Today in the blogosphere we celebrate Delurker Day—a day when us bloggers drop all sense of dignity and beg for all of you silent readers to come out from behind your electronic facades and alert us to your presence by leaving a comment.
I started this blog in order to create a record of my kids’ lives and so that my family and friends always had the ability to check in on the Geek Boy clan. I never gave much thought about who else would be reading it. But somehow, I've amassed a small but stable readership. It's been surprising and flattering how it's grown, especially this past year.
Sincere thanks to all of you who keep coming back to read my insanity. That said…comments are like crack for us bloggers. Once we get a taste of audience feedback, we crave more. And I'm jonesing here, man!
The most comments I have received on a post (discounting my replies) was for this one that got 19. My Delurker Day wish is to break that record. Help me make my dream come true!
Seriously comment or no comment, with all of the vast amount of options in the world to occupy your time, I'm truly touched that you choose to spend some of it with me.
Oh and if you're looking for a post where my pride is intact, check out Venus vs. Mars where I'm debating the merits of being emotionally invested in your relationship.
