The topic of today’s blog entry will be Lurking: why it is not okay, and what needs to be done about it.
A Lurker is someone who reads a blog, but does not comment. This is frustrating for the blogger because they do not know exactly who their audience is. Great Aunt Imelda might read on a daily basis, but if that old crone doesn’t comment, how will the blogger know that she is reading, and avoid recounting that embarrassing story involving Old Aunt Immy and the turkey baster from Thanksgiving, 1981. Am I making any sense so far? Questions? Good.
There was a breach in security yesterday that could have been disastrous. The RedCouch Disaster Team was on it, however, and the Terror Alert level has been lowered to a cautious yellow.
I know that I have a pretty wide range of readers: other bloggers that I haven’t met, ex-coworkers, friends and family. I think I have a pretty good idea of who reads, but maybe I am wrong. I have no idea.
Now for today’s assignment. I would like each and every one of you to take a moment and comment on this here post. Even those readers I already know about, its nice to hear from you too. Thank you for your cooperation. Blog dismissed.
