Blurker amnesty day

This post has been totally ripped-off from Tib:

I hereby proclaim that September 22nd, 2008 shall be Blurker Amnesty Day. You are probably saying to yourself - "Self, what is Blurker Amnesty Day?" Well this is the day that all blurkers can (and hopefully will) comment and make their presence known without penalty. You may even be saying to yourself - "Self, what is a blurker?" To answer you again, oh inquisitive one - a blurker is a blog lurker. Someone who reads a blog but never posts any comments. So my unobtrusive friend - I am calling you out. In exchange for your comment, you have my solemn promise that I will not stalk you or request a comment from you in the future. Amnesty. In case you are saying to yourself - "Self, how do I comment on a blog?" Well, I can answer that as well. Simply click on the area that says X # of people had something to say. You will see a comment box pop up. If you are signed into blogger then you can type your comment and click submit. If you don't have a google account then type your comment and make sure to include your name and perhaps your location (so I know who you are) and select anonymous. Then click submit. It is just that easy! I am not upset that I have blurkers - it doesn't creep me out in the least. I am curious who you are - I crave the human interaction - I can only squeeze so much engaging chatter out of the little ones. Trust me I squeeze them all too much. I am just interested in who is out there. Reading. And not commenting. And to my fellow bloggers, feel free to declare amnesty for your blurkers on this special day as well. Of course you can borrow the logo. Consider it a gift. And I would love to hear if you brought some blurkers out of hiding!

Hello! My name is Jessika and I read you from Mexico City, MEXICO. I never comment because it's kind of difficult for me to write fluently in English, but I love to read you and would love to comment more often. I'm also a mom of two, a 2 year old boy and a 5 month old baby girl. =)

Ok, ok, I'll admit, I'm a blurker. I followed you over from TLOL and enjoy reading about your girls. My name's Shavahn and I recently moved to College Station, Tx.

I'm a blurker, also following from TLOL. I'm from KS but recently moved to Utah, so I'm always interested to hear about different trails and running events you're participating in.

Hi, I'm a blurker in Lehi. I also have two girls; mine are 7 and 3. I may have commented once on your blog, but mostly I just read. I started reading the TTC after Miscarriage board at TLOL, then following the pregnancy boards when I became pregnant with my second. I linked to your blog from Pithydithy (she has excellent taste in blogs!) and have enjoyed reading about you and your family ever since.

Hi, I am a former TLOLer, too. I live in Maine and have one daughter, 6 next month. I can't seem to get beyond 5K so I like to read about your running.

So....okay, I'm a blurker too. I'm Karry from Hamilton, Ontario, Canada and I followed you from TLOL too. I have 2 boys - a 5 year old and a 1 year old and I love reading about your family!

I comment, but not nearly as often as I think "oh, what a great entry!"

MollyD said...

I'm a blurker too! I followed you from TLOL and have been reading ever since. I think it's great that you took up running. My brother was a pacer for a friend of his the other night. His friend had 36 hours to run 100 miles. Crazy stuff! Oh and your cute are adorable. And smart!

MollyD said...

That last comment should have been "your girls are adorable".

I have read your blog/journal for a few years and am a confessed blurker. I have commented before because I find your blog really compelling. Sometimes I am in total agreeance sometimes not (in which case I don't comment, none of my business) but you are ALWAYS honest which I think is awesome! I am a mom to three and live in Wisconsin. Love your blog!

Add me to the list!! From the back in the day TLOL days.

Holly said...

Im not a blurker, but it sounded fun to pretend.

Seriously, I laughed at your day 1 of Hell, because its TRUE. I need to join S.A or something.

Omgirl said...

Holy Blurkers, batman! I'm completely jealous.

LC said...

Better late than never! I know I've commented over on your TLOL journal but not sure if I ever have here though I read both. I'm so impressed with your running and think you have a beautiful family. Totally love your playlist too:) Take care- Leslie (LC from TLOL)
