Delurking Day 2009!

It’s that time of year again! Started by someone randomly, reorganized by Rude Cactus last year, logoed by moi, emailed around to 50 billion people… and VOILA!

The Official Delurking Day.

What does that mean exactly? First, it means I have a flasher exposing himself on my site. THEN, it means you comment here, and on other blogs you read regularly, even if you have never done so before to JUST SAY HI. Or whatever you feel like saying. If you are a blogger, you put up a Delurking Day post of your own. As for me, it means I have a day off from writing anything meaningful. WOOT!

Seriously. You all are the best and I love hearing from you, so please do say hi. Mucho blog love to you all. Happy Delurking Day.

P.S. Photos from the conference a.k.a. the non singing parts of Chicks Who Click are up on my Flickrstream!

    Hmm, I don’t think I’ve ever commented here before – I’m a relatively new reader – so I’ll just go ahead and officially de-lurk with this comment!

    Now I’m off to steal the logo and do a De-lurking Day post on my own blog, I had nothing to write about today anyway!

  84. notterriblyordinary

    Pretty sure a one-liner counts as a delurk. 🙂

  85. Zeynep

    Hi from Istanbul!

  86. Denise

    So glad you are doing this! Um, hi!

  87. Franklin5

    In my time zone, anyway, Delurking Day has drawn to a close… but considering that I’m still awake, I’m gonna go ahead and jump on the delurking bandwagon. So, y’know, HI.

  88. Grey Street Girl

    Helloooooooo! (said in Winnie the Pooh voice)

    Happy Monday to you, Aimee!

  89. Chief Nut Reisie

    Complete lurker here from the deepest darkest African continent! Have been following your blog for longer than I can remember. Love your photographs 🙂

  90. Karen

    Hallo! I just wanted to play too!

  91. lefruitlady

    Why must delurking day fall on a day when I just feel like lurking?

  92. lizzledinwizzle

    Hi. I’ll delurk since the logo is so cute.

  93. Rachael

    Hi Aimee! I’m a sometimes lurker, but try to comment when I have something intelligent to say, which is not always that often since I have Mommy Brain!

  94. Anonymous

    I’m a lurker… guilty as charged.


  95. Anonymous

    Happy to say hi finally – Angie.

  96. Bunny

    Hey! I’m here and lurking!

  97. Betzography

    I’m a day late and a dollar short. Actually I’m just short in real life but hey.

    This delurking day thing is rather cool. I’ve penned it into the vault of “blog musts” so I’m prepared for next year. Hope you enjoyed your day off from writing!

    I’m sure it was spent photograhing the Poemiester. 🙂

  98. jenny

    does an old friend count as a lurker?

  99. Kristy - Where's My Damn Answer

    I don’t think I can be classified as a lurker if I do comment occasionally on your posts AND Twitter … can I?

    I bet we have LOTS of lurkers :: rolling eyes :: 😉

  100. Oz

    Happy late delurking day!

  101. Andi

    i am way late – but HI!

  102. Charlie Hills

    Aw! I missed it delurking day! Well, better late than never. And why am I here at all? Because I just had to know what a Greeblemonkey was…
