A blog is a personal diary. A daily pulpit. A collaborative space. A political soapbox. A breaking-news outlet. A collection of links. Your own private thoughts. Memos to the world.

To all the Lurkers.

I was just thinking:

I have somewhere in the vicinity of 80-100 people reading my blog in a day. Many of them are lurkers :-)....some are friends and family, some are referred from other's blogs, or from google. 

Regardless, I don't get a lot of comments (which is really, truly ok), at least in this space. 

But, I would love to meet you all (just this once ;-) ), then you can go back to lurkdom. 

So to prompt you all out, I thought I would open the floor to you all. You can ask questions, comment: in fact whatever comes to mind. Well, as long as it isn't selling Viagra. That would be not be very useful. Sorry :-S. 

So ask and comment away. I will reply and comment right back at you in my next post.

Jo :-)

Hi Jo, I'll delurk to say hello from England. I've only just found your blog so am hopping around your archives at the moment. I found you from the FJ website. I am a 35 year old Christian, married to my husband of 15 years and have a 9 year old daughter. I look forward to reading more about you.

Yo. From New York. Back to lurking. A creature comfort.

Sometimes when we don't respond to comments, people believe that the poster doesn't care for what's being said. It's my experience that engaging people in dialogue creates relationship, which is what people are looking for on-line: a substitute for human contact.

I'm lurking :-)

Delurking here from CA. I've been following you for a while now, but I totally suck at commenting. I'm not even sure how I found you exactly, but I am glad I did. Hugs!

Hello Jo! I really enjoy your blog; I keep you bookmarked and check in every few days. You have a wonderful voice and it makes a difference in my life to read about your stories and your experience. Oh, I'm in Boston, MA, 37, female, work in publishing. Back to the shadows from whence I lurked...

I'm glad you are getting delurkers. :) Comments are nice, even if they aren't the only reason we blog. :) BTW, so nice to meet you, I'm glad we ended up both commenting on Laura's facebook this morning. :)

Hello! I'm a lurker from Tennessee. I am having issues with my religion (or lack there of I guess), so I always enjoy reading blogs of people who I can relate to. Keep up the great blogging!
