Time to Delurk
I haven’t ever done this before. Krush often gives a shout out to call out some of the folks who are reading so she knows there’s still an audience, but I generally don’t bother. The way I look at it, I pretty much know who’s reading, or else I don’t really care, since it’s mostly just for me, anyway. (Or else, I incessantly send you links and MAKE you visit my silly blog, eh?) I don’t have a ton of readers, and mostly, I am pretty good at stalking my own blog well enough to know who’s here and who isn’t (based on where ya came in from, where you’re physically at, what times you’re browsing in at, and sometimes what browser you’re using) but there are occasionally “mystery” viewers, so it’ll be interesting to see who (if anyone) pops by and gives a shout out.
It’s funny, years ago I had several dozen regular visitors. Now I’d say I have maybe a dozen. I’m not sure how I feel about that. I certainly have written less and less as the years have gone by, but it never occurred to me that the quality has diminished all that much until this past December when I went through the year and realized… none of it was anything I’d mark as “greatest hits”. Not even close. Though, honestly, that isn’t why I’ve lost readership. The real reason is that I’ve stopped reading other blogs, so others have stopped reading me. That’s honestly okay. Life moves on.
Anyway, if ya are reading this, leave a comment. Say hi. Tell me whatcha wanna read here. Leave a link back to YOUR blog. Let it all hang out, it’s cool, we’re all friends. Or not. (Scary….)

I get an email from a group of bloggers telling me its “delurking day” so I put up a post…I do my blog mainly for me, but sometimes it is nice to know someone / anyone is still reading.
PS—Soxy pictures are up per your request.

Hi Liberty! I’m here too! (delurking) I’ve been reading… well, it’s been a while!
Thank you for commenting on my blog, I appreciate it.

I still read you. Only comment though if I have something to say. I agree less blogs you read means less comments on your blog. I always try to hit the ones who hit me but I have a ton on my reader that I check from time to time.
