I just read about De-Lurking Week over at Miss Zoot's place, and I find it a lovely idea.
Today begins De-Lurking Week in which you are encouraged to comment on blogs that you normally read but don't often comment on. I, myself, am a frequent lurker, but I've been trying to de-lurk more lately, mostly because now as a blogger, I know how much comments mean to me.
Now, as Miss Zoot notes, please don't feel pressured to write anything thought-provoking--even incomplete sentences count. It's well known that the Spelling and Grammar Police go on vacation during De-Lurking Week, so something as simple as "Me no lurky more" is completely acceptable. Don't be shy!
And I'm also going to follow Miss Zoot's lead in donating $1 for each comment to this post and all successive posts this week to charity. Mine will be The American Lung Association in honor of my grandmother, a heavy smoker whose 83rd birthday would've been later this month.
Let's de-lurk together.
