Why Don’t People Tell Me These Things?

I feel like something of a rube.

Apparently this week is ‘National De-lurking Week. (I read it on two blogs, so it must be true, right?) Of course, if it’s just something a couple of people made up, then the jokes on me.

I know that some of my readers are new to the blogosphere, so let me give you a quick definition of lurk. According to Merriam-Webster, the definition of lurk is –

to lie in wait in a place of concealment especially for an evil purpose b: to move furtively or inconspicuously c: to persist in staying.

So to de-lurk would be to come out of your place of concealment (I’m guessing you’re not lurking for evil purposes. Of course, if you are lurk with an evil purpose, please let me know what it is) and leave a comment.

To sum up – come out, come out, wherever you are! And leave a comment.
