Love Our Lurkers day!

October 21st was International Fisting Day. Not really my thing, so I couldn’t get all excited about it.

However, today is Love Our Lurkers (LOL) day for bloggers. Now THAT’S something I can get behind!

It was started by Bonnie who said this:

On Thursday, November 10, many spanking, DD, and Ds bloggers will publish posts where they invite their readers to comment. Any reader, even first timers, are welcome to participate, but the people we really hope to hear from are our beloved lurkers. A lurker is a regular reader who doesn’t comment or otherwise let their presence be known. As most bloggers know, lurkers represent the majority of our readership.

Apparently some blogs will be offering prizes (?!), but I am, of course, much more rubbisher than them, also cheap and disorganised.

Be that as it may, I would love to hear from you, quiet readers who don’t comment. I know you are out there… just a little ‘hello’ wave would be lovely. I will slide over on the bench here and you can come and sit beside me *pat pat*.

*coos at the pretty lurkers and waves* Hello there!!

Edited to add: Wow, so many other LOLers!!  I’m obviously not the only one who wants to give their lurkers some love!

    Shouldn’t that read …but I am, of course, far more rubbisher than them, also cheap and disorganised…?

    That’s what we was teached.

    *laugh* You are so right! I was teached wrongerer than you.

  3. Oh man – Ferns and Hedone in one spot? The both of you are like, you know, my biggest internet crushes right now.

    Now I'm going to have a long, long shower while I have some new fant… er, thoughts about work. Yeah, that's it.

  4. Tilly you can just relurk again until next year if you prefer to slink off to the shadows of lurkland.

    Neither a lurker nor pretty here.

    Oh wait I can be pretty! *Fussily does hair and makeup* THERE! Pretty non-lurker.

  5. I am a die hard lurker. I just began writing My own bloggity-blawg recently due to your insanely inspirational jottings. I've laughed, I've cried…
    I do however understand the importance of feedback from readers, now that I have My own scrawlings to pimp to the masses.

    cheers!

    *wave wave wave*

  6. H: “Hahaha…yeah I'm not all that into fisting either, though I've never tried it.”

    I haven't either, and I never say never, but I'm not so much a 'more and bigger!' sort. I've read some amazing accounts of fisting, so I can understand the appeal of it, but it hasn't yet done that thing where it squirrels into my head and keeps tugging away at me.

    “What a beautiful blog you have! I am new here. I came for “My Bottom Smarts” blog.”

    Thank you for the compliment and for the comment! And welcome!

    “I invite you to visit my blog here: The Pleasure Principle”

    I will, I look forward to it.

    Pass over that steel brush, I'll scrub your back for you Tom… see how good I am to you?!

  8. yes, me thinks, I qualify as a lurker!
    btw. love love love fisting! receiving and giving (don't do to others…. and so on – just think that doesn't necessarily apply to bdsm) :P

    now, that's enough posted for a lurker for about one year. see you next year then ;)
    and keep the brilliant work up!
    cheers!

  9. Tilly: “I've commented maybe…oh…once before, so I think I still count as a lurker!”

    A semi-lurker!? A lurkette? Thank you for delurking again, and hello again, Tilly! Thank you for your re-delurk.

    “Am I now de-lurked?”

    Yes, you are now delurked and defrocked from your relurkerness after your previous delurking (wow, this gets complicated!).

    “Does this mean I cannot comment next year?”

    Ha! And no! It means that you have now committed to continuous commenting and shall be chased down by the delurking police if you don't abide by the delurker rules of engagement!

  10. Twoo Domina: “Tilly you can just relurk again until next year if you prefer to slink off to the shadows of lurkland.”

    You *know* the delurking police will come after you for this heresy!! THEY KNOW WHERE YOU LIVE!

    “Oh wait I can be pretty! *Fussily does hair and makeup* THERE! Pretty non-lurker.”

    *laugh… wave* Hello pretty! *wipes drool* Sorry about that, and thank you for not lurking!

