Today is Love our Lurkers Day organised by Bonnie over at My Bottom Smarts.
I was a lurker for a long time before I finally plucked up the courage to start my own blog and comment on others. When we started our Dd/ttwd journey I gained a lot from reading other blogs. I knew I was not alone and that others were going through the exact same things I was and it gave me great encouragement. I also learnt a great deal from those a little further along on their journey than us.
However, that did not compare to the incredible friendship, support and advice I have gained from fellow bloggers since I finally 'bit the bullet' and started this blog and commenting on others. I only wish I had de-lurked earlier.
I remember the first time I made a comment on a blog. It was with great trepidation. Will my comment make me look silly? What will she think of me? Will she reply? To my surprise, the blogger did reply and was extremely warm and welcoming.
I appreciate everyone who visits, even if you don't leave a comment and make yourself known.
If you are someone who reads but never comments, today I extend a hearty welcome and invite you to say hi.
Don't know what to say? Just a simple hi or I was here will do. Of course, please feel free to share anything you want to with me. After all, if you have been lurking here for a while you know a lot more about me than I know about you!
Of course, if you've been lurking here for a while then you probably also know that I can be a bit ... um ... Scrappy. Don't let that put you off. I promise I won't bark or bite :)
Go on, you know you want to! Don't by shy. You Don't need a blogger account or ID. You can simply use the anonymous option if you wish.
