It has just been brought to my attention that today is National De-Lurking day!
What is that you might ask?
It's when all of the people who lurk (read but don't comment) are encouraged to leave a comment.
Last year on this day, I had some of the best comments ever!
I also used my stat counter to get information to call out one of my readers who never commented. (I may have mentioned where they lived and their occupation) They commented, but have never been back.
To this person, I apologize, I didn't mean to drive you away. (not that they will see this, because as mentioned before, they haven't been back) (sigh)
Last year was so fun because I encouraged everyone to leave a comment as their favorite famous person! (Mostly so it would look like famous people were reading my blog)
I also suggested that if you couldn't think of anything to say, to just leave a really random comment such as......
"The moldy bird flies at midnight"
"Purple porcupines with rabies attack me in my sleep!"
"Target hates me!!"
Some of my favorite comments were;
Sarah Palin said...
WOW! You are amazingly funny! Your so lucky you have such creative kids. The crazy imagination leads to wonderful stories and memories. ~~~~In the 1800's, 'pants' was a dirty word in England
Barack Obama said...
I wanted to say that you have a fine blog, a bold blog, that tells the world what fine people Americans are. You are an outstanding example of the kind of person we should all seek to be. This is why I'm giving you my Nobel Peace Prize. You are that important.
George of the Jungle said...
You make me laugh. Max makes me laugh more.---It is against the law in Georgia to tie a giraffe to a telephone pole. So what am I supposed to tie the giraffe to, I ask you?
Anderson Cooper said...
The dolphin is in the washing machine, I repeat, the dolphin is in the washing machine.
To whoever left that Anderson Cooper comment, just so you know, "The dolphin is in the washing machine" has become a favorite phrase at our house.
What can I say, we're a little strange around here.
Back to the whole de-lurking thing, leave a random comment as your favorite (or least favorite) famous person.
