I was poking around on some of our posts from a couple of years ago and noticed that some of our wonderful regular readers then, with regular blogs then, stopped their blogs sometime in 2011 or 2012, and a few of them have disappeared entirely. (We miss you guys!)
Our blog readership has dramatically increased since those days, yet our regular commenters seem to have diminished in number. We wonder if some of that might be because we’re established now and people who aren’t yet regulars feel like they’re outsiders and aren’t ready to join. Our regular commenters are pretty amazing, it is true, and that might be intimidating.
So, in the interest of increasing conversation, we’re declaring this Grumpy Rumblings Delurking Day.
If you’re a reader of ours but not a regular commenter, say hi, and, if you like, tell us a little about yourself. If that’s intimidating, then tell us what you like about our blog or what you’d like to see more of. If that seems self-serving on our parts, then just say hi (and we’ll understand)!
If the problem is thinking up a screen name, we recommend choosing a type of cat. Here’s a list, though you may of course choose something else.
There’s no captcha code, so delurk now!
