Do You Know What Day it Is?

delurkingday2009That’s right. Today is national delurking day!

(I know because Chris told me so. I think he might actually be in charge of the internet but I’m not sure.)

A lurker is one who reads a blog but does not comment.

What this means for you is that if you are reading this I expect you to leave a comment even if it is just this once to let me know that you are out there and that I am not just talking to myself.

Which is what my mother has suspected all along.

I want you to say hi if it is the first comment you have ever left on a blog or if you comment on my site every day. Show yourselves. Please. (This includes you people who read in a feed reader. I know, I publish my entire feed so you don’t have to but click over and say hi. It won’t kill you.)

You don’t have to be clever. You can just say hi. You can tell me what your favorite color is or your birthday or your favorite song by The Beatles.




Thanks to Chris and Aimee for the button.

  1. Hello…

    My name is Paula and I’m a lurker. Is there some sort of 12 step program for us? Oh and my favorite color is purple, and my birthday is December 31 and if anyone knows of a legal way to “move” your birthday – I’m listening.

  2. I’m not just commenting, I’m wearing a trench coat and flashing you.

  3. Bonjour from the south of France!
    Birthday – 18 May
    Favourite colour – yellow
    Favourite Beatles song – tough one, but probably “While my guitar gently weeps”

  4. Hi!
    Favorite Beatles Song: Hey Jude.

  5. Delurking to say hi.
    My favorite color is purple. :)

  6. Hi Sarah! Revolution 9.

  7. No. You can’t make me comment. I won’t. So there!

  8. Wow! Jealous. 500 hits on my site today and only one comment. I think I’ll delay my delurking day and announce tomorrow.

  9. I’m not cool enough to blog myself, but I read extensively.

    And I totally admire your devotion to football…what you are to football, I am to baseball. But I love football too…

    And we share an alma mater!

  10. My birthday is February 11th. My feet are currently freezing. My favorite Beatles song is Ob La Di. There are so many to love, but that one really cheers me up.

  11. Hi! My favorite color is green and at the risk of causing an uprising, I’m not all that big a Beatles fan.

    My favorite Stones’ songs are Wild Horses and Under My Thumb. Still get credit?!?

    Happy Delurking Day. 😉

  12. My favorite color? Pink

    I actually went to see Paul McCartney in concert back in 2001. It was AMAZING.

  13. Happy Delurking Day!!

  14. Thanks for the tip. I mentioned how you turned me on.

  15. Delurking to say hi and tell you that I’m here and I read you everyday!

  16. Hi! Love ya and read often.

  17. Long time lurker first time commenter!
    I have enjoyed reading about you and your family. Thanks for keeping me entertained!

  18. Hi. I am commenting because you told me to and I am a rule follower. OK so I am also a liar. Is it called delurking day because “coming out day” was already taken? LOL

  19. Hi – I love your stories of the goon squad, always puts a smile on my face. Am I done delurking now?

  20. Hi Tiffer. I’m here.

  21. I’m possibly delurking, as I don’t remember if I’ve ever commented here. I’ve been reading for quite awhile and I love your blog!

    So Hi. Blue. Not a Beatles fan (I know, I know).

  22. Hi. Lately, my favorite color is brown.

  23. Hi Sarah.

  24. I totally missed it this year on my blog. Oh well. I’m delurking here, not that I’m a lurker.

  25. Hi, I’m from NZ, and my favourite colour is pink. Fav Beatles song is With a Little Help from my Friends.

  26. I only very very rarely really know what day it is.

  27. Not sure how I found your blog many moons ago….but I read it. You make me laugh :) Thanks.

  28. Copied this from you. Saw it on your Facebook. I just put it on mine. Why am I always a day behind???

  29. I’m always here, even if I am quiet most of the time.

  30. Cold Play fan? I didn’t know there was such a thing

  31. Haven’t commented in forever…. so, “comment”. :-)


  32. hi there. I haven’t commented since you asked some really random set of questions this one time a long time ago. (That was SO SPECIFIC so I bet you know EXACTLY who I am now)

  33. Your Mother says:

    Sarah – However did you manage to reply to yourself from 132 other e-mail accounts???

  34. happiness is a warm gun.
    best. beatles. song.

    even though i’m not a lurker..

  35. I read frequently but comment rarely.

  36. Thank you for reminding me that it’s time for my annual comment on your blog. :)

  37. A day late as usual, but still reading! Hi!

  38. hi Sarah!

    My favourite colour is green, my birthday is the 1st January and my favourite beatles tune is Norweigan wood.

  39. Son of a BITCH, I missed it. This was my chance to actually get a few comments. God I SUCK.

    But you, Dear Sarah, are the bees knees.

  40. Dang, I missed it! :)

  41. Let it Be or Sexy Sadie come to mind.

  42. Tamie from Tampa says:

    Hi Sarah- I am a lurker from Tampa. Not sure if you remember me or my twins (Brady and Katie) from the MOM’s club in Tampa. I have been reading you for awhile now- gives me a smile and also some insight as to what could be coming soon for me. Hope you are doing well!

  43. I’m going to officially *start* lurking now. I’ve popped in before, but I’m setting up camp with mah trench coat now;)

  44. Oh crap. I leave the internet for a few days and all the important things happen. Anyway, hi!

  45. I can’t believe I missed delurking day. I love delurking day. I may have to do a belated day just for myself.

  46. Hey, Thanks for delurking so I could expand my lurking.
    Fun blog.
    I’ll be back!

  47. Hey, I read your blog. I’m a little late telling you because I’m a big procrastinator, but I think you knew anyway. I’ve commented before.

    I think you’re totally funny and on my list of bloggers to woo should my love affair with Karly at Wiping Up Snot ever go sour.

  48. pork with bones says:

    A week late. Does this still count? Hope so, or I’m wearing my thumbs out por nada.
