LOL7

Each year on this day it is Love our Lurkers Day. It was started over at My Bottom Smarts six years ago. The idea is that this is the day when we bloggers thank our lurkers and try to get them to decloak and say hi, how are you? Now generally one doesn't do this day as this blog, with its strangely anal focus, is not quite in their core group. It isn't a spanking blog, though that does happen and it isn't DD, though that happens too and it is hardly D/s. Mutters He is far too mean for that label. Nevertheless one does think the idea of thanking the lurkers is a good one and it also happens to coincide with the start of this blog two years ago so...


Some blogs offer all sorts of incentives... smacks for every comment and things of that nature... to get their lurkers to decloak. That is not going to happen here... none of you can be trusted to use that kind of power responsibly. In fact one isn't sure that lurkers even want to decloak at heart. Oh one understands that some of you are shy or feel that you have nothing to contribute, but honestly many of you like your anonymity. Half the fun of the net is that it is by and large anonymous... well gives the illusion of it at any rate.

No what one wants to do here is thank all of those of you who lurk... the silent majority. Those of you who come to be amused, entertained (often at one small slave's expense) and occasionally somewhat scandalised by the fact that one hasn't won that good slave award... yet. And some of you have been doing it for quite some time and often from far flung places in the world. In fact it is always something of a shock that you ever found one in the first place.

So thank you. All of you; the silent and the vocal alike because it is appreciated J

Saith my husband, two years running now though he didn't remember: "Isn't it a little strange to celebrate lurkers by turning them into not-lurkers?"

Ah, that man.

Happy LOL day!

I'm not quite in the core group either. :)

I just can't lurk. I think I missed that class in college. It was probably at night and I was sleeping.
Happy lurker day.

Oh I agree that most probably do not want to delurk, but then again, as H told me just last night, things change.

So, why not have a blogger holiday and celebrate it all?

Also, I think you enjoy your slightly outside of any discernible group status just a little too much. :)

Lol. I didn't trust them either.

Yours is one of my very favorite corners of Blogland.

Though I do feel it to be in my best interests that the man in charge of my life does Not read here lol.

Thanks to everybody who has decloaked especially readers like pearlesque who really has been here almost since the beginning... that takes courage :D
And one would like to give a very warm welcome to Turfdawg82... frankly one could do with some support. Something that is often lacking on this blog. Glares at ancilla_ksst and aims a swift kick at Vixen

Not at you of course, but in comradery. :)
