It’s been a while since I’ve called for any sort of delurking here. I’m going to go ahead and ask for those of you lurking to consider delurking here on this post with the following explanation.
If you read The Modern Gal blog and feel comfortable delurking, then I would like to read your blog or Twitter as well. Even though I write mainly for myself, I like to know what’s going on in the world of the folks who feel compelled to read, so that in a sense we have a giant blog conversation going on — whether or not you feel the urge to comment here. Often times, ideas for my own blog posts are sparked by something I read on someone else’s blog, so when I write it’s like my blog is talking to your blog. That sounds silly, but I presume it makes sense?
Also, I realize it’s probably time to updated the ol’ blogroll (are blogrolls still a thing? do people look at them?), and there are quite a few defunct blogs on my ‘roll. I like for the ‘roll (and my Google reader) to accurately reflect my blog community, so I’d love for you to share your URLs.
BUT, if you feel most comfortable lurking, that’s fine too. I understand — despite being an active blogger who likes the community aspect, I lurk on some blogs and don’t feel comfortable revealing myself as a reader. Totally fine, and I’m still glad you’re here.
If you’re commenting for the first time I will have to approve your comment, so don’t fret if your comment doesn’t appear immediately. Once you’ve commented once, though, you’re in and your comments will automatically post.
