She has dubbed this week "Delurking Week". In honor of Thanksgiving tomorrow, we would like to join her in thanking our readers and commenters and encouraging lurkers to come out and say something!
I was on chat with a fellow blogger last night, discussing how it can get really discouraging to be blogging regularly and feel as if you're either (a) shouting into a void or (b) doing this just for vanity's sake. The two are,of course, intricately connected.
It's important that we bloggers and you readers remember on occasion to appreciate EACH OTHER. I can't believe the number of readers I have, people I've NEVER met, you guys are an absolute miracle to me. And I'd like to get to know you BETTER, but I can't if you never comment.
[...] I am just getting to the point where I don't understand why someone would read a blog and either feel afraid of commenting or feel that there is some barrier to doing so. I'm not bitching about it, I truly am grateful and amazed by every hit. But if I'm doing something that stops them from adding their two cents at my own blog, I want to change my behavior and be more welcoming.
Thank you so much to everyone who reads Evil Slutopia - whether you comment or not, but especially if you do. We are more grateful than words can say. These past three years have been a lot of fun and a lot of hard work, but we wouldn't trade it for anything. Well, maybe for a lucrative book deal with film options... but don't worry we're not selling out just yet.
Please, do consider leaving a comment on one of our blog entries that sparked some sort of opinion or reaction... we would love to hear what you think! Or you can just comment on this blog and say hello! Happy Thanksgiving and Happy Eid al-Adha!
Looking forward to hearing from you!
