I'm not much of a "blurker".
(You know what I'm talking about, right? "Blog Lurkers"... those folks who regularly read a blog but never reveal their identities or presences. They prefer to exist in the shadows, like guardian angels or phantoms of the blogpera.)
For me, blurking never seems to work.
I mean, I'd love to blurk because it just seems so doggone cool.
You're basically a "fly on the wall", reading others' thoughts, trials, experiences and comments without their collective knowledge. You can anonymously be "part of the action", never exposing yourself (in a G-rated way.) Kind of like "Harriet the Spy meets Cyberspace."
Theoretically, this concept tantalizes me. Yet I'm never satisfied with blurking.
Maybe it's my natural extroversion that keeps me from remaining on the sidelines for long. Or perhaps I'm just unwilling to let my brilliant advice and opinions (that's a joke, by the way...) pass without sharing them with others. It could be that I'm just an intrusive blowhard.
Whatever the reason, I've failed at the blurking game. So if I ever visit your site, please know that if I plan on coming back, I'll be making an appearance sooner or later! And if you're a blurker of Recess for Writers, I encourage you to keep popping in. Hopefully, sooner or later you'll feel compelled to step out from behind the curtain... but if you'd like to remain a blurker, that's a-okay, too. I'm just grateful for your blurking support.
