BLOGGING THOUGHTS

It’s Delurker Day!

28 Comments 3093 views

It's Delurker Day!  2011I’m not sure where it originated, if anyone does PLEASE leave a comment, I’d love to know! It’s a fabulous idea I saw on MomToTheScreamingMasses but I’d like to give credit where credit is due. I’m not even sure who made the graphic!

Anyway, here’s a thing you need to know about bloggers…. we LOVE comments. We really do. It let’s us know that all the hard work is worth it. That there are actually other human beings reading our words and not just spam bots. Most importantly, it reassures us that what we are writing and sharing online is in some way helpful/interesting/entertaining/intriguing to SOMEONE!

Blogging in a weird way is LONELY. You aren’t quite sure if what you are doing is right. You have no boss or team to run ideas by, it’s just you and your computer spewing out thoughts hoping someone relates.

So do your favorite bloggers a favor today. Pay them back for the content they share. Let them know you are there reading and enjoying. Give them a reason to continue. It’s easy, just leave a comment!

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    Lurker here…love your blogs! Congrats on your pregnancy too! You won’t remember me, but we emailed during Zooma – and I said hi during the race. You motivated me to run Marine Corps Marathon in 2009…thank you! Just had my third boy two months ago so soon I need to get back to running more. Thanks for the inspiration and let me know if you want tips on non-medicated labor! Take care.

    LOVE, LOVE this idea!! :) Blogging is lonely, you’re right!

    Hi Roni, I love reading your blogs! :)

    OMG of COURSE I remember you! I tried for a non-medicated labour the first time around but the pitocin through me for a loop! I’m going to do my best again. :)

    Love this idea Roni! I’ve made a goal this year, that if I go visit a blog I must leave a comment :) glad to know someone created this!

    Don’t worry about it, Roni. I never could get through labor without drugs either…

    Hi Roni, this graphic has been around for a few years so she’s not even giving herself credit anymore, but Aimee at greeblemonkey.com is the artist!

    Lurker here too :) I just have to say I love your sites, I read them every day. Keep doing what you’re doing because you’re doing it great! I’m going to try to leave a comment on any blog I read today.

    Roni–I’m not so much a lurker as a faithful follower;). I love your stuff.

    What a great idea. I think it should be a national holiday so people will have time to do nothing but leave comments on blogs all day :)

    What a great idea! I have friends that tell me they read my blog everyday … but never leave a comment.

    I’m not so mucha lurker, but I’m not a comment fanatic. But here I am! I enjoy reading your stuff!

    I should post this on mine. Google Reader and Wordpress tell me I have a certain number of readers, but my comments sure don’t reflect that. I have no idea who’s out there!

    Hi Roni,
    I’m from Australia and “discovered” your blog through the Marie Claire article and have been totally inspired by your Fit Bloggin conferences. I’m hoping to grow our community over here and do something similar as it looks so awesome. Thank you for the inspiration,

    Hey girl! I read you every day even if I don’t always comment :). As for non-medicated labor, I wasn’t able to do it–had a 19 hour labor with the first and a 13 hour labor with the second. I think women who do non-medicated labor are AMAZING and it should be celebrated and tried.

    This is my first time here, but I’ve heard (in the twitterverse) that you’re awesome so I’m checking things out for myself. =) Nice to “meet” you..!

    All time reader, but elusive commenter. I do ‘speak’ when I have something to say. ;) As you know, I appreciate you Roni.

    I’ve been reading your blog for awhile but never comment! I love that you are so open and honest with things going on in your life; you are very easy to relate to. Thanks for your hard work!

    Hi Roni,
    I guess I count as a lurker too! I leave comments every now and then but read your blog daily! Thank you for the inspiration.

    It as not that I want to replicate your web site, but I really like the style. Could you let me know which style are you using? Or was it especially designed?