  11. Anonymous: “guess I am a lurker….hi”

    You are! But not anymore… hi to you too, dear anonymous, and thank you so much for peeking out and saying hello!

  12. FaeryVixen: “I am a die hard lurker.”

    They should make a movie called that! Then “Die Hard Lurker With a Vengeance”!

    Hello FaeryVixen and thank you for saying hello! *waves*

    “I just began writing My own bloggity-blawg recently due to your insanely inspirational jottings. I've laughed, I've cried…”

    Yay! Welcome to the blogosphere (and thank you for 'insanely inspirational' which has me smiling stupidly). I shall go and investigate forthwith!

    “I do however understand the importance of feedback from readers, now that I have My own scrawlings to pimp to the masses.”

    *nod nod* I love knowing that there are readers (duh!), but I do love love love (three times!) hearing what people are thinking and having a little chat with them. The dialogue is wonderful for me.

    But being a serial lurker myself, I completely understand just reading quietly and not actually having anything to *say* about it even if I really enjoyed it.

    I did have a reader send me a note once saying that 'nice porn!' was not a comment he felt comfortable leaving on a post… heh. Fair call.

  13. Anonymous m: “yes, me thinks, I qualify as a lurker!”

    Hello m! You are overqualified if you have visited more than a few times, and thank you for delurking to say hello *big smile*

    “btw. love love love fisting! receiving and giving”

    Glad to hear it–I have read some really amazing accounts of it! Did you do something special for International Fisting Day? Like… um… some fisting?!

    “now, that's enough posted for a lurker for about one year. see you next year then”

    Yes yes… I don't want you to strain something! Thank you so much for popping your head up to say hello, m!

    “and keep the brilliant work up!”

    I will surely try, I will. But if I don't, you will have to delurk again to tell me so… win-win!

  14. Candice: “I de-lurked too soon!”

    No no… not to soon at all!! Hello Candice, thank you so much for coming to sit out here in the sunlight with me! It is warm, no? We should have ice cream!

    “It still counts, right?”

    Yes, of course! I mean… no, no it doesn't. You will have to delurk again tomorrow… and maybe the next day also (you know, to make up for the too-soon-ness of the first one…).

  15. Ferns: “I can understand the appeal of it, but it hasn't yet done that thing where it squirrels into my head and keeps tugging away at me.”

    I don't claim to be an expert, but I'm pretty sure fisting usually involves squirreling into… well, not your head, that's for sure. If you're having trouble figuring it out, I'm sure there are no shortage of would be volunteers willing to give you a hand. (or willing for to you to give a hand to?)

  16. Peroxide: “I don't claim to be an expert, but I'm pretty sure fisting usually involves squirreling into… well, not your head, that's for sure.”

    Wait… are you trying to tell me that it doesn't involve shoving a squirrel in your ear?! Come on! Now you are just being ignorant! Seriously, do some research, Peroxide, before spouting your ignorance all over the place! *massive brain-hurty eyeroll*

  17. Sorta-kinda-semi Lurker saying hello once again.

    Well, more simply quiet, but yea! *sips tea*
    I always enjoy reading and keeping up with your blog, as well as the comments below!

    But yes, I'l go back to being shushy like normal. *smile*

  18. The Rabbit: “Sorta-kinda-semi Lurker saying hello once again.”

    Hello there little bunny! Thank you for the non-shushy delurk, it is nice to know that you are still peeking in my windows…

  19. I lurk about once a month. Does that count? I save up your posts and come in and read them all at once. It's like saving chocolate until you really need it instead of eating it each day. Then it's that much more special and gives you a bit of a high. That is also why I am posting this kinda late. See you next month.

  20. Eowyn: “I lurk about once a month. Does that count?”

    Yes, that absolutely counts!!!

    “It's like saving chocolate until you really need it instead of eating it each day. Then it's that much more special and gives you a bit of a high.”

    That is so lovely! I like being chocolate. The quality kind of course…

    Thank you so much for delurking. I look forward to your eyes on me next month. I will try and make it worth your while.

    Ferns
