I know that there are “official” delurking days, but I don’t think I have the patience to wait for one. (Besides, it seems like exactly the kind of thing that I would miss when it happens.) So I’ve decided to hold one of my own — today is “official delurking day” at Fawnahareo’s Place!
Maybe you don’t know what a lurker is. A lurker is someone who waltzes in, reads the news, and runs off again without saying so much as a peep. (Yeah you! The one behind the potted plant! That’s right, I’m talkin’ ’bout you.) I’m happy to have you visit, of course. I love it that you stop by, and you are under no obligation to comment when you do. But I LOVE comments! And besides, I’m curious about you.
This wee blog here gets an average of 150 visits a day, but the average number of comments per post is more like three or four; I don’t even have to break a sweat doing that math. I can tell that there must be some of you out there who aren’t saying hello. (Aha! I just spotted another one back there behind the couch.)
I understand the no commenting, I do! In the craziness of the last few months, I have had to curtail my commenting because I really need to sleep more than an hour every night. But, just ’cause I feel like it, today’s the day to take a minute and leave me some comment love, dear readers. If you have a blog, I promise I will come visit and do the same for you! (It might take me a few days, but I’ll be there!)
Just to make things more fun, I’ve decided this is a good time to have my first ever giveaway! All you have to do is leave a comment, and you’ll be entered to win a prize. What’s the prize? Well, some time ago, I came into possession of a comedy that was already in our movie collection. Everyone enjoys a good comedy right? So if you win, the movie is yours, plus I’ll throw in a little extra “made in Yukon” surprise.
And to make things even easier, I’ll even give you something to comment about. Here’s what I wanna know:
- How did you first find my blog?
- What kinds of posts do you like to read? (Family updates, Yukon lifestyle, music, pregnancy progress…)
- Are you a blogger? (And if you are, leave me a link, of course!)
Be sure to leave a valid e-mail address so that I can contact you if you win. Anyone who comments by next Wednesday, September the 3rd is in the game. Regular commenters are welcome to participate, too, of course!
So, what are you waiting for? Let me hear from you!
