Delurking Week

So we totally stole this idea from Blue Gal, but we think it's a great idea...

She recently wrote this:

I was on chat with a fellow blogger last night, discussing how it can get really discouraging to be blogging regularly and feel as if you're either (a) shouting into a void or (b) doing this just for vanity's sake. The two are,of course, intricately connected.

It's important that we bloggers and you readers remember on occasion to appreciate EACH OTHER. I can't believe the number of readers I have, people I've NEVER met, you guys are an absolute miracle to me. And I'd like to get to know you BETTER, but I can't if you never comment.

[...] I am just getting to the point where I don't understand why someone would read a blog and either feel afraid of commenting or feel that there is some barrier to doing so. I'm not bitching about it, I truly am grateful and amazed by every hit. But if I'm doing something that stops them from adding their two cents at my own blog, I want to change my behavior and be more welcoming.

She has dubbed this week "Delurking Week". In honor of Thanksgiving tomorrow, we would like to join her in thanking our readers and commenters and encouraging lurkers to come out and say something!


Thank you so much to everyone who reads Evil Slutopia - whether you comment or not, but especially if you do. We are more grateful than words can say. These past three years have been a lot of fun and a lot of hard work, but we wouldn't trade it for anything. Well, maybe for a lucrative book deal with film options... but don't worry we're not selling out just yet.

Please, do consider leaving a comment on one of our blog entries that sparked some sort of opinion or reaction... we would love to hear what you think! Or you can just comment on this blog and say hello! Happy Thanksgiving and Happy Eid al-Adha!

Looking forward to hearing from you!

Not really a lurker, but not a regular commenter either. Hello! Your blog is awesome and I really enjoy your posts.

Hello! My name is Mary, and I'm a lurker. There is actually no reason (besides being insanely busy) that I have not commented much on here. I have barely updated my own blog lately but I can't resist to come read all of my regular blogs!

Hallo! I'm a lurker. I enjoy your posts, particularly the ones which highlight wingnutcases like the AFA. You rock!

GHC said...

Hi, my name is GHC... and I'm a lurk-aholic. I really love this blog (mostly the fact that you aren't afraid to call out exactly what is wrong with XYZ. And "dumb things guys say" which is very entertaining). I guess the truth is that I don't comment more out of laziness than anything. Keep writing!

I love you guys!

tehfanglyfish said...

Ok, ok... I'm also a lurker (I've commented a few times, but not all that often I suppose). I love your blog and always get excited when I see it's been updated. You are appreciated, even if I do a crap job of showing it.

Bunny said...

I check this blog every day and post articles to my facebook ALOT and all my friends appreciate your words as I do! I'M HERE, you aren't shouting to an empty void, promise.

Kim said...

You're smart and great and lovely and awesome. I have never commented on any blog before; I'm not sure why, but perhaps I will consider it in the future! Thank-you.

overkill said...

i'm definitely a lurker. and i love your blog!

I'm a lurker. At least i can't remember commenting on anything. I don't say much unless i feel i can say something useful. I enjoy your sarcasm though, especially centred round cosmo, which you clearly read solely for our amusement :P

I post here about once a month, but I check this blog at least twice a week and love reading it! You girls rock, please keep blogging! I really love the mixture of serious and fun posts, from cosmo articles to abortion. It's such a great variety and I've also learned a lot.

What a great idea!! :)

Texbetsy said...

I read most of the posts but rarely comment. Great site though!

Hi, I lurk! I adore your blog but I've only been active on a few LJ communities. Now I'm in grad school and have even less time to read as many blogs as I'd like, but I always catch up on ESC - and may have to start commenting more now. :)

Melissa said...

Hey, this is a different Melissa than the one who commented before...I've probably only commented one or two times on here, but I check for new posts almost every day. I started following your blog last year when I was a senior in college. A friend of mine sent me a link to your post about Joe Biden being a bigger feminist than Sarah Palin. I've been hooked ever since. This blog is awesome and deserves to be widely read.

Thank you so much for the awesome comments, everyone!

Another Melissa said...

Hi, I'm a lurker. I really like your blog, especially your critiques of Cosmo. Thank you!

Sarah said...

Hi, I'm Sarah. Read a lot of feminist blogs, and I come on here every few days. I'm always too shy to comment because I don't really feel I have anything intelligent to add, but I want to say your blog is probably my favourite (which is saying something - I read a lot of blogs). You're awesome and you've opened my mind to a lot of things. Thanks Evil Slutopia!
