I get one, and I appreciate the extra time you take to write a few words after reading what I have to say. After all, a good discussion is one of the best ways to share ideas!
Thanks to The Mindful Merchant for encouraging me to try this out (and for letting me copy over the badge). It should go without saying... check out her blog!
